HSC Edit update
HumanSoftware today announced an update to its Aperture effects plugin, HSC Edit 1.4. A new module has been added to the bundle, MultiTones, which allows users to create black and white or multi-tone images using color filtering with contrast, brightness, and detail adjustments. The new tool resaturates images, allowing the hue to be adjusted for a duotone effect. User edges can be added, or picked from a preset library, then adjusted for blending.
This latest release arrives just weeks after HSC Edit 1.3. A total of 14 modules can now be used to modify or add effects to images, including Curves, Enhancer, DeNoise, ReFocus, Smoothen, Distort, Lens Correction, Frames, ClassicFrames, Fractals, Lights, Surfaces, and ToolBox. The complete HSC Edit 1.4 is available from HumanSoftware for $300, or $70 per module except Curves which costs $30 or Enhancer for $50.
