BG Eraser

BG Eraser is exactly what the name suggests—an app for erasing the backgrounds and other elements from your photos. Using artificial intelligence it detects all of the important objects in an image and enables you to edit or erase them. You can erase backgrounds with a single tap, change the color of any object in a photo, pixelate faces, and much more. Note: at least some features are hidden behind a “pro” subscription service, but you get a free 3-day trial.
