June 13, 2007 – Yesterday, Image Trends Inc., a digital imaging tools provider, announced the PearlyWhites and ShineOff plug-ins for Adobe Photoshop for Windows-based machines. Mac versions are expected to be available soon.
PearlyWhites, an automatic teeth whitener, and ShineOff, an automatic skin shine reducer, are priced at $49.95. The Fisheye-Hemi Plug-In for Mac versions will be priced at $29.95.
"These new automated plug-ins provide an amazing transformation of images with people. As beauty is in the eye of the beholder, these new products dramatically improve photos of people," said Dan Sullivan, president and CEO of Image Trends, Inc., in a press release.
The PearlyWhites plug-in digitally whitens teeth by identifying white areas in the image surrounded by flesh tones and then automatically brightening these areas. Consequently, the whites of the eyes or light-colored jewelry may also be brightened. Effects are cumulative, and further correction with the Photoshop History Brush tool may be necessary.
The ShineOff plug-in removes shine from the subject’s skin tones, and is designed for single rather than multiple applications. Shine can further be controlled with Photoshop’s Fade tool.
Both plug-ins can be run on individual images or combined with other plug-ins and applied to multiple images using a Photoshop Action.
"Both plug-ins were designed for the Professional Photographer as workflow productivity tools to be combined in an action and run in batch mode, yet they are equally impressive when used on individual images from professional or amateur photographers," Sullivan said. "Harsh direct flash lighting adds unwanted shine to the face and digital cameras tend to yellow teeth making them appear unnatural. These new cosmetic plug-ins do such a flattering job of beautifying images, that their use becomes addictive."
