Canva Background Removal Update!

Here, I’m sharing a new Canva Update for Background Removals. We already know that you’re able to remove your background…right? But here’s the thing sometimes in Canva when you use the automatic background remover, it does not remove everything.

For example, in one of my pictures, when I opened it up and remove the background, I can see that the wall behind my hair is still showing. And I want that to be clean and clear as well.

Has it ever happened to you? 

Now, thanks to Canva’s new background removal Update, you’re able to use the erase and restore tool.

You can see it here.

So, what you’re going to do is tap on the picture, remove the background, and then select the tool that you want to use to either restore some that the background deleted or erase a piece that you don’t want. 

One quick tip is to zoom the picture so that you’re able to see close to the piece that you want to change. Then, select the brush size and you’re good to go.
