LayerShop offers up to 300 photo and design features for Photoshop
and Photoshop Elements for Windows. These features are available as new menu items, icons and dialogs, so they seamlessly integrate into the user interface of Photoshop (Elements). LayerShop upgrades Photoshop Elements with features of Photoshop and bridges the gap between Photoshop Elements and Photoshop. LayerShop also adds many new features to Photoshop. It works with Photoshop Elements 11 and higher as wells Photoshop CS3, CC and higher.
offers tools for performing the following tasks with the help
of multiple image files: Denoising
high ISO shots, Depth of Field Increase,
HDR creation, combining Light Trail
photos, preparing a manual composition, multiple exposure
effects, panorama stitching, object removal, underexposure fixing, removing details and increasing resolution.
There are even 10 action-like task items for doing these
things in an automated fashion.
also includes a Layer Comp panel for creating
and managing layer compositions and Features and Tasks panels for running many features conveniently. Even more,
there is a new Style Settings dialog similar to Photoshop's
Layer Styles dialog
with 5 new layer effects, 15 new blending controls
and 90 layer effect options.
LayerShop lets you open
multiple files as
layers and save each layer as a separate file
again. When opening only one file, exposure variations of
the same photo are automatically created for HDR production. It can also place all open images as layers into a single document, which is useful when using drag & drop or Lightroom for opening images.
offers multiple tools for working with multiple layers. The Auto-Align
feature aligns and repositions stacked as
well as panorama layers. The Auto-Blend tool
increases the depth of field and also stitches panoramas together.
The Auto-Expose tool denoises layers, creates
multiple exposure effects, combines light trails or night
shots and applies other blending effects. The HDR-Combine
feature automatically increases the dynamic range with the
help of up to three layers. It offers eight sliders for improving
the HDR look.
LayerShop feature 12 stack modes including 4 unique ones. The Remove Detail dialog lets you replace a selected area with real image data from other photos. Remove Moving Objects removes people and other moving objects from a series of photos. Super Resolution effectively resizes images by using multiple photos of the same scene. Denoise Layers combines clean pixels from multiple shots and Fix Underexposure brightens images while removing noise and restoring details. The new Fade / Blend Pro tools blend the previous history step or two layers with 36 new blend modes, opacity values up to 200% and many masking controls. Finally, the Crop Transparency
tool removes the transparent areas of stacked layers and panoramas,
which avoids the necessity of multiple manual cropping steps.
The Layer Comp panel lets you organize and quickly compare different designs or
effect variations within one document.
You can even automatically save each layer composition to
a separate file. The
new Style Settings dialog provides Blend If controls
for sophisticated masking results.
It also includes five new layer effects (Inner
Shadow, Satin, Color Overlay, Gradient Overlay and Pattern
Overlay) and adds 90 new options to all ten
layer effects. LayerShop allows using contours, patterns
and gradients for refining the look of the layer
effects. Gradients can even be edited and created with the
built-in gradient editor. Additionally you are now able to
load, edit and save .asl style files.
What Makes LayerShop
fully integrates into the user interface of Photoshop (Elements),
so it feels like an upgrade to Photoshop (Elements)
and not like a plugin. Other products that extend Photoshop
(Elements) consist of simple actions or are limited to a dialog
that blocks the user interface. So they are far less efficient,
easy to use and flexible than LayerShop.
is no other product that adds Open/Save/Place Layers commands, Auto-Expose, HDR-Combine, Fix Underexposure, Crop Transparency and Blend Pro features
options to Photoshop (Elements). Extending the layer styles of Photoshop Elements is also the unique domain of LayerShop.
