General information

Selective Light & Shadow Editing
Pictures taken outside on a sunny day often have areas that are too bright or too dark. You can correct this with precise adjustments to lighter or shadowed areas. This helps to make the details in your photos more visible.

General information

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 a great way to create website headers.

General information

Customize 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.

General information

Remove Distortions
"Converging lines" often occur when taking photos of buildings using a wide angle lens. These are in fact parallel lines that meet at a single point in the distance. This can be corrected with a single click.

Adjust Brightness & Contrast
Use the photo tool to optimize contrast and brightness and give your images more brilliance, or reduce contrast to create 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. For instance, you can add more saturation to the green shades in a country landscape or adjust red shades in people's faces.

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


General information

Remove Unwanted Elements

Use the Photo Heal tool to remove spots and wrinkles from people's faces. Magic Erase lets you 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 often occurs when the lens and the flash are very close to another in low light conditions. Get rid of this issue with just one click.


General information


Select individual image elements and reposition them freely. By combining various elements, you can turn your ideas into digital works of art.

Tip! Adjust the colors, brightness and contract of specific image areas. Add some feathering to blend it all together perfectly.
