How do I get started with Picsart APIs?


Getting started with Picsart APIs

  1. Sign up for a developer account. This comes with 100 FREE calls/month to try out our APIs. If you think you’ll need more than 100 calls/month to test, let us know.
  2. Once you sign-up for an account, create an App. This will provision an API key to make API calls.

After creating the app, verify that your API key is working correctly by running the curl command below. 

curl -X POST \
'' \
-H 'x-picsart-api-key: APIKEYHERE' \
-F 'output_type=cutout' \
-F 'image_url='


Testing APIs. 

      1. Browse our publicly available APIs
      2. We publish our APIs as a YAML file that you can import into Postman or other API testing tools. This will also import all the relevant documentation, providing a single place to view and test APIs. (Recommended)
      3. You can also test the APIs on our website at by providing your API key under the “Authorize” button and scrolling to the API that you want to test.
