Edit 1.1 Adds More than 4,000 Effects to Apple Aperture

Human Software is updating its plug-in Edit for Apple Aperture to version 1.1 for Mac OS Leopard and Apple Aperture.


New in Version 1.1 : Curves

The current version of Aperture features color correction through levels and histogram. Edit v1.1 introduces a powerful set of curves so that you can work and adjust your channels in a snap. Edit Curves for Aperture is very easy to use and enables perfect color correction in a very intuitive manner. The Curves module is available for purchase separately at a price of $29.95.

Powerful Image DeNoising

Many digital images especially those taken at higher ISO sensitivities show a “Noise” that affects the quality of the picture. Many cameras increase the sensitivity when shooting in “Action” or “Night” modes. Also, cameras that provide anti-shake using electronics (instead of an image stabilizing lens or a device to stabilize the sensor) will boost sensitivity in order to allow a quicker shutter speed. Edit AutoDeNoise for Aperture is there to reduce this digital noise. It is very easy to use, very affordable and appeal to a wide range of users.

Image ReFocusing

How often are you getting a picture slightly blurred because the subject has moved! After any image manipulation you are doing, the image is getting a little more blurred.
Edit AutoFocus for Aperture uses powerful mathematical algorithms to refocus the image. AutoFocus reverses the formula by which the image got blurred… this technology gives you AS MUCH of the original “in focus” image as possible. AutoFocus uses a very powerful deconvolution tool that will reclaim the data that has been spread out.

Image Beautifier

Edit AutoSmooth for Aperture gives users a quick and powerful way of smoothing skin and other surfaces without blurring or affecting other details or faces characteristic AutoSmooth enables users to automatically achieve meticulous airbrush and retouching effects without tedious, time-consuming masking and manual softening. With AutoSmooth not only you will smoothen skin and get a glamorous look but you will save hours of retouching work while keeping blends and details in a way impossible to achieve manually.

Correct Lens Distortion

Edit PhotoFixlens for Aperture corrects barreling and pin-cushioning lens distortion produced by zoom and wide-angle lenses. This tool is especially handy for digital cameras! The effect can be applied on one or multiple images without leaving Apple Aperture

Grid Distortion

Edit Grids for Aperture lets you create and use grids for all kind of distortion just on top of your images. Very handy to reverse perspective deformation. But all kind of distortion can be achieved thanks to the double grid mecanism. The most powerful grid distortion on the market today.

Frame or Edge your images right inside Aperture

Edit MagicFrames for Aperture features more than 1700 frames/edges in one easy super powerful dialog box so you can frame your photos to your heart delight. Again super powerful and fun to use. The frame might be apply on one or a set of images.

Add Classy Frames inside Aperture

Edit ClassicFrames for Aperture offers more than 100 frames similar to what you would find in an home, an office or even a museum. Perfect for portrait photographers.

Edit Fractals for Aperture offers a library of fractals. This module provides creative look for images. Fractalian lights can be generated and blended to all photos.

Change Surfaces

Edit Surfaces for Aperture offers 300 different surfaces. Those surfaces can be instantly previewed on your photo. If the full Aperture bundle is purchased effect might be combined in one single edit.

The Toolbox

Last but not least the Edit Toolbox for Aperture. A PowerHouse by itself. 50 powerful blocks like ‘legos’ can be combined together playing with masks and channels to create any effect you can imagine. Those effects can be saved and recall later on. Among the basic blocks you will find a BW conversion tool, a film grain, a channel mixer, but also an octoposterizer, blur tools, mosaic, deinterlace and much much more. A library os 150 advanced effects using those basic blocks feature Depth of Field, Glow effects, different Kodak/Fui films simulation, Tungsten, polarizer, infrareds etc etc…
