Step 1. Install Picverse Photo Editor
Open the file you’ve downloaded and follow the installation instructions.
Step 2. Import the photo into the program
Launch Picverse Photo Editor. Click the Browse for Images button and choose the image to import or simply drag your photo into the working area of the program.
Step 3. Mark the foreground objects
First, open the Change Background tab. Click the Auto Select button to automatically mark people in the foreground. To manually mark other types of objects, use the green Foreground Brush. Then mark the background with the red Background Brush. Or, if you prefer, you can choose the Lasso tool to draw around your selections. Just set the starting point, and the line will stick to the edge of the object as you move the tool around it. The objects you mark will have a marquee selection around them. You don’t have to be precise here; just click the Next Step button to add more precision to the outline.
Step 4. Specify the borders
Now you can paint over the borders with Mask Brushes to add or subtract areas. Use the Hair Selection tool to refine wispy details in image outlines. Click Next Step again.
Step 5. Change the background
Your subjects will be displayed on a transparent background. Now, you can choose another image or a solid color as your new background. You can also leave the background transparent. To replace a background with a different photo, click Add Image. In the window that opens, choose Upload to use a picture of your own or pick an image from the included background collection. To discard changes, click Reset. When the result looks good to you, click Apply.
Step 6. Save the edited image
To save the photo, click the floppy disk icon in the upper-right corner of the program window, choose the appropriate image format, and click OK.
