PNG files enable high quality rendering and transparency, like in the example below.
These formats can be chosen from the GenerateBanners form view or from your Zapier automation.

So far 400+ users have signed up to create 18,000+ images. We introduced a paid plan 1.5 months ago and have reached 38€ MRR as of December 13th 2022.
