Edit for Aperture 1.2

HumanSoftware has announced an update to HSC Edit 1.2 for Apple's Aperture 2. The plug-in suite of twelve modules now includes Edit Multiple Curves for Aperture, which adds a curves feature similar to Photoshop's Curves tool. The company claims to have improved on Photoshop's curves by adding multiple layers of curves, with each layer linking to a brush, allowing multiple color corrections within in image. The tool can work in highlights and shadows and it has a gray-point tool for color balance. The new version also adds a before and after split-screen that allows users to see applied effects before committing to them. The software is available as a suite for $300 with individual modules available for $70 per module. The new Multi-Curves module is being introduced at $30 and requires Aperture 2.1.

The Edit for Aperture suite includes modules for noise removal, image refocusing, and an image beautifier. It also has a module to correct lens distortion and a module for adding grid distortions. It has a module for adding frames and edges and a module for what the company calls "classy frames."

Rounding out the list is a fractal light module and a light effects module, a surface module and a toolbox, which does masking, channel mixing, grain effects and more. The twelve modules in HSC Edit contain over 4000 effects that can be applied to single images or batches.
