Add Shadows to Car Photos

Aug 07, 2019

When you need to replace the background of an image, it’s often enough to remove the old background, then add a new one instead – a task that can be done in just a few seconds using remove.bg. For some images the final result can look unnatural though.

With our new shadow feature you can now let Artificial Intelligence generate a realistic shadow for your foreground, allowing you to embed it into it’s new background seamlessly for a fantastically realistic overall composition.

Note: Adding shadows is currently supported for photos of cars only.

How to add shadows to images?

Shadows are supported in all remove.bg tools and integrations:

  • On remove.bg: Automatically enabled for all car photos.
  • In the Windows / Mac / Linux app: Automatically enabled for car photos with the newest version (1.0.3), can be turned off in the Advanced options dialog.
  • In the Photoshop Plugin: Automatically enabled for car photos with the newest version (1.0.3), can be turned off in the Settings dialog.
  • Via the API: Disabled by default, can be enabled for car photos via the add_shadow option.

What images are supported?

For now, only photos of cars can get a shadow added automatically.

For other types of foregrounds (e.g. products), you will have to manually add any shadows with an image-editing software or include them in the background image. However, we are currently exploring solutions to support automatic shadows for other foreground types too. Want to share your requirements or thoughts with us?

We would love to hear your feedback and answer your questions.
