PhotoScissors 3.0

This Mac program helps you cut out segments from pictures.

This utility was designed for people who don't have much experience in image editing and wish to easily extract parts from their favorite pictures. PhotoScissors lets you import various types of image formats, comes with easy to configure output settings, and offers you quality pictures.

You can use this application whenever you wish to extract an element from a photo. For instance, the program comes in handy if you need to eliminate the background image from a digital photo and preserve a single element, such as an object or person. You just need to indicate the area you wish to keep with a green marker. The background image can be marked with the red pen.

A good thing is that you can always undo an image alteration. The app lets you use the Undo option or the integrated erasing utility.

Furthermore, this new version of the app provides you with plenty of useful improvements (user interface, performance, etc.) and new features.

The trial version of the PhotoScrissors program lets you check how the app works in terms of configuring the output settings. However, you cannot export any images until you acquire the full version of the program. So, you won't be able to know exactly the complete list of supported image formats (for the output files) until you buy the product.

Taking into consideration the aforementioned aspect as well as the fact that you can find cheaper solutions for extracting objects from pictures, I'd say you should look for a different image editor.
