Save your Punch Shots

One of the nice things about the app is that it lets you save several "Punch Shots" for use later. This way, you can even paste multiple Punch Shots onto a single background.

Variety of photo options

For backgrounds for your Punch Shots, Photo Punch lets you choose from your gallery, take a new photo, or even search the Web for images using the built-in search tool.

Photo Punch's autoselection

Photo Punch's auto-selection works best when your foreground item is clearly differentiated from its background. Here, you can see an accurate selection.

Selection troubles

Here, you can see Photo Punch having some trouble differentiating a dark-colored shoe from the carpet. What's more, the unpredictable manual adjustment tool was unable to capture the shoe as well.
