@baidoct it works well for products and people but Smart Pix is better generally:
@robmoore what tends to be better about Smart Pix? Just better cutouts around complex areas? Genuinely curious for the sake of quality. 🕺
@baidoct I used prior, but I definitely prefer Trace. It's faster, and you get a more hi-res image in return.
@baidoct @robmoore tried Floom's smart-pix and it simply gave me two FAILED errors on both photos I tried. Trace handled both these photos perfectly. I'm used to painstakingly removing backgrounds with Photoshop and the results Trace gave were as good if not better than I could have done in a fraction of the time. Based on my results today, I will use Trace from here on. Smart Pix didn't even try to remove the bg from my photos. Great job Trace team!
@baidoct @patrick_villella smart-pix was temporarily down from the traffic, sorry about that, all images that failed have been reprocessed :)
This is such an awesome example of "SEO project marketing" (shoutout @harrydry) and I'm sure it'll drive loads of new customers to Sticker Mule. I was a big fan of when it came out - good to see deep learning models being democratized and making their way into real world products! I'm curious if you could give any detail on the model you're using - are you using UNet and what dataset did you use? Here's an open source implementation of background removal using UNet if anyone is interested: Congratulations on the launch! :)
@alxcnwy Yep - A really great side project. Especially since you have to create an account to be able to use it haha!
@harrydry @alxcnwy thanks so much for the kind words and feedback!
