How does Background Removal work?

Background Removal - also known as Image Matting - is the process of extracting the foreground image from the background image. It is especially important for video and image editing, as it allows us to create visual effects without the need for a green screen.

Image Matting differs from Image Segmentation in the sense that Image Segmentation will label each pixel as belonging to a specific group (e.g. an object, person, ...) within the image. In Image Matting, pixels can belong to multiple groups (i.e. a foreground pixel might also belong to a background pixel), this is what we call a "Partial" or "Mixed" Pixel.

The process of Background Removal can be described in a few simple steps:

  1. PreProcess: We "simplify" the image and reduce noise.
  2. Infer: We run the image through our AI model that splits the background from the foreground through Image Matting.
  3. PostProcess: After the result was achieved, we carefully remove the background pixels from the image, retaining the correct alpha values of the "matte".

We’re here to help
