Coming Soon – New Photo Studio 10
Photo Clip gets a new name and some amazing new features!
New Photo Studio 10 (formerly Photo Clip) will be available on March 25, 2020.
Photo Clip is now Photo Studio
The first thing to know about version 10 of Photo Clip is that it has a new name: Photo Studio. Why change the name? Because the latest version of the software is so packed full of features that we decided it was time for an upgrade.
Our flagship Photo Clip software has evolved a lot over the years, from a program for making background cutouts to a multi-functional suite of applications, covering a range of editing needs from erasing to enhancing.
Cutout and background erasing is now just one aspect of the program. Recent versions of the software also include:
- Advanced photomontage possibilities, such as adding new images, backgrounds, text and stickers to a photo.
- Erase tools, which remove distracting items from your photos, while preserving the original background.
- Tools for correcting and enhancing your photos. For example, the auto-correction function, which adds color and brightness to photos with just a single click.
We believe that this more advanced software deserves a new name that better encapsulates all of these capabilities. Photo Studio describes exactly what our software is today: a fully-fledged editing program that lets you create your pictures in your way. We’re really excited about this new identity and hope you like the new name as much as we do.
And rest-assured, the name might be changing but all the things our users love about Photo Clip are here to stay: Photo Studio 10 will still be a user-friendly photo editing software, full of fun content to help you create the perfect photos and photomontages. Read on to find out more about all the new features and improvements in Photo Studio 10.
New in Photo Studio 10
As with every new release, we have updated Photo Studio to provide even more editing possibilities. This time, we have also put a big focus on improving performance and usability so that you can edit better and faster than ever. Here is a selection of the top new features to look forward to in Photo Studio 10.
The perspective tool is a smart new feature that is useful for correcting photos of buildings and architecture.
You have probably had that experience where you want to photograph a beautiful building but you can’t get far enough way to get it in shot, so instead you have to shoot “upwards” or from an angle. This leads to something called perspective distortion in your image, where the lines of your building don’t appear straight. For example, if you photograph a tall building, such as a cathedral, from below, the result may look tilted as if the structure is leaning away from you.
The Perspective tool helps you to remove this distortion and correct any tilted or skewed appearance in your photos. If this sounds complicated, don’t worry: the tool is very easy to use with three automatic settings, for horizontal, vertical and full correction. After the auto correct has done its work, you can use simple sliders to make the final adjustments yourself. Finally, if you want to have full control over the process there is also a manual mode where you can apply guides to your photo to make a precise correction.
In short, you can say goodbye to (unwanted) slanting in your architecture photos, thanks to this new tool.
inPixio Photo Transfer
To coincide with the launch of Photo Studio, we are releasing a complimentary new app that you can download from the App Store or Google Play. With the inPixio Photo Transfer app, you can copy photos easily from your smartphone to your PC or Mac using Wi-Fi.
The app was designed as a helpful tool to facilitate photo editing with PC and Mac-based inPixio software. With a few clicks and a Wi-Fi connection, you can transfer your entire photo library to your laptop and download images ready for editing in Photo Studio. There is no need for a cable, cloud service, or software and your photos remain safe with no external storage. The app is also a useful way to back up your photos to your computer and save space on your cell phone.
EXIF data and Histogram
EXIF metadata is a set of information attached to a photo and stored automatically in your camera or smartphone. This can include date, location and more. When you upload a photo to Photo Studio, you can now view and edit all of this information. For example, you can add tags and ratings or even copyright information to a photo. This is useful for organizing your photos to help you quickly find what you’re looking for. It’s also especially useful if you upload your photos to online platforms such as Flickr.
Another new source of information in Photo Studio 10 is the Histogram. This measures exposure levels in your photo so you can get a better idea of the light and dark areas in an image. Referring to the histogram when editing exposure settings can help you to get the right level of brightness in your image.
New Local Adjustments
The selective retouching tab allows you to adjust specific sections of your photo with gradients or the paintbrush.
In Photo Studio 10, we have added new sliders to the selective retouching tab, meaning that you can now make even more edits to your photos. The new local adjustments are hue, whites, blacks, dehaze, sharpness and noise reduction.
Photo Studio 10 now supports RAW format images. Raw images are not pre-processed and compressed like standard image formats such as JPEG, meaning they take up a lot of disk space. Because raw images are heavy and because the format varies between camera manufacturers, it is often difficult to open them in software programs. However, thanks to improvements made by inPixio developers, now you can open and edit all you raw images in Photo Studio.
Some photographers like to work with raw images because it gives them more control over the finished result. If this sounds like you, why not also check out our Eclipse HDR Pro software, which offers advanced RAW processing capabilities.
Interactive Film Strip
We mentioned usability improvements, and this is one of the big ones. The filmstrip is the panel at the bottom of the Photo Studio interface that displays all the images in a selected file. In Version 10, it is now fully interactive. This means that in Photo Editor you can filter images easily by date taken, camera, file type and a range of other criteria. You can also apply edits directly from the filmstrip. For example, you can autocorrect an image with a simple right-click without opening it in the workspace. You can also delete edits in the same way.
Even with the easiest software, you may need a little extra help from time to time. Our video tutorials are designed to guide you through some of the main tools and the main uses of Photo Studio, so that you can get to know the program more quickly and get the best possible results.
Photo Studio 10 comes with a new section for Video Tutorials: simply click on the link to access the playlist of tutorials. A database of support resources is also available from the Assistance section of the menu.
Our users requested it and we are more than happy to oblige! In Photo Studio 10, you will find a selection of new backgrounds and other visual content in both the Photo Cutter and Photo Editor modules. Try personalizing the new stickers by editing colors and more. And of course, don’t forget to try out the new backgrounds in your photomontages. We particularly love the new Hollywood background and cannot wait to see what our users do with this!
