You have complete control over how the edge of your image is handled.

You can set the level of smoothing that is applied, to avoid jagged edges on noisy images, while still preserving details on clean ones.

Feathering lets you specify how wide you want the transition zone to be between fully opaque and fully transparent / background color.

While Clipping Magic offers you industry leading fully-automatic halo reduction, a configurable offset enables you to handle any halo gracefully.

Officially supported file formats are: JPEG, PNG, and GIF images using the sRGB color space. CMYK causes some browsers to show you the wrong colors while you edit, though the result should still come out ok.

Current max image resolution is 4 Megapixels, regardless of aspect ratio. Images larger than this will be shrunk to that size. Note that this is pixels, not bytes, and there is currently no image byte size limitation.

Officially supported browsers are the latest versions of Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer running on modern desktops and laptops, though other modern browsers may also work. Most unfortunately the UI works poorly if at all on tablets and smart phones since it relies heavily on mouse hover indications.
