Rembg is a great tool for removing backgrounds from images.
For ideal results, you need to be careful with the choice of image as the software struggles with fuzzy images. You’ll want to use images with a clear foreground object set on a well-defined background.
The tool runs reasonably fast although it doesn’t make particularly good use of our multi-core processors. And using the GPU version does improve the speed but not as much as we hoped.
