Human Software's Edit 3 adds layer support for Aperture

updated 12:00 am EDT, Sat June 25, 2011

Plug-in suite v3 adds mask, text, wavelet layers

Human Software has launched Edit 3, adding layer support to the Aperture plug-in suite. Version 3.0 allows layers in Aperture, as well as Adobe's Lightroom program, supporting size and rotation adjustments, opacity controls, blending and masking via brushes and paths. The toolbox has numerous path tools that work with the new layers, including Bezier or BSpline tools for shadowing, shape tools and repeats. Text and wavelet layers are new, while other tools in the set can liquify and distort images on a specific layer.

The suite includes tools for adjusting depth of field, focus and blur. Tilt/shift and high dynamic range (HDR) effects, framing edges, fractal and surface effects are all adjustable, and noise can be added or removed.

Edit 3 requires Mac OS X 10.6 or later and is ready for Lion, Mac OS X 10.7. The program works with Aperture 3 (with 64-bit support), Lightroom 2 and 3, Photoshop CS3 - CS5 and Photoshop Elements 6-9. The full bundle is $200. There are 20 mini bundles that can be bought individually from the Edit 3 suite that range in price from $80 to $150.
