FXHOME Imerge Pro - featured

The world’s first non-destructive RAW image compositor

Create pro-level composites with unlimited layers and zero baked-in changes. Imerge Pro is the first photo editing software to keep your image data RAW and your layers self-contained. Every edit is live. Every change is flexible. No need to hide and show layers to compare different compositions - each layer can hold multiple images or text items for every variation.

Make sure the coast is clear

Need your image to POP? Filters to the rescue! Make those blacks darker and the whites brighter with Clarity. With a Structure slider for ultimate contrast control, you’ll be sure to get the look you want every time.

Get down and dirty with detail

Sharpen up your act (and your image) by bringing back all the fine detail captured in your camera. Imerge’s detail and sharpening tools mean that you can increase or decrease fine lines and edges in your images with ease.

Easily remove fog and mist

Get that once-in-a-lifetime shot, no matter the weather. The Dehaze filter gives you the power to quickly clear bad weather or add some ominous fog for your own 221B Baker Street look. Elementary!

Fix it in post

Pick out your perfect colors, even after you’ve taken your shot. Tone down loud colors or change shades entirely with the Color Adjustment filter. Gift yourself total flexibility and the power of the rainbow.

Don’t stand in the shadows

Create the image you wish you’d captured in camera. Increase vibrance without ruining skin tones. Correct images, enhance contrast and fix exposure using Shadows & Highlights.

More than a cookie cutter

Stay on-trend with ease. From cinematic looks to fashion shots, Instagram-style filters to Ansel Adams-style black and white wonders, Imerge has got everything built-in. Add some personal flair with our customizable sliders.

No need to hide

In Imerge, masks aren’t just for layers (or costume parties). Use them to define where your effect or filter is applied. Ramp up the vibrancy of your sky without affecting the rest of your landscape using a gradient mask, or turn eyes from green to blue with a simple area mask.

Lots and LUTs of options

Create your own custom grade inside the software, or import your favorite LUTs for the perfect look in no time at all. Save time in post-production, unify your images with certain looks and start yourself down the road to a perfect color grade.

It’s easy keying green

No more manual keying! Imerge Pro automatically removes green screen from areas that would take hours with industry standard software. A+ composites, B+ effort.

Easily split hairs

Don’t cry over spilled green. Let Imerge Pro tackle the details with automated matte cleaners, spill suppression, and edge-color effects. Remove fringing on wispy strands, blend mesh veils, and never lose your edge.

Play with fire

The Luminance Key lets you precisely extract objects like fires and explosions from black or white backgrounds without spillage or spots. You can even harness the light source from your foreground to create a life-like matte effect.

Automatic color matching

Experimenting with different backgrounds in your composite? Imerge’s automatic color matching feature adds spill suppression (for those pesky green edges), light wrap and re-grades the foreground to match the background color.

Hundreds of looks, zero work

Experiment with backgrounds, foregrounds, and text in one batch process! Imerge Pro automatically adds the right edge colors and light wrap to every green screen combo, so that you can flip between options with ease.

It does what it says

Imerge Pro is designed by humans like you. So you won’t have to google every feature to know how to use it. Every slider and effect is where you need it to be. Need some tips or found a bug? Let us know.

Every layer is flexible

Keep your edits live and your color data RAW. No more compressing to 8-bit or worrying about the light wrap you added six layers ago. Easily undo any change.

Textual chemistry

We treat your text like any other layer. Jazz up your words by adding effects, outlines, gradients, and pattern fills. Like to experiment? We’ve got you covered with multiple text variations all inside one layer. That branding project just got a whole lot easier.

Edit images in all their glory

A new dawn of defined colors and fine detail is here! You now have the power to import and edit RAW files right in your image compositor. Want to go big? Imerge Pro handles huge full frame & medium format images (provided your computer is up to the task).

Platform & workflow

Imerge Pro is layer-based image compositing software that is GPU accelerated, making performance astonishingly fast, even on high-resolution images. Some of the unique features of Imerge Pro include:

  • Non-destructive: Nothing is baked in. Imerge Pro keeps your changes live and your color data RAW. Retain the full range of colors and gradients in that 16-bit California sunset throughout the editing process.
  • Your files at your fingertips: Imerge Pro's unique home screen has already found all the projects on your system, so you can just open them and get started.
  • Project templates or custom setup: Quickly choose from presets, or set your own canvas resolution and shape.
  • Does all image processing in 16-bit float.
  • Client preview on a second monitor: Impress clients and passing customers at shows with a clean, full quality preview on a second screen, with all interface elements hidden.
  • Import formats:
    • Standard formats including JPEG, PNG.
    • High-quality formats including TIFF, RAW.
    • Specialist formats including: EXR (single-layer RGBA), HDR & PSD (flattened).
  • Export formats: You can adjust the following file formats to control the compression used in the exported image: JPEG, TIFF, PNG.
  • We support metadata: Stored metadata including: EXIF, XMP & IPTC.

Batch processing

  • Layer content: Layers can be made up of multiple images and will provide the ability to export all the combinations.
  • Multiple outputs: Export a number of delivery formats so your content is client ready or Instagram ready from the get-go.
  • Content variations: Give yourself ultimate freedom - export multiple backgrounds, foregrounds, text layers to create hundreds of different iterations.

Built-in keying effects

  • Chroma key: Look, no hands! Throw out the rotobrush and let Imerge do all the hard work for you. Never slave over erasing fine hairs or lace detail again.
  • Color difference key: Use this great effect with images that contain transparent or semi-transparent areas, such as smoke, shadows, or glass for a detailed and realistic key.
  • Luminance key: Remove fire and explosions from black or white backgrounds with the intelligently designed Luminance Key. Let it select the pixels that need to be semi-transparent and see results instantly.
  • Spill removal: No use crying over spilled green screen. Don’t be afraid of the dreaded green shadow again with automatic Spill Suppression that neutralizes the shade and removes unwanted spill.

Intelligent masks

Masking is used to manually create a matte. A matte determines which parts of a layer are visible. Practically, this means that masks can be used to cut holes in your layers. But that’s not all - they can also be used to define where a filter is applied! Mask around just the eyes, or alter the exposure of the sky in a landscape quickly and easily.

There are 5 types of masks available in Imerge:

  • Gradient: Easily fade images together, fade to black and white, fade text or even create a photo reflection with a gradient mask.
  • Area: Use an area mask to hide portions of a layer and reveal the layers below. Perfect for combining multiple photos into a single image or getting rid of unwanted details.
  • Vector: Imerge’s vector masks are not pixel-based, and as a result are much more accurate.
  • Image luminance (intelligent): This incredible feature breaks an image down into channels of luminosity so that users can mask based on how bright or dark an area is.
  • Image color selection (intelligent): Much like luminosity, image color selection breaks an image down into color ranges, so that users can easily make specific selections based on color.
