Improved cutting algorithm

There can be many reasons why you want to change the background of a photo: The colours may not be suitable, or the background may be busy, distracting or simply boring. But there is a solution: CutOut 9 professional! The improved algorithm in this version will impress you with better quality and more details in the resulting images. You can also benefit from its advantages during image magnification, printing or batch processing. That means truncated or unattractive edges are a thing of the past. The cutting algorithm in CutOut analyses your motif in an intelligent manner and ensures you get the optimal cutout.

The new tools and functions in CutOut 9 professional will decrease the amount of time you need to cut images even further.

Use the Magnet tool to quickly select a simple object without having to switch to clipping mode.

Truncated edges are a well-known problem that occurs with difficult motifs. But now you can simply tell CutOut 9 professional which edges are simple and which are complex. The curve adjustment for complex edges then guarantees correct and easy cutting. You now also have the option of manually configuring edge optimisation settings: Decide for yourself how many pixels the desired area should contain.

Improve brightness

If the limits of your object are difficult to recognise because the image is very dark, CutOut has a great function up its sleeve. Increasing the brightness makes it considerably easier to manually cut out an object. However, if you use this option, the actual image is not changed, meaning you do not need to adjust the brightness any further after you cut.
