autoRetouch, a Stuttgart, Germany-based AI-powered image editing platform, raised €3.2m in seed funding.
The round was led by European apparel retailer Breuninger.
The company intends to use the funds to expand its team of data scientists and engineers from a five to sixteen person team, doubling down on its R&D focus while also starting to build initial customer traction.
Led by co-founder and CEO Alex Ciorapciu, autoRetouch uses AI to let users perform image editing operations, for example removing background or retouching skin. Editing with its AI enables any stakeholder (whether it’s the image editor, the retailer or brand) to get product images faster and easier while retaining full creative control.
All of autoRetouch’s features are designed for self-service, including the Ghost Mannequin feature, and are now directly available to fashion and lifestyle brands, retailers and creatives.
