namesuppressed Releases Update to Softener: Glamour Softening Photoshop Plugin

10 Feb 2006 00:00:00 GMT

namesuppressed has updated their Softener plugin for Adobe Photoshop and compatible image programs. Softener gives digital photos the dreamy look of glamour photos by adding soft focus effects to any image.

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 1.23 is available now for a retail price of $14.95. Softener may be purchased directly from the namesuppressed website at

How To Get Better, Faster Support

01 Mar 2005 00:00:00 GMT

Sometimes when we get support emails from customers, it can take longer to solve the issue if we don't have the same meaning for some computer words. There are thousands of computer words and acronyms now, it's nearly impossible to learn them all. If you'd like to expand your tech vocabulary, here are some words that are often confused or used incorrectly:

To copy a file from your computer to the internet. If you have your own webpage, you would need to "upload" the graphics files to your website.
To copy a file from the internet to your computer. If you want to get the latest namesuppressed plugin, you would need to "download" it from the internet.

Confused about the difference between uploading and downloading? Then think of the internet as a "big place in the sky". If you wanted to put something on the internet, you would have to reach "up" to put it up there. If you wanted to take something from the internet, you would bring it "down" to where you are.

A program that you run to "install" some software onto your computer, and have it setup for you automatically. Usually you download an installer program from the internet, and it will have a filename that ends in .exe. Then you would double click the "exe" file to run the installer program.
To setup software to work on your computer. Think of a car engine, you must have an engine "installed" in your car before it can work properly.

Installing is not the same as downloading. Downloading is just copying a file from the internet. Installing means running a program on your computer to have some software setup for you.

If you found those explanations to be helpful, you might like to browse the glossary at e-consultancy. It's one of the world's best resources for learning new computer words.

Corel already has their own line of graphics software, including Painter and Photo-Paint. Corel has promised to continue development of PSP, and most of the Jasc team are still working at Corel, so hopefully it will remain business as usual.
