Learn how to set Photoroom to export your designs in different formats.

Photoroom can export images in different file formats, including .jpeg, .png, and .webp (Android only). The .png format is best for designs with transparency, whereas .jpeg and .webp are better for keeping the file size small (but may be lower quality).

By default, Photoroom uses .png if an image has transparency. For images without transparency, it uses .jpeg. But you can choose which format is used in your Preferences.

On iPhone, iPad, and Android devices, you can also change the file format when you export a design.

Note: The Preferences are for each user and are not shared through your team(s) or across platforms. You need to set them individually per team member and once per platform (web, iOS, Android).


On iPhone and iPad

If you are using Photoroom on an iPhone or iPad, you can set the file format in your Preferences. Your choice of file format is then used as the default for all designs.

You can also edit a design and choose a file format that only applies to that specific design.
