Compound Shaped Object

Single Color Contrasting Background:

This time, we went for more challenges with the compound shaped object. It is an ornament photo with a number of holes and curves. Being a compound shaped, it is harder to remove a background from it than the basic and simple shaped objects.

Firstly, we tried to remove the background of the photo in autoclipping.com.  We selected the background and removed it, but it didn’t look professional. This tool could not touch the background color inside the cell. It has ruined the edge and did harm to the object shape. Check out the triangle locket that looks harmed.

Then we tested the photo in Background Burner. But, the flying dragon failed to reach into the chain-cell. It only could remove the background from the outside of the object. This tool has destroyed the link between the cells. Its result is too much unprofessional.

After that, this image was uploaded in Clippingmagic.com. This tool is pretty much better that the other two. But, yet there were lots of cells, you can see the background inside them. The locket has lost its original shape. It cannot gain the realistic look.

However, at the end, we tried to edit the image in photoshop. We applied manual hand drawn technique for removing the background. See the photo, we cut off the background and applied transparent background and a black color. In both cases, the photo looks professional and perfect.

Conclusion:
These tool have a little bit of success in the case of a compound object, but still they are not professional. They have many drawbacks.  They cannot perform well in the curve, edge, into the cells, etc. On the other hand, the manual editing can perform everywhere and provide gorgeous photos for using.
