The more significant improvements are for Tintii. Lightness adjustments are now scaled by the decay slider, producing a much more satisfying result than previous versions by eliminating harsh aliasing. Performance has also been improved again after some degradation in the previous version.
Both plugins now work correctly as "smart filters" from within Photoshop, and so can be used for nondestructive editing.
Updates to both Tintii (2.8.1) and Urban Lightscape (1.3.1) are now available, bringing support for Apple’s high-resolution retina displays. The updates also include a number of compatibility improvements for older versions of Mac OS X.
- Support for 16 and 32 bits per channel images.
- Better support for the active colour profile.
- Restoration of the online help system on Mac OS X.
A number of additional tweaks to the user interface, such as higher resolution sliders, and improved default settings for all sliders, are now also included. These will be of benefit to users of the standalone apps as well as the Photoshop plugins.
