onOne Software Announces Availability of Free and Premium Editions of Perfect Effects 4

(Cision (English) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) New editions of Perfect Effects 4 offer photographers of all skill levels easy ways to enhance, stylize, and create images with impact Portland, OR – December 3, 2012 – onOne Software, Inc (, a leading developer of innovative, time-saving solutions for professional, advanced amateur, and hobbyist photographers, announced the availability of Perfect Effects 4 Premium Edition and Perfect Effects 4 Free Edition. Both software programs offer a library of photographic effects and powerful tools for image enhancement and creative stylization. Each may be used as a standalone application, as an external editor for Apple Aperture, Adobe Lightroom, or as a Photoshop plug-in.

Perfect Effects 4 Premium Edition provides photographers with a robust library of more than 400 photographic effects that instantly add professional looks to photos. Effects are sorted into more than 40 categories, such as HDR, Movie Looks, and Vintage. Also included are effects that recreate the look of film and darkroom techniques, add glows, vignettes, and borders, and correct common photography problems. Effects may be added with a single click or combined to create unique looks.

Perfect Effects 4 Free Edition includes 70 photographic effects found in the Premium Edition, while maintaining core functionality and usage without restrictions of a traditional 30-day timed trial, or the addition of watermarks to images.

A flexible new browser with keyword search functionality and the ability to mark effects and presets as Favorites are new to both editions of Perfect Effects 4. They both also include new blending modes, paint-in brush effects, and a powerful, edge-detecting Perfect Brush that smoothly applies or removes adjustments to specific areas without going “outside the lines.” “We’re excited to offer both of these editions of the new Perfect Effects 4,” said Craig Keudell, president of onOne Software. “Many of the new additions and improvements were based on customer feedback. With these new versions, we believe that we now offer a vastly improved tool that is easy to use and inspires creativity.” Key benefits of Perfect Effects 4 Premium and Free Editions: Expanded! Library of Professional-grade, Photographic Effects: Perfect Effects 4 offers more than 400 photographic effects that can be used individually or combined, providing photographers with many options to achieve their photographic vision. The library includes effects to recreate the look of HDR, black and white, cross processing, and more. Perfect Effects 4 Free includes more than 70 effects.

Redesigned! User Interface: A new intuitive interface allows for easy navigation of your workspace. A darker color scheme gives your image the primary focus and all essential tools are readily available. The Effects Library and easy-to-use brushes are located on the left side of your workspace to help you achieve instant, professional results. Manual controls for fine-tuning are located on the right to help you create the exact look you want.

New! Browser & Keyword Search: Effects may be found quickly with the updated browser and new search functionality. Expandable column views allow for instant previews of how effects will look on an image before they are applied.

New! Favorites: Effect and presets, including ones that you have personally created, may be flagged and saved in a Favorites folder. This keeps all the styles you use most often close at hand and readily available for use.

New! Paint-In Effect Brushes: With simple brush strokes, a number of effects may be applied on specific areas of your image. You can make areas darker, lighter, warmer, or cooler. You can also add detail, glow, and more.

Masking Controls: The masking tools in Perfect Effect 4 offer photographers the greatest amount of control for where effects are applied. The Masking Brush can be used to hide or reveal an effect in a specific area of the image. The Masking Bug is an elegant, adjustable gradient mask tool that can be used to create vignettes and graduated filter looks.

New! Perfect Brush: Achieve precise, edge-detected masking with the new Perfect Brush. It will smoothly apply or remove adjustments to the specific areas being worked on without going “outside the lines.” The Perfect Brush may be used with the Paint-In Effect Brushes or the Masking Brush.

Effect Stacking: Effects can be combined and stacked on top of each other, resulting in unique looks, just like stacking filters on a camera lens. The strength and blending of each effect can be controlled, giving photographers the same functionality as Photoshop’s opacity and blending modes.

New! Blending Modes: More Blending Modes have been included to allow the creation of highly stylized looks in Perfect Effects 4. By changing the Blending Modes, you can control brightness, contrast, and color of the image to dramatically alter its appearance. Perfect Effects 4 now includes more than a dozen Blending Modes including Multiple, Overlay, Soft Light, Difference, and more.

Supports Any Workflow: Perfect Effects 4 Premium and Free Editions integrate seamlessly into a photographer’s workflow of choice. It works as a plug-in to both Photoshop and Photoshop Elements, as an external editor for Lightroom or Aperture, or may be used as a standalone application.
