Image background removal with Clipping Magic

As I have mentioned in the "Image selection" tutorial, removing the background in an image makes for a much better pixelated quilt pattern result.

Here is a video showing you how to easily remove your image background using a website we have found called Clipping Magic.

Here is a comparison of YouPatch pixelation with and without background removal.


             Without background removal                      

             With background removal

With a clean background, YouPatch is able to focus on detail in the more important areas in the foreground.

NOTE: Clipping Magic is no longer a free site. Prices charged are, in my opinion, very reasonable. (April 2014)

Let me know how you go with this site!
