With Photoroom's Assisted Cutout feature, you can remove parts of an image more easily. For example, if you have an image showing apples and oranges on a table, you can use Assisted Cutout to remove the apples.

If you make a mistake, you can also use Assisted Cutout to restore any parts that you removed accidentally.

The following sections explain how to use Assisted Cutout on Android devices. But the steps are similar for iPhone and iPad.


Assisted Cutout on a new image

When you add an image, Photoroom automatically removes the background. You can use Assisted Cutout to remove entire foreground objects or parts of foreground objects.
