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 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.
