Bibble Labs 4.9.5 out in the wild

The new Bibble Labs 4.9.5 is out with support for new cameras and six plugins! I purchased Bibble 4.9 a few months ago so i must download the upgrade shortly and give it a spin.

Among the free plugins included in this update are Andy, a Black & White Film Simulation tool that instantly creates stunning black and white conversions by simulating the look of many traditional film and paper combinations, Gina for Skin Tone Correction that can quickly and beautifully reveal more natural skin tones, and Roy for Color Adjustment to deepen the blue in skies or to make other color-based adjustments. Other plugins included can be be used for selective saturation enhancement, multi-zone exposure adjustment and novel image toning.

Bibble Labs works really well but I know I’m not using it to it’s fullest functionality yet. I do most of my editing and even some colour correction in the GIMP afterwards. I have no quibbles about the output from Bibble however. Images come out looking great and there are a load of sliders to adjust the minutest thing.

One thing that *really* annoys me is how unstable the Save as Jpeg is. I thought it was simply taking a while occasionally but I left it for half an hour once and the whole application had frozen. It may be related to the thumbnail creation process which is worth leaving run through the current directory of images.

I haven’t tried the new version yet, but I’m looking forward to trying the added plugins. They’re not “full versions” but they’re still interesting. I presume they’ll work on Linux too, hopes anyway!

You could always download the trial version! It’s fully functioning for 30 days!
