ImageSkill is pleased to announce version 3.1 of Background Remover plug-in for Windows with ten-lingual (English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Dutch, Russian, Japanese, Chinese Simplified, and Chinese Traditional) interface. The plug-in fast and easily extracts opaque and semitransparent objects from a complex background of a digital image while preserving such details, as flying hair or blurred edge.

It simply removes an unwanted part of an image and subtracts background color in the transition zone between an object and background. Unlike the knowing masking tools Background Remover is not implemented as a brush. You only need to mark very roughly an object and background colors and choose the cutting out tool from a toolbar. Perfect object extraction is achieved in a shorter amount of time than using competitive tools and techniques such as Adobe Magic Extractor, Corel Knock-Out, Microsoft Expression and so on.

    Features at glance:
  • Extraction of different object types (solid, lace-like and semi-transparent objects)
  • Very simple and intuitive user interface with only a few controls
  • Original high-speed extraction algorithms
  • Color unmixing for background replacing
  • Tools for debris removing and holes filling within received mask
  • Switching between original image and result one and preview the extracted object against a colored matte background for result checking
  • Multilingual interface (English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Dutch, Russian, Japanese, Chinese Simplified, and Chinese Traditional)
  • 16-bit image support

Plug-in has simple install and uninstall procedures and automatically detects suitable graphics hosts.

ImageSkill Background Remover is compatible with Adobe Photoshop (Elements), Corel (Jasc) Paint Shop Pro, Photo-Paint etc. Background Remover runs on MS Windows 2000/2004/XP/NT3/NT4/Vista.

The full version of ImageSkill Background Remover is available for $49 including VAT.
