Remove Background

2. Mark the Areas
Microsoft Word 2010
compares the colors in your picture and makes a reasonable guess. The suggested background is displayed in a pink mask. The areas that will be kept are shown in full color.


3. Edit the Marks
Look carefully at your picture. In this example, I noticed that some of the children's socks and shoes needed to be marked Areas to Keep.


4. Keep the Changes
When you click on Keep Changes, you will see your picture without the background. You can change your Marked Areas by clicking again on Remove Background. Your background marks will still be there if you wish to add or remove some areas.
