  • How do I use the background remover?

    The background remover uses artificial intelligence to detect the primary object in the picture and automatically removes the background. The AI tool does all the background removal editing work for you so you don’t need to take any additional steps.

  • What background and shade options are available?

    When it comes to editing the background image of your photos, Square Photo Studio offers a number of options. Once the app removes the original background, you can use the photo with its transparent background or add a crisp, white background for eCommerce use. In addition, you can select from a variety of pre-set colour backgrounds for social media selling, choose a styled two-tone background or enter a specific hex code into the custom colour picker and get a background that perfectly matches your brand. The app makes it easy to create a whole new image in seconds without having to retouch or resize.

  • Do I need a Square Online account to start using the app?

    A Square online account is not required. The app is free and doesn’t require any in-app purchases. If you want to save photos, sync photos to Square items or create a Square Online Checkout link, you will be prompted to create a Square account.

  • What file format are the photos saved as?

    File formats vary depending on the type of image format being saved. Images with backgrounds are saved as JPG files. Images with their backgrounds removed are saved as transparent PNG files.
