Corel Ships KnockOut 1.5
New version adds precision color selection capabilities

by David Nagel
Executive Producer

Corel Corp. today announced the availability of KnockOut 1.5 for Macintosh. The new version of this masking application includes a new loupe zoom to magnify selections and the ability to verify mask accuracy by changing the underlying color or inserting another image. It also includes a new syringe tool that can amplify background colors for more accurate color selection. Other features include:

  • Inside and outside object tools for creating selection lines that define the interior and background colors of a foreground object's transition area.
  • Pushpin and tweezer tools to access areas too small to select manually.
  • Inside and outside shadow tools for creating selection lines that define the inner and outer boundaries of shadows.
  • Inside and outside syringe tools.
  • Edge and shadow edge feather tools for creating edge transitions where the foreground and background colors are too similar to be differentiated.
