Alien Skin BlowUp 220.127.116.116:
Alien Skin Blow Up can enlarge your images in Photoshop and Photoshop Elements with better results and with more functionality than competing products. The interface is straightforward and easy to use, but you might have a hard time justifying the cost against the printed results unless you do a large volume of extreme enlargements such as poster size prints and larger. Blow Up 2 s new features were primarily based on user feedback, keeping Blow Up 2 ahead of the competition in image enlargement software.
Supports high-bit images for enlarging RAW and HDR (high dynamic range) images.
Offers sharpening and grain simulation to improve details.
New dedicated batch processing is easier than using Photoshop actions to enlarge multiple images.
Very easy to use.
Will work in Windows 64-bit Photoshop CS5.
Blow Up can enlarge photos to extreme print sizes with better results than Photoshop s bicubic interpolation.
Detects edges and resizes using a method similar to vector scaling to avoid undesirable stair-step or halo artifacts.
Supports all image modes--RGB, Grayscale, Lab, Duotone, and CMYK. Supports standard 8-bit, 16-bit RAW, and 32-bit HDR images.
Works with Photoshop CS2 or Photoshop Elements 5 (Win) or later.
Layered files can be resized without flattening. Resize as a new image option allows non-destructive enlargements.
Includes a specialized sharpening method for enlargements, designed to improve contrast along sharp edges.
Can apply simulated film grain to improve the appearance of extreme enlargements.
Blow Up can resize up to the limit of Photoshop s maximum image dimensions--300,000 pixels per side.
Improved speed and image quality, more sharpening control, a JPEG cleaner option, crop and rotate tools, presets.
Multi-threaded for better performance on multi-core and multi-processor systems. Native 64-bit in Windows Photoshop CS5.
Alien Skin Exposure 18.104.22.1685:
Alien Skin has announced a new release of its Exposure 3 plugin for Adobe Photoshop, which allows photographers to replicate the look of a wide range of films or photographic processes, as well as a providing a variety of other special effects.
Alien Skin Exposure 3 is available immediately, and works on either the Windows platforms with Adobe Photoshop CS3 to CS5, Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2 or 3, Adobe Photoshop Elements 7 or 8, and Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo X3. Exposure 3 works as a 64-bit plugin on both platforms, providing access to more memory.
This, coupled with a rewritten user interface, has brought a significant increase in speed. Preview rendering using Photoshop CS5 64-bit is said to be 30% faster on the Windows platform.
Other changes in the user interface compared to the previous release include the ability to use the mouse wheel to quickly adjust zoom by arbitrary amounts, a drag-and-drop function that lets users duplicate a factory preset as a user preset, and the ability to add text descriptions to user presets. These comments appear as a tooltip when you hover over the preset, and some factory presets now include descriptions by default. Beyond the user interface, Alien Skin has also greatly expanded the range of presets on offer, with new categories including Cinematography and Lo-Fi allowing users to mimic the look of movies or toy cameras, for a total of over 500 factory presets.
The most significant new features in Exposure 3 are:
64-bit support for Photoshop CS5 on both Macintosh and Windows
Tight Lightroom integration that does not require Photoshop
Aging effects and vintage films such as Technicolor and old Kodachrome
Simulation of Lo-Fi toy camera photography
Hundreds of new settings in all categories, including more films, color toning, and aging
User interface improvements such as a much faster preview and hover help
A new Dust and Scratches feature enhances the ability to give photos the impression of age. Dust and scratch size and quantity can be adjusted, and positioning can be repeatedly randomized until you re happy with the effect. There s also a vignetting function with variable color, shape, and feather, and blur can also be vignetted so that image corners show less detail than the center of the frame. Further vintage films such as Autochrome, early Kodachrome, and Technicolor have been added, and Exposure 3 can also create unusual coloring reminiscent of cross-processed film.
Alien Skin Exposure 3 groups presets into two types -- either Black & White, or Color -- and these are accessed as separate plugins for Photoshop users. In Photoshop Lightroom, Exposure 3 appears as an external editor which can edit only sRGB TIFF files, which Lightroom automatically generates from Raw or JPEG files as needed. The user is prompted whether they want a Black & White filter or a Color one, when Exposure 3 is called by Lightroom. Batch processing is possible for Lightroom users, and when each image in the queue is edited, you re prompted whether to apply changes and then adjust the settings again for the next picture, or to apply the same changes to all photos in the queue.
