Eraser Brush
Top  Previous  Next

The innovative eraser brush allows you to restore parts of the original picture by painting over previously changed areas. You can soften the undo effect by defiining an Opacity
and Feather. Turn off Paint Over, if you want to have an equal undo effect in larger areas.

The eraser undoes all image improvements or paint operations. Some typical situations:
·the Fill Bucket spilled color into unwanted areas  
·the Red Eye Correction was too intense in one eye  
·too much contrast in Exposure correction removed the texture of the sky  
·Noise Removal also deleted important detail in the face of a person  
·you forgot to use a feather on the Paintbrush, and now you can see the brush borders  
·the removal of a blue stain in Color Correction unfortunately also faded the clothes of a person in the image  
·a Histogram stretch to lighten the foreground also ruined the colors of the sunset  

Note, that some eraser operations can be prevented beforehand, if you create selections (with feathers) before applying corrections or brush tools.

·When going into Zoom or Selection mode, the Eraser mode is disabled. You have to press the Brush button again, in order to resume.  
·When selecting parts of the image using the selection tools, the eraser brush applies only to these selections. Selections can also have a feather, reducing the effect of the eraser close to the selection borders.  
·See the General Settings topic for brush options.
