Photoroom comes with a range of templates that you can use on your designs. These include:

  • Commonly used backgrounds, such as black, white, transparent, and the original background from your photo.

  • Backgrounds and objects designed for a particular theme, such as birthdays, nature, and sales.

  • Templates designed to be sized correctly for social media and selling sites.

You can also create your own templates and apply those.
