Overview

This Hotpot AI service removes the background from pictures. We optimized this service to cleanly extract people and products, which is ideal for e-commerce pictures, profile photos, and marketing graphics. In more technical terms, we utilize state-of-the-art object segmentation models to pinpoint the location of important foreground objects like a person or a car. Then we separate the objects from the background with alpha masking and apply finishing touches to ensure the smoothest results.

For this service, pictures are saved only with user permission. For storage costs and user privacy, we only retain images for as long as necessary to run our machine learning models, and do not store photos beyond this.
