If you are looking for a software that lets you instantly apply high quality, professional photographic styles to your digital images with just one click, then optikVerve Labs ‘ virtualPhotographer is the software you need.
This free package comes in two versions: as a Photoshop plugin or as a standalone software.
I tested the PS plugin and that’s what I think about it:
First, on the official site you will find virtualPhotographer is compatible with Photoshop CS3 and older
But I successfully installed (and used) it on my CS4 Master Collection version.
This is a clearly unretouched digital photo:
and this is what you see when you launch the plugin
Now you can work with more than 200 preset effect with just one click or creating (and saving) your own ones adjusting several parameters.
That’s what I got with one click:
This is “mountain” effect, one of my favourites
Do you need some dramatic black and white? This is “Hollywood”
Compare it with the standard “desaturate” adjustment people use to get a B/W image…
no more playing with curves to get a decent B/W image…
Do you need a vintage image? “Less tungsten” is the one you need
And I could continue for hours… so go to www.optikvervelabs.com and download this amazing plugin.
