Keep and Drop Tools
Loosely brush areas you want to remove, like a distracting or boring background, with the Keep and Drop tools. Perfect Mask 5.2 automatically expands your brush stroke to similarly colored and textured areas to fill in or remove large areas of your image. This is a huge time saver. And, on consistent backgrounds this can be done in as little as a single brush stroke
Mask through subjects that were extremely time consuming to mask before with a simple swipe of the Refine Tool. In tough areas like hair, tree branches and wedding veils, you can simply brush with the Refine Tool to automatically remove the background and any color fringes
Automatic Solid Background Removal
Remove solid color backgrounds with the click of a button. This means that if you shoot on a solid color, all the masking work is done for you. Perfect for green-screen shooting
Replace an unsightly or uninteresting background in an otherwise great image with one of the backgrounds included with Perfect Mask 5.2. Choose from skies, sunsets, walls and muslin backgrounds, just to name a few
Create an accurate mask when you can see in real-time what you are selecting. Side-by-side previews and six different ways to look at your mask eliminate the need to toggle masks on and off to check your work as you go and help you make the adjustments you need and get the quality you want
