Imagenomic Releases Realgrain 2 Image Effects Software
64-Bit Compatibility, New Preset Manager and History Control Across Pro Plugin Suite
Create Ideal Workflow Software Set for Image Correction and Enhancement
Plugin Suite Now Compatible with Adobe Photoshop
Creative Cloud and Apple Aperture
York - August 29, 2013 - Imagenomic, an independent software vendor
specializing in digital imagery enhancement solutions, has announced the
release of its Realgrain 2 image effects software plugin. Realgrain 2 is a finishing plugin for
achieving inimitable black-and-white conversion, toning, colorizing and
darkroom effects. It simulates the grain patterns, color, and tonal range of
conventional silver halide films, as well as a variety of scan resolutions to convey
a truly film-like image effect.
The software is now 64-bit compatible for Mac and
Windows and works with Adobe Photoshop Creative Cloud, CS5/CS6 and Adobe
Photoshop Elements 11 as well as Apple Aperture. In addition,
Realgrain 2 incorporates an improved multi-core support, which provides
processing speeds up to four times the speed of its predecessor. A new
Preset Manager now allows photographers to create an unlimited number of
presets with multiple categories, and a place to make special notations about
settings. The plugin comes with a number of pre-defined effect presets as
well as a library of 25 color and 20 black-and-white film presets. The
software's new History Control also allows an unlimited number of history steps
for fine-tuning, precise settings, and lots of experimenting to find the
perfect look without losing previous steps.
"Realgrain addresses the 'last-mile' of the
workflow, a critical and final stage in making the photograph. If you are
looking for a superior black-and-white conversion, toning and color effects or
long for the darkroom age to achieve the soft, warm graininess of film, then
Realgrain 2 is the plugin for you," explains Art Ghazaryan, Co-CEO and COO
of Imagenomic. "Realgrain provides a multitude of finishing effect
combinations that enable virtually an endless alphabet for creative expression.
And now that it provides the same interface and processor as Imagenomic's
Portraiture and Noiseware, photographers have access to an ideal suite of image
enhancement software products that can seamlessly work into their image
complete workflow process."
Because Realgrain 2 enables photographers to
automatically adjust the grain size based on the physical image dimensions, it
can dynamically render accurate grain patterns for varying image sizes.
Realgrain's controls for grain balance, tonal range, and color fine-tuning
enable the ability to quickly and easily generate superior output quality and
picture vibrancy for a truly intuitive workflow experience.
2 for Photoshop is available as a download for
$99.95 but is a free upgrade for current owners of Realgrain
1. Current owners of Imagenomic Portraiture and/or Noiseware
plugins are able to download the new Realgrain software at a discounted price
of $49.95. A cross-grade from Photoshop to Aperture plugin versions is also
discounted at $49.95.
