Background replacement is another special photo retouching technique that removes the original background from an image and replaces it with a different background.
The new background replacement can be for many reasons. An image that has a sky with too many clouds is replaced with a clear blue sky, a grey, bland sky is replaced with a billowy filled cloud sky. The terrific image that you took of your daughters in front of the house where both were smiling perfectly could really be improved by blurring the background or removing it completely.
Like background removal, background replacement is a very common image manipulation.
In a previous post, I directed you to an article on Shopify’s site that discussed the various tools to remove a background from your photos. Here is that link again – click here.
