Microsoft is enhancing the Windows Photos app with new features, including the ability to effortlessly remove backgrounds from images. The latest update, version 2023.11110.8002.0, is currently available to Windows Insiders and offers several improvements to the existing user experience.
The standout feature of this update is the background removal tool, recently introduced to Microsoft Paint and now integrated into Windows Photos. This tool allows users to remove backgrounds from images with a single click, a feature common in other photo editing programs.
Microsoft's update is going to change things
Once the background is removed, users have the option to save or copy the edited image to the clipboard. They can also replace the background with a solid color of their choice. While the results may not always be perfect, the addition of such features in Microsoft's pre-installed programs is a welcome enhancement for everyday tasks like internet browsing and photo viewing.
The app also includes a color picker tool for users who wish to replace the removed background with a solid color. This tool allows for precise color selection by providing options to choose from a palette, enter a hex color code, or specify RGB values.
These updates to the Windows Photos app are part of Microsoft's continuous efforts to improve the functionality and user experience of its software, making daily digital tasks more efficient and enjoyable for users.
