Image Trends Adds Fisheye-Hemi Plug-In
Image Trends recently announced the release of the Fisheye-Hemi Plug-In for Aperture 2.1, Apple’s photo editing and management software. According to Image Trends, the Fisheye-Hemi Plug-In filter set provides correction for hemispheric fisheye lens distortion, working seamlessly within Aperture’s photo editing and management environment. The plug-in allows the photographer to preserve a normal view of people by not distorting their faces and bodies, as the software straightens vertical lines. The company claims that the Fisheye-Hemi Plug-In uses almost all of the pixel data in that view with no loss of image resolution while displaying the intended composition and framing better than other un-warping programs.
“The Fisheye-Hemi Plug-In offers quick and effortless correction of fisheye lens distortion directly within user’s Aperture image library,” said Dan Sullivan, president and CEO of Image Trends, Inc. “Our objective is to quickly provide our other unique workflow productivity tools in Aperture 2.1 versions. We plan to offer PearlyWhites and ShineOff Aperture Plug-Ins within the next 60 days with other products to follow.”
The Fisheye-Hemi Plug-In is also available for Photoshop on Mac and Windows based machines. Each plug-in is priced at US$29.95. Similar to the other Image Trends products, there is a try before you buy policy; individuals are encouraged to download a free trial version (it watermarks the output) from the ITI Web site www.ImageTrendsInc.com.
