Imagenomic has released the latest version of its Realgrain film and grain effects plug-in with some notable improvements. The software is now fully 64-bit compatible for Mac and Windows and works with Adobe Photoshop Creative Cloud, as well as CS5/CS6 and Adobe Photoshop Elements 11. With its improved multi-core support, Imagenomic promises up to four times faster processing speed. In addition to the under-the-hood improvements, Realgrain 2’s user interface has been updated to match its Noiseware 5 and Portraiture 2 siblings.
Unlimited presets, multiple categories, import/export functions and a place to write notes about those presets are now available thanks to the new preset manager. Realgrain 2’s new history control is unlimited, too, so you can go back in time to any point of your adjustment process.
A 15-day trial download is available and after running through some of the software’s long list of film presets, experimenting with some black and white conversions and exploring the software’s extensive controls, we think it’s well worth checking out. Current owners of Realgrain 1 are eligible for a free upgrade; the price for new users is $100.
