How to Use Image Retouching?

Picture retouching is a post-processing technique used to enhance and improve photographs by making subtle adjustments and corrections. But it’s also an art form, and there's no one-size-fits-all approach! Experiment with different techniques and settings to find the style that best suits your vision for the photo.

Additionally, always strive for a natural and balanced result, avoiding excessive retouching that may lead to unrealistic or overly edited-looking images.

Master Advanced Techniques

Clone tool

The Clone tool allows you to retouch photos by replacing unwanted or damaged pixels with other pixels of your choice. It basically copies and pastes one part of a photo into another.

Erase tool

The Erase tool also removes unwanted elements from your images. However, the Erase tool does it by considering the texture, illumination, and shadows surrounding the pixels you’re erasing and blending those pixels to match their surroundings.

Face AI and Skin AI 

Easily retouch portraits with sliders. The content-aware AI will detect face features and retouch them with a slide. You can then apply further adjustments, fine-tuning your result.
