Step 4: Edit Photo Background with No Quality Loss

In order to edit the background of your image without losing quality, you’re going to have to remove the unwanted background from the image first! This can be done easily enough, just use the tools under the “CUT - OUT” module. Relevant tools include:

  • Paint Areas to Keep Tool: This is a low-opacity green highlighting tool that will allow you to mark the areas that you want to keep.
  • Paint Areas to Remove Tool: This is a low-opacity red highlighting tool that will allow you to remove the background of the image.
  • Quality: Now, if you want to make sure that you’re retaining a high-quality image, you’re going to have to keep the quality slider up high. This will slow the automatic clipping effect, but it will make sure that there is no quality loss.

A couple of extra tools to make the job even easier are:

  • Brush Size Slider: Precisely highlight the spots you want to keep and delete by resizing your brush tool.
