[11:15 AM] Photogenetics Updates, PlusPack Addons Released

Q-Research has updated their image enhancement utility, PhotoGenetics, to version 1.10. Q-Research has also announced the availability of add-ons, PlusPak, for the PhotoGenetics application, providing new features. According to Q-Research:

Q-Research, the company that launched PhotoGenetics, the first user-friendly image enhancement software based on "genetic algorithms," today introduced PhotoGenetics PlusPak -- new add-on components to correct spatial distortions, enhance specific colors or create artistic variations of an image.

Additionally, the company released PhotoGenetics 1.10 for Windows 95/98/NT and Mac OS, a more intuitive version of the software that includes new drag and drop image file management capabilities.

The PhotoGenetics PlusPak Dewarp Evolution corrects spatial distortions -- a common problem with the optics of many digital cameras, particularly when taking wide angle shots. The standard version of PhotoGenetics includes a similar function using predefined dewarp genotypes. With the new dewarp add-on, PhotoGenetics PlusPak users can create their own genotypes, tailored to their specific camera, zoom settings and lenses.

The Isocolor Evolution creates unique and varied images by only changing one specific color in a photo -- making it less colorful, more brilliant, darker, paler or changing the color altogether. Using this add-on, a school bus in an image can be changed to a more vibrant yellow or even green. Another example would be the evolution of a brown door to a purple door

The Artistic Evolution add-on in the PhotoGenetics PlusPak is designed to produce extreme modifications of an image, creating unusual and strangely compelling results. For example, some colors become saturated, while other colors change altogether. After this evolution, photos may look like a watercolor painting or a psychedelic rock poster from the ‘60s.

The PhotoGenetics PlusPak is available for US$29.95, which includes all of the enhancements. Enhancements can be purchased separately for as little as US$9.95 each. The PhotoGenetics application is available via download for US$29.95, or on CD for US$39.95. You can find more information at the Q-Research web site.
