Red-eye correction

You've finally managed to get all family members to look at the camera and say "cheese", but the photo is ruined because everyone has red eyes on the photo. What to do? Don't worry: a simple click is all it takes to remove the so-called red-eye effect.

Restore photos

Don't let keepsakes and valuable photo memories gather dust in boxes - get old pictures into shape and let them shine with a new light.

Small tears, wrinkles or faded colors are fixed in no time. Perfect, for example, for surprising your grandparents!

NEW! Selective lightening

Are some of the details of the photo too dark or is a hard shadow spoiling the picture?

Similar to classic dodging, you can use the "lightening" function to expose selected areas of your photo and to enhance them in different ways. You can customize the tool to your needs: from large with a soft structure to pixel precision. This enables you to make even detailed corrections.

NEW! Remove objects

Now nothing can ruin your photos! It's a cinch to remove bothersome objects from photos by replacing them with a similar background from the same image. Whether poles, power lines or signs, with just a few clicks you can edit your image and remove any flaws.

NEW! Panorama montages

Combine individual images seamlessly and in just a few steps to create fantastic panorama pictures. The photos are automatically combined into one picture. You can also correct details manually. The result: absolutely realistic panoramas!

Creative effects

Funny photo caricatures

Whether caricatures, "body styling", or artistic distortions: use the "liquid paint" function to magically create funny caricatures with a few clicks. Give cranky colleagues big ears, have a friend sport a beer belly, or your boss look out from a frame with droopy eyes. Pictures can be easily distorted using the mouse.

Artistic filters

With over 60 creative effect filters, you can turn your everyday photos into impressive works of art (e.g. pastel shades, newspaper print, relief design, chalk, soft focus lens, distortion, shadow, histogram and much more).

With just a few clicks, you can turn a picture of your dog into a pencil drawing, the flower meadow behind your house into an oil painting, or you can make a mosaic out of the parrot that you photographed.

MAGIX Photo Designer 7 also supports Adobe Photoshop®-compatible plug-in effects

NEW! Even easier to use

Thanks to clever tools and an optimized display, the program is now even easier to use.

The new display mode enables you to conveniently switch between filmstrip view and the new effects preview.
