Remby

This Swedish startup helps bloggers and simple site creators with a unique web tool.

I designed and implemented a PowerPoint-like web application using HTML5, and developed the back end using Python with the Google App Engine.

One of the most challenging tasks was the implementation of the algorithm and UI for removing backgrounds from images. Not only solid white or other colors, but any background. This is done with a little help from the user who provides marking points.

The http://remby-os.appspot.com/ link is kept for historical reasons since the project has now been shut down, with only a few elements still functioning.
