Edit the Image
Our software offers you many ways to make your photos better. Choose the section below that you’re interested in and learn the easiest way to edit pictures.
Open the Adjust tab to use different color parameters. You can adjust brightness, contrast, gamma, and temperature manually using the corresponding sliders. If you want to try improving your picture automatically, select the Magic Enhance tool. To delete changes and revert to an earlier version, click Reset.
Click Retouching to find the tools you need to make faces in your photos perfect. If you want to get rid of spots or wrinkles, click the Blemish removal button. To smooth out the complexion and make the skin matt, use Shine removal. You can also correct red-eye, whiten teeth, or even put on makeup!
Click Effects to find lots of filters to add atmosphere to your picture. Give your photo a vintage look with the Sepia filter, or imitate the style of great artists with the Oil painting filter, while the B&W filter will create stylish and classy monochrome images.
Open the Text tab. Here you can add captions, rotate them, change the opacity of the characters, and other parameters.
If you want to correct a skewed horizon, rotate, or flip the image, click More, then choose the Rotate button. To change the size of the picture and make it fit the customizable size parameters, click Resize. To crop the picture for different formats, click Crop.
To remove unwanted objects from photos, click Object Removal. Choose from the selection of tools to mark the image parts for removal: choose Brush to mark whatever part you want, Magic Wand to mark parts that are the same color, or Lasso to mark the outline of a figure with random edges. To remove unwanted markings, use the Eraser tool, then click Start Erasing. To get rid of any imperfections, use the Stamp tool - just copy one part of the picture and paste it on another part you need to cover.
If you’re not satisfied with the background in your photo, click Change Background. Mark the non-background area with the green brush, then select red brush and mark the background with strokes. When the area to be retained is outlined with a broken white line, click the Next Step button.
If necessary, refine the object edges using the Mask Brushes or Hair Selection tools, then click Next Step again.
Replace the background with just a solid color or with a different picture. To choose a picture, open the Add Image window, where you can choose from the default background pictures or upload your own using the Upload option.
Save the Result
Now you need to save your edited picture. Click the Save button in the lower right corner, choose the folder, and the desired image format.
