Kodak Professional Image Enhancement Plug-in Software Review

Im of the opinion that if there is some tool that will allow me to do a task more easily and quickly, whilst at the same time producing a better result then Im all for it. So it is with digital photography, there are so many tasks that require a level of skill and familiarity with the software that many photographers cannot justify or are not prepared to achieve. Hence a good plug-in designed for a specific task can be much easier and save much more time than using the long method in Photoshop.

The suite of Kodak image enhancement plug-ins contains 4 separate programs each designed to do a specific task. Clearly they are not all aimed at the same individual digital photographer. All except the Airbrush Plug-in, No 3 below, are available in a Pro and standard version. Each can be obtained separately from www.asf.com

The 4 plug-ins as described on the site, are:-
The DIGITAL SHO Plug-In, for ADOBE PHOTOSHOP and compatible programs, automatically reveals image details hidden in shadow areas
The DIGITAL GEM Plug-Ins, for ADOBE PHOTOSHOP and compatible programs, automatically reduces and manages noise and grain in digital images without causing excessive softening or blurring.
The DIGITAL GEM Airbrush Professional Plug-In, for ADOBE PHOTOSHOP and compatible programs, automatically smoothes skin and other surfaces of digital images without softening or blurring important details like eyelashes, eyebrows, or hair.
The DIGITAL ROC Plug-Ins, for ADOBE PHOTOSHOP and compatible programs, automatically correct, restore, and balance the color of digital images.

All the plug-ins install easily and when in Photoshop they are readily available in the Filter menu.
