Removing background from a photo can be tricky. Working around the face and hair can lead to jagged edges - not to mention the amount of time wasted trying to get the selection tool to find the right edge. Fortunately there is now a better way - remove.bg, a free service that does a great job on removing backgrounds.
This newly created site makes it easy to remove the background in an image. This works really well with photos taken using portrait mode on the latest iPhones.
Description from the Site:
Remove.bg is a free service to remove the background of any photo. It works 100% automatically: You don't have to manually select the background/foreground layers to separate them - just select your image and instantly download the resulting image with the background removed!
At the moment remove.bg only works for photos with at least one person in them. Sorry - please select an appropriate image.

Google is on a mission to get people to shrink their images so pages load faster on mobile devices. They recently launched a new website called Squoosh to make it even easier to compress images.
Make images smaller using best-in-class codecs, right in the browser.
Squoosh is an image compression web app that allows you to dive into the advanced options provided by various image compressors.
Back in Septemeber, I wrote about how ShortPixel is a great compression service. Here are some of the key differences between ShortPixel and Squoosh. Still a good option for many reasons.
Squoosh is great if you just need to compress an image for a blog or Slack. It's a quick fix tool. It would be nice if Google did offer several compression suggestions - such as "Best for Mobile" or "Image Optimized for Slack."
