Serif speeds up PhotoPlus editor


English developer Serif says its updated photo editing software “allows photographers at any level to quickly and easily create outstanding images, at an affordable price.”

PhotoPlus X6 is compatible with Windows 8. New features include a smart edge refinement tool which selects and adjusts intricate parts of photos such as hairs and leaves; non-destructive crop; tilt shift effects with Depth-of-Field filter; vector masks; and improvements to noise reduction, zoom range and guides.  Also, with its new 64-bit engine, PhotoPlus X6 edits very large images without slowing down.

The $90 program “offers a great balance between quick fixes and advanced editing,” the company says.
