Imagenomic Release RealGrain™ & Portraiture Plug-ins

Portraiture and RealGrain are two new plug-ins from Imagenomic which are designed to enhance your photographs.

RealGrain allows the user to emulate photographic grain from different film types in images using a Photoshop plug-in. It allows the user to dynamically scale grain based upon image dimensions, it also features controls for grain balance, tonal and colour fine-tuning and comes preloaded with a range of predefined film type libraries.

Portraiture is a plug-in designed to make the tedious process of retouching portraits and glamour shots an easy task. "It intelligently smoothens and removes imperfections while preserving skin texture and other important portrait details such as hair, eyebrows, eyelashes etc." The controls allow the user to finely refine the way in which this is done and also limit the areas affected through the use of an auto-mask feature.

From the looks of things these plug-ins look like they have had a lot of work done to them. I'll get back to you with a more in-depth review of them once I've had a chance to try them. Imagenomic also make a plug-in and standalone app called Noiseware which eliminates unwanted noise and artifacts from digital images.
