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.
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.
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.
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.
