Excel 2013 includes a built-in capability that you can use to remove the background of an
image you insert into a workbook. To do so, click the image and then, on the Format tool
tab, in the Adjust group, click Remove Background. When you do, Excel attempts to identify
the foreground and background of the image.
You can drag the handles on the inner square of the background removal tool to change
how the tool analyzes the image. When you have adjusted the outline to identify the
elements of the image you want to keep, click the Keep Changes button on the Background
Removal tool tab to complete the operation.
