Image optimization

NEW! Precise editing
of light & shadows

Pictures taken outside on a sunny day often have areas that are too bright or too dark.

Now you can correct these problems with precise adjustment of light and shadows. This helps to make the details in your photos more visible.

Adjust brightness &
contrast

The photo tool for optimizing contrast and brightness has been completely redesigned.

Now the details in your photos remain intact regardless of any changes to contrast or brightness.

Cut & level

Select a new image section or easily adjust the format.

A grid is displayed to help you make the perfect cut. You can also use guidelines
to ensure straight alignment.

IMPROVED! Color correction

Easily optimize hue, brightness and saturation of certain color ranges.

This can be used to add more saturation to the green shades of a country landscape or the red shades in faces.

Resharpen

Make your images razor sharp. There are
two tools you can use for this:

  • The slider in the photo optimization tools
  • The detailed "Unsharp Mask" filter

Intelligent scaling & zoom

Change the width and height of the image or enlarge specific parts. This prevents distortion of important image elements,
e.g. people.
It's a great way to create website headers and other graphics with unique dimensions.

Adjust specific areas

Select specific parts of the image using the Section Tool and edit them separately.

This can be used to draw the viewer's attention to specific elements by making them brighter and darkening the surrounding elements. It can also be used to correct parts of the image that are poorly exposed.

Remove distortions

"Converging lines" often occur when taking photos of buildings using a wide angle lens. These are in fact parallel lines that meet at
a single point in the distance. This can be corrected with a single click.

Retouch

Remove unwanted elements

Use the Photo Heal Tool to remove spots and wrinkles from people's faces.

Magic Erase helps to remove unwanted elements such as street signs or footprints.

Restore old photos

Remove scratches and dust using the Photo Heal Tool. Use the image optimization tools to add more contrast and sharpness to your photos.

Change body shapes

With the "Liquid Paint" you can make everyone look their best, e.g. by straightening the nose. Or you can enlarge or shrink other body parts any way you like.

Red eye correction

Red-eye effect occurs when the lens and the flash are very close to another, often in low light conditions.
Get rid of these with just one click.

Creative design
