However, still, this image editing technique applying MS Word is not a professional way. In case of a little amount of eCommerce product images or for personal purposes, this method may work, but if you have a high volume of images or if you are a product photographer and have a bulk amount of product photos that need to be edited for the eCommerce stores, you cannot go through this process. It will consume your valuable photography time and even on all types of product images, MS word photo editing tools and ways may not work perfectly. It is sure that in case of multi-color product images, complex product photos, soft edge product images, transparent and translucent background products, etc., you should not use any automation tool for removing the background, rather you have to use professional photo editing software like Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Lightroom, Adobe Illustrator, and more. Image editing manually is always appreciable and acceptable as it produces high-end quality eCommerce product photos.
