The latest software tool from OnOne is designed to let you create and work with layered files in your application of choice, whether that’s Adobe Lightroom, Bridge or, when the retail version releases, Aperture.
“We hear from photographers every day, that more and more of their image enhancement is taking place in applications like Photoshop Lightroom,” says OnOne president Craig Keudell. “They tell us they need additional tools to let them do even more like easily create composite images, retouch portraits and get creative with blending modes.”
That’s what Perfect Layers provides. It allows you to adjust blending modes, create brushes and change layers in software that wouldn’t normally have that functionality.
Even better – it does it for free. For now at least. The public preview represents an incomplete build, but is free to download and use. The full retail version will run $159 when it comes out in the middle of this year.
You can download the free public preview directly from OnOne.
