Shapiro Consulting Group Inc.
(SCGI) has released Asiva Shift+Gain Component, its third plug-in for Adobe Photoshop that leverages the same technology that powers SCGI’s standalone Asiva Photo product.
Asiva Shift+Gain Component enables Photoshop users to make selections of their images based on the huge, saturation and luminance values of a pixel — this enables you to perform color changes without needing to make a mask first, according to the developer.
The software also provides the ability to do filter roll-offs for a more natural look. It sports a built-in color sampler tool. Like the other Asiva plug-ins available, Asiva Shift+Gain Component features 16-bit per component internal processing (even on 8-bit images).
Asiva Shift+Gain Component runs on Mac OS X and Mac OS 9.x (as well as various versions of Windows). It has been tested with Adobe Photoshop 5.5 – 7.0. It retails for US$69. Visit the Web site for more info or a trial version.
