About Topaz Labs ReMask 3

A Masking Tool Designed for Simplicity and Ease of Use

Topaz ReMask offers you the easiest way to isolate objects and remove unwanted backgrounds from images. Like a pair of digital scissors, ReMask 3 allows you to easily separate a subject from its background by quickly defining the edges of the element to be masked / cutout.

  • Quickly remove unwanted backgrounds.
  • Easily extract intricate image details like hair and fur.
  • Isolate areas for selective adjustments or bokeh effect.
  • Create multiple cutouts for unique compositions.
  • Maintain transparency in hard-to-mask objects like veils and hair.


  • Green tells Topaz ReMask what to keep in the image for sure. ReMask then compares these areas with the original image and can accurately determine the nature of the “desired” areas based on many image characteristics.
  • Red tells Topaz ReMask what to remove in the image for sure. ReMask then determines the nature of the “undesired” areas using this information.
  • Blue tells Topaz ReMask which parts of the image to process. ReMask extrapolates the data from the green and red parts of the image to figure out the blue parts with a high degree of accuracy.

I have written many times before about Topaz Labs Plugins.  They are very powerful, fast and fun Photoshop plugins.  They also work with Lightroom, Aperture and iPhone using Fusion Express.
