Imagenomic Releases Realgrain 2 Image Effects Software

64-Bit Compatibility, New Preset Manager and History Control Across Pro Plugin Suite Create Ideal Workflow Software Set for Image Correction and Enhancement

Entire Pro Plugin Suite Now Compatible with Adobe Photoshop Creative Cloud and Apple Aperture

New York – August 29, 2013 – Imagenomic, an independent software vendor specializing in digital imagery enhancement solutions, has announced the release of its Realgrain 2 image effects software plugin. Realgrain 2 is a finishing plugin for achieving inimitable black-and-white conversion, toning, colorizing and darkroom effects. It simulates the grain patterns, color, and tonal range of conventional silver halide films, as well as a variety of scan resolutions to convey a truly film-like image effect.

The software is now 64-bit compatible for Mac and Windows and works with Adobe Photoshop Creative Cloud, CS5/CS6 and Adobe Photoshop Elements 11 as well as Apple Aperture. In addition, Realgrain 2 incorporates an improved multi-core support, which provides processing speeds up to four times the speed of its predecessor. A new Preset Manager now allows photographers to create an unlimited number of presets with multiple categories, and a place to make special notations about settings. The plugin comes with a number of pre-defined effect presets as well as a library of 25 color and 20 black-and-white film presets. The software's new History Control also allows an unlimited number of history steps for fine-tuning, precise settings, and lots of experimenting to find the perfect look without losing previous steps.

“Realgrain addresses the 'last-mile' of the workflow, a critical and final stage in making the photograph. If you are looking for a superior black-and-white conversion, toning and color effects or long for the darkroom age to achieve the soft, warm graininess of film, then Realgrain 2 is the plugin for you,” explains Art Ghazaryan, Co-CEO and COO of Imagenomic. “Realgrain provides a multitude of finishing effect combinations that enable virtually an endless alphabet for creative expression. And now that it provides the same interface and processor as Imagenomic's Portraiture and Noiseware, photographers have access to an ideal suite of image enhancement software products that can seamlessly work into their image complete workflow process.”

Because Realgrain 2 enables photographers to automatically adjust the grain size based on the physical image dimensions, it can dynamically render accurate grain patterns for varying image sizes. Realgrain's controls for grain balance, tonal range, and color fine-tuning enable the ability to quickly and easily generate superior output quality and picture vibrancy for a truly intuitive workflow experience.

Realgrain 2 for Photoshop is available as a download for $99.95 but is a free upgrade for current owners of Realgrain 1. Current owners of Imagenomic Portraiture and/or Noiseware plugins are able to download the new Realgrain software at a discounted price of $49.95. A cross-grade from Photoshop to Aperture plugin versions is also discounted at $49.95.
