PhotoScissors saves the day when you quickly need to cut out a person or an object to paste it to another picture, or to remove background from a photo. You don't need any specific skills or professional software for a perfect image clip: few mouse strokes produce an accurate clipping path that can be further enhanced with fine brushes.
PhotoScissors provides an extremely easy way to cut a background an image. Instead of trying to accurately enclose a region with the Lasso or Magic Wand tools in cumbersome professional graphical editors, you quickly mark areas you want to cut out and areas you would like to preserve, and the program automatically does the rest. Thanks to optimized analysis of the clipping edges, you don't have to hunt for pixels trying to select an unwanted background. PhotoScissors is easy background removal with minimum efforts!
PhotoScissors easily handles complex semi-transparent objects like hair and allows you to get rid of the background of such pictures as easy as with any other scenes. While in other tools you have to deal with hair literally pixel by pixel, with PhotoScissors you save hours, because the Magic Marker tool efficiently deals with transparent objects too.
Cutting out a background from photos is a popular picture editing procedure. Indeed, there are dozens of possible applications for PhotoScissors: uploading product pictures to eBay or Amazon, preparing photos for job seeking or dating websites, replacing a boring background with a more picturesque one or a solid color, creating photo jokes, collages, retouching vacation photos for fun or for a better impression and plus many more.
In the real world, some objects are transparent. And removing backgrounds from photos with such objects on them is pain. But with PhotoScissors you can effortlessly change one background to another thanks to the transparent marker tool that denotes areas that should retain both foreground and background textures.

Photoscissors makes it an easy and time saving excercise to remove backgrounds from photos - easier than in Pixelmator and easier than in Photoshop. It's great for people who don't know - or don't want to learn - how to use Pixelmator or Photoshop and the results are better than a beginner could obtain in either Pixelmator or Photoshop. It's s a simple case of painting the part (or parts) of the image you want to keep with the green brush and the parts you don't want to keep with the red brush. The software is quite "intelligent” in that it is able to recognise, without explicit user input, parts of the object that should be kept and which it would be impossible to accurately paint green. Spectacles for example seem to be identified by the software as belonging to faces despite the fact that sepctacles jut out of the side of faces. Quite impressive. The recent update does seem to have smoothed out the edges of the "cut” image although, and I can't be sure about this, perhaps the resulting image is not quite as sharply cut from the background as in the previous version of Photoscissors 2. In any case I use Pixelmator to smooth out the "cut” image - to ever so slightly blur the edge so that I can blend the image into a new background using Pixelmator. I would prefer the option to have a more rugged but possibly pixel accurate cut out that I could then smooth in an image editing program. It's a great, unique and very effective product though and I would not hesitate to recommend it.
