Alternatively, select Format and then select Remove Background option.

— Select Mark Areas to Keep and use the free-form drawing pencil to mark the areas on the picture that you want to keep.

Step 6: Select Keep Changes and you’re done.

Using Microsoft Designer

Step 1: Launch Designer and sign in with your Microsoft account.

Step 8: Your focus object has now been lifted from the background of the picture. Select it and drag it to one side of the canvas.

Step 9: Delete the remainder of the picture from the canvas area: Click and drag over the canvas area to select it, then press Delete.
