All of the Best Masking Tools

Perfect Mask includes a complete collection of removal and clean up tools to help you create high-quality masks quickly and easily. Color recognition technology is at the heart of Perfect Mask and lets you identify specific colors to keep and drop for accurate background removal.

Masking Tools

Remove Areas Quickly and Easily

Brush away areas quickly and easily with the Drop Brush Tool. It will automatically expand you brush stroke to similarly colored areas to remove large areas of your image at once. With the Masking Brush, you can mask out areas to expose underlying layers—even at varying opacities.

Mask Through Difficult Areas

Mask through areas that are typically time consuming to mask with a simple swipe of the Refine Brush Tool.

In tough areas like hair, tree branches and wedding veils, you can simply brush with the Refine Brush Tool to automatically remove the background and any color fringes.

Keep & Remove Areas Based on Color

Specifically identify the colors that should be masked out and masked around with the Keep and Drop Eyedroppers. When you pair that information with the Magic Brush, you’ll be able to make powerful and precise masks in difficult places.

Automatic Solid Background Removal

Remove solid color backgrounds with the click of a button. This means that if you shoot on a solid color, all the masking work is done for you! This is perfect for green-screen and studio shooting.

Layered Workflow

Add new backgrounds to your images and place your masked objects where you want them. It's a great way to create composites and get the power of layers without Photoshop.

Background Library

Replace an unsightly or uninteresting background in an otherwise great image with one of the backgrounds included in Perfect Mask 8. Choose from skies, sunsets, walls and muslin backgrounds, just to name a few. Get creative!

Works Seamlessly with Popular Software

Perfect Mask works as a plug-in and is a perfect companion to Adobe Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Lightroom, and Apple Aperture. When you add it to the workflow of your choice, you can mask your images and perform tasks that are time-consuming, or impossible to do in any of these applications by themselves.

You can also use Perfect Mask as a complete standalone application all by itself.
