  • Reduce image complexity: Simplify images while preserving key details.
  • Control the simplification level: Adjust the degree of simplification to achieve your desired outcome.
  • Preparing images for further processing: The simplified images can serve as a great starting point for additional editing or conversion. For instance, consider using our Outlines Extractor to transform your simplified image into a scalable vector graphic (SVG).

“Contours Extraction SVG”: In this app, the “Export SVG” button has been replaced with a more versatile export dropdown menu. This menu allows you to select the desired file format, including SVG, for a more streamlined and intuitive export process.

Additional Information:

No action required: This update will be automatically applied to your existing image editing/processing tools.

Version 1.69 (March 2024)

Color Replacement App Update: Enhanced Control with Color Mask Mode

This update to the Color Replacement Tool introduces the “Mode” setting, expanding your control over color adjustments.

This new feature offers two new options:

  • Keep shadows –  This retains the original functionality of preserving shadow details during color change.
  • Color Mask – Use an exact replacement color to mark specific image regions for further editing and segmentation. This functionality allows you to easily isolate areas and apply subsequent edits.

This update empowers you with more flexibility and opens doors to new creative possibilities in your color replacement workflows.
