We are huge fans of this company (they made the DSLR Remote Control for the iPhone) and have packaged a solid group of programs that will make your digital darkroom work better, faster, stronger, (thanks Daft Punk) and easier.
(by the way, this plug-in suite works with most of the Adobe Photoshop versions, and software like Elements and Lightroom. Check here for more info.
Genuine Fractals 5 Print Pro can resize digital images over 1,000% with no loss of detail or sharpness; allows poster-sized prints to be made from almost any image. Hard to illustrate here, but it works.
Unlike with traditional Actions in Photoshop, with PhotoTools Professional Edition, you get a large preview of the effect before you apply it. You can combine multiple effects together and adjust the strength of each effect. You can even save combinations of effects as a preset for easier use in the future.
Use PhotoFrame 3.1 Professional Edition to create stunning border and edge effects right out of the darkroom. Select from thousands of edges, including authentic film and artistic mediums.
