Plug-In Suite 4.5 includes full versions of the following onOne Software products:
Genuine Fractals 6 Professional Edition can resize digital images over 1000% with no loss of detail or sharpness. Version 6 now includes texture presets, a gallery wrap feature, batch processing, tiling for small format printers, and support for Lightroom 2 and Aperture 2.1.
PhotoTools 2 Professional Edition is a flexible yet powerful Photoshop plug-in that utilizes the power of Photoshop Actions to provide a complete library of effects created by Kevin Kubota and Jack Davis. These effects may be previewed, stacked and blended together just like filters over a camera lens and its built-in batch processing engine helps improve productivity. Version 2 now includes a new effects library, over 120 new effects, masking capabilities and support for Lightroom 2 and Aperture 2.1.
PhotoFrame 4 Professional Edition can be used to create stunning border and edge effects that look like they came out of the darkroom. Users can select from over a thousand edges, including authentic film and artistic mediums. Version 4 now includes a new frame library, improved library management options, new content, output options, and integration with Lightroom 2 and Aperture 2.1.
Mask Pro 4.1 easily creates high-quality masks and selections even from tough subjects like hair, glass, smoke and bubbles, making it easy to place a subject in a new background.
PhotoTune 2.2 provides professional quality color correction in an easy-to-use interface. PhotoTune 2.2 includes ColorTune for general color correction and SkinTune for color correcting skin tones accurately.
FocalPoint 1.0 simulates selective focus or tilt-shift lenses, helping photographers blur and/or vignette an image to focus a viewer's attention.
