Powerful repair tools

Fix your damaged and less-than-perfect pictures easily. Simply scan in your old photos then edit them with PhotoPlus X5! The scratch remover is ideal for removing creases and marks from your images, and restoring them to their former glory.

It’s also easy to remove spots, freckles, loose hair, and anything else with the help of the blemish remover, while the clone tool can make unwanted objects, such as background scenery, disappear!

Be Creative

Turn your photos into works of art, copying classic styles like watercolour, oil, impressionist and more in one click! Or for more traditional enhancements, there are plenty of filters to add stylish effects like film grain, lens flare, page curls and more.

Take people and objects from one photo and place them in another using the intuitive and easy-to-use Cutout Studio. Add text, complete with effects like drop shadow and reflection, to any image – perfect for adding captions and comments.

Calibrate your graphics tablet’s pressure-sensitivity with the built-in studio to paint or draw with lifelike brush and pen strokes. There are lots of brushes and textures to choose from or you can even create your own.
