AKVIS SmartMask is an efficient selection tool that saves time and is fun to use. Selection has never been so simple!
Extracting Complex Objects a Breeze!
The software provides powerful tools for masking objects on images and removing backgrounds. It can create various selection types, with both soft and sharp edges. It even lets you select fluff, hair, fur, tree branches, glass, or a transparent veil with just a few mouse clicks! The program also lets you get rid of the unwanted color shades left on the cutout object by the environment.
Outstanding Tools You’ll Love
There are two modes of image processing: Auto mode, which offers a powerful algorithm for automatic recognition of areas, and Manual mode, that includes a set of smart and helpful brushes to touch up the results where needed.
The interface is so intuitive that you will feel like a child drawing in class: there are two pencils in Auto mode – you draw a line with the blue pencil inside the object you want to select (for example, yourself on a group photo), and then use the red pencil to create lines outside the object which define the areas that should be cut out (the other people in the photo). The program then interprets your intentions and intelligently makes the selection you want, understanding where the borders are.
With simple images, these pencils are often enough to produce professional-looking results. One more useful tool is Quick Selection in Manual mode, a powerful feature that allows you select regions automatically with just a few clicks.
In cases where the selected object stands against a background of a similar color range, or the object’s edges are uneven, you can use the touch-up brushes, like the Magic Brush and Background Eraser.
Like all AKVIS products, SmartMask is not only a straightforward tool, but also fun to use. It makes the dull process of image manipulation a fun and entertaining.
Less Time on Selections, More on Creating!
Making selections can take a great deal of time out of a designer’s work day. For this reason, with AKVIS SmartMask you can considerably increase your productivity! You will be freed from boring work and will have more room for creativity and realization of your ideas.
Saving your Work
When using the software, you can save a working draft of your project into an .akvis file which contains the original image, the state of the image at the moment it was saved with all its parameters and settings, and, in the Deluxe/Business versions, any manually created checkpoints which where added during your work. This very helpful feature is highly appreciated by professionals.
