GrowCut 3.0

Image cutout & matting tool


GrowCut is a foreground extraction (background removal) tool, implemented as a plug-in for Photoshop-compatible graphics editors on MS Windows.

It embodies the GML Matting algorithm formerly available as a separate plug-in.


Create precise cutouts easily by placing a few rough strokes inside and around the object.

GrowCut saves a lot of time when you need to process many photos.


Improve the cutout quality by applying automated matting process that deals with opacity changes (blurry edges, hair, transparent elements). Handle the most complex cases by using effective refinement tools.

The Result

Create clean, photorealistic composites using objects extracted with GrowCut.

Apply filters to the foreground object leaving the background intact, or vice versa.
