This latest version of PhotoPlus is certified to be compatible with Windows 8, has a range of new features. The smart edge refinement tool selects and adjusts intricate parts of photos, such as hair and leaves, when used with the program’s improved selection brush.
Take advantage of PhotoPlus X6’s new 64-bit engine. It uses all the available memory of computers with a 64-bit operating system allowing you to edit and enhance large images without the risk of slowing down the system. Multi-threading technology also utilizes all the cores on a computer’s processor, to help make PhotoPlus X6 the fastest version yet.
The program’s Raw Studio was given a complete overhaul and you now have features like curves, lighting, color and lens corrections, and noise reduction. Speed improvements to the core engine of PhotoPlus result in RAW images loading faster. You can also create masks to control adjustments in specific areas, fix red-eye, repair and crop images—all in the reengineered Raw Studio.
Other new features include: nondestructive crop, which saves image data so photos can be restored and recropped again without losing other edits; control of blur and saturation to create miniature tilt-shift effects in the new depth-of-field filter; vector masks and fill layers tools; and improvements to noise reduction, zoom range and guides.
If you are already using PhotoPlus, you know the benefits of PhotoFix Studio, which includes tools for straightening and cropping images, removing red-eye and blemishes, and applying creative filters to enhance images. In addition, you can create HDR images, remove unwanted objects from photographs, make precise image cutouts and manage their entire image collection in the PhotoPlus Organizer. You can also immediately share photos on Facebook and Flickr, plus view photos where they were taken on a Google map of the world. $89.99. serif.com
