Laminar Pro – Image Editor – Updated – Now With Iris Filters

You may recall we announced the new version of Iris Photo Suite recently, being Laminar Pro. The problem with it was that the filters that users loved in Iris had not been ported over to Laminar Pro. Well now they have, in this latest update, Grunge/ Vintage/ LoFi filters are now part of the vintage section on Laminar. The Grunge frames, are part of set of border frames in Laminar. Also they have added back the ColorBalance control, it can be accessed as Edit -> Filters ->ColorBalance. As well as that in Blur/Sharpen added ZoomBlur.

There was also a crash issue in the save routine and this has now been cleared up as well as a few other bug fixes. This is a free update, if you have previously downloaded Iris. If not you can install Laminar Pro here. It retails for $4.99/£2.99/download.

    So there is no need for Iris if you get Laminar Pro?

    Is there any difference?
