Neat Image 32bit v6.0 and 64bit editions

said by neat Image :

Neat Image v6.0 32-bit /Win

* Neat Image now can build noise profile using smaller image areas;
this is useful when the input image contains only small featureless areas
* Increased profiling speed (Auto Profile and Auto Fine-Tune)
* Increased filtration speed (several speed optimizations in the noise filter)

* Improved Neat Image plug-in's controls used to adjust the startup behaviour, settings of the plug-in in Photoshop actions and in smart filters:

The Actions menu is now used to adjust the plug-in behaviour in an action being recorded or in a smart filter being configured.
Also, the same Actions menu is used to configure the default startup behaviour of the plug-in. The old method of using the Defaults in Options is now completely replaced with the Action menu in plug-in. Please see the user guide for more details.

+ Plug-in: added support for Adobe Photoshop CS4 (32-bit)
+ Plug-in: added support for Adobe Photoshop Elements 7.0
* Plug-in: improved installer compatibility with localized versions of Photoshop

* Plug-in: improved behavior of the plug-in in smart filters in Photoshop CS4 and CS3
* Plug-in: improved recording of noise profiles and presets in Photoshop actions
* Plug-in: modified error reporting for smoother Photoshop-based batching

* Improved metadata compatibility with Nikon D90, D300, D700, D3, D60, and several more new Nikon cameras
* Improved metadata compatibility with older Nikon DSLR cameras
* Improved metadata compatibility with Nikon D1X with new firmware

* An image sent to Neat Image standalone via "Send To", "Open With" or drag-n-drop to Neat Image icon will now open either in Filtration Queue or Filtration Job Editor depending on the "Auto create new job on startup" setting in Neat Image options

* Improved functionality of "Save Output As" for multiple output images being saved in Filtration Queue (both automatic and manual saving of individual images is now available)

* Cosmetic improvements in the Batch Profiler, Profile Converter, Profile Viewer

* Improved compatibility with some invalid TIFFs saved by Capture 1
* Improved support of some compressed TIFFs

* Improved compatibility with Windows Vista

- Several other bug fixes and corrections

Re: The Software/Update thread

Dynamic Photo HDR new version 4.4

4.4
- Added more advanced setting for RAW images - Auto Developer. This will adjust the input RAW images such way so the produced tonemapped output will be now much closer to the fast preview. There were issues previously when on large files the TM full output would become muddy or would loose brilliance.

4.32
- Updated RAW reading for latest cameras

New version of Dynamic Photo HDR 4.5

-Fixed reading RAW portrait files from cameras that have orientation mark (broken in 4.4)
- Updated for newest cameras

Follow the link Rufus T Firefly See Profile posted.
»www.mediachance.com/hdri/version4.htm

Thanks for that link Rufus. Until you posted that link I could never figured out how to check for the latest version of Dynamic.

I now have that link bookmarked. Funny thing If I go to directly through their site I cannot get there. It's like they have it hidden someplace.

[EDIT, Adding content]
OK I found it. I guess the only way to get there is if Dynamic is open and you check for new version.

Re: The Software/Update thread

Freepacks are free Photoshop plugins based on the Filter Forge technology. Each freepack is centered around a different theme. Freepacks are distributed free of charge and don't have any time limitations. All filters included in the freepacks are also available from the Filter Library, so users of commercial Filter Forge can benefit from them as well.

There are four Freepacks available so far: »www.filterforge.com/download/
