What pieces of clothing are supported?

Most common pieces of clothing are supported. For example: pants, shorts, dresses, t-shirts, jackets, pullovers, and underwear.

Can I download the image without the watermark?

Will I be able to download a PSD?

Yes, when we release the product, you’ll be able to download a fully layered PSD file.

How much will this cost?

We’re still in the evaluation phase. The final pricing will be announced for the beta launch.

When will it be available as a product in autoRetouch?

We’re looking forward to releasing a beta version around February 2021.
