    Has anyone tried these plugins with Photoshop? Are they worth the price?

    I've used the Digital ROC with good success. I scanned a number of family
    photos (negatives, slides and prints) that had faded and/or developed color
    casts. It works on about 90% of the issues I had to deal with.

    If you're in the same situation, I'd recommend it.

    As to Digital SHO, if you're using Photoshop CS (highly recommended if you
    do a lot of digital photography/imaging), then the highlight/shadow feature
    does the same. Haven't used this one (as I have Photoshop CS), but several
    friends report good results under PS 7.

    Thanks for your reply.

    Do you know how Digital ROC actually operates on images? In my testing,
    I've noticed no abberations (blank spots) in the histogram after using it.
    I have to assume that it does things that levels, curves and hue/saturation
    cannot do.

    From my reading, it basically analyzes images for certain color casts,
    contrast, etc. and makes the appropriate adjustments. All of this can be
    done using levels, curves, etc., but this plugin simply does all of the
    adjustments w/o opening up levels, curves, etc.

    You can use levels, curves, etc to achieve the same result, but this plug in
    just does it for you - i.e. less pain and frustration.

    gem and ice etc work in the Summer 2004 edition of Better Photography
