Hi there, Can anyone advise on the best way to remove the background to product imagery. At the moment I take product imagery on my phone, download to my computer and then use adobe to edit the photo however this is time consuming and expensive.


Does anyone use an app where you can take photo on your phone, remove the background and upload directly to my Shopify page?


Does anyone find that blank background imagery performs better in terms of clicks and sales?

Hi, @FreddieFitz!

Thanks for reaching out in our Community forums and sharing your concern. I’m happy to help out.


I understand that you are looking to remove the background of your product images. This is a great idea as it will allow your photos to be consistent and appealing to your customers. It’s suggested that you use a transparent version so that you don't have to worry about your product’s background clashing or competing with its surroundings. Feel free to check out this free background remover and upload your product images to get started. You can also check out the free Photoshop Mix application on mobile devices that offers similar functionality. Another important factor to consider is consistent product dimensions, this ensures that all of your photos are aligned and in an organized fashion.


I’d love to know more about your business! What type of products are you selling? How are your sales going? 


Kindly let me know if you have more questions and feel free to share any updates on this thread!
