It supports a good range of image formats as input: TIFF, PNG, TIF, JPEG, BMP, ARW, DCR, ERF, MRW, RAW, RW2, and more. When your image is enhanced, you can use output icon to save the image in Bitmap, PNG, TIFF, or JPEG format. While saving the image, you can also set the output size.
Use Effect Presets:
Dozens of beautiful effect presets are available to choose from, like city night, bright color, Japanese style, green forest, cool white, etc. You can apply any effect on photo by double-clicking. You can also go online to browse and download more effects. The preview size of effects can also be set by you as large, small, and medium.
Select The Edit Mode and Use Options:
This free image editor has two different edit modes: Global and Regional. When you have to edit the whole image, then you need to select Global Edit mode. Under this mode, crop, red-eye removal, clone, rotation, and flip options are available that you can use according to your requirement.
When you have to edit only a part of the input image, you need to use Regional Edit mode. This mode contains brush, lasso, gradient, and quick selection tool. Simply select a tool, adjust its properties, and apply the changes with that tool in the photo.
Compare Original and Output Photo:
The center area of its interface lets you view the changes in input photo and compare the output photo with input photo. You can compare images vertically, horizontally, or in full view mode.
