Image optimization

Selective light & shadow editing

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

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

Use the photo tools to optimize contrast and brightness and give your images more brilliance or reduce contrast for a vintage look.

Innovative technology guarantees the details in your photos are never lost.

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.

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
  • Detailed "Unsharp Mask" filter
Intelligent scaling & zoom

Change the width and height of the image or enlarge specific parts. This prevents image elements, e.g. people, from becoming distorted.

It's is a great way to create website headers.

Adjust Specific Areas
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.

This can be corrected with a single click.

Retouch

Remove unwanted elements

Remove pimples and wrinkles in portraits using the Photo Heal tool.

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" feature 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.
