The Background removal operation is a separate fee-based service not included in our Standard subscription plan.
Your Sales Representative may consent to a free trial. To activate your trial, please submit a Support ticket.
Background removal automatically detects the foreground object and isolates it by removing the background of an image using advanced AI technology. It can help you create a solid or transparent background for your pictures. This can give your application or website an overall polished look. Moreover, product images with a clear-defined foreground can be indexed better in search engines which rely on AI classification.
Please keep in mind that the background removal operation is asynchronous, which means that the first request will return the original image (with a little cache value) while the image is being processed in the background. The status is checked on each consecutive request, and after the operation is complete, the origin image is replaced and the standard max-age settings are set.
Upon successful processing, the background of the resulting image will be transparent (if the format supports transparency). Alternatively, you can use bg_color=X to define a new background color.
Feel free to try the background removal algorithm with your own images on our Ask Filerobot demo page.
