TeoreX has announced PhotoScissors 2.0 (http://www.photoscissors.com/download.html). The cross-platform application removes unwanted backgrounds from photos.
Version 2.0 provides 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 neater and more precise contours of the cut out object. The “Shadow” option applies a transparent shadow to the picture. A new interactive processing mode optionally allows applying all changes to the image in real time.
The price for a single license of PhotoScissors is US$19.99. PhotoScissors is available both for Mac OS X and Windows users.
