Object Selection with AI

The new version offers two AI-based selection features: the Object Selection tool and the Select Subject command.

Use these handy, time-saving tools in your design projects!

Object Selection

The new selection tools are available for all license types, including the Free version of AliveColors.

The Object Selection tool (available in the Toolbar) is designed to select multiple objects or areas in an image using a specially trained neural network. This tool is extremely helpful when you need to separate an object from the other ones.

The Select Subject command (in the Select menu) allows you to quickly and automatically select the main, the most noticeable subject (or several noticeable subjects) in an image using an artificial intelligence algorithm.

Select an object on a photo with a single click!

Clone Stamp & Chameleon Brush on Multiple Layers & Documents

The Clone Stamp and Chameleon Brush have been improved! These cloning, healing, and creative tools are now even more helpful and flexible.

The new features make it easier to work with complex documents. You can choose layers in the Sample pop-up menu and adjust the Clone Source settings.

Improvements in Clone Stamp & Chameleon Brush

In the new version, these tools have been combined into one group in the Toolbar.

The Clone Stamp tool allows you to copy areas of an image while maintaining the color range, shadows, texture, illumination, and other characteristics of the cloned object.

The Chameleon Brush allows you to seamlessly clone a fragment of an image, adapting the cloned object to a new background. The unique feature of this tool is the Artistic Cloning mode.

Retouch your photos and create amazing collages and compositions!
