Perfect Photo Suite 9 Premium Edition (Academic) (Electronic Software Delivery)

Please Note: Once the order has been processed, this product is nonreturnable.

Perfect Photo Suite 9 is up to two times faster than previous versions. We've done several speed tests for launching, switching modules, viewing RAW files, and applying presets. In all of our tests, Suite 9 outperformed every time.

Comprising seven distinct modules designed to handle all aspects of the photo editing process, this download version of onOne Software's Perfect Photo Suite 9 Premium Edition is a versatile solution for fine-tuning, enhancing, and managing image files. Featured in this ninth edition of the suite, Quick Mask, Smart Photos, a Crop + Level tool, and an updated Perfect Brush lend a sense of efficiency while QuickFlight processing speeds, along with batch renaming and updated labeling tools, help to quicken the file browsing process. Noise Reduction, a Lens Flare filter, and Auto Tone settings can be used to creatively enhance photographs while support for Retina displays and the ability to print within each module benefits exporting and showcasing your work. These features, coupled with seven distinct tool sets, combine to handle all aspects of the entire post-production process.

Each of the seven different modules-Effects, Resize, Layers, Enhance, Browse, B&W, and Portrait-is specifically intended to handle certain aspects of post-production, but collaborate together through common features strewn throughout the intuitive interface. Non-destructive editing tools and a layer-based working process encourage greater creativity, especially in regard to the vast network of filters, presets, and masking tools made available. Helping within the background of the suite, improved image processing along with updated browsing and image processing capabilities keep things moving, despite working with large or layer-rich files. This Premium Edition of the Perfect Photo Suite 9 can be used as both a standalone application or as a plug-in with compatible versions of Adobe Photoshop, Photoshop Lightroom, Photoshop Elements, or Apple Aperture. It is designed for use with either Mac or Windows operating systems.

Perfect Photo Suite 9

Smart Photos
Allowing you to revisit and re-edit photographs that have previously been saved and closed, the Smart Photo feature keeps all of an image's editing steps saved to permit fine-tuning of adjustments at a later date.

Quick Mask Tool
Offering the ability to quickly select and mask areas of an image, this intuitive tool allows you to simply brush over a portion of the area you wish to highlight and then will intelligently, and automatically, create a mask. Refinement tools can also be utilized to clean up selections and to eliminate halos or inconsistent lines throughout the composition.

Fast Image Processing
Image processing and file browsing has been accelerated with this suite, offering the ability to work with larger or more files in an efficient manner.

Noise Reduction
Helping to maintain faithful image details while removing distracting image noise, this tool can be used to selectively or globally reduce the amount of noise in a photograph.

Lens Flare Filter
This specific filter allows you to quickly and easily add the popular "shot into the sun" effect to imagery, in order to simulate dramatic, yet controlled lens flare. The amount of the effect can be controlled, and set to give you subtle effects or bold embellishments.

Crop + Level Tool
Helping to expedite the process of cropping imagery, a revised tool allows you to crop free-form, to a specific aspect ratio, or to automatically crop to common document sizes. Presets can also be saved and, in conjunction with the crop tool, a Straighten Tool can be used to maintain consistent, straight lines within a composition.

Perfect Brush
A revised Perfect Brush tool can be used in conjunction with any masking feature throughout the suite of applications, and is used to provide more natural results when adding in backgrounds to masked selections. This brush specifically helps to produce softer, cleaner lines between subjects and backgrounds for a more integrated look when compositing imagery, replacing portions of a scene, and working with semi-transparent objects like smoke, clouds, or hair.

Printing Options
Printing capabilities are now supported from any one of the seven editing modules within the Perfect Photo Suite 9.

Premium Edition
This Premium Edition of Perfect Photo Suite 9 contains all seven Perfect editing modules and can function as either standalone software or as a plug-in with compatible Adobe Photoshop or Apple Aperture applications. It is compatible with both Mac and Windows operating systems.

Photo Editing Modules

Perfect Effects 9
Customizable filters and hundreds of built-in presets avail a wide range of controls for adjusting the look of your imagery with ease. Some of the available preset looks include: Faded Matte - Red, Tilt Shift, Pastel Bliss, Washed Out Portrait, Textured Macro, Silver Sunset, Cold Shadow, Vintage Sun, Color Fade, and Color Pop. Alternatively, you can also select from a range of filters and combine them to develop your own customizable preset looks to apply to numerous photos.

Complementing the use of different filters and effects, a live preview function allows you to quickly see how the effects affect your imagery and to gain a greater perspective on the complete editing process. The Smart Photos feature, Quick Mask Tool, Lens Flare Filter, Perfect Brush tool, Noise Reduction capabilities, and the ability to print from within Effects are all also supported.

