PixelGenius Releases Free Photoshop CS2 compatible updates to their Plug-ins

PixelGenius, the makers of the PhotoKit™ series of Adobe® Photoshop® productivity and workflow plug-ins, announces free updates to PhotoKit, PhotoKit Color and PhotoKit Sharpener for full Adobe Photoshop CS2 compatibility.

PhotoKit is a photographer’s plug-in toolkit comprising 141 effects that offer accurate digital replications of analog photographic effects. PhotoKit’s image enhancements and adjustments are designed to work in a way familiar to photographers. A simple dialog calls up the PhotoKit tool sets, where you can easily select the desired image effect, and let PhotoKit do the work and greatly improve your digital photography workflow.

“Every once in a while, some gadget comes along to make life a little easier. PhotoKit is just that kind of gadget. . .”–Bob Rose, Rangefinder Magazine

PhotoKit Color provides a comprehensive suite of effects that let you recreate creative effects like black and white split toning and cross processing. All these effects are applied as separate layers so the user can make further variations, adapting each effect to suit their own tastes. But that’s not all! With PhotoKit Color, you can enhance specific colors in your photographs. You can make skin tones less red or lighter. With the Blue Enhance effect you can darken a blue sky and enhance the cloud contrast. And with the RSA Gray Balance set, you can automatically remove color-casts from almost any type of image.

“. . .it is a huge time saver (PhotoKit Color) and does the job that us mere mortals would never be able to achieve by ourselves. . .making the humble enthusiast look like a real pixel genius.” –Jamie Harrison, What Digital Camera

PhotoKit Sharpener provides a complete image “Sharpening Workflow”. From capture to output, PhotoKit Sharpener intelligently produces the optimum sharpness on any image, from any source, reproduced on any output device. But PhotoKit Sharpener also provides the creative controls to address the requirements of individual images and the individual tastes of users.

“In my opinion, the $99 that Pixel Genius is asking for Photokit Sharpener is the best hundred bucks that you’ll ever spend when it comes to improving the quality of your prints. Nothing else that I’ve yet seen even comes close.” –Michael Reichmann, Luminous Landscape
