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.

The PMA show, or Photo Marketing Association, continues its yearly tradition of maintaining a network of photo imaging as well as the experience and know-how of the industry. The PMA represents 20,000 members from over 100 countries, who are all active within the imaging industry. As a reflection of the changes in the market, the PMA organization has also changed and has become more diverse. Nowadays, the member group consists of representatives coming from photo retail, manufacturers, commercial photo labs, professional sports and news photography, in addition to small album print suppliers and photo processing centers. The PMA 2012 Trade show focuses on an industry which is heavily affected by the unstable situation of the global financial economy. However, whether the latter will also stand in the way of the innovation and product introductions, remains to be revealed by the PMA International Convention & Trade Show in Anaheim Convention Center (California, US).
