I received an email earlier today that OnOne had released the updated version 8.5 of their Perfect Photo Suite. I came home right away and updated mine.
Here's a few of the things that have improved in the latest version:
"The update to 8.5 will provide a faster browser, way faster actually! It will also have substantial improvements to the Perfect Eraser and make results that much better. Overall stability and performance has been improved in the Suite to make it that more powerful of a photo editor."
Here is a video from OnOne of the new perfect eraser in action:
Existing owners of Perfect Photo Suite 8 are eligible for a free update. New users may purchase the Premium Edition for $179.95 or the Lightroom & Aperture Edition for only $99.95. The Standard Edition, a standalone application, is available for $79.95. Owners of earlier versions of the Perfect Photo Suite can upgrade to the Premium Edition for $99.95 or the Lightroom & Aperture Edition for $79.95.
