Alien Skin Software Ships Image Doctor

Raleigh, NC (August 27, 2002) – Alien Skin Software, LLC, today released Image Doctor™, a set of powerful image-retouching filters for Photoshop®, Fireworks®, Paint Shop Pro®, and other image editors. The all-new Image Doctor magically removes blemishes and defects, quickly repairs over-compressed JPEGs, and seamlessly replaces unwanted details and objects. Professional and amateur photographers, photo editors, service bureaus, graphic designers, and Web designers can restore, retouch, repair and reclaim their images more quickly using Image Doctor.

Smart Fill replaces large objects and defects, intelligently combining the repair with the background. Smart Fill can remove signs and trash from landscapes, unwanted tourists from vacation snapshots, and uninvited guests from party photos, leaving no seams.

Scratch Remover mends small defects and removes unwanted background details. Simplifying photo restoration, Scratch Remover can repair scratches, folds, creases, and wrinkles. Microphones, telephone poles, and text can be eliminated cleanly and quickly from photos, also.

Spot Lifter removes blemishes while preserving the texture and detail of the underlying image. Spot Lifter is ideal for erasing skin flaws such as moles, birthmarks, acne, and beauty marks. Users can easily reduce dark circles, shadows, and wrinkles around the eyes. Spot Lifter will remove photo imperfections such as watermarks, stains and dust, also.

JPEG Repair revitalizes over-compressed JPEGs. Users can remove blocky compression artifacts while retaining detail and adding grain. Repairs can be made to an entire image or as needed to smaller selections. JPEG repair can be used to repurpose Web graphics and replace lost originals. Only Image Doctor offers selection-based image repair. Because of the intelligent pattern matching of Image Doctor, retouchers can use the familiar selection tools of their image editor to correct imperfections in one pass. This makes Image Doctor the perfect complement to existing photo-editing tools.

Image Doctor delivers these effects in a clean, easy-to-use interface. Users can tweak their effects in a huge preview that includes a before/after toggle, command menus, keyboard shortcuts, and unlimited undo capability. Image Doctor offers the ability to switch between filters in the preview window and unlimited undo capability.

Image Doctor is available for both Windows and Macintosh, including OS X, at an estimated street price of $129. Registered users of other Alien Skin products will receive discount pricing when ordering directly from Alien Skin Software. A 30-day demo, online tutorials, and online delivery are available at the Alien Skin Web site. Image Doctor is also available through stores and catalogs.
