There are three options for the Quality level. As this filter is using machine learning, this is to tell it some preferences but does not have any sharp definitions:

  • “accurate” – Prefers image quality over performance.
  • “balanced” – Prefers processing that balances image quality and performance (Default).
  • “fast” – Prefers performance over image quality.

Over time, with updates to hardware and MacOS, the quality and speed of this filter will certainly increase.

Background Types

In the Filter Settings, you have multiple options for the appearance of the removed background to choose from:

Background Types 
TransparentThis leaves the background as transparent areas. This is useful if you already have a background in your Layer Stack.
Blurry BackgroundIf you don’t want to reveal too much of your current location this is a good option. You can define the amount of blur applied to the background.
Single ColorThe background will be replaced by a single color of your choice.
Gradient (Left to Right)A horizontal gradient will be the new background.
Gradient (Top to Bottom)A vertical gradient is generated and inserted as the new background.
Custom ImageThis option gives you great flexibility to put anything in your background.
