The following discovery passed my social feed, and I'm still super excited about this hidden macOS gem.
I do a lot of YT thumbnails these days and usually use remove.bg to remove backgrounds from pictures. But this feature is natively included in macOS these days! 😲

I didn't check when this feature was added to macOS, but the video shows
Edit: It turns out the background removal feature is also available in the Mac Preview app! 👏
