If you are on the Pro or Business plan, you can use AI to create an image from scratch. There's no need to use your own photo, just describe the image you want and the AI will create the image for you!

On iPhone and iPad

To create an AI image on the iPhone or iPad version of Photoroom:

(Video shows Photoroom on iPhone)

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

    Alternatively, select AI Images (below the search bar). If you select AI images, ignore step 2 and continue from step 3.

  2. Select Generate an image with AI.

  3. Select Square and choose the proportions (aspect ratio) for the new image.

  4. Select Classic and choose the style of image you want the AI to create. There are many styles to choose from, including Photographic, Line art, and 3D.

  5. In the text field, enter a description of the image you want the AI to create, for example, "Blue and yellow ski boot in snow". The description is called a prompt.

  6. Select the purple and white arrow button to create the image. Photoroom AI generates 2 images based on your prompt.

    If you want to use one of the two images, continue from step 9.

    If you want the AI to generate more images, continue from step 7.

  7. Either:

    1. Select the three dotted icon for one of the two AI-generated images

    2. Long press on one of the two AI-generated images.

  8. Select:

    • Generate more to get the AI to generate 2 additional images using the same prompt (as the selected image).

    • Change size to get the AI to generate 2 additional images in a different size. Choose the size you want from the list.

    • Change style to get the AI to generate 2 additional images in a different style. Choose the style you want from the list.

    • Change prompt to enter a different description. The AI will then generate two new images using your updated prompt.

    • Delete to remove the selected image.

  9. When you see an image you want to use, select it to display a larger view. If you are happy with the image, select Use image.

    Photoroom automatically removes the background, just like it would if you imported a photo.

  10. Choose a template for the image.

    Tip: To keep the background that the AI generated, select the Original image template.

  11. You can now edit the image in the same way as any other image. For example, you can Insert other images as new Layers or add text to the image.

    For information about the editing features, see the Basic editing articles.

  12. When you have finished editing your design, select Export. Use the export options to save your design and share it with others.
