We also open this image firstly in autoclipping.com and run the process for withdrawing background. What other options the tool provides, we applied, but see that this tool fails to work properly. It removes background well that makes a good sound, but it ruins the natural shadow, delicate edge, pixels, etc. It also reduces resolution and overall quality of the photo. So, we are not satisfied working with this image in this tool.

clipping magic2

Clippingmagic.com also cannot provide our desired background removed image. When we upload our image, it offers us two tools for selecting the foreground and background of this image and removes the background. But, it cannot maintain the delicate edge, holes, soft shadow, background color on the subject, pixels, etc. It destroys the quality of the whole image that also compels us to find service of another tool.

Finally, we work on this image in Photoshop for removing background manually. Opening this image in Photoshop we crate path using Pen tool around the photo. We select the background and hit the delete button and we get a background remove image. Then, we place a white background color and apply necessary shadow. By this process, we can keep the image quality as we desired. It doesn’t harm, even a little bit regarding pixels, shadow, soft edge, holes, background color on the subject and more areas. It makes us satisfied more than that of the three automatic background removing inline tools.
