Reindeer Releases Optipix for Photoshop

Plugin corrects common problems with digital photos By Dave Nagel
Reindeer has released Optipix 1.0. Optipix is a plugin that's designed to correct common problems with digital photos in Adobe Photoshop. It can also be used to average frames in NLEs for capturing sharper, higher-resolution stills from movie files. It's available now for Mac OS 9, Mac OS X and Windows.

The Optipix package consists of several individual plugins that work in both 8- and 16-bit-per-channel modes. These include:

  • Auto Contrast, which enhances overexposed or underexposed images without affecting image color;
  • Blend Exposures, which can blend an overexposed image with an underexposed image;
  • Add to Buffer and Show Average, which, together, add multiple images (up to 30,000) to average them and generate a higher-quality image;
  • Nudge, for numerically moving selections;
  • Edge Enhancer, which smoothes noise and enhances object edges;
  • Safe Sharpen, which preserves color and enhances the edges of an image.

Using the plugins in NLEs that support Photoshop plugins, the Add To Buffer and Show Average filters can also be used to capture and average multiple frames from a movie file to provide sharper output.


The software, available now for Mac OS 9, Mac OS X and Windows, sells for $99. For more information, visit http://www.reindeergraphics.com.
