I am currently looking at purchasing some plugins for editing and am after any advice as to possible alternative products and also any experinces of users on the site. At the moment I only have access to photoshop elements 6 for editing, which does limit what I can do - I already use the following free plugins to help me get more out of my software: layermask curves editing tool and I am currently looking at the following two addons for purchase: redynamix a false HDR editing tool used to generate HRD images out of single exposures. I have used a demo version of this and so far its been good for what it produces - though it is a little fiddly to get used to example of edited shot: example However a point of confusion is that the same comapany also makes a (similar) true HDR editing addon: dynamic photo HDRi which also offers single file (false) HDR as well as multiple photo (true) HDR pocessing support. Interestingly both programs are also sold in a bundle deal with each other, but I can't work out why you would need the former when the latter appears to do the same and more Neat Image For noise removal. So far I use this (the demo) rarely since I have to use it outside of photoshop elements (since the plugin feature on the demo limits what is possible with the shot) however as a part of the program I think it would certainly see more use since I do use normal noise removal as standard. This product comes in different packages and at the moment I am looking at the Pro + edition purchase options Even though the additional features (16bit editing and action support) are not really that applicable to elements editing (since 16bit is only sparingly supported and thus my work is done (for simplicity) in 8bit -- and actions are not present) it is future proofing the purchase should I make the move to full photoshop. I know that there are some other programs like this on the market (Noise Ninja comes to mind) but from what I have seen I don't think one is above the other in editing abilty. I would be gratefull for any input into these programs (or similar ones).
