Soms wil je een voorwerp uit een foto of afbeelding losmaken van de achtergrond, bijvoorbeeld voor je webwinkel. Als je nu geen Photoshop tot je beschikking hebt, is Background Burner een leuk en bruikbaar alternatief.

 

Selecteer of sleep een afbeelding naar het scherm en laat het programma zijn werk doen. Je kunt daarna de meest geschikte uitzoeken en eventueel nog bijwerken en een andere achtergrond kiezen.
