onOne Software Announces Perfect Resize For Adobe Photoshop And Photoshop Lightroom
onOne today announced Perfect Resize, one component of the Perfect Photo Suite 5.5 for Adobe Photoshop and Photoshop Lightroom, that was also announced today. The next generation of Genuine Fractals technology, Perfect Resize adds new features for achieving sharp detail when enlarging images, new gallery wrap and tiling options, and interface enhancements for photographers who want to make the highest quality prints. Perfect Resize supports Photoshop CS5, CS4, CS3 and CS2 and can now be used directly from within Adobe Photoshop Lightroom and Apple Aperture without the need for a separate host application.
New Features in Perfect Resize, the next generation of Genuine Fractals
NEW Smoothness Control: Designed for the demanding photographer, the new Smoothness control allows users to adjust the smoothness of curved edges to minimize artifacts. This new feature is very useful when resizing images and is especially valuable when working with lower resolution source files or when an extreme crop is required from a higher resolution source file.
NEW Loupe Tool: With the new Loupe feature, photographers can get an instant 1:1 or 100% magnified preview of enlargement quality while still seeing the entire image with the Loupe function of the Navigator.

NEW Presets: Photographers can now achieve consistent results in less time by saving commonly used settings with the new Presets feature. Photographers who routinely send images to labs will benefit by creating a preset that allows them to resize the image, apply a specific sharpening amount and apply a gallery wrap all in one step. Stock photographers who need to resize batches of images before submitting them will also benefit from this new feature as well.
NEW Sharpening Methods: Two new sharpening methods allow photographers to sharpen small details without causing halos on larger, distinct edges. The first sharpening method targets out-of-focus images and the second method adapts the sharpening amount automatically to the size of image details.
Work Directly with Lightroom and Aperture: Perfect Resize has improved integration with Photoshop Lightroom and Apple Aperture and no longer requires a host application to get amazing results when enlarging an image. Of course, it still works within Adobe Photoshop as well.
Improved Gallery Wrap: Photographers can now be preview the Perfect Resize gallery wrap results in real time. This allows users to quickly fine tune their settings for the perfect gallery wrap. Additionally, gallery wrap corners are automatically filled in with matching image detail from the surrounding area. While it may not sound like much, the improvements to this feature alone will save photographers hours of time when assembling their gallery wrap.
Improved Tiling: The Tiling feature now automatically saves each tile as new file instead of individual layers in a single file. This makes it much easier to save and print individual tiles especially if you send these tiles out to a print service provider. Additionally, because each tile is its own file, you can easily create canvas diptychs, triptychs or mosaics with and the improved gallery wrap feature.
Batch Processing Enhancements: Easily work with images of mixed size, type and orientation with more batch-processing engine options. Save time by batch processing images from the Export dialog inside of Lightroom.
Misc Improvements: Additional enhancements include presets for common printer resolutions, improved progress indicators, improved film grain simulation, the ability to arbitrarily rotate the crop box and a faster, smoother image previewing experience.
