AKVIS SmartMask lets you select objects on images and remove backgrounds.
We've tried to use both modes and as many tools as possible to get you acquainted with the program.
The procedure took 10 minutes.

This example has been created in AliveColors, but you can use any other photo editor compatible with AKVIS SmartMask plugin. Alternatively, you can use the standalone version of SmartMask.
By default the plugin uses the Auto mode.
Use the Drop Area Pencil to outline the background.
The program will take into consideration the drawn outlines and generate two zone types: the area marked with the red pencil will be deleted (the points in this area have Transparency = 100%), the areas marked blue will be kept (the points in this area have Transparency = 0%).
The clothes have been cut out very well, but in general the result does not fully satisfies us. We continue our work.
The result is much better indeed. Now we have to remove the stains on the background.
Activate the Magic Brush and use the eyedropper tools to pick up the colors for the Keep Colors and Drop Colors lists. Choose the color of the hair for the Keep Colors list and the color of the wall behind the girl for the Drop Colors list.
In this mode, the Magic Brush removes the points having the same colors as those listed in the Drop Colors field and colors close to them, and restores the points having the same colors as those listed in the Keep Colors field and colors close to them.
Draw over the hair using the Magic Brush tool.
Here is the result:
Increase the value of the Sensitivity parameter of the brush and draw again over the hair.
Use the Magic Brush again. Now the hair looks natural!
Now you can add any background and enjoy the result.
