Fluid Mask

Most web designers do a lot of cut outs. We remove backgrounds from staff and product shots, and many other types of images. How much cut out work we need to do depends, of course, on how much work has been put into images when we receive them from our clients...

Making cut outs can be a VERY time consuming task, complex backgrounds, hair and tiny product details can take hours to cut out.

Vertus have released version 2 of their application FluidMask. It's a Photoshop plug-in and it can save you hours/days of hard work. Take a look at the screen shots and video tutorials below!
