PhotoTools 2 Lite Released
onOne software has released PhotoTools 2 Lite, a free version of its plug-in for Photoshop that includes 14 photo effects taken from both the standard and professional editions. The effects can be applied to any image brought into Photoshop, with a before-and-after preview available from within the plug-in. Effects can be combined into a layered stack, while each stack can still be individually altered.
Kodachrome provides a digital replication of Kodak's Kodachrome film that creates a more red-toned photograph, while Velvia simulates the Fugi Velvia film effect for added saturation. Other effects include Black Soft, Bleach Bypass, Boost color, Chrome, Cross Process, Digital Fill Flash, and Golden Hour Enhancer.
PhotoTools 2 Lite requires Mac OS X 10.4.8 and Photoshop CS2, 9.0.2., CS3, or CS4. The plug-in is available for free from the onOne website.
