“You can close your mouth now, madam.” It’s a brave man who says that to Sue, but I was as amazed as she was during a demo at eBay Live in Boston: Fluid Mask from Vertus is one of the most stunning Photoshop plugins I’ve ever seen. They say a picture’s worth a thousand words, and rightly, professional sellers on eBay are always looking to improve their images. Many sellers take fantastic quality images but how do you cut out the background to get studio quality pictures?

Professional studios would normally charge a fortune for cropping complicated shapes and using tools like the photoshop lasso tool are time consuming. Now Fluid Mask from Vertus can cut the time to crop complicated images down to the work of a few seconds.
It doesn’t just stop at irregular shaped objects though, any image can be cropped whether it’s a tree with leaves to a model’s hair. Fluid Mask can cut the image in seconds to leave the parts of the image you want kept and cropping out the background.
You can download a free trial of Fluid Mask from the Vertus website. Fluid Mask 3 runs as a stand-alone and as a plug-in for Adobe’s Photoshop (CS2/CS3) including Photoshop Elements. If you’re as impressed as us then TameBay readers get this special offer:
