Depth Background Eraser opens Portrait mode photos that were taken using the dual cameras on iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8 Plus, or iPhone X, and uses the depth information stored in the photo to let you remove the background extremely quickly by simply swiping a slider to set the cut-off point.
You can preview the resulting image for free and then once you're happy with it you can purchase an upgrade to enable you to export it as a transparent PNG file. You can use that file as-is, or import it into your favorite image editing apps to refine the results and apply whatever creative effects you like.
For the best results, try using images taken in bright lighting conditions (preferably outdoor daylight) and with the photo framed so that the ground isn't visible immediately underneath the foreground subject that you want to isolate.
Feedback is very welcome. Please email email@example.com. I aim to respond to all support questions within one working day.

Ratings and Reviews
Does not work properly with iPhone X. Took several photos and only portions of the background would erase leaving jagged edges and portions not erased at all.
Works Quite Well
The app works quite well! Please be aware that the app is only a preview; it won’t let you export until you pay to upgrade. I exported an edited photo and it worked quite well.
For older reviewers: please read the pop-up that shows up on the app when you try to edit a photo. You need to have iOS 11 installed, the picture must be taken in Portrait mode, and you can’t use any photos taken on iOS 10. I own an iPhone 7 Plus, and it works just fine.
App doesn’t work on my iPhone 7+. Says “no depth information present.”
Needs work. Wait for an update.
