How to add a color background to your photo
With Photo Studio it’s easy to remove and replace a photo background. The program provides a wide choice of fun backgrounds, and you can even import your own backgrounds to use as pictures.
But what if you want to add a simple color background to your picture? For example, a clean white background for product shots, or a pastel background on a portrait photo. This is also possible in Photo Studio, simply follow the steps below.
If you don’t already own Photo Studio you can download a free trial to test this:
Step 1 – Remove the existing background
Open your photo in Photo Studio and go to the Background tab.
Remove the original background automatically, by clicking “Replace automatically (AI)”. You can find more information about background removal in this tutorial.
Step 2 – Select a background color
Once your background is gone, click “continue” to open the new background options. Then click the “Color” tab.
There are multiple ways to choose a color:
1. Use the color selector
Simply click a color in the left-hand panel to preview it on your photo.

2. Enter a color code
If you know exactly what color you want to use, you can add the code directly. There are boxes for decimal RGB codes and also for Hex code.
