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.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now all corporate assets – people, objects, and spaces – can share information about themselves and thei...

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" in this scenario: microservice A (releases daily) depends on a couple of additions to backend B (re...

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Yet a closer inspection at the data reveals less than half of these cloud projects involve production...
