With the launch of iOS 16 last fall, Apple included a pretty cool feature in the Photos app that allows iPhone and iPad owners to long-press on a subject in a photo and remove it from the background. It’s a downright impressive feature that I use a few times a week.
Not one to be left behind, Samsung has added a similar feature to the Galaxy S23 lineup of phones as part of its One UI 5.1.
One UI 5.1 is currently rolling out to older Samsung devices, including the S22, S21, and S20 series, along with the Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4. Unfortunately, older Galaxy phones that are also capable of running One UI 5.1 won’t have the Object Cut Out Tool after receiving the update.
Once you have your shiny new Galaxy S23 up and running, open the Gallery app and give the Object Cut Out Tool a try.
