PhotoScissors 2.0 Removes Image Background Faster

Posted In Graphic, Software Reviews - By Techtiplib on Wednesday, March 25th, 2015 With No Comments »

TeoreX releases PhotoScissors 2.0. The cross-platform application quickly removes unwanted backgrounds from photos yet does not require any specific skills from a user. With a few clicks, a user can get rid of the background, smooth contours of the object, crop the image to a specified size and add a transparent shadow. The new version also features major performance improvements.

Users rarely expect perfect results from one-click applications. This is so true for background removal software. Yet PhotoScissors 2.0 manages to prove the opposite. Being a tiny application both for Windows and Mac platforms, PhotoScissors demonstrates surprisingly good results. In fact, having this app in the toolbox, a user can remove even complex backgrounds from photos in short time and with literally few mouse strokes.

PhotoScissors 2.0 provides a number of improvements to further enhance results and reduce time required to obtain them. In particular, the improved edge feathering algorithm plus the “Offset Boundary” option allow for much neater and more precise contours of the cut out object. The “Shadow” option quickly applies a transparent shadow to the picture – a great way to instantly make images of eBay goods look better; while automatic crop helps fitting the image to the specified boundaries. The new interactive processing mode optionally allows applying all changes to the image in real time.

PhotoScissors performance was already enjoyable, but in the second version, the processing speed has been further increased. The algorithm analyzing colors and contours of an image has also got several major improvements for faster and more precise processing. Finally, the app now uses less RAM and CPU and features a lot of GUI enhancements.

“PhotoScissors 2.0 is a real step forward”, says Max Gapchenko, a CEO at TeoreX. “Faster than ever, it has become much more precise, and is capable of removing backgrounds from more complex images now”.

Pricing and availability

The price for a single license of PhotoScissors is $19.99. PhotoScissors is available both for Windows and Mac OS users.
