What’s With The Purple?

Both James’s and Jacob’s respective childhood sports teams had the colors white and purple.

File Formats?

We currently support JPEG, PNG, BMP, GIF and WebP as input, and produce PNG as output. More output formats and options coming soon!


The max website image pixel size is 8 megapixels. The max API image pixel size is 25 megapixels. The max image file size is 30 megabytes.


The service is free while in beta.

When will the beta end?

We expect to come out of beta in Q2 or Q3 of 2023.

Why are your prices so much lower than the competition?

Their margin is our opportunity.

We see AI commoditizing rapidly, and rather than fighting that tide we’ve decided to embrace it.

This thinking has impacted every aspect of our business. The size of our team, the choice of AI model, the architecture of our IT operations. We’ve optimized them all towards maximizing quality and minimizing price.

So we don’t have a 50 person sales team to wine and dine you (and at those margins they really should be!) All we’re offering is a great service and outstanding value.

Do you have an API?

Sure do!

We see the API offering as the primary revenue driver for our and any background removal service going forward.

How will you notify API users when charging will start?

We will email the address you used to sign up for the API well in advance of starting to charge.

What types of images does Pixian.AI work well on?

We work well on a broad range of image types, including photos of people. We distinguish ourselves on objects, artworks, logos and scans. See the Quality section for more details

Do you support hair?

Yes! Our AI model has been trained on a wide range of images with both hair and fur, so it does a nice job of preserving them.

Does it work on AI generated images like from Stable Diffusion?

Absolutely! Generative AI generally produces clean, slightly cartoonish images, and those usually work really well.

Where does the AI model come from?

We have developed a custom AI model that we’ve trained on a large, proprietary dataset. The model has been specifically tuned for quality and efficiency.

Do you make any claims on the input images or results?

Our terms of service just grant us the rights we need to deliver the service to you, and to improve our products. We don’t claim any rights to the results, and we won’t share your images with third parties unless you explicitly authorize us to do so.

Please see our Terms of Service for more details.

What are your data retention policies?

Right now, we retain images and results for five days after they are uploaded, after which they are permanently deleted. Please note that our data retention policies may change over time, and this current policy does not bind us in the future, or require your affirmative consent to change.
