NEW & UNIQUE! My Workspace
ENHANCED & UNIQUE! Object Extraction Wizard
The flexible My Workspace interface system gives you layouts with
just the right tools for the project at hand. Casual users can breeze
through everyday photo-editing tasks using Basic Photo Mode’s
condensed tool set. Advanced users can choose from Standard
Photo Mode, Graphics Mode or Web Mode layouts and customize to
fit their personal style. With My Workspace, you get the workspace
you want so you can get the job done.
Now - you can professionally extract objects in only minutes!
Transport your family to exotic places they’ve never been. Or
combine dreams with reality. Compose a scene of a mouse chasing a
cat. It’s so simple! Just paint around the edge of your subject, click
on the background, extract and refine. Four steps and you’re done.
Now there’s even an undo option. Once you try the Object Extraction
Wizard, you’ll be hooked.
NEW & UNIQUE! SmartCurves
NEW & UNIQUE! SmartRemove Scene Compositor
Powerful new SmartCurves is automatic image adjustment that
compensates for camera response curve anomalies. SmartCurves
uses PhotoImpact’s advanced HDR imaging technology to
calibrate custom camera curves. It’s pure rocket science. Good
thing it’s fully automated. You get high-quality tonal correction
tailored for your camera. You’ll be amazed by the results.
Sometimes it's hard to get a perfect shot without moving people or
cars obstructing your view. Revolutionary new SmartRemove lets you
selectively paint out moving elements from multiple shots of the
same scene, so you can compose an image with just the elements
you want. But you can also create extra ordinary shots. Show your
subject in series of poses or create a crowd where there was none.
SmartRemove turns the impossible into reality.
