AI Background Remover Plugin for GIMP

Published on:

This is a Gimp plugin that allows you to remove the background of images with just one click, and it does it through layer masks, so it removes the background non-destructively.

This plugin is based on the rembg tool, which is an open-source AI tool for removing background.

Also, this plugin works on your PC, so you don’t need internet access to use it.

To get this plugin working, first you have to install the rembg tool.

To install this, you have to run this command in the terminal if you are on Linux or in PowerShell if you are on Windows. (Make sure you open the terminal or PowerShell as administrator)

There are two commands for installing this: one is for the CPU only, and another is for the GPU, so decide which one you want to install.

CPU support:

pip install rembg

GPU support:

pip install rembg[gpu]

After installing this, you now install the Gimp plugin in Gimp.

Now extract the plugin and open it in a text editor. Then replace the user with your own PC’s username, and if you are on Linux, replace this whole path with your own path where rembg is installed.
