Background Burner Does Quick Background Removal on Your Photos

When you need the object of a picture, but not the background, it can be a pain to separate them, especially if you don't have Photoshop. As long as you don't need pixel-perfect control, Background Burner can do the grunt work for you in a jiffy.

The web app starts by analysing the photo and presenting you with a few options for what it thinks is the right parts of the picture to remove. You can then touch it up with a couple of brushes to either include or exclude certain parts. The edges aren't always perfect, but it gets the job done.

    Sounds like it would save me a bit of fiddling with GIMP all the time, but I'd prefer not to have to rely on a web app. Any recommendations for a Windows-based desktop app?

    nice idea, but failed on the two tests i gave it, i can do better in photoshop in under a minute.
