Just going to this website on 24/12/13, knowing that the offer was over, I thought to click on the (unusual?)"Play Now" button at the top of the page, which I am sure was not there when the offer was on. Well, it led to the "iLivid" website, asking you to download a "useful" download manager. I wasn't having any of that -- so I googled for information. And sure enough, there are articles about the iLivid VIRUS, and malware, etc. In fact, you click on that, and you have helped yourself to a browser hijacker!

I don't suppose more than half a dozen people will read this comment NOW, so many days after the original offer -- but if you do, BE WARNED. If you clicked on "Download iLivid", you will need to immediately clean your computer with an AV programme, like MalwareBytes...

The lesson is, if you are faced with a programme you have no knowledge of, google for reviews of it. It could save you from a lot of grief.....

I balked on the install, when I found "shareware" in the agreement. I was looking forward to it. I'm wondering if the "ragged edges" referred to, has to do with the pixel size. I'm spoiled with MS Office, Picture Manager, but any re-sizer can increase the picture size (and processing time), for smoother edges if this is the case.

Well, I've installed it, and run it, and it runs like a charm. Absolutely terrific! I think for what it does, and the ease with which it does it, it is the best program that I have encountered. With daylight to number two!

Having said that, however, I think it is overpriced at $45 - I have several freebie programs which will do much the same, though with considerably less convenience. I suppose it comes down to how much use one has for a program like this; if I needed to do what it does every day, I'd maybe pay the $45 for the sheer ease of use. Thinking of the other paid programs that I have, and what they do that I find worth paying for, I'd figure that about $15-$20 would be a fair price.

To the makers I say: great job; you have set the standard high with this type of app. You also set the price high, which risks encouraging other software companies to copy and under-cut you, and so take away your competitive advantage. I wish you well with your challenge to make a good profit for your efforts.

Tested it.

Result: Lousy. Would not use it even if it was freeware.

Extremely troublesome and un-intuitive user interface.
Bad output.

Uninstalled immediately.

Tried to install version 3.0.4 over version 3.0.2 and it reverted to a trial. Reinstalled version 3.0.2 as this is a keeper.

ClippingMagic indeed looks good, but it seems to be an online service, not downloadable software. Also, it also appears to be in BETA, and free only while it is in BETA. I don't think it is quite fair to compare it to giveaway downloadable software.

similar freeware, but results sometimes not perfect, too

Giovanni,

Checked out the url that you had suggested:
http://clippingmagic.com

As far as I could see, this is only web based at the moment.
Please correct me, if I am wrong.

Unfortunately, the last time I downloaded something from TintGuide.com (from their site), along with their app it installed what looked like malware that may have been a password grabber. I won't be using ANY of their software, free or from a giveaway.

Great program, I have installed and tried it out this morning. It worked fine on my XP system.

With this program along with INPAINT and PICASA3, I am in control of my photos now!

Thank you and GAOTD.

@ 14 Anon - I know it is nearly Christmas, but most probably not! If Tint Guide had wanted to giveaway the latest version, they would have… That being said, as long as the giveaway is not over, you can try… and reinstall this version if it doesn’t work. Please let us know!

This GAOTD is version 3.0.2 (released December 2) and the current version on their site is 3.0.4 (released December 11).
The changes between the first and the latter are:

"Fixed some bugs." (3.0.3)
"Auto installation of plug-ins for Adobe Photoshop CC was added." (3.0.4)

So, I'm somewhat curious about those "bugs".

And, on a side note: I'm a little confused...

How does security and firewall software tie in with this GAOTD?

Cheers

Will it still work if upgrading to the latest version 3.0.4 from the official website? Did anybody try that?

Nice software. Room for improvement. The how-to videos are a nice touch. Playing with the software I found some items. 1. no mater where I clicked I couldn't get the line on the edge of the item to be cut out. would be nice to just click on the line and drag it. 2 When pasting. No way to move the object once pasted. No way to delete the object once pasted. No way to re-size the image once pasted.

Thank you for the offer. I have problems though: when i was watching the demo, i get ACCESS VIOLATION AT ADDRESS 00517A12 IN MODULE 'PICTURECUTOUTGUIDE.EXE'. READ OF ADDRESS 0000008.

I apologise for the caps lock. Not shouting, but just thought the developer might notice it. Thanks

The name brought me here. I would have loved to find some software that did a good job of automating cutout's but the un-refuted comments that it gives jagged edges and relies on the object being "solid" (whatever that means) kind of defeats the purpose of having it so I will come back later to see some more comment. But if it really is only capable of jagged edges then that needs working on.

Tint Guide looks like the graphic arm of Two Pilots the latter having always made excellent software, hence I had high hopes.
Thankfully I wasn't disappointed, it installed easily as a registered program and on opening excellent examples of its use were presented.
I dived straight in with a complicated image; the bit you want to outline you roughly mark in green, the background you roughly mark in red and then you press separate and hey presto the program outlines your object ready to copy.
It worked amazingly well considering this was my first attempt with the program.
Selecting complex objects in images as always been very difficult and this program makes it a breeze.
As a couple of commentators have noted the edge can be slightly jagged but nothing that a simple piece of editing will not fix.
The image I worked on today is one in which I have been trying to extract part of for a few months with no success.
Today in a very quick test I did it in a matter of minutes, what more could you ask?

This company never make cheap software but they always seem to create quality software.
Most certainly a keeper in my book.

When trying to cut out an image, manual intervention is always required. I looked at their examples, I didn't need to install it to see that it's no match for Topaz ReMask 3, which doesn't require solid objects and doesn't leave jagged edges. Even Topaz ReMask requires multiple adjustments, but it is able to retain the dog's hairs at the edges. But if you're satisfied with jagged edges, this is free for today. You missed out on most Black Friday / Cyber Monday deals, but there are still some end-of-year specials. Agnitum Outpost Security Suite 9 was released. It and Outpost Firewall are available with a lifetime license, offer valid through the end of the year.

Picture Cutout Guide can work as a plugin for Photoshop or compatible graphics softs. The .8bf files (32 or 64bit) can be found in Program Files (x86)\Picture Cutout Guide, and copied in the plugin folder of your favorite compatible soft.

@ 2- jenners: Try applying over the jagged edges the “blurr” brush of any graphics freeware.

I tried to remove a background. It worked fairly well. The edge was a little jagged.

program seems useful, not an expert on these type of programs so cant offer alternatives, apologies.

reason i chose to try this software was i was trying to create a banner and wanted to see what the programme offered, as i have some images on a scene i wanted bits cut out.

havent used the program fully yet but only thing i would point out is you seem to get jagged edges of the cutout,i realize this will be from the image, but be nice if it had a built in auto type thing to do the smoothing, expert users out there may know of editing programs etc where you can smooth the image etc (or one might be included in programme havent tested properly yet)

not great feedback sorry lol, but looks useful apart from the jagged edges bit, but i suppose if you regularly use editing programs like this the smoothing the pic is all part the fun.
