Practical applications include smoothing skin in imperfect photos, and adding soft focus effects to digital wedding photos. Softener reduces the need to use special lenses when taking photos - the same soft focus effects can be recreated digitally.
Softener includes a range of preset effects, from subtle glows and romantic soft focus effects, through to strong blurs and glossy magazine effects. Presets can be used as the basis for an effect and tweaked to get the desired result, or new settings can be created from scratch. User created presets can be saved for later use.
Softener is used by all kinds of digital photographers, for everything from weddings, baby photos & portraits, through to glamour photography and corporate photos.
The latest update corrects issues with the preview display, and is a free upgrade for all registered Softener customers.
Softener runs on computers with Windows 95/98/Me/2000/XP. At least 32MB of RAM is required. A 400 Mhz processor is recommended. Any Windows computer made in the last 5 years should be able to run the software.
Softener also requires a Photoshop plugin compatible application to run. It works with a range of programs, including Adobe Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Paint Shop Pro, Corel Photopaint, Irfanview, Ulead Photoimpact and many others.
