Microsoft has now made it very simple for you to remove any background or replace its color directly from the Photo App. Even though this feature was introduced with the Microsoft Paint back in the surface event.

Make Transparent Background in Windows Photo App

1. Double-click on the image to Launch the photo using the Photo App.

2. Click on the edit button or use the shortcut key called Ctrl + E.

3. Following the above steps, click on the Background Blur Icon. There you can find three options that you can use to blur, remove, or replace the background color.

In my case, I have chosen the option called “Remove” and you can see the result below.

Even though the default remove option is quite simple for making a transparent background sometimes it does not accurately remove the background. In such cases, I recommend you simply turn on the background brush tool and manually go around the object and remove or restore (Add or Subtract) the specific areas around the object which was not selected clearly.

Once the changes were made around the object and you are completely sure of your selection simply click on Apply to save the changes.

After you have made the changes, simply click on the save options, and choose Save as copy, Save, or save to clipboard. In my case, I will be saving it in my system as a copy.
