A major upgrade to the algorithm makes much better use of the red/green marks, so even fewer strokes are needed to get a great result!
Sometimes the algorithm would leave little specks of background in tight corners. We have improved the handling of these cases so that they get cleaned out better.
The smoothing level adapts to the local character of the foreground, so sharp edges are followed more closely, and fuzzy edges become smoother.
The feathering radius adapts to the local character of the foreground, so sharp edges stay sharp and fuzzy edges stay fuzzy. Works great on shots with varying levels of focus blur along the foreground edges!
Mark some foreground green and some background red. The algorithm takes care of the details.
Live feedback lets you focus on the challenging parts of the image and the Scalpel handles any edge.
Adjust the colors, add drop shadows, and crop the image to create an eye-popping result!
Only Clipping Magic gives you the best of both worlds: red / green marks for quick separation using our proprietary best-in-class algorithm, and a Scalpel for critical precision cuts, enabling extremely fast operation with great results on any image.
Snappy User Interface, with quick feedback on your edits. Tired of waiting several seconds to see what the effect of your edits will be? So were we, so we made sure the app is always quick to update.
Smart Algorithm makes the most of your input, minimizing the amount of work you need to put in. For many images all it takes is a few strokes!
Pan and Zoom to any level necessary allows you to inspect details while quickly navigating your image.
Undo / Redo: never fear that a mistake will ruin your work.
Auto-Save: never lose your edits, never need to deal with backups.
Configurable Auto-Brush-Size: The brush size adapts dynamically to your zoom level so that you can easily zoom in to make detailed edits. Prefer to stay zoomed out? No problem, you can set the brush size as you like it.
Refine Edges gives you full control over smoothing, feathering and offset.
Dedicated Hair Tool separates out hair from clean and distinct backgrounds.
Color Levels - tune brightness, shadows and highlights, and the color temperature to make otherwise lackluster photos pop.
Rotate / Straighten - make sure your photos are correctly aligned. Rotate in steps of 90 degrees, or fine tune the rotation angle to get the result just right.
Crop & Resize - Clipping Magic gives you a truly professional grade crop feature. Not only can you crop to the result with a suitable percentage padding, you can lock in an aspect ratio or even a specific target pixel size. Consistent results, delivered.
Shadows can really enhance a photo, making the subject pop on the page. Clipping Magic gives you a complete shadow creator with both drop shadow and ellipse shadows.
Background Color - make the background transparent or any solid color you like.
Configurable Defaults - tweak the defaults to get the right results every time without having to change the settings on every image.
Bulk Clipping - quickly and conveniently clip any number of images.
Share Your Results - all your images get a secure URL you can share with colleagues or customers.
Learn the basics of background removal with Clipping Magic: how to apply the red / green marks, and how to deal with some common pitfalls.
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.
You can set the defaults for new images to match your preferences so you don't have to start every image configuring the basics.
Everything from the brush size and the background color to the crop details are fully under your control - just configure an image to have the settings you like, then make the ones you want to keep the defaults for future images.
Tip: Turn on Auto Color Levels, Fit To Result, and set a Target Size to produce vibrant, clean, and consistent catalogs.
Clipping Magic offers a powerful and intuitive way to draw precision vector cuts to cleanly cut out even noisy, blurry, and faint edges. Learn how to create, refine, extend, or delete scalpel cuts to get a great result on any image.
Learn how to separate out hair from clean and distinct backgrounds.
Clipping Magic has all the necessary tools and features to produce an immediately usable result, so you can go straight from Clipping Magic to publishing. Learn all about Color Levels, Rotate / Straighten, Crop, Shadows, and making the Background Transparent or a Solid Color.
The Bulk Clipping feature allows you to quickly and efficiently clip even very large image catalogs.
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.
