First, crop and select the parts of the image you want to cut out. You can also use Smart Selection to easily cut out your portrait. For example, if you’re in a rush and don’t have time to carefully cut out your face. Luckily, YouCam Perfect has an auto-cut feature for portraits. Once you’re in the Cutout menu, just click the user icon on the bottom, to the left of the checkmark. It will use artificial intelligence to automatically select your face. Then, you can use the Eraser tool to clear any parts you might have highlighted by accident. Finally, click the checkmark on the bottom right. Congratulations, your photo is now cut inside the template! Reposition, resize, or flip the sticker to finish your new look.
