New features

Generative AI fill transformation (Beta)

Our new generative fill transformation uses AI for advanced image editing tasks. When you crop or resize, this tool uses generative AI to fill in any blank pixels, naturally matching them with the image. It can also restore any key elements accidentally cropped from the image.

Specify b_gen_fill with padding crop modes (c_pad, c_lpad, c_mpad, c_fill_pad) to see it in action.
