Shapiro Shipping Sharpen+Soften 2.0

Shapiro Consulting Group, Inc. has released a new version of Asiva Sharpen+Soften, bringing it to version 2.0. Asiva Sharpen+Soften is a Photoshop plug-in designed for digital image manipulation. The latest release features correction enhancements and new "memory dots" for multiple settings saving. According to Shapiro Consulting Group:

Shapiro Consulting Group, Inc. (SCGI) is announcing the release of Asiva Sharpen+Soften Plug-in for Adobe Photoshop Version 2.0.

The Asiva Sharpen+Soften plug-in is based on the patented Asiva technology and the unique Sharpen and Soften functions used in Asiva Photo. It allows users to make imasklessi selections using Asivais unique curve technology. Users can make precise sharpening or softening effects based on the Hue, Saturation and Luminance components of each pixel in the image.

These curves represent the color component values of the desired selection and allow for filter roll-offs so all effects will appear completely natural. Now, even more tools have been added to the plug-in.

The new features found in the upgrade will ensure ease of use and vastly increased precision in how corrections are applied. Users will now see the RGB and HSV color values of each pixel as they roll the cursor over the preview image. These number values will also be marked on the maps assisting in the curve creation. An iEdges Onlyi feature has been added along with the option to change the Opacity and Contract or Expand the physical area being effected.

Five Snapshot Settings buttons or imemory dotsi allow the user to quickly save and recall multiple plug-in settings without having to load or save them via the operating system. A Quick Curves menu has been added to rapidly change the HSL curves to select six common colors, the various kinds of sky and water, Asian/Caucasian/Hispanic/African American fleshtones, red/green/blue fringing colors found in electronic images, and the 10 Digizone categories.
