Applied Science Fiction today announced the release of two new software plug-ins for Adobe Photoshop and most other applications that support Photoshop’s plug-in format: Digital ROC and Digital SHO. The initial release of the plug-ins are Windows-compatible, but the company explained that Mac versions are expected to be released soon.
Digital ROC provides automatic color restoration, while Digital SHO automatically reveals details in dark image areas on any digital image file, according to Applied Science Fiction.
Applied Science Fiction president and CEO Dan Sullivan explained that the new plug-ins enable users to produce the kids of pictures they actually expected. “Regardless of the image source, whether scanners, digital cameras, the Internet or CDs, Applied Science Fiction’s easy-to-use software plug-ins offer convenience and versatility for anyone wishing to improve their pictures. Our plug-ins are also affordable tools for restoring the many memories that consumers have captured and stored in prints, negatives, slides and digital files,” said Sullivan.
Free trial versions of both plug-ins are available for download from Applied Science Fiction’s Web site. The trial versions apply digital watermarks to images; to disable them, users can purchase a software key for US$49.95 per plug-in. CD-ROM versions are also available for plug-ins.
In related news, Applied Science Fiction also announced that its Digital ICE technology is now integrated into select film and high-speed scanners from UMAX and Kodak.
Applied Science Fiction is exhibiting at this week’s Seybold Seminars conference and trade show at the Jacob K. Javits Center in New York City. Look for them at booth 449.
