Reindeer Graphics Updates Optipix

Version 1.1 gains two new plugins By Dave Nagel
Reindeer Graphics has released an update to Optipix, the company's suite of image manipulation tools for Adobe Photoshop. The new release, version 1.1, adds two new plugins to the suite and is available now as a free update to current users.

Optipix 1.1 is a collection of 16-bit filters targeted toward professional photographers. These filters include Blend Exposure, which allows photographers to combine bracketed exposures to produce images with strong details in shadows and highlights while eliminating overexposed and underexposed areas in the combined image. It also includes Edge ENhancer, which sharpens images without producing noise commonly associated with sharpening filters. It also includes Auto COntrast, Nudge and Safe Sharpen filters.

The new version adds two filters to this list: Safe Median and Power Median. Safe Median is a noise-reduction tool designed to preserve colors and edge detail. Power Median is a customizable median filter that's also designed to remove artifacts that have an orientation, such as scratches.

The new version is a free update for current users. The full version of Optipix 1.1 runs $99 and support Mac OS 9, Mac OS X and Windows. For more information, visit
