Create studio-quality images with professional tools
- New! High Dynamic Range (HDR) module
Create perfectly exposed photos or stunning surrealistic images with the new HDR module. The module lets you merge photos taken at different exposures or experiment with the tonal range of your images. Try it with images taken using the auto-bracketing feature on your DSLR.
- New! Photo Blend
Now you can combine elements from several shots of the same scene to create the perfect photo. Remove unwanted cars or people from a street scene. Or improve a group photo by taking the best smiles from a series of shots.
- New! Fill Light and Clarity
Brighten shadows without changing the rest of your image with the Fill Light and Clarity filter. It's an easy way to draw attention to subtle details and increase the texture and depth of your photos.
- New! Selective Focus
Get the effect of expensive tilt-shift lenses without the cost! Selective Focus lets you turn a scene into a miniature world. You can also use it to add depth of field and blur out distracting details.
- New! Vignette effect
Draw attention to the focal point of your photo by applying a classic faded border around the edges. Use intuitive sliders to control the appearance of the edges by choosing the shape, color and tone, and adjusting the amount of blur, glow, and feathering.
- Enhanced! RAW Lab
Get a better look at your images with a larger preview area in the RAW Lab. The improved histogram lets you fine-tune images quickly and the new highlight recovery feature helps you restore detail in overexposed areas.
- New! Adjustment Layers
Use layers to protect your original image, especially with complex editing such as adding elements, creating image compositions, or applying artistic enhancements or text.
- Smart Carver™
Seamlessly remove objects from an image with professional quality. Smart Carver also lets you expand or contract objects without distortion.
- Object Extractor
The integrated Object Extractor isolates an object—even challenging cases such as flyaway hair and fuzzy pet fur—so it can be copied to a new background or a new background can be pasted behind it.
- Makeover tools
Make sure the people in your photos look their best with tools that are fun and easy to use. Help your subjects look thinner in seconds, whiten bloodshot eyes, smooth wrinkles, paint on a tan and remove blemishes.
