Remove Backgrounds from Images With Instant Mask

There are times when you might want to remove the background from a certain image. Using Photoshop or other can be a bit tedious. Instant Mask is a which provides users with a 2 step process to completely remove the background from any image.


Instant Mask provides users with two markers, the yellow one is basically used to mark the Keep area, and the red one is used to mark the Remove area. Once you have marked the area, you can click on the preview button to see the results.

If you are satisfied with the image you can save it as a separate image or overwrite the current one.

Techie Buzz Verdict

Instant Mask is a easy to use background remover. All you need to know is how to move your mouse and select the proper area and it will get the job done for you.

However, we saw just one problem with this software. Once you mask a image, there is no way to undo or remove the masks unless you reload the image, this can get a bit problematic. So you will have to do trial and error all the time, and this may mean that you take more than 3-4 attempts to get the perfect picture.

If the software developer adds a undo and redo button it would be awesome. In addition to that they could also add a way to completely remove the marked masks from the image, so that we could start from scratch without having to reload the image again. Sadly, because of this we have to rate the software much lower than we would have liked to.
