Image Trends plugins updated for 64 bit working

Three useful image editing plugins


Image Trends plugins updated to 64bit

Three useful plug-ins from Image Trends have just been updated to 64 bit. (see end of article for update info and special offer for purchase)

ShineOff, PearlyWhites, and Fisheye-Hemi have all been updated with the following enhancements:

  • 64 bit support on both the Mac and Windows (inc. Aperture on Mac)
  • Faster image processing in both 32 and 64 bit environments
  • Reduced memory usage
  • Improved multi-core support

64 bit plug-in software updates

I’ve reviews of all three plug-ins: ShineOff, PearlyWhites, and Fisheye-Hemi

The one that I use the most often (Fisheye-Hemi) is the specialist one for processing images taken with a fish-eye lens.

It’s what has made the EF15mm lens a regular for some of my architectural, interior and industrial work. There are versions of the plugin that work best with different focal lengths and sensor sizes.

A quick example, showing me standing in our rather cramped print room with the new iPF8300

And next, the corrected version.

corrected version of image – note straight verticals

The correction is quite different from that in the photoshop lens correction adjustments.

I’m looking forward to seeing it with the new Canon EF8-15mm fisheye zoom [review]
