Documentation

There are two more packages to import because we want to show you the effect of removing the background.

# import packages
from IPython.display import display
from PIL import Image
import os
from rembg import remove

We used Show Image piece of code here. Get more information here: How to show image in Jupyter Notebook.

# variables:
path="/home/apjanusz/images/goryl.png"
size=500,500

# code:
with Image.open(path) as i:
	i.thumbnail(size)
	display(i)

This simple piece of code allows you to remove the background from any image and save it in any directory:

# variables:
input_image = "/home/apjanusz/images/goryl.png"
output_image = os.path.join(r"", "gorylOutput.png")

# code:
with open(input_image, "rb") as i:
	with open(output_image, "wb") as o:
		input = i.read()
		output = remove(input)
		o.write(output)

Let us show you the final effect:

# variables:
path="/home/apjanusz/gorylOutput.png"
size=500,500

# code:
with Image.open(path) as i:
	i.thumbnail(size)
	display(i)

Conclusions

As you can see, removing the background from image isn't that hard. All you need is a little willingness and a good teacher such as MLJAR Studio.

We will be happy to teach you :)
