Although it removes background well, there is no tutorial on how to use its indirect interface. First, you have a replacement background, whether it’s a solid color, gradient, cloud, text portrait, or a stock image. Next, you have to select an inconspicuous cut tool in the bottom right. The Draw tool is selected by default, and you have to draw over your foreground. Once you’re done, the app merges your selection with the background. The issue with this process is that foreground selection naturally comes before a replacement is selected for the background, confusing users. However, it’s a great app if you want to add a bokeh effect to your photos instantly.
