PhotoScissors provides an extremely easy way to cut a background an image. Instead of trying to accurately enclose a region with the Lasso or Magic Wand tools in cumbersome professional graphical editors, you quickly mark areas you want to cut out and areas you would like to preserve, and the program automatically does the rest. Thanks to optimized analysis of the clipping edges, you don't have to hunt for pixels trying to select an unwanted background. PhotoScissors is easy background removal with minimum efforts!

Thought I would give this a try to see what all the fuss about, and the fact that there's a trial version is a positive.

Would say that it's OK, but not a 5-star for me because it didn't really seem any easier than other masking tools I've used. To get good results you really have to work at it, so that's zooming in, reducing the masking 'pen' size to one or two pixels and getting into the fine detail of the subject. Yes it does what it says, but it took me a good 20 minutes plus to get good results when trying to extract a subject in a fairly simple image. To be fair, that's what I expect from this sort of tool - results will depend on how much effort you put in, so take the author's claims of not having to hunt for pixels you want to remove with a pinch of salt, as that's exactly what I had to do.

Don't trust the ratings for this software or any other product of the developer. Apparently the ratings come from inside the company itself. See https://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/43266/photostitcher
MacUpdate, please remove this rating. I was considering to purchase this software but after finding this out, no thank you.
