With the Image Recoloring Tool you can:
empower your customers to remove the background from images*
enable or force them to recolor multi-color images or convert them to a one-color image
*IMPORTANT: it only works with solid color backgrounds, that tool is not meant to work to clip images, it allows to remove a solid background and replace it with a transparency (mainly used for logos, cliparts, ... not for photos). See below an example:

Before you start
The tool is an Add-on. Depending on your subscription plan, you might need to activate it from the Addon section in your Zakeke back-office.
The tool works with SVG, PNG, JPEG, EPS, and PDF files.
You don't need this tool if you just want your customers to be able to change the colors of an SVG image because that is a default Zakeke feature. Learn more.
Create and manage rules
Go to your Zakeke back-office > Image Recoloring Tool > Add Rule
Each rule defines how your customers can edit the image:
Force customers to convert images to one-color image: just choose between providing them a set of colors (if only one, the uploaded image will be automatically recolored in that color) or provide them with a color-picker.
Allow users to edit colors on multi-color images without forcing them to choose a one-color: check the option "enable multi recoloring images".
You then decide on which printing methods or products the tool should be activated.
IMPORTANT: when you create or update a rule it may take a few minutes to take effect in the customizer.
