Kool Tools: PhotoScissors for Mac OS X
How can you easily clean the background of a photograph? One way to do this is to run some Photoshop-like editor, select the Magic Wand tool and outline the silhouette of the object to cut. A professional designer can manage this task in 10 minutes. The downside of the story: not all users possess enough designer skills to achieve the same result in such a short time.
PhotoScissors by TeoreX targets those users who don´t want to learn secrets of retouching or master graphic editors. A user marks foreground and background zones on the image and immediately sees the result on the screen. Minor glitches left after automatic processing of the image can be fixed right with strokes of the mouse.
The program automatically applies anti-aliasing filters for smooth edges of the cutout, and quickly processes even larger images. PhotoScissors is built for users who aren't designers or Photoshop geeks, but still need to extract objects or remove unwanted backgrounds from photos.
The price for a single license of PhotoScissors is US$19.99. PhotoScissors is available both for Mac OS X and Windows users. Go to http://www.photoscissors.com/ for more info.
