Advanced retouching tools

Healing brush

The Healing Brush effect enables you to intelligently heal any part of an image, using another part as a source. Holding the Alt key, Simply select a source point by clicking on the image and start brushing.

Clone stamp

At the click of a button, you can precisely clone sections of your image using our smart Clone Stamp tool. Just select a source point by clicking on the image with the Alt key held and start brushing.

These customizable effects also have controls to scale, mirror, and rotate the healing or cloning, giving you more control over how the image is affected. 

Dynamic Contrast

Independently adjusting the fine, medium, and large-scale details of your image is easier than ever with our Dynamic Contrast effect. This effect is perfect for smoothing out skin details (especially when paired with brush masks).

Advanced Color Grading tools

In addition to Imerge Pro’s mighty toolkit consisting of Curves, a Saturation Editor, and Color Adjustment to name a few, Imerge Pro 8 offers 2 new advanced color grading tools.

Split Toning effect

The Split Toning effect rapidly reduces the time taken to map two different colors to the highlights and shadows in your image. 

Combined with our intuitive interface, visualizing color harmony is effortless with the built-in color wheel. This harmony can be ‘locked’ so you can shift the hue of one color and preserve a complementary pair by automatically shifting the other – saving you time and effort. 

Gradient Map effect

You can painlessly apply color grading and create stylized images with our Gradient Map effect. This creative tool allows you to create even more advanced cinematic color effects, mapping up to 16 color points –  each with balance controls and full RGBA color inputs – to different tones in your image. This effect is fully customizable as you can adjust the blend mode and global opacity for even more results.

This is perfect for creating stylistic, colorized designs and carrying out localized color replacement (when paired with vector masks or brush masks).
