Do you want to get rid of background in your photos or images?

Don’t worry you can remove background easily using your smartphone.

In this article, we will find out which are the best app for Android and iOS to change the background of the photos, to remove it and to superimpose two different photographs into one.

There was a time when photo editing could only be done with professional programs or using free automatic tools whose results, were really low quality.

Today, thanks to the applications, it is possible to create complex photos without needing to be graphics experts, using a smartphone or a tablet, by touching the images with the finger in a precise way trying to select and overlay elements taken from different photos.

1) Background Eraser is the first application to try on Android and iPhone, designed specifically for the purpose of deleting and removing the background of a photo.The app works relatively easily and requires simply to select with the finger the part of the image that must disappear, leaving only the figure in the foreground.

There may be some jagged and dirty edges in the photo during the removal process of the background, but the app will think to fade and soften them, making them part of the image and the edges sharper.

You can then use this application to extract from the photo elements that can then be mounted and superimposed over other backgrounds using other photo editing tools like PicsArt.

2) PhotoLayers for Android and iPhone is an app similar to Background Eraser, specializing in making transparent the background area to be removed so you can then overlay the image extracted on another background and make beautiful photomontages, with this application you can easily combine up to 11 images together.

3) Adobe Photoshop Mix for Android and iOS, is a version of Photoshop oriented to mixing photos, so as to create overlays and photomontages.

With an interface that is very easy to understand and use on the phone screen, you can overlay images by adding multiple layers.

You can then start with the choice of the image to be the background and then add, with the + key, other layers above, so as to choose the elements to be added above.

Each shape or figure can be trimmed and made more immersed in the background in order to seem real and not a shabby photo montage of poor quality.

4) Afterfocus also for Android and iPhone , is the powerful application that allows you to remove elements from a photo with a blur effect of the background (bokeh effect).

While using this app it is always advisable to use the manual blur tool and not the automatic one that is not very precise.

Manually you can then select the part of photo that you want to keep clear, so as to blur everything else.

5) Pixlr for Android and iPhone , has always been one of the best apps of photo editing, which also includes the function to remove the background from an image making it transparent.

The magic wand id Pixlr can be used to remove wallpapers even automatically, only by selecting the area to be deleted.

6) Touch Retouch for Android and iPhone, is not a free app, but for only $2 offers a tool as simple as powerful and automatic to delete and hide elements and figures from a photo, without ruining the background.

7) Auto Background Changer for Android and Photo Background Changer for iPhone are two different apps, but similar because they allow you to remove and change the background of a photo almost completely automatically.

8) PicsArt another of the best photo editing apps for Android and iPhone , includes the tool to split photos into layers and erase the background.

The layer manager is located between the editing tools in the right-hand side of the screen (by pressing the brush and then the set of superimposed squares).

Still, with PicsArt you can then take the pic without a background to overlay it on another image.
