Atlantic Light Works Introduces PercepTool Plugin for Photoshop

Atlantic Light Works has released PercepTool, a software plugin for Photoshop CS3 and CS4, that duplicates the percept of the human brain from a black-and-white 2D image and make it more like the real thing. This capability is demonstrated in the before (left) and after (right) images above.

Unlike other HDR software, PercepTool takes the luminance image formed by the camera and adds special high level algorithms that mimic what happens in the visual section of the brain. The image is transformed from a flat image to one that has amazing depth, tonal quality, and presence.

PercepTool is available for Windows and Mac platforms, $90 to download. There’s a 30-day trial version if you’d like to try the plugin for yourself.
