What's new in Perfect Photo Suite Basic Edition

Version 9.5.1640:

Note: Now requires OS X 10.8 or later.

  • Browse Enhancements
    • Persistent Thumbnail Cache: Stores thumbnails are previews on disk so that when you go back to folder a second time it loads much faster. You can control the size and location in the preferences.
    • Improved Detail View: Our goal was to reduce or eliminate seeing pixelated previews in Detail View. It now generates a larger preview up front so you will see less pixelated previews. It also reads ahead and behind so that when you move between images there is no pixelation. It also continues to process thumbnails and previews in the background.
    • Improved Grid View: The thumbnail grid has been rewritten. It should be faster changing folders. You can also scroll through large folders with no detail.
    • Albums: Create and manage lists of photos that can live anywhere, similar to a collection in Lightroom. Watch Videos
  • Crash Logger: Automatically logs crashes and hangs and reports them back to on1.
  • Scratch Disk: You can now configure where you scratch disk is located. This is handy if your boot volume is a small SSD. Adjust this in the preferences.
  • Mask Enhancements
    • Line Mask Tool: Create or edit masks with a point-to-point polygon tool. Click around the shape you want to mask, then click in the middle to mask that area.
    • Double-click on Blur and Chisel: You can now (or finally again) apply the Blur Mask and Chisel Mask tools to the entire mask by double-clicking on the tool icons.
    • Luminosity Mask: You create a luminosity mask or copy the luminosity to paste it as a mask onto other layers. The commands live in the Layer and or Mask menus.
    • Mask Contextual Menu: When you right click on a mask thumbnail in Layers or Effects there is now a contextual menu with the same options as the Mask menu.
    • Feather in or out with Blur Mask tool: There is now a mode option in the tool options bar for the Blur Mask tool. When it blurs it can either lighten or darken so that the blur goes inside or outside the current mask instead of just along the edge. Handy finishing touch for hair.
    • "O" key now toggles the mask preview on and off like Lightroom.
  • Portrait improvements
    • Faster Loading, like three seconds instead of 12!
    • Faster Control Point Adjustments. You can still get it to beep occasionally. We will continue to improve this for Suite 10.
    • Updated Control Point Overlay.
  • GPU Processing for Perfect Effects: We are in the process of converting everything in Perfect Effects to process in the GPU (video card). This make it much faster to adjust the sliders and use tools. For Suite 9.5 the following filters have been updated.
    • Blending Options
    • Antique
    • Color Enhancer
    • Cross Process
    • Lens Flare
    • Photo Filter
    • Split Tone
    • Vintage
    • Vignette
  • Misc Enhancements
    • Hold down command and option when you launch to delete preferences.
    • Colorize and Invert options added to the Borders and Textures panes in Effects. This gives you more control over what color you want for basic borders like Simple and Emulsion.
    • Crop settings now sticky across sessions and modules.
    • 100% Actual Size option is now available in the Print dialog.
    • Brushes should now behave more like Photoshop. They feather equally in and out instead of just in. The brush profile has also been modified to act more like Photoshop.
    • Color Temp control has been adjusted to be more yellow, less orange. It now tracks closer to Lightroom when you are working on a raw file
    • Suppress Edit What dialog (coming soon). When you use the Suite as a standalone you will not be prompted for your file handling options every time you open a file. These options are being moved to the preferences instead.

After looking at this program I found information relating to the use of a program called PRO-Tector 6 that acts like a root kit. The poster was unable to put his computer to sleep and he mentioned issues of not being able to spin down the drives. The program was installed at the root level of the Mac and caused all kinds of problems. I know this company uses this scheme and it is dangerous. About 10 years ago Sony came up with a system like this and hosed the PC world. Check out this post: http://trick77.com/2010/08/08/mac-doesnt-auto-sleep-anymore-hard-disks/ I'm done with these guys

After installing Perfect Photo Suite there is no folder in the startup item folder (both folders on Harddisk). The Installer is clean and save.

I have also installed Perfect Photo Suite Premium Edition and there is no "ProTec6b" file on my system, or any similarly named file.

Mine was v8.5, so perhaps onOne quit using PRO-Tector by then.

I do believe the System Requirements are incorrect. It should be Mac OS 10.7 or higher!

Thanks for pointing this out, Archiethearchiver. I've updated the SysReqs, and have repaired a couple of other problems that weren't taken care of when this listing was updated. Everything should be good to go now.

Ridiculous upgrade pricing for current users of version 6. I paid to upgrade to version 6 in May 2012. Spending another $149 to move to version 7 is out of the question.

A great suite of utilities for working with images in Photoshop, Lightroom etc. But, technical support from European (UK) office seems a bit limited. This can make for a frustrating experience when a technical issue is beyond the scope / experience of the technical support representative. This doesn’t win any advocates or encourage buying future updates.

That problem has been fixed. It was the company that makes the anti-piracy ProTec6 that had to update their software. I used to have the same problem but when I reinstalled the latest version of Photo Suite I now no longer have problems with my computer not going to sleep anymore.
