Arcsoft plug-in Cut it Out
PMA 2010 Report
ArcSoft, Inc. announced the release of ArcSoft Cut-It-Out at the PMA 2007 Convention. Cut-It-Out is a new plug-in for Adobe Photoshop that allows users to separate objects in digital photos from their backgrounds, creating a mask. The segmentation technology provides a fast and accurate solution for complex object extraction. “Creating pro-level photo editing masks may now be achieved with unprecedented time savings and ease-of-use,” said Michael Downs, ArcSoft Vice President of Marketing and Business Development. “The Cut-It-Out plug-in gives users a preview of our high-end photo editing technology offerings which we will be expanding over the course of the year.”

Similar in functionality to Photoshop’s Extract command, Cut-It-Out offers superior speed and accuracy in selecting object details from image backgrounds. For example, wispy hair or intricate tree leaves are both difficult and time-consuming to isolate with other methods; Cut-It-Out has an easy-to-use interface that provides both quick, excellent precision and options for fine-tuning the object extraction. The plug-in works with Windows versions of Adobe Photoshop 6, 7, 8, and CS, and with Photoshop Elements.

Users interested in using Cut-It-Out with their digital photos may also want to download the free ArcSoft RAW Thumbnail Viewer plug-in. Released earlier this year, the free plug-in allows users to see thumbnails of virtually all RAW photo formats right within the “Thumbnails” view of Windows Explorer – instead of the generic icon that Windows displays by default - enabling people to browse and manage their most important images without having to launch special software. ArcSoft Cut-It-Out is offered for retail purchase for US$99.99.
