Background remover + Image Recoloring Tool

The Image Recoloring Tool allows you to:

  1. empower customers to remove the background from images*

  2. enable or force them to recolor multi-color images or convert them to a one-color image


It only works with solid color backgrounds, the 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:



See the tool in action:


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 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.

  • The recoloring tool works only if uploaded images don't have more than 10 different colors. 


Create and manage rules

In order to create and manage new rules you need to:

  1. Go to Zakeke's Tools
  2. Select Background remover + Image recoloring
  3. Click on 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.



When you create or update a rule it may take a few minutes to take effect in the customizer.
