Use selfies with transparent backgrounds on social media

Influencers have a small army of people removing the backgrounds from their selfies, dropping them on to attention-grabbing on-brand backgrounds, and sharing them to social.

With Snappa you can upload your best selfie, click a button to remove the background, then change the background, and add text and graphics.

Influencer aesthetic without the influencer payroll.

Background remover FAQ


How do I remove the background from an image or photo?

Well, if you’re using Photoshop, you’ll search for a tutorial, choose your selector tool, and then attempt to perfectly trace the outline of the thing you want to keep.

With Snappa, you will click the “Remove Background” button, wait a second, and then pick your jaw up off the floor after seeing your background vanish like magic.

How much does it cost to remove background images?

The Pro ($10/month) or Team ($20/month) plans include UNLIMITED background removal, editing, and downloads, and gives you access to every single feature that Snappa offers. If you have ever paid anyone or wasted time doing this yourself, you’ll make your money back on this one feature alone.

Do you have stock photos, graphics, and templates that I can use?

Do we ever! You get access to 4,000,000+ high-res free use photos and graphics and 6,000+ professionally designed customizable templates. Of course, you can remove the backgrounds from our images and edit them to make them your own.

Can I share images I remove the background from on social media?

Yes, you can share your image to social media directly or through Buffer without ever leaving Snappa.
