Share the edited images without the background

Once you’ve edited the photo, you’ll want to share the edited photo with your contacts. However, none of the steps above will help you share the photos with someone over iMessage without the background. You can just drag and drop the objects from the photo and follow these steps.

  1. Open an image and long-press the object until you’ve got haptic feedback.
  2. Long-press the highlighted objet and then drag it with one finger.
  3. Using another finger, swipe and go to another app.
  4. Open the iMessage app, select a chat, and drop the dragged object to the chat box.

The object from the images will appear in the chat without the background. You’ll be able to send the photos with a single tap. This will be helpful when  you’re looking to share quick stickers on iMessage from the images saved in photos.
