Background Remover is a Photoshop-compatible plug-in for Windows designed by ImageSkill Sofware (www.imageskill.com) that can work with Adobe Photoshop, Corel Paint Shop Pro, Ulead PhotoImpact etc.

The main purpose of the Background Remover is to extract objects from an image. The cutting objects may be used for collage, scrap-book and greeting card creation.
Background Remover cut objects out from images having complex background content with the minimum efforts. In contrast to majority masking program such as: Adobe Magic Extractor, Corel Knock-Out, Microsoft Expression and so on, Background Remover allows to receive perfect result without exact marking of an objects colors. You do not need accurately draw out an object. You can simply mark colors inside and outside object and press Apply. The efficiency of background removing is adjusted by moving one slider only. Our product does not leave noise on texture background (for example: grass, leaves, small stones etc). It gives excellent result on simple gradient background (sky, water etc) also. You can receive attractive results and it takes less time and efforts.
You can cut object step-by-step adding (or removing) object's and background's marks at any moment in order to achieve desirable effect.

There are many additional possibilities - you can feather object mask in order to receive soft transition. You can contract mask in order to avoid undesirable border around objects and you can smooth boundary contour of the object. For the manual correction of the resulting image you can use erase/restore brush. In erase mode brash has hard and soft profile. The first one is used for the full background removing. The second one is intended for the softening of the object boundary in the place of interest.
You can switch between original image and result one and preview the extracted object against a colored matte background.
