FaceAI

Using face recognition technology, the FaceAI tool selectively targets a subject’s face, eyes, and mouth and makes them vivid, bright, and smooth in less than 5 minutes — instead of 40 minutes with classic retouching textures and brushes.

SkinAI

The SkinAI tool analyzes your image and can automatically enhance and retouch a person’s skin to make it smoother and remove glare, pimples, and pores. You get complete control over how the content-aware adjustments are applied.

BodyAI

BodyAI shapes a subject's torso and abdomen. AI contours the human body and its individual proportions, so there's no need to select the shape manually. This tool easily compensates for lens issues or unflattering angles.

Glow

The Glow tool adds luminescence and focus to your photos, producing a unique look that's both sharp and blurry at the same time. It's perfect for objects with smooth surfaces and portraits, and you can even choose the type of Soft Focus.

EnhanceAI is a perfect tool for getting started. It analyzes your photos and instantly improves the color quality, details, and tone by selecting the right color balance. AccentAI is a magical slider for controls such as Shadows, Highlights, Contrast, Tone, Saturation, Exposure, and Details.

SkyAI

If the sky in your photo isn’t compelling due to bad weather and poor exposure, you can easily replace it with the SkyAI tool. It scans an image to identify sky and water, then seamlessly changes the sky with the selected replacement sky, adds realistic reflections in the water, and intelligently relights the scene.

Film Grain

Black & White

The Black & White tool converts a color photo to black and white so you can accentuate highlights and shadows. It also contains a number of controls to manipulate the monochrome look. Select Luminance to control the brightness of the Red, Yellow, Green, Cyan, Blue, and Magenta channels and adjust their saturation.

Dodge & Burn

Dodge & Burn tools allow fine control when lightening or darkening an image. The Dodge & Burn tool simulates traditional techniques used by photographers in a darkroom to regulate the amount of light on a particular area, which is useful for portrait retouching and object volumizing.

Vignette

Take complete control over the shape and position of the vignette to accentuate meaningful details. Refine the image with inner brightness for improved contrast and get professional, realistic results.

With Optics, you can get rid of wide-angle distortion and remove chromatic aberrations to achieve truer perspective, clear object contours, and more attractive portraits.
