Save time with Background Removal

Linearity Curve on iPadtesttest

In Linearity Curve, Background Removal is a one-step process. Simply select your image and click Remove Background. There’s no easy way to remove image backgrounds in Adobe Illustrator. You have to use the Pen tool to make a path and clipping mask. Or try to make a background selection with the Magic Wand tool and delete it.

Unblock your team's creativity with templates

Stuck staring at a blank canvas? With templates, you can jumpstart your team's ideas and bring them to life in no time.
