ABOUT INPIXIO

Based in Paris with additional development resources worlwide, InPixio is a brand of Softcity and the Avanquest Group. InPixio is positioned on the key segment of photography and “Mobile to Print”.  Their drive is reflected by a direct presence in all market channels: Apple App Store, Apple Mac App Store, Google Play, Windows Stores etc. Also, by forging close relationships with a network of prestigious partners (Intel, Microsoft, Samsung etc.), InPixio has met the expectations of a public that is ever more attracted to downloaded software and mobile applications.

 

INSTALLATION & SETUP

Just Drag & Drop the application to your applications folder and you’re done really. InPixio Photo Clip for Mac consists of two individual applications: Photo Cutter and Photo Eraser.

INPIXIO PHOTO CUTTER

 

INTERFACE INPIXIO PHOTO CUTTER

  • First of the applications ( Photo Cutter and Photo Eraser ), Photo Cutter is a handy and easy to use application. Its interface is simple and preferences options are not available nor are extended export functions. The interface is a three stage editing section: Crop , Cut-Out and Photomontage. Inpixio makes editing so easy and fun really! Removing /keeping areas is piece of cake for anybody.
    Load your picture/image
    Choose Crop now or at later stage
    Set brush size for Remove and Keep
    Set quality ( where I feel the Faster method works best ?)
    Select area
    Wait for computer editing
    Check result ( adjust Edge blur to your liking )
  •  

  • Now the fun part of InPixio Photo Cutter

Photomontage section provides some starting images to work with, but you can add any image to this section by using the + sign. Below I just show you some steps and a final composition just for show.
It’s all about showing you the easy steps in creating your composition.

EXPORT OPTIONS

When I earlier mentioned limited export options, I really mean limited!  There is no other format available as JPEG, which is a shame really. All we get is a simple Save and option for Folder location, which is unsatisfying and a missed chance for a nice product like Photo Cutter. Export options should provide uploads to ‘social media’ and different of saving formats (png, tiff etc).

 

FEATURES

  • Remove Image Backgrounds
    Cutout Defined Objects Easily
    Compose Photo Montages
    Clone Image Sections To Fill Space
    Save Multiple Projects
    Precision Selection With Lasso Tool
    Use Paint Brush For Large Objects
  • Zoom/Navigate Large Images
    Drag & Drop For Optimal Control

INPIXIO PHOTO ERASER

INPIXIO PHOTO ERASER

Well next application InPixio Photo Eraser is again easy to use, but in order to obtain some result you need to fiddle around some time. Erasing objects is in most reviews shown with people in the sea or stuff like that. Anyway, images with large area’s of same colouring and objects like water, field of grass etc. These larger erea’s makes it much easier on the software to calculate replacement pixels. However removing a person in a busy city, is another level all together.
The software is confronted with many different objects, colouring and intensities which makes it a hard job to perform well. No matter how hard you try, enlarging an image will always show its been tempered with.

Small objects can easily be removed, but a large object in a complex composition is almost impossible to remove. The Cloning feature helps out, replacing an area with a similar (colour ) chosen spot creates a fairly good result. Just check the two images below where a person was removed and the pavement and surroundings have been ‘Stamped and Cloned’. The end result is okay, considering it took me 10 minutes to do the job.

If the result is satisfying is up to you….

This is about the best one can achieve with non professional tools in complex compositions. Erasing technique is complex, and I guess Photoshop will do a better job with this same image, but Photoshop is not for dummies and this is where Inpixio excels : usability at beginners level and those who are happy with a straightforward approach towards photo editing.

Still I feel Inpixio is doing a great job, and editing is fast and accurate. It does have its limitations but will help the enthusiast in editing their image.

VERDICT

Whenever you need to touch up your images a bit, change or delete background, InPixio Photo Clip for Mac gives you professional-looking results with easy use. Both applications have easy interfaces to work with and anybody should be able to the job in no time. All provided tools are handy and the Cut-Out feature works really well. Photomontage adds some nice artistic creativity and when done properly results in good compositions. InPixio is Mojave ready and works stable and fast. There is a little critic on the provided export/save function in both applications as they have Save As format change available which is a shame. An export to social media would also be a bonus for future versions. Still even without this little critic, InPixio Photo Clip for Mac really is a great tool for anyone to use and deserves our 5 star rating.
