onOne Software Announces Perfect Photo Suite 8.5 Photo Editor for Adobe Lightroom, Adobe Photoshop, Apple Aperture, and Standalone Use

Update Adds Super-Fast Photo Browsing, More File-Management Options, and Improvements to the Perfect Eraser and Masking Bug Tools

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwired - April 22, 2014) - onOne Software, Inc®., the leading developer of innovative digital photography solutions, today announced Perfect Photo Suite 8.5, a new version of its full-featured photo editor, which works as a plug-in with Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, and Apple Aperture, as well as a standalone app. Version 8.5 includes speed and productivity enhancements to the Perfect Photo Suite's Browse module, improved performance with the Perfect Eraser tool, and enhanced masking support in Perfect Effects and Perfect Layers.

"By speeding up photo browsing and making improvements to our Perfect Eraser and Masking Bug tools, Perfect Photo Suite 8.5 showcases our continued commitment to providing the best digital editing experience for photographers, no matter which app is at the center of their workflow," said Craig Keudell, president of onOne Software.

The updated Browse module will offer super-fast thumbnail and preview viewing and new file-management features for organizing photos. Enhancements to the Perfect Eraser -- found in both Perfect Layers and Perfect Enhance -- will make it easier for photographers to remove objects set on difficult gradient backgrounds. Also in Version 8.5 will be the capability to create more complex masks by using multiple Masking Bugs on a layer. Other bug fixes and performance enhancements will also be part of the 8.5 release.

Perfect Photo Suite 8.5 will be available as a free update to all owners of Perfect Photo Suite 8. It supports Photoshop CC, CS6, and CS5; Lightroom 5 and 4; Photoshop Elements 12, 11 and 10; and Apple Aperture 3.

onOne's Perfect Photo Suite includes eight powerful, integrated applications, each one targeted to a specific photo-processing task:

  • Perfect Effects. The richest and most versatile photo-stylization tool available on the market today. It includes an extensive library of one-click presets, fully customizable and adjustable effects and powerful masking tools, all of which help make your photos pop.
  • Perfect Enhance. Offers essential tools for basic enhancements, including brightness, contrast, sharpening and color cast removal. Enhance also has retouching features like the Perfect Eraser and a Clone tool, which makes it easy to remove objects, fix dust spots and repair flaws in a photo.
  • Perfect B&W. Create stunning photos that recreate the timeless look created by the masters of black and white photography. Perfect B&W adds dramatic and elegant looks to photos, letting you easily create the many moods black and white photography can evoke, resulting in beautiful, one-of-a-kind photos.
  • Perfect Portrait. Offers simple, yet powerful, portrait retouching, with automated feature detection and enhancement tools to smooth skin, remove blemishes, brighten eyes and teeth, and correct skin color. Fast processing speeds also allow photographers to retouch images quickly for simply stunning portraits.
  • Perfect Mask. Creates high-quality masks quickly and easily with automated functionality and powerful tools that make selecting subjects and isolating backgrounds for removal extraordinarily accurate.
  • Perfect Layers. Gives photographers the ability to combine images and extend their photo-editing options in a layered file workflow without Photoshop. Photographers can create and edit multi-layered files with Perfect Layers directly from Lightroom, Aperture or when using the Perfect Photo Suite as a standalone application. Also included are blending modes, textures, borders, PNG file support, and the powerful edge-detecting Perfect Brush.
  • Perfect Resize. Still the industry standard for photo enlargement. It is renowned across the photographic and printing industries for its ability to increase image size well over 1000% without the loss of sharpness or detail that is normally expected. Proven Genuine Fractals technology has been applied to algorithms that optimize the clarity and detail of different photo types, including mobile snapshots.
  • Perfect Browse. Quickly get to the photos you want to edit wherever they're stored -- whether they're on your computer, network, or on a cloud-based storage service. Now includes one of the fastest previews available for browsing photos. Also great for viewing photos side-by-side in a thumbnail grid or in a larger, more detailed view along with important metadata and navigate through them with intuitive keyboard shortcuts.

In addition, all Perfect Photo Suite 8 customers are automatically enrolled in the onOne Loyalty Rewards program. Each month customers receive free product add-ons such as presets, textures, backgrounds, ebooks, and other creative assets to help expand their photo editing arsenals and also help get the most from onOne products.

New users may purchase the Premium Edition for $179.95 or the Lightroom & Aperture Edition for only $99.95. The Standard Edition, a standalone application, is available for $79.95.
