If you’re tired of firing up Photoshop for lightweight image editing tasks, this little tool is good news for you. Called Remove.bg, it can clear out the background of an image in seconds, no lassoing or any other editing hassle required. Because it uses AI trained on images of people, Remove.bg only works on photos of humans for now, immediately separating subject from background and leaving your image clean and ready for whatever you plan to do with it.
While Remove.bg has attracted a bit of attention before, we noticed it this time around when Twitter user Matt Haughey tested it out on Gritty, everyone’s favorite ambiguously anthropomorphic leftist meme. And it worked! Gritty is people, too.
