The Jade Plugin, from DataMind Srl has been released!
It is designed for Apple’s Aperture, but only version 2.1 and up. Jade started life as a standalone application for Mac OS X and, more recently, Windows. It provides algorithms and parameters for enhancing the color, contrast and dynamic range of digital photographs using a simple interface that lets users click a button to save the result. It also features fine-tuning capabilities that let you adjust intensity values, image contrast and color correction for unbalanced images.
The Jade plug-in enables users of Apple’s higher end photo manipulation and cataloging software to make advanced changes to their images without having to resort to an external editing application such as Adobe Photoshop.
