Best Features of Movavi Photo Editor (Version: 5.1.0):
Coming to the best features that the Movavi photo editor software has to offer we have to lot to say about, thanks to its team which has given concentration on what users look for in a good photo editor.
Clean and neat User Interface:
We cannot start spilling out the best features of this software until we tell you how beautiful and interacting the User interface is. For any user, the ease of use of any software plays an important part to make the decision to buy. The user interface along with an 8-step tutorial makes it more intuitive and responsive. All the options in the software are clearly mentioned and during the tutorial, it will let you know what that function does.
Certainly for any amateur to just take beautiful photos and do editing for them will be a cakewalk in this software. Shiny bluish interface with neat text and options placed at right positions are just lucrative and hard to ignore.
Magic Enhance is definitely one of the finest features of this software. The reason why we say it is finest is that it makes the software stand out from the crowd. So basically you take your image which might not be that good and click on Magic Enhance option and wait for few seconds for the magic to occur. Yes! The magic really happens, the software’s algorithm enhances the photo.
Certainly, there will be some pixels of the image that are automatically enlightened with brightness or contrast or even the saturation that the image really comes out beautiful. Also, there is an option that will allow you to control how much that you want to enhance the image which, by means let you take control of brightness, saturation, contrast and color options as well. If you still can’t believe my words, take a note on the pictures below.
As you can see from the top image that the image on left is before enhancing and the image on right is after enhancement. If you notice it clearly, the image on right has been made more contrasting since the colors of sand are clearly visible, The colors on the people shirts are more vibrant and the sky is just as we want it to be.
Movavi Photo Editor Background Change:
Now, how many times have we suffered taking pictures and later recognizing that some complete stranger or any of your friends has popped in suddenly into your frame of the picture! That’s when you realize if something can be done so that you can remove that person or thing from the background! Lucky for you, the Movavi photo editor comes with a one-click solution for that and can change the background instantly.
With this single button, you will be able to completely remove the background by just cropping out the portion of the image you want and which you don’t want. The image that you select as wanted will be kept as it is and that you don’t want can be replaced with black or white backgrounds or even with any other images.
Now please don’t judge my photo-shopping skills, but to just to give you an idea, I have selected the border of the portion of the boy holding the goat using a brush option (you can also use Lasso Tool to perform the selection) and then I selected the part that I don’t want in the image. After selection, the software will show you what part of the image will be available after selection. Based on that you can proceed or still make changes and enhance it.
Again similar to the above option, the scenario wherein unnecessary objects come into the frame of your photograph and you want to make sure that your photograph looks crystal clear without any blurred objects, then this option will help you out. Similar to the background change, you just have to select the object(s) you want to remove, highlight them using the brush tool present on the right and click on start erasing option.
Instantly after few seconds, you will notice that the object you have selected is gone from your photograph. The attention to detail(s) will play a major role here if you want to showcase yourself as a pro and still use minimal effort and time in learning same operations doing in great photo editors like Adobe Photoshop. This Movavi photo editor will surely ease your process of photo editing if you’re the one who spent most of your time in it.
Touch up as the name itself describes is to make few things in your photograph look better. Now with all due respect, there will be certain situations when you have taken a photograph but because of improper or poor lighting, the skin tone would have suffered and might change the appearance in holistically. In such situations, this particular option could be really helpful.
With this option, you will be able to enhance Skin, eyes and other body parts like hair color, face slimming. The technology can do anything and with these tools, you can actually make a person or object look slimmer or even bigger. Hope you can impress your girlfriend by making her look beautiful or slimmer ha! Under the skin, you have the options to smoothen the skin, remove the wrinkles, remove the blemishes, remove unnecessary shine, add foundation and improve blushing.
With eye options you can remove the red eye which occurs more frequently, you can enlarge the eye which I am personally a fan of, change the eye color, make the eyeshadows look brighter and much more. Take a look yourself what kind of options they provide and you will be surprised to see all of them.
Text, Watermark, and other highlights:
Now, this seems to be a pretty familiar feature but the way it is handled in this software is nice and clean. Simply, take up a photo and add any kind of text anywhere you want in the photo. Not limited to the text alone, you can add some pretty good filters, different fonts, vary the direction of the font that it should appear and standard color options. You can also add watermarks to your photographs if you consider them confidential or copyright ones.
Simply add any text you want to add to represent your copyright and then decrease the opacity of the text to your need. In such way you can make the watermark look outstanding in your pic. You can also add a frame border to the text that you add as shown that makes it subtle and neat looking rather than just being similar to many other photos around.
Movavi Photo Editor Editing Tools:
Another important aspect of this tool is that every editing option in the tool is clearly mentioned on how it works. For the first time user, whenever you click on any of the options that are available it shows you set of instructions on how to make use of those options. You can always select a checkbox that will allow the software not to show up the same again.
The standard options to crop, rotate the image, resize the image, insert any other image and make the picture look clearer are well handled as you might expect from any of the standard Photoshop tools. There is also an effects section that allows you to choose from the different standard template of effects. These effects we suppose will get updated from time to time as per the user needs.
Now that you have understood what features and what this software comprises of. Let us walk you through the advantages and disadvantages of this product in simple bulletin points.
- Simple options that are widely utilized in editing photos
- Instruction sets to help the first time user or learner are well shown
- Very easy to use
