Vertus Inc has slashed the price of its Fluid Mask 3 image extraction software to only $149, a drop of about 40 percent from its original cost. In dropping its price, Vertus hopes to reach a growing number of consumer camera users looking to perform expert-level editing tasks like masking to extract an image.
Fluid Mask 3, which functions both as a stand-alone program and plug-in, has been billed as the professionalsâ€™ choice for image extraction for its easy-to-use interface to power a complex technical process, especially suited to masking complicated images, such as wisps of human hair and leaves on a tree.
Fluid Mask 3 separates an image into puzzle-like pieces, allowing the editor to simply paint in the portions of the image to be kept or deleted. The softwareâ€™s unique â€œSmart Blendingâ€ capability and its powerful edge detection system make Fluid Mask 3 an intuitive workflow resource.
