PhotoRoom's cutout options make it easy to remove the background from your images. There are several cutout options available, and they offer different levels of control:
The "basic cutout" happens automatically when you import an image into PhotoRoom. It removes the background and is designed to identify people and products automatically.

You can also apply the Basic Cutout to an image by using the Remove Background tool on the Create page.
Note: We often update and improve the Basic Cutout algorithm.
With Assisted Cutout, you control which parts of an image are included in your design. PhotoRoom assists with the boundary detection, making it easier for you to remove and restore objects, people, and parts of the background.
For details, see How to use Assisted Cutout on mobile devices.
HD Cuts are advanced cutout options that are available on the Pro plan. They are even better at detecting the boundaries of objects and people in photos. Try them if the default cutout did not produce the result you want.
To use the HD cuts:
Edit a design.
You can either import a new image from the Create page or select one of the images from Your Content.
Select a foreground layer, for example, Product.
Scroll down and select Cutout.
Select one of the HD cuts.
The HD cuts are:
Designed for cutting around people in a photo. It's great for hair!
Designed for cutting out foreground objects with more accuracy around the edges.
Is great at defining the edges and worth trying if the other HD options are unsuitable.
Advanced cutting out of graphical elements. Very useful for images containing illustrations, logos, etc.
Note: PhotoRoom applies the Person HD cutout automatically if it detects people in a photo. It applies the Object HD cutout automatically if it detects objects such as products.
Lets you manually remove and restore parts of your image, without AI assistance for detecting the object boundaries.
Typically, you would only use Manual Cutout if Assisted Cutout was unavailable for some reason.
