Movavi Picverse: Key Features
Movavi Picverse Review: User Interface
Since 2004, Movavi has developed reliable apps like Movavi Video Suite that is easy-to-use and effective to inspire creativity. They have made processing, creating, and sharing your media content fun and fulfilling!
The keyword here being 'easy' they live by this principle. Movavi Picverse is a very simple-to-use app with a very intuitive interface. All the tools are easy to find on the vertical toolbar to the right & easy to use for a user of any skill level. Also, you can see the 'Before-After' photo comparison at every step. Hence, you can see how the editing has turned out and helps you choose the path further.
All the changes can be easily reverted to the start through the Undo button on the top.
Movavi Picverse Review: Functionality
The first tool on the right-hand navigation bar is 'Adjust.' It holds some key tools inside to adjust some vital photo parameters.
It has six tools that help you select a particular object or area on your photo. It includes a Selection Brush that can freely select objects, a Magic Wand, a Polygonal Marquee tool to select objects with an outline, and an Eraser that de-selects areas on the photo. Hence, you can apply effects specific to the selected area only.
Through the AI adjust toolbar, you can increase HDR Lighting and use AI to enhance the photo's general parameters. Also, you can reduce noise on the photo by using the Denoise function. However, you have to keep in mind that you can apply only one of the adjustments. For example, If you adjust the AI for HDR lightning, the Enhance and Denoise bars will automatically reduce to zero.
If you apply any of the settings from the sections below, the AI adjust option will disable automatically. Hence, it would be best if you only used the AI option for quick enhancements.
The light function has options where you can control the exposure, brightness/contrast, highlights/shadows of your photograph.
Through the color bar, you get options to control the color temperature, tint, and hue of your photograph. Further, you can also increase or decrease saturation and vibrancy on your photo. It will take some trials for you to hit the sweet spot.
Under details, you can increase photo detail or sharpness and add a blur if required. Also, remember to check the Before-After comparison to understand the changes.
It is a fantastic tool that majorly works with an AI engine. The Smart Eraser is not your normal background eraser. It can erase out an object from your photo and fill up the void space with seamless background from behind that object.
Imagine someone photobombing your perfect beach picture; yes, now you can erase him out from the picture without anyone knowing about it, ever.!!
With my Movavi Picverse review sample photo, I had to make some adjustments. Once I removed the object by selecting it, the AI did a good job. However, after the removal of the object, the stitching was not perfect. Hence, I had to use the Stamp Tool to clone and fix the photo further. With some work from my end, I completely removed the object and mended the background to look flawless.
Hence, Movavi Picverse needs more improvements in the Smart Eraser section when the object is complicated.
Insert Image (Picture Overlay)
This feature lets you combine and overlay pictures to create a new picture. To use this feature, click on the 'Insert image' tab from the right-hand navigation bar. Next, click on the 'Paste an Image' button and then choose a picture, and click Open. The image appears on top of the background picture. Using the Image Settings, you can change the Opacity, Outline Width, make Rounded corners of the image, and much more.
The change background is a convenient utility for many editors. It also benefits people who frequently work with portrait photography and frequently change their models' backgrounds after the photoshoot.
With this tool, you can change your subject's background in 3 steps. Select the subject with selection tools or with auto-select, further enhance the edges if required with a mask brush and replace the background with a solid color, transparent background, or any custom background as required. In my Movavi Picverse review sample, I used this feature to duplicate an object on the same photo.
This tab hosts some of the favorite tools for fashion photographers and portrait photographers alike.
The Skin tab hosts options like Skin smoothening, Wrinkle removal, Blemish removal, or Shine removal. It goes a step beyond by even adding a Foundation to your model's face, including a Blush. This set of tools is handy to touch up your photographs after the photoshoot and without having to learn a lot of complex tools and software.
Also, there are elaborate options to correct or retouch your model's eyes, lips, teeth whitening, and even hair color. In the duration of my Movavi Picverse review, it took some time for me to master the retouch section completely. Hence, it would be best if you had some patience while handling this section.
Also, you get options to change the Eye color, add Mascara, Eye shadow, and an Eyebrow pencil on your model's face.
Pro Tip: Try to zoom in to the photo section where you want to apply the effects. Zooming in helps to work with precision.
The effects tab has filters that you can apply to your photos to change the look and feel. There are options to choose from Artistic, Vignettes, Popular, Retro, Disco, and more. There are 100+ filters to choose from.
Crop & Rotate
Here you can crop the photo to your desired size or even in a fixed standard aspect ratio. There is even an option to rotate the photo and straighten out the photo.
Here you can resize a photo precisely in terms of pixels, percentage, centimeters & inches. Besides, there is an option of AI enlargement, where AI decides the size of the photo based on an algorithm.
The text option helps you write on your photos in different ways. Here you can choose designs for your text colors, frames and frame types, background colors, and more. You will find different fonts, font colors, font sizes, and orientations.
Movavi Picverse Review: How Good is the Support?
Though the app is fairly simple to use across users of all levels, there might be times you might require support. Reaching out to support is very easy and can be done in 3 ways.
Within the app, you find the help menu, which has 3 options:
If you have an issue beyond this, you can also raise a support ticket on this page that the Movavi team will answer. During my Movavi Picverse review, I got in touch with their chat support, and it was quick and efficient. However, the email support took nearly 24 hours to respond to my queries.

Is Movavi Picverse Worth your Money?
At the end of this Movavi Picverse review, considering all features, I definitely recommend it. Picverse is good for you if you require professional-level photo editing and are short on time, skillset and budget.
The kind of features that Picverse offers at such a price point makes it a completely 'must-have' tool and definitely worth your money. However, I will also like to see more improvements to the Picverse AI.
