Cosmo II What’s New
Cosmo II provides more flexibility and better results than ever before. New blurring algorithms give you beautiful skin smoothing that feels completely natural and untouched.
Cosmo II’s new Eye Dropper for Skin Sampling makes it easy to select skin within your shot.
Refined Visual Feedback
Cosmo II’s Selection controls allow you to see and control the skin selection so that you can be sure you are editing your subject, not your background.
Why Use Cosmo II?
Get away from manual beauty work
Let’s face it: Getting skin to look good is hard work. Doing beauty touchup by hand typically involves the same repetitive, monotonous (and did we mention boring?) tasks of blurring, regraining, and cloning. Cosmo’s automatic touchup frees you from that production work so you can concentrate on the creative stuff.
Default settings that deliver
A lot of thought went into the default Cosmo settings. To elaborate, as soon as you apply Cosmo, it just works. You can let the software do basic cosmetic improvement without ever touching the controls. Our dedicated Skin tools give results you can count on. Bam!
Smooth skin to a believable texture
The Skin Soften slider does a great job of softening and smoothing skin texture. Look at this as your personal airbrushing tool, applied at a low setting for believability. Skin Softening helps with subtleties of hiding blemishes and lightening wrinkles while preserving the natural skin grain.
Colorista keyer for smart smoothing
To point out, Cosmo uses sophisticated keying technology from Colorista II to really hone in on skin tones and identify the area to smooth out. With advanced Colorista technology under its hood, Cosmo works quickly and powerfully to make beautiful results – and beautiful people.
Keep important details sharp
Cosmo does a great job of only smoothing out the skin, but it’s good to be certain that your model’s facial details stay in focus. Our Detail slider brings back the sharpness of important details.
Color correct that rosy glow
Another key point, incorrect lighting during a shoot can turn the model’s skin red or even worse, green or purple. The Skin Color and Skin Squeeze sliders bring skin into an acceptable range of pleasing skin color. Use Color and Squeeze to nudge the skin hue of any ethnicity and eliminate unwanted color cast.
Accurately identify skin tones
Our unique skin range visualizer, Show Skin Overlay, draws a hatched grid over colors that are identified as skin tones. This makes your skin adjustments easier and more accurate.
