PixelBin's image transformations enable you to:
- Transform the image size and format based on your platform of choice.
- Bring focus on a particular element of the image, and apply effects and visual enhancements to bring the best out of the visual.
- Automatically remove backgrounds and watermarks in one click.
- Generate fresh images by adding layers such as backgrounds, watermarks and logos to the image.
Playground allows you to experiment with PixelBin's image transformations and see live results. We provide you with a sample image, but you can also upload an image relevant to you and apply the transformations.
If you apply a set of image transformations frequently, you can save them as Presets.
