6 reasons why you should remove image backgrounds

Beyond the pure sorcery of it, there are a few reasons why the remove image backgrounds feature is a game-changer for everyday entrepreneurs.

  1. Helps your product standout
  2. Keeps your aesthetic consistent
  3. Allows you to get creative with your brand identity
  4. Promotes a convenient and user-friendly experience
  5. Highlight the people on your team
  6. Create on-trend collages

Let’s review them below.

1.     Helps your product stand out

At the top of the list, is the power to make your products stand out. If you’re selling things online, you can easily remove image backgrounds that are cluttered from product shots in just a matter of minutes.

Typically, removing image backgrounds is a painfully time-consuming process that requires intense concentration — but GoDaddy Studio helps cut down on time.

It’s ultimately worth the extra step because it makes your merchandise unmissable.  Remember, the objects you’re presenting to the world in your virtual showroom will help summon the undivided attention of your target audience.

2.     Keeps your aesthetic consistent

If you’re a minimalist or like to keep things classical, then maintaining a crisp white background is just about as easy as it gets. You could prepare your entire online catalogue this way in a matter of minutes.

Going a step further, an extra tap or two on the colour palette lets you colorize your background in any imaginable hue, for a professional studio look and feel.

3.     Allows you to get creative with your brand identity

Of course, keeping things minimal is only one way to go. With your product cut out, you have thousands of ways to contextualize it by adding things like:

  • Textures
  • Gradients
  • Patterns
  • Shapes
  • Illustrations

Infuse your product images with some personality and visual delight. Using graphics and colours in line with your brand identity helps keep your offering distinctive. This will also help forge a connection in your audience’s minds between your products and your persona.