Perfect Resize 9
Employing patented Genuine Fractals technology, the Perfect Resize 9 module can intelligently enlarge photographs using fractal-based interpolation algorithms for maintained sharpness and detail. Able to operate in either an automated preset method or in fully manual modes, you are given the ability to define the desired output size, aspect ratio, and sharpness level for upsampling imagery from any type of camera.

When working with distinct output sizes, a variety of built-in preset print sizes help to cleanly crop, using the Crop + Level tool, and scale imagery in a single step. If outputting to canvas media, a Gallery Wrap feature can also be utilized to extend image margins to suit wrapping the final photograph around stretcher bars. For greater efficiency when working with large groups of images, batch processing affords you the ability to control size, resolution, file formats, name, location, and color space, and also offers you the ability to save two unique versions of an image at a time.

Perfect Layers 9
Designed to aid in blending photos and making quick, clean selections, the Perfect Layers 9 module revolves around a layer-based structure and is ideal for compositing photographs. Using layered selection methods, you can easily swap out and replace backgrounds and precisely mask off difficult areas, including hair, tree branches, veils, and glass.

This module is greatly benefitted by the Quick Mask, Crop + Level, and Perfect Brush tools, which all contribute to making seamless compositions. Additionally, a series of object removal tools are also available within this module, including the Retouch Brush, Clone Stamp, and Perfect Eraser. When replacing backgrounds, a host of available backgrounds, borders, and edges can be used, or you're free to use your own image files.

Perfect Enhance 9
An intuitive tool for quickly enhancing the brightness, contrast, white balance, vibrance, detail, or vignetting of an image, the Perfect Enhance 9 module allows for precise, or automated, control over the look of your photographs. There are four distinct tool sets available to adjust settings: Quick Fixes, which puts the most common adjustments in plain sight for automated corrections without any sliders; Color & Tone Adjustments, which comprises a system of sliders for manipulating brightness, contrast, detail, and color; Vignettes, which is dedicated to creating adjustable vignette effects in photos; and Sharpening, which features a series of sliders and output types to enhance the apparent sharpness of an image. Presets can be developed based on your most oft-used settings, and saved for future use. Additionally, an Auto Tone feature works to automate the complete enhancement process and is designed to deliver bright and clear photographs with minimal effort.

Smart Photos, Noise Reduction, and Crop + Level tools can all be used in conjunction with this module, as well as the ability to print directly from it and utilize the live preview feature.

Perfect Browse 9
Dedicated to the organizational end of the photo editing process, the Perfect Browse 9 module is based upon onOne's QuickFlight technology to optimize processing, browsing, rating, and sorting speeds for a more efficient overall workflow. A Fast Preview mode has specifically been developed to expedite the loading process of even the largest RAW image files, and works to cut down any lag time when previewing numerous files at a time. Additionally, enhanced rating and labeling capabilities allow you to assign stars, keywords, or labels to images' metadata, which is kept intact when working in other editing programs; which can easily be accessed directly from Perfect Browse.

Batch renaming and processing allow you to modify groups of photographs in a straightforward and intuitive manner, and, for more thorough editing of metadata, full capability of reading and writing EXIF, TIFF, IPTC, and XMP models and formats is also supported. Furthermore, image files can be accessed from within the program from any location, even when saved on networked drives or through cloud-based storage services.

Perfect B&W 9
For efficiently converting your image files to black & white, the Perfect B&W 9 module contains a host of preset filters and looks for your imagery, including Almost B&W, Rugged, Ruth, Basic Red Filter, Automagic, Paparazzi, and 32 Kodak Panatomic X, among others. A dedicated set of controls permits fine-tuning of image tone and color response, as well as the ability to add borders. Once you have created a perfected look, you can save it as a preset for use with subsequent files, too.

This module also makes use of the printing and live preview abilities afforded throughout the suite, as well as the Smart Photos, Noise Reduction, and Perfect Brush tools.

Perfect Portrait 9
Intended for retouching and enhancing portraits, the Perfect Portrait 9 module incorporates a host of tools designed to improve certain characteristics of imagery. A versatile skin retouching menu allows for automatic blemish reduction, skin smoothing, and shadow removal; all with the ability to adjust the amount of the effect using intuitive sliders. A comparative color correction feature utilizes a selected reference image in order to ensure consistent and correct skin tones, and dedicated tools can also be used to whiten the eyes and teeth of a subject.

From within the module, both printing and live preview functions are also supported.
