Background Removal API

You can now integrate remove.bg's background removal into your website, app or workflow.

It’s a simple HTTP-based API with various options:

  • Upload an image directly or pass a URL
  • Pick one of two output resolutions: 4 megapixels / 0.25 megapixels
  • Get binary PNG results or base64 encoded JSON

With our API docs and code samples it’s only a matter of minutes to get started!


We want to thank all beta testers and everyone who gave us feedback during the beta phase! A special shout-out goes to Mark Townsend and Eddy Verbruggen who have published open source PHP and NPM packages to make integrating the remove.bg API even easier. If you work with PHP or Javascript you should check them out:
