What is Background Removal?
Background removal, is in theory, rather simple. It is an image editing service that removes the background – often replacing it for something simpler such as a plain background (typically white), but can also be edited to meet your needs or requirements. However, although the concept of removing a photo background seems relatively straightforward, it can be rather difficult in practice and as such, your company may benefit from Cut Out Bees. We do the hard work for you! This will not only save you and your company time, but you can be assured that your work will always be completed to the highest possible quality and within a timely manner.
No order is too big! In fact, we’d be happy to take daily orders of anywhere from 1,000 to 10,000 per day as we are a high volume image editing service.
When Should I Use Background Removal?
Studies have shown that background removal works best when you are trying to sell a product to a consumer. Think of the advertisements you see on online retailers such as Amazon, Etsy or eBay – the product is nearly always laid out against a plain background. The same can be said more traditional product catalogues, or even televised advertisements. This allows the potential buyer to get a clear idea of what the product looks like – so they have a better idea of what they are buying. As it is the only thing in the photograph it means that the product will be the sole focus of the customers’ attention and you are able to draw attention to minor details that may otherwise be overlooked. When you have control over an image in this way, you can change a customers’ perception of the product quite quickly. In fact, many online retailers advise/demand their sellers to only use images with a white background. This has been proven to help increase sales and garner interest in products.
Therefore, you should consider background removal for your images if you:
- – Own a business or company that specializes in e-commerce
- – Want to show off your products to the best of your ability
- – Want to increase sales of your products online
- – Want to help your product stand out in a busy, competitive marketplace
- – Want to focus on a specific part of your product (i.e a close-up image of buttons or other small details)
- – Wish to demonstrate your professionalism and present yourself, your company (and by extension, your products) to potential buyers as a trusted, industry expert.
How Does Background Removal Work?
There are many different tools and software used in background removal, whether you are using photoshop or a similar programme. With so many different options available, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed or confused as to which option you could take. Additionally, if you are aiming to complete this work yourself, the process will take up a lot of time – time that could be better spent elsewhere.
However, our highly trained experts have a minimum of 7-10 years of extensive experience in the industry, especially in relation to clipping path services and as such, know the best practices to achieve the optimal result.
Often, your editor will use the Pen Tool to cut out the image from the background. This is a lengthy process, and though there are other options available that would speed up the editing process, we are committed to quality editing and therefore take the extra time to ensure perfection is always achieved. Once the image has been successfully ‘cut’ from the background, your editor will then proceed to zoom into the image to ensure every single pixel is perfect. This will likely include them completing other editing services, such as colour correction, shadow creation, model masking and model retouching. The result? High-quality product photos that will be sure to catch the eye of a potential customer.
Furthermore, we have a 100% customer satisfaction rating and are able to work to tight deadlines. If you require a particularly quick turnaround, we are also able to work on urgent orders and requests. In fact, we offer 24/7 support to our valued customers, so do not hesitate to get in touch with any queries or questions you might have.
