Now a days there are so many way to manipulate an image to suit your needs, like removing wrinkles, remove acne, look slimmer. But one of the basic requirements I think is to remove background in images and to remove unwanted objects from photos.
Previously one had to use photoshop to carefully edit photo to remove objects in images but after photoshop’s content aware fill the process became a one step deal. But here is a free online alternative.
