PRESS RELEASE: Paravue Announces New Masking Tool for Adobe Photoshop CS3
Cutout objects with the click of a mouse
OAKLAND, Calif. -- Paravue Inc., today announced Turbo Mask, an image masking tool designed for graphic and web designers, photographers and motion graphic artists that work with Adobe Photoshop CS and Photoshop CS Extended. Most image masking tools rely on skill to get the desired results. Turbo Mask works like human eyes to pick out the important subject in an image. Leveraging the Paravue technology, Turbo Mask understands images like people do and can isolate subjects and remove them from backgrounds accurately -- often with just one click. With Turbo Mask, digital artists can focus more on creativity and less on time-consuming cutouts.
• Watch a demo at the Paravue Booth 105 at Photoshop World in Boston, MA from April 4-5.

Paravue offers a radical new approach to solving one of the most vexing problems in the imaging world. Turbo Mask delivers relevant information as a mask to Photoshop where the image can be edited. With Turbo Mask, it is frequently no longer necessary to spend long, tedious hours using the traditional hand drawn method of other masking tools.
"Paravue has found a way to funnel their intellectual process for image segmentation into an easy-to-use tool for creative people like me," said Nick Philip of Imaginary Foundation, "Masking an image used to take me 15 minutes per shot, but with Turbo Mask, I get high-quality results in a fraction of the time."
