Learn about PhotoRoom templates and how you can use them to save time when creating your designs.

PhotoRoom templates are pre-made designs that set:

  • The canvas size of your image

  • Images, graphics and text that can be added to your design automatically.

You can think of them as a starting point for your own designs.

When you import an image into PhotoRoom, the app removes the background of your image. You can then choose to apply a template or use an Instant Background.

Note: Instant Backgrounds are AI-generated backgrounds and are only available on the Pro plan (see How to use Instant Backgrounds).

For templates, you can choose:

  • A template from the PhotoRoom collection.

    We have lots of templates to choose from, including templates for marketplace sites like Ebay, social media, special events, and colors.

  • A custom template that you made previously.

When you choose a template, PhotoRoom adds the various parts of the template to your design. Your design will then have a minimum of two layers:

  • Background layer

  • Object layer (for the subject of your design).

Some templates have additional layers for other parts of the template, such as graphics and text.

A design being edited in PhotoRoom on iPhone. The design is shown at the top. Below it, the Layers section is shown. It has a list of each Layer in the design.

Each layer has its own settings that you can use to change the appearance of that layer. If you make changes to the layers, the changes only affect your design. They do not affect the template from which they originate.

To learn how to select a template when you import an image, see Create your first PhotoRoom design.
