Step 1: Head over to the Adobe Background Remover page and click the Upload your photo button. 

Step 2: On the next page, drag and drop your image onto the designated area or click the Browse on your device link to upload a photo. Alternatively, you can also use a sample image provided below if you’re just looking to test the tool. 

Step 3: Once the image has been uploaded, Adobe will process it and remove the background on its own. 

Step 4: After the background has been removed, you can either customise the image further to refine the cutout. add a filter or another background entirely. If not, you can download the cutout by clicking the download button.
