Pick a Theme to Freshen
Your Photos

Give your pics major personality by adding a thematic background like flowers, hearts, and Summer or Winter scenes. We have tons and tons of designs for you to choose from: Taylor Swift Lover backgrounds, special selfie backgrounds, Autumn styles, fruit prins, rainbows, sky doodles, so many cute watermelons, dreamy clouds, the list goes on and on. All our carefully curated backgrounds are just waiting to be discovered (by you!) used on your favorite images to give them instant life. You can even give your pics a new background by adding the same image you’re working with for a trippy layering effect. It’s only a matter of time until your friends will be asking, “How did you do that?!” That’s when you can show them how to change the background of a picture with just a few clicks through PicsArt. Disclaimer: Once you go background, you’ll never go basic.

How to change the background of your image:

Open the image you want to work with.

Click on “Fit” from the tools bar at the bottom.

Tap “Color,” “Background,” or “Image” and choose your desired style.

Click “Apply” and “Next” then save to your device.

Erase It With Our Background Remover

Sometimes more is more, but other times, less is more. We’ve all taken a stunning photo with a less-than-cute background (read: messy room). For those times, wouldn’t it be awesome to be able to remove the background from an image entirely? It sounds complicated and time consuming, but with PicsArt’s free background remover, it’s so simple to do. You can give all your bad pics a plain background by erasing the background entirely. Then it’s up to you if you want to leave it white or if you want to change the background color. Once you have it down, you’ll want to erase all the flaws in your photos. You can even take your skills a step further by making any background a transparent background and turning the image into a sticker! Can’t you just imagine a sticker of your self(ie)? Send it to all your friends and fans!

How to remove a background

Open the image you want to work with.

Click on “Fit” from the tools bar at the bottom.

Tap the Eraser tool at the top.

Use your finger to erase as much of the background as you wish.

Click the checkmark at the top right, then tap “Apply” to save the changes.

Set Your Photo Size
With Our Fit Tool

With our handy Fit tool, you can take any image and use our photo cropping feature to change its size. Need a square pic? No problem. Want a portrait style? We got you. We even have options for your Story, Facebook cover, Pinterest post, Twitter header, and even one for you YouTubers. No cutting the image required; our Fit tool will do all the work for you! Then, once you’ve got the size down, you can jazz up your pic in just seconds by changing the background color to give it a pop or by adding a new photo background for some print action.

How to resize a photo with our Fit Tool:

Open the image you want to work with.

Click on “Fit” from the tools bar at the bottom.
