Samsung Image Clipper function: How to use, and eligible Galaxy devices



One UI 5.1’s Galaxy S23-exclusive Image Clipper function has constantly been in talks since the Korean manufacturer announced its expansion for other Galaxy devices. If you are unaware, this function lets you cut out any particular object from an image or a video and save it as a standalone picture. Today, in this article, we will talk about this aforementioned function, what it is, how to use it, and eligible devices. Let’s get started. 

Samsung Galaxy’s Image Clipper: What it is?

Informatively, with the Galaxy S23 series with One UI 5.1, Samsung has launched various novelties, one of which is Image Clipper. Recently, Samsung announced that this function would soon reach other eligible Galaxy devices. The first one in this expansion list is for the Galaxy S22 series, which have got this feature with the April security patch. We can say that it is like an auto-cropping/lasso tool but more clever. 

Let us inform you this feature works for the stock Gallery app and Samsung Internet apps. With its help, you can easily cut any particular object from a picture or video without going through the trouble of underlining the whole thing. The separated cut-out image can be saved as a separate image, which can be shared and copied as well. Not only that but it can also be used as stickers in WhatsApp. 

Nota bene, this function will be inbuilt into the Gallery and Samsung Internet apps so that you don’t need to install an individual app for it. 

Samsung Image Clipper: How to Use?

To use the function in the stock Gallery app, first open the image, then long press on the desired subject (object or person), and that’s it. Now you can drag and drop the cutout image and share it, paste it, or save it to the Gallery. 

In the Samsung Internet apps, first, open the image, press and hold the image, and tap on Clip Subject From Background option. Now your image is ready and the same as the stock Gallery app, you can share it, paste it, or save it as a separate image. 

Besides, in the Samsung Internet app, if you don’t want to go through the options, drag that clipped image with a finger, switch to another app from the multitasking menu, and drop the image to another app that supports inserting images. 

Samsung Image Clipper: Eligible Devices

Let us tell you, as the Image Clipper function is a part of the One UI 5.1 update; there is no doubt that all Galaxy devices with Android 13-based One UI 5.1 will be able to get it. A separate Gallery app update from the Galaxy Store is also needed but for some limited devices only. All the expected eligible devices are listed below.
