How can I get rid of an irregular shaped background from a photo?
on Feb 7, 2017 at 11:23:01 pm

I'm playing with some photos, and a few of them were scanned on top of a white background that often is off center. The problem is, when I try to crop it, I end up getting part of the photo because the edges of what I want to get rid of (the background) dont follow straight lines according to the X/Y access. Any thoughts on how to do this? I'm attaching a photo as an example. It's easy to center the photo by rotating it, but I want to get rid of the white edges around it to play with it more. I want just the photo.

Straighten it in Photoshop first.

Good call. Can I straighten it in any programs that come with my Mac? I dont have Photoshop.

Affinity Photo, might also prove to be a winner.

Yup- if you can spare the $USD49 worth every penny.
