The photo app for online selling
Create studio-quality product photos for free on your iPhone.
Shoot professional-level photos on your own device
Just snap, style and sell. That’s how remarkably easy the Square Photo Studio app is. Plus, it’s free, so you can start taking professional-looking photos instantly at no cost.
In-app photo tips help you fine-tune lighting, framing and more. A built-in camera stabiliser automatically keeps angles straight, images sharp and pictures consistent across your entire site. You can even use the app’s tools on photos already in your camera roll.
Advanced AI extracts the background and adds a transparent one. Use the photo-editing tool to select a background colour and add realistic shadows to make your items stand out. Edit exposure, contrast, saturation, highlights, item size, rotation and position in the frame. Or simply let the AI improve the image for you.
Use your pictures to create Square items right in the app and sync them with your Square catalogue. Or connect new photos to existing items. Even create payment links to start selling in just a few clicks.
Sync with Square
What really sets Square Photo Studio apart from other photography apps is its seamless sync with your Square item catalogue. You take a photo and instantly update one of your existing items or create a new one from the app itself. Or, create a payment link directly in the app and add it to your social media profile to start selling straight away.

- 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.
