With the Instant Backgrounds feature, you can use prompts to add a mannequin to your clothing images. This is very useful if you have photos of people wearing clothing and you want to replace the people with mannequins.

Two iphones side-by-side. On the left one is PhotoRoom with an image of a man wearing a suit. On the other is the same suit image, but the background has been replaced and the man is replaced with a mannequin.

To add a mannequin with a prompt, you need to:

  1. Use the Cutout feature to remove the parts of the image you don't want to keep, such as the model's head, face, hands, and feet.

    For more information on using the Cutout feature, see Cutout options.

  2. Use the Instant Backgrounds feature and describe the mannequin in your prompt as well as the background. For example, "a mannequin wearing a suit on a white background".

    To learn about using Instant Backgrounds and prompts in the different versions of PhotoRoom, see Create your own Instant Backgrounds with custom prompts.

The video shows an example on the Android version of PhotoRoom.

In this example, we followed these steps:

  1. On the Create page, select Start from Photo.

  2. Select the clothing photo that you want to edit.

  3. Select the Cutout option.

  4. Use the Cutout feature to Erase the parts of the photo you want to remove and replace with a mannequin, such as the model's face and hands.

  5. Select Done.

  6. Select Instant Backgrounds.

  7. Select the Pencil icon in the top-right corner.

  8. Select Manual.

  9. Enter your prompt. In the prompt, describe the mannequin wearing the clothing as well as the background. For example, "A wooden mannequin wearing a suit on a neutral background".

  10. Select Done.

  11. Select the image you want to use or select Generate 4 more to create more.

  12. Use the options to edit the image further if needed, for example, you can add text to the image.

  13. Select Export and choose to save or share your image.

On iPhone, iPad, and the Web App (desktop), these steps will vary but the same principles apply. You will still need to use the Cutout to remove parts of the picture and then use the Instant Backgrounds prompt to describe the mannequin and background.
