About

This Utility API allows you to remove backgrounds from images of any format.
Removing image backgrounds is commonly used in e-commerce for product images, portrait photography, and graphic design to create professional, isolated subjects. It's also essential in filmmaking for visual effects and web design for transparent images. Additionally, it aids in medical imaging and automated data extraction from images in various fields.

Authentication

All requests to ApyHub services need to be authenticated, currently we support tokens or basic authentication mechanisms. You can generate and view your existing credentials from workspace settings (on the left side of the navbar) and go to applications.
Points to note:
  • Credential secrets are generated on the fly and are not stored in plain text, so on generating a credential please save the secrets somewhere safe.
  • Use the apy-token as the header parameter to pass the token.
  • Use the Authorization header to send the basic authentication credentials.
