Square Photo Studio

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 stabilizer 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 color 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 catalog. 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 catalog. 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 right away.

Bring your products and menu items to life.

Built with online selling in mind, the app is designed to make your products, even food and beverage items, come alive. With an artificial intelligence-powered background eraser, one-touch image extractor, and easy-to-use styling tools your items will never look more appealing to customers.

“Taking good product photos is difficult and time-consuming. The Square Photo Studio app saves me hours… Now, I can shoot, adjust lighting, and edit in minutes. Right from my phone.”

– Aaron Lefkove, owner of Bluebird Wine and Spirits

  • 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 preset color backgrounds for social media selling, choose a styled two-tone background, or enter a specific hex code into the custom color 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. You can learn more about our eCommerce tools here.
