Use Clippingmagic to Remove Image Backgrounds

Remove Image BackgroundsThis very short post shows you have to use ClippingMagic to remove Image Backgrounds.

Often we want to merge two images when we are creating a Print on Demand product.  At least one of the images usually need to have the background removed so that it won’t overwrite the other image when we merge the two.   My preferred Editor (Photoshop Elements ) has a tool to do this, but sometimes ClipplingMagic.com does a better job.

This four minute video will give you an idea of how how to Remove Image Backgrounds. using ClippingMagic.

Clipping Magic

The steps are easy.

  1. Navigate to ClippingMagic.com
  2. Upload the image you want to work on.
  3. Click on the Green Icon and drag it around some of the area you want to keep
  4. Click on the Red Icon and drag it around some of the area you want removed.
  5. Make small adjustments if some areas are deleted or kept erroneously
  6. Download your “Clipped” version of the image.

That is really all there is to it.  The nice thing is that you do NOT have to carefully outline the section you want to keep.  ClipplingMagic does a good job of finding edges and moving the line between the area to keep and the area to delete over to those edges.

Have a Great Day – Oh Hale Yes!

P.S.  Here is a post with a list of the various posts that contain some useful information.  Some are about Gearbubble.com and some are about Photoshop Elements.  Some are about both.  Click Here

Force Facebook Pixels to be Assigned for Every Product Launched on Gearbubble

Gearbubble Sellers need to make sure that they add their Facebook Pixel to each product they launch.  The data this provides is critical to running Facebook Ads at a profit.  This is an easy way to force the Facebook™ pixel to be assigned during every product launch.

There is a short video at the bottom of the post where I walk through this same material.

The Way Assigning Facebook Pixels is Usually Taught

The way I usually see Facebook Pixels Assignment being taught is to wait until after the product has been launched and then when (and IF) you click on the SETTINGS button, make the assignment there.   This works, but it is easy to forget and there are products that get launched as upsells or as options that you may never take the time to do the SETTINGS.   In addition there is no easy way to tell at a glance if the pixel has been set.  You have to go to the Sales Page and see if the Facebook Pixel Helper fired.  (In case you missed this one, there is an extension for the Chrome Browser call the Pixel Helper.  When you land on a page the small icon at the top of the browser tells you how many Pixels fired when the page loaded.  You can also click on the little icon and a pop-up screen tells you which pixels fired.)

Here is the way I see assigning Pixels taught the most.

The Settings Button
Force Facebook Pixels to be Assigned - Settings ButtonAfter a product on Gearbubble is launched you can see it in the Dashboard.  Click on the SETTINGS button

 

TRACKING PIXELS SCREEN
Force Facebook Pixels to be Assigned

You need to click on the TRACKING PIXELS Button.

TRACKING SCREEN

The next step is to Click the small Icon

Fill in the Facebook Pixel

If you remember the first digit of your pixel (code (and if that is unique), you can type that and Windows will show you what you types in the past.  Otherwise you must go and find the pixel ID code in Facebook or wherever you have stored it.  BTW, this screen is the only place inside Gearbubble where you can tell that the Pixel has been set.   As you can see if takes several clicks on each product to get to this screen.

A Better Way to Force Facebook Pixels to be Assigned

We need to go into the Settings and set up our Pixel code.  This is a one time process.

Open the Settings System

#1 – Click on your name in the upper right hand corner of the Gearbubble Screen

#2 – Click on Settings

SETTINGS SCREEN

Click on Default Settings

Default Settings Screen

Click on TRACKING PIXELS Buton

Tracking Pixels Screen

 

#1 –   Make sure the check box beside “Use the new Facebook Pixel is checked.

#2 – Click on the DEFAULT SETTINGS Button

Default Settings Screen

Click on the CREATE NEW DEFAULTS Button

New Defaults Screen
There are three “tabs” on this screen, even thought it is hard to tell.  Click on the ADD TRACKING PIXELS” tab

Add Tracking Pixel Screen

#1 – Click on the little Icone

#2 – Add a Name you will recognize for your Pixel – Mostly used if you have more than one pixel (advanced, heavy users only)

#3 – Fill in the Pixel ID Code

#4 – Click on the CREATE button (not shown)

You are done.  As noted above, you only need to go through this process once.

Force Facebook Pixels to be Assigned – In Action

When you launch a Campaign on Gearbubble, there are three screens.

  1. Upload the Creative
  2. Fill in Information like the Title, URL, Tags and any edits you like to make to the default product Description.
  3. Defaults Screnn – most of us just click UPDATE here

Now you have something to do here.

NOTE:  The product is actually already launched before you do anything with this sc

reen.  If you close this screen or shut down your computer or lose your Internet Connection, the product is actually launched.

\

Now if you just click on the UPDATE Button (#4), you will get the (#2) pink bar at the top of the screen,  This screen will not go away until your set the Pixel.

#3 – Click on the Drop-Down Menu under SETUP YOUR PIXEL and you will see the Pixel NAME we just created during the Pixel Setup Process.

#1 – Pick the Name your gave your pixel.

#2 – Now you can click UPDATE and the screen will disappear and you will be back at your Dashboard.

Choose the name and then click UPDATE.  Your pixel will be set.

This process literally forces you to set the Facebook tracking pixel during the campaign launch.  It take two clicks, you can’t forget to do it, and you don’t have to look up the Pixel ID code with every product launch.
