Which API should I use?

The Photoroom API consists of two API endpoints, which are available in two different plans.

If you only need to remove the background from an image and don't need to perform any additional edits, then you'll want to call our Remove Background API:

pageRemove Background API (Basic plan)

If you want to apply edits to your image, such as resizing, replacing the background, re-lighting the subject or adding a realistic shadow, then you'll want to call our Image Editing API:

pageImage Editing API (Plus plan)

Please keep in mind that 1 call to the Image Editing API is worth 5 calls to the Remove Background API.

More details about how API calls are billed are available here.
