Imerge Pro - Next Generation Image Editing.

Create professional photo composites with unlimited layers and zero baked-in changes. Unlike other programs, 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.

Bespoke RAW engine

Imerge has a powerful RAW engine that gets the best out of your photography. Don’t have time to spare? Never fear, as Imerge Pro’s flexible RAW engine is custom-built and GPU accelerated, giving you lightning-fast speed when importing any RAW file.

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.

Color support

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.

Benefit from all the flexibility and power of working with RAW when editing that cloudy landscape image. Recover blown-out highlights in the sky with a simple slider using Imerge’s impressive Exposure effect.

Supported formats

Want to go big? Imerge Pro handles massive full-frame & medium format images (provided your computer is up to the task).

Whatever the format, RAW images imported into Imerge are now automatically lens corrected based on the camera, the lens, and the focal length.

Play nicely with others

Now there’s no reason to limit yourself. Save your project with a full render, and open it directly as an asset in our video editing and visual effects program, HitFilm Pro. Create textures in Imerge Pro to apply to your particles or 3D models in HitFilm Pro, or composite photos together to make a digital set extension.

Keep things fast

Unlike other compositing tools, Imerge Pro is built to be almost entirely GPU accelerated. Load, edit, and process faster – leaving you more time to focus on the important stuff. Have a beast of a project to work on? Imerge’s preview downsampling feature will drastically speed up your workflow without affecting exports.

Imerge Pro... merges the best parts of
Photoshop and Lightroom.

Infinite Layers


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, and keep the quality.

Group up

The ability to group layers allows you to simply organize your project, alter the way your final composites are rendered, and even put a mask over a whole group of images at once.

User friendly

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

Customizable & stackable

Adjust and refine effects to your heart’s content. Every effect in Imerge Pro has transform properties to give you ultimate control over every element. Build the perfect look by applying multiple effects to the same layer, and change how they’re applied by switching up the order. You can even save and export presets for future use – the power is in your hands.

The devil’s in the details

Professional retouchers rely on Imerge Pro to give them full control over the finer details. As well as the dedicated Skin Retouch effect – fine, medium, and large-scale contrast can be adjusted in any given area with the powerful Dynamic Contrast effect. Need to clean up an edge with contour or perspective? No problem. Imerge’s Clone Stamp and Healing Brush tools can be scaled, rotated, and flipped to fill in the gaps.

Ultimate color control

Take control of your color with Imerge Pro’s advanced color grading tools. Adjust custom color ranges whilst protecting blacks, whites, greys, and skin tones with the Color Adjustment effect. Achieve natural adjustments across the color spectrum with the Saturation Editor. You’re even equipped to create your own, custom cinematic grades with the Split Tone, Tone Coloring, and Gradient Map tools (or apply a LUT if you’re in a pinch!)

Precision masking

Fine-tune your composites with the stroke of a brush or custom-defined shapes. Imerge Pro’s area, brush, and vector masks give you the tools you need to be a perfectionist at every stage of creation.

Industry-leading keying


No more manual keying! Imerge Pro’s powerful chroma key automatically removes green screen from areas that would take hours with industry-standard software. Let it tackle the details with automated matte cleaners, spill suppression, and edge-color effects. A+ composites, B+ effort.

Unmatched fine-tuning

Bad green screen is painfully noticeable, so that’s why we’ve made our green screen technology the best a photographer can get. We give you all the customization you need to blend your subject seamlessly with their surroundings. From removing fringing on wispy strands of hair, cutting out mesh veils, and softening every edge, you have all the tools to make a realistic photo composite.
