PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwired - January 30, 2014) - onOne Software®, Inc., a leading developer of innovative digital photography solutions, today announced a special upgrade offer for current owners of digital photography plug-in software. Any person who owns Nik Software, Topaz Labs, or any other digital photography plug-in for Adobe® Photoshop®, Lightroom®, or Apple® Aperture® may upgrade to onOne Software's all-in-one photo editing solution, Perfect Photo Suite® 8 Premium Edition for only $129.95, which is a $50 savings off the regular price. This offer is valid for a limited time and may not be combined with any other offer.
Perfect Photo Suite 8 Premium Edition seamlessly integrates eight modules designed to provide photographers with the right tools to create extraordinary images, inspire creativity, and solve the most common photo problems. The modules offer a streamlined and intuitive workflow and address essential and time-intensive image-processing tasks that are important to photographers. Perfect Photo Suite 8 can be used as a plug-in to Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Lightroom, and Apple Aperture -- and unlike other plug-ins, it can also be used by itself as a standalone application with layers, photo enhancement and editing capabilities, including spot healing, retouching, and content-aware fill.
"Our mission has always been to provide powerful photography software to everyone who is passionate about their photography, such as the owners of the Nik Software and Topaz Labs plug-ins," said Craig Keudell, president of onOne Software. "Leveraging our extensive experience as a plug-in developer and adding the customer-requested tools that make Perfect Photo Suite 8 a complete photo editor makes it an ideal solution that can bring together all of a photographer's stylization and editing needs."
Perfect Photo Suite 8 Features:
Eight integrated modules: Effects, Enhance, Portrait, B&W, Portrait, Mask, Layers, Resize, and Browse -- each module is designed to target a specific image-processing task and contains just the right tools, letting photographers focus on the tasks they need to accomplish, without clutter or confusion.
- Perfect Effects brings out the "WOW" in your photos with the transformative power of its adjustable filters, customizable presets, and manual controls to fine-tune the look of effects. Filters can be instantly applied, adjusted, combined, stacked, or blended giving empowering photographers to stylize images quickly, take complete creative control, or immerse themselves in freeform creativity.
- Perfect Enhance offers basic adjustment controls that almost every image needs to go from good to great. Tools to improve color, tone, and detail, and retouching tools for spot healing, red-eye removal, and removing objects with the Perfect Eraser, that uses content-aware fill technology, are all available in this module.
- Perfect Portrait offers simple, yet powerful, portrait retouching, with automated feature detection and enhancement tools to smooth skin, remove blemishes, brighten eyes and teeth, and correct skin color. Fast processing speeds also allow photographers to retouch images quickly for stunning portraits.
- Perfect B&W helps photographers develop beautiful black and white images quickly and easily. It includes powerful and intuitive tools that add dramatic, elegant, and classic black and white looks to images instantly and offers users complete creative control to reproduce time-honored black and white processing techniques.
- Perfect Mask creates high quality masks quickly with automated functionality and powerful tools that make selecting subjects and isolating backgrounds for removal extraordinarily accurate.
- Perfect Layers gives photographers the ability to combine images and extend their image editing options in a layered file workflow without requiring Photoshop. Users can create and edit multi-layered files with Perfect Layers directly from Lightroom, Aperture or as a standalone application.
- Perfect Resize is the industry standard for image enlargement. It is renowned across the photographic and printing industries for its ability to increase image size well over 1000% without the loss of sharpness or detail that is normally expected. Proven Genuine Fractals® technology has been applied to algorithms that optimize the clarity and detail of different image types, including mobile snapshots.
- Browse quickly provides access to photos wherever they're stored-whether that's on the computer, network, or on a cloud-based storage service.
Versatile Filters That Make Images Look Their Best: The best photo effects can be created and added all in the Effects module with the versatile filters and presets available in Perfect Photo Suite 8. Perfect Effects has a base of 23 adjustable filters, including:
- Dynamic Contrast adds stunning clarity to images and makes them pop by accentuating the levels of contrast, without sacrificing highlight and shadow detail, creating halos, or affecting saturation.
- Lens Blur includes the best parts of FocalPoint technology to create bokeh, tilt-shift, and selective focus effects after the shot.
- HDR Look adds the edgy look of high dynamic range to images. Settings are adjustable to create effects that range from subtle to surreal.
- Vintage turns photos into a nostalgic memory with retro-style filters.
Powerful Brushes provide the right results for specific editing tasks:
- Perfect Eraser removes objects with content-aware fill technology
- Retouch Brush uses spot healing to remove small distractions
- Clone Brush removes unwanted items by replicating and covering specified areas of an image
- Masking Brush reveals underlying layers or selectively applies effects
- Perfect Brush delivers precise edge-detection masking
- Hundreds of Customizable Presets are available throughout Perfect Photo Suite 8 that make it easy for every photographer to instantly create an image they love. Presets can also be used as starting points for creativity and efficiency. Presets are included in the Enhance, Effects, B&W, Portrait, and Resize modules.
- Perfect Batch engine simultaneously applies presets from multiple modules and a watermark to a selected group of images.

There will be 50 billion Internet connected devices by 2020. Today, every manufacturer has a propriety protocol and an app. How do we securely integrate these "things" into our lives and businesses in a way that we can easily control and manage? Even better, how do we integrate these "things" so that they control and manage each other so our lives become more convenient or our businesses become more profitable and/or safe? We have heard that the best interface is no interface. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, Co-Founder & CTO at Octoblu, Inc., will discuss how these devices generate enough data to learn our behaviors and simplify/improve our lives.

Last week, while in San Francisco, I used the Uber app and service four times. All four experiences were great, although one of the drivers stopped for 30 seconds and then left as I was walking up to the car. He must have realized I was a blogger. None the less, the next car was just a minute away and I suffered no pain. In this article, my colleague, Ved Sen, Global Head, Advisory Services Social, Mobile and Sensors at Cognizant shares his experiences and insights.

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) irreversibly encoded. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Acision, will look at how this identity problem can be solved and discuss ways to use existing web identities for real-time communication.

While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehension and conference efficiency.

The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, will discuss single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example to explain some of these concepts including when to use different storage models.
