Serving as a fully-featured and intuitive photo editing solution, the download version of Serif's PhotoPlus X6 handles all aspects of a post-production workflow. Beginning with support for editing RAW image files to an extensive variety of selection tools, this program includes an array of tools, functions, and modes to benefit a complete editing process.
Non-destructive and layer-based working methods are supported, including the ability to "uncrop" imagery to return to the original photograph's format. Benefitting the designer working with photographs, vector masks and sub-pixel guides can also be used for greater precision when adding lines, shapes, or making creative masks within photographs. For creative enhancement in a more photographic sense, different color settings can be directly applied to images as well as film grain, tilt-shift, and other lens-inspired effects. Among other editing tools, a range of corrective functions can be utilized to retouch and restore photographs, such as a Clone tool, Blemish Removal tool, and a Scratch Remover tool.
The X6 version of PhotoPlus has been updated to support 64-bit operating systems from Windows in order to garner faster overall performance, especially when handling larger file sizes and when batch processing.
