[Pro11] Retouch brush tool

We introduce the new “Retouch brush tool” of the SILKYPIX Developer Studio Pro11.

Conventional SILKYPIX has been able to erase small dust, that has been taken in photos using the “Spotting tools.” However, it took time to repeatedly click on a large object to erase it.

The “Retouch brush tool” can be deleted from the preview screen by tracing the unwanted objects you want to erase with a brush. As a result, it is possible to easily erase large unwanted objects without taking time.

When you finish dragging unwanted objects with the brush, the copy source is automatically selected from the top, bottom, left, or right.

When you hold the cursor at the copy source, it becomes a hand mark, and you can drag to specify the copy source part. Use a brush to move the copy source so that the traced part becomes natural without discomfort.
