Background Remover Flask App using Python – 2023


Hey guys, in today’s blog we will see how we can build a background remover flask app using Python. So without any further due, let’s do it…

In today’s digital age, images play a vital role in communication and expression. However, sometimes, the background of an image may not be suitable, and removing it can enhance the image’s overall appeal. To cater to this need, we can build a background remover Flask app that can remove the background of any image using Python.

Flask is a micro-framework that allows us to build web applications using Python. It is lightweight and provides an easy-to-use interface for building web applications. In this article, we will create a Flask app that uses the Python Imaging Library (PIL) and rembg python library to remove the background of an image.


To build the background remover Flask app, we need to have the following prerequisites installed:

  • Python 3
  • Flask
  • PIL (Python Imaging Library)
  • rembg (Python library that removes background)

Working of our Background Remover Flask App

Working Flow of our App…

  • In the first step, the extension of the image is checked, and if it is in the allowed extensions list, it is uploaded to the uploads folder.
  • Then in the next step, the uploaded image is read using the PIL module.
  • In the next step, the background of the image is removed using the rembg python library.
  • Then the image with the removed background is stored in the uploads folder.
  • And finally, both the images are displayed on the results page.

In this article, we have seen how to create a background remover Flask app using Python. We used the Flask micro-framework, Python Imaging Library (PIL), and rembg to process the images. By following these steps, you can build your own Flask app for removing the background of any image.

So this is all for this blog folks. Thanks for reading it and I hope you are taking something with you after reading this and till the next time …
