 AI FACE EDIT

Easily Retouch Faces

There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to portrait retouching – everyone is unique. That is why Ultimate’s new Artificial Intelligence (AI) powered Face Edit analyzes faces and gives you full control over the edits. You can adjust the shape of facial features and much more to enhance your subject’s natural beauty. Turn up the drama and push the sliders to the max, or add makeup. Are you retouching the same person on multiple photos? No problem! Save your adjustments as a custom preset and apply it to multiple images at the same time to speed up your workflow.

 PHOTOMERGE

Simplified Photo Merging

Utilize the Photomerge tools to effortlessly combine multiple images into one. Use the new Panorama Stitching tool to make wide panoramic shots, run High-Dynamic Range (HDR) to produce highly detailed photos, or apply Focus Stack to create an image with unparalleled depth of field.

Selections, Evolved
