Artifact Issues with Recording and Display of Webcam Video on Mac

Why am I seeing artifacts after selecting the Background Removal options and when using a webcam on my Mac?

The tool for removing your background does not work well with certain color profiles on Mac. To fix this issue, you can switch to the sRGB color profile, using the following steps:

1. Click the Apple menu  > System Settings, and then click Displays  in the sidebar.  (You may need to scroll down to see this item).
2. Click the pop-up menu next to Color profile on the right.
3. Select the profile you'd like to use. In this case, select sRGB.

Using this color profile will give you better results when removing your background and recording your webcam.
