How can I only change the background color to black and white?

Step 1

Start with an image

You can either use Photoroom on your desktop or on your smartphone with the mobile app.

Either way, upload an image and then use the template 'Color Splash' to generate a black and white background – without changing the font colors.

Step 2

Adjust and transform the image

Explore additional editing options to customize your image. In the application, you can resize the image and add text using all the available editing features.

Photoroom's primary focus is on background removal, which will be at the center of most templates you encounter.

Step 3

Subscribe to be a Pro User

The advantage of being a Pro-User is having access to the tools Instant Backgrounds (AI Background Generator) and Instant Shadows (AI Shadow Generator).

Additionally, it allows you to remove the Photoroom watermark from your images and grants access to all the fun templates available.

Design black and white backgrounds

Incorporating monochromic backgrounds into your visuals can elevate their overall impact, leaving a lasting and memorable impression on your audience. Black and white backgrounds can help maintain a consistent and cohesive visual identity across your projects or brand, enhancing recognition and brand recall.

Eliminate (color) noise

By eliminating distracting colors, monochromatic backgrounds direct the viewer's attention to the main subject, making it stand out prominently. Black and white backgrounds give the photo an artistic aesthetic and make the subject in the foreground pop out. Add text to the image or resize it for Instagram to personalize it for your needs.

    Suitable photos for my website

    I love being able to remove backgrounds from my pictures. I sell online, and when I take pictures, it's not always in a clean, uncluttered environment. I like how Photoroom gets rid of all of that and allows me to change the background to something more pleasing to the eye and suitable to place on my website.
