Perfectly Clear Plug-ins 2.0 for Photoshop and Lightroom has been upgraded. Calgary-based Athentech says it has re-engineered the software’s algorithms to deliver nearly twice the speed, the basis for what it describes as its “fastest, most comprehensive, most powerful suite of corrections to date.”
Features include most powerful auto correction yet, with the new algorithms bringing out more details in shadows and highlights, and improving skin tones; a new noise engine which removes noise even more accurately; and full resolution zoom which lets you quickly zero-in with incredible clarity.
Other changes: Opacity slider lets you blend your before and after images; Split View gives you more ways to see the correction; Import / Export presets let you share presets; a new preset panel displays powerful presets visually; and next-generation Beautify gives you 10 ways to improve people pictures.
Those 10 Beautify features:
1 Perfectly Smooth reduces wrinkles and smooths skin for a flawless complexion.
2 Blemish Removal eliminates pimples, blemishes, and other imperfections.
3 Shine Removal reduces excessive shininess of oily skin, providing flawless skin generally attained by using foundation or powder.
4 Skin Tone removes excess infrared captured by cameras.
5 Eye Enhance brightens and brings out the details in eyes.
6 Eye Enlarge makes eyes larger and more expressive.
7 Dark Circle Removal reduces dark eye circles that appear underneath the eyes because of fatigue or unflattering light.
8 Catchlight adds sparkle to the eyes.
9 Teeth Whitening whitens teeth.
10 Face Slimming tones face shape for a more slender and youthful appearance.
