PercepTool2™ and FreeHDR™ Press Release

(And if you hadn't heard enough from me today...)

-----------------------
December 29, 2010
For Immediate Release Press Release:

Atlantic Light Works and Reindeer Graphics announce the release of PercepTool 2™ a Photoshop add-on suite that performs High Dynamic Range (HDR), Tone Mapping and Perceptual Effect operations on digital photographs. Compatible with both Windows and Mac platforms in 32- and 64-bit processing, it operates in Photoshop CS4 and CS5 (Photoshop Extended required for 32-bits/channel). PercepTool 2™ works with both B&W and Color images in 8-bits, 16-bits and 32-bits.

Completely revised and updated, PercepTool 2™ includes a new interface for the Perceptual Effect routine that now includes Exposure and Contrast adjustments instead of using Photoshop tools. The Perceptual Effect adjustment has been redesigned to operate faster and to protect the highlights. In addition, PercepTool 2™ now includes Equalizer™, a superior multi-contrast Tone Mapping interface, and FreeHDR™, a High Dynamic Range operator that combines images without ‘grunge’ effects. Included is a Histogram with both Levels and Ansel Adams Zone System scales. LiveView™, the ability to work on the main image itself and not a preview, is unique to PercepTool 2™.

Photographers will find the new HDR and Tone Mapping abilities of PercepTool 2™ especially exciting. FreeHDR™ finds an optimal alignment for images to be blended (with multiple quality settings) that does not suffer from the flaws in Photoshop’s alignment. The blending of the images occurs with accurate color rendition, reduced noise, and attention to the realistic nature of the photograph itself, rather than an interpretation.

PercepTool 2™ may be downloaded only from http:// www.georgedewolfe.com/perceptool.html. For those who have purchased the original PercepTool™ the upgrade cost is $75. The full version is $95.

The blending of the images occurs with accurate color rendition, minimal noise, reduced ghosting, and attention to the realistic nature of the photograph itself, rather than an interpretation.

Compare the color rendering, alignment and blending of FreeHDR™ with Photomatix® and other HDR programs. We think you’ll agree that the results are a notch above the rest…at a price that can’t be beat.

FreeHDR™ may be downloaded FREE only from http://www.georgedewolfe.com/perceptool.html.

TLDR; We've dropped the price to $95 and are releasing the HDR part (FreeHDR) for free. Really free -- no nags or anything.
