Remove Image Background API FAQ

The Remove Background API supports the most popular image formats, including JPG, PNG, and WebP image file types. If your website can handle it, odds are, so can we.
Picsart Remove Background API is designed to be easily integrated into any software and/or application. HTTP-based, REST-like, and built with low-code deployment in mind. Plus, we provide detailed documentation and sample code to help with the integration process. It’s simple, straightforward, and can be completed in as little as 3 minutes.
The API is highly accurate and can handle a wide variety of image types and backgrounds, including JPG, PNG, and WebP. It uses advanced image processing algorithms to ensure a precise and clean removal of backgrounds.

The default output image format is transparent PNG. Users can also customize export parameters, outputting into other formats that support transparency. In many cases, such as for web pages and mobile apps, we actually recommend exporting the image as WebP to keep file sizes small. Bottom line, the API makes it easy to use the image anywhere else you need, hassle-free.

Our system has processed 40 billion requests over the years, and continues to process 50 million a month. Those numbers are accelerating, and we’re prepared to handle that growth. Whatever your batch size, we’re ready. 
Of course. We believe the tool speaks for itself, and that once you try it, you’ll never want to go without it again. Don’t believe us? Sign-up for a developer account, and get 100 free API calls per month. Use your free calls to test drive any of Picsart’s publicly available APIs.
