Title: onOne's "Perfect Resize 7" software
Post by: forkboy1965 on March 05, 2011, 10:48:57 pm
I just picked up onOne's Perfect Resize 7 (which I believe used to be called Genuine Fractals) for the purpose of upsizing some of my images for the purpose of printing. Kind of obvious, eh?

Anyway....

While I haven't yet read any pertinent documentation the website indicates the software can be installed to work with Photoshop, Lightroom (which I have) and Aperture, or as a stand-alone product.

If anyone out there has this software could you indicate in which manner you installed the software (stand-alone or as part of one of the other software titles) and why?

Thank you.

Not completely on point, but I've used Alien Skin's Blow Up 2 as a Photoshop plug-in and it works quite well that way...

Thank you for the reply.  Unfortunately I do not have Photoshop, but only Photoshop Elements and without looking I do not believe it plugs in to this version of Photoshop.

But hey!  Adobe is offering CS5 for $299 to current Elements users so maybe this should be the impetus to pull the trigger, so to speak.

Last week I had to resize some photos up to 3 meters high (Toulouse-Lautrec's posters exhibition). I used originals that I received from Paris (which were not the best, btw).
I resized them with Perfect Resize 7 to 100 ppi - billborad, and the result was very good.

Sounds like a good endorsement. 

I had heard about this product from a photographer from whom I have purchased a few prints.  He makes use of it for some of his wildlife photography.  I hope to do the same with some of my insect photos.

This is good to know, as I've been thinking about getting a program like this. Thanks for the post! :)

photog:  no problem!  I wish I could report my luck, but I haven't yet had a chance to make use of it, but confidence remains high!
