News in Perfect Mask 5.1:
New Keep and Erase Tools:
- With the Keep and Erase Tools you loosely brush areas you want to remove, like a distracting background, and Perfect Mask automatically expands your brush stroke to similarly colored and textured areas. This is a huge time saver! And, on consistent backgrounds this can be done in as little as a single brush stroke.
- Mask through subjects that were time consuming to mask before with a simple swipe of the Refine Tool.
- In tough areas like hair, tree branches and wedding veils you can simply brush with the Refine Tool to automatically remove the background and any color fringes.
- The new library of high quality backgrounds provides you with an easy way to replace an unsightly background in an otherwise great image. Imagine putting your subject at the bottom of a waterfall or in an old warehouse. Choose from skies, sunsets, walls and muslin backgrounds, just to name a few. Get creative!
Automatic Solid Background Removal:
- If Perfect Mask detects a solid color background, it can remove it automatically. This means that if you shoot on a solid color, all the masking work is done for you! This is perfect for green-screen shooting.
- Now you can view your mask and the image side by side so that you can see the results in real time. This is a big time saver because you no longer have to toggle masks on and off to check your work as you go.
- Select the preview configuration that works for you. There are six different ways to look at your mask to make adjustments and judge quality.
Maintains Classic Workflows:
- Mask Pro customers can continue to use the tools they are comfortable with but will reap the benefits of incredible new features that make masking easier than ever. Perfect Mask includes all of the tried and tested tools from Mask Pro like the keep and drop droppers and the MagicBrush.
Works Where You Do:
- Perfect Mask works directly with Lightroom and Aperture and even as a standalone application. It also works as a plug-in to Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Photoshop Elements.
