onOne Software has announced a new version of its full-featured photo editor, which works as a plug-in with Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, and Apple Aperture, as well as a standalone app.
The new Perfect Photo Suite 8.5 includes speed and productivity enhancements to the Perfect Photo Suite’s Browse module, improved performance with the Perfect Eraser tool and enhanced masking support in Perfect Effects and Perfect Layers.
The updated Browse module will offer quicker thumbnail and preview viewing and new file-management features for organising photos. Enhancements to the Perfect Eraser will make it easier for photographers to remove objects set on difficult gradient backgrounds and also available in version 8.5 will be the capability to create more complex masks by using multiple Masking Bugs on a layer. Other bug fixes and performance enhancements will also be part of the 8.5 release.
Perfect Photo Suite 8.5 will be available in mid-May 2014 and existing owners of Perfect Photo Suite 8 are eligible for a free update. New users may purchase the Premium Edition for $179.95 or the Lightroom & Aperture Edition for only $99.95. The Standard Edition, a standalone application, is available for $79.95. Owners of earlier versions of the Perfect Photo Suite can upgrade to the Premium Edition for $99.95 or the Lightroom & Aperture Edition for $79.95.
