Topaz Labs Unleashes Topaz ReMask for Fast Image Extraction

The new Topaz ReMask from Topaz Labs is a Photoshop plugin that offers a faster way to extract images from any photograph. It takes advantage of familiar built-in Photoshop functions and users’ existing knowledge of masking techniques to make masking as fast and painless as possible.

The process is simple: 1. Your create a Tri-Map, simply tracing the outline of the image you wish to extract; 2. Apply ReMask, no questions asked; and 3. You get instant extraction. You may also refine the masking by a simple process.

Even with intricate image elements like hair, smoke and foliage, Topaz ReMask claims to quickly and painlessly extracts these details in the subject without requiring much user input.

It does this by using the areas specified by the user in the tri-map to keep and extrapolates that information to the gray areas. It uses a variety of kinds of image information including color, intensity, and pattern-based processing. It also finishes processing in mere seconds for most images.

Free to try for 30 days, Topaz ReMask full version retails for $70.
