Bibble 5 Box Art

As mentioned earlier on our Twitter feed, today we got our hands on the first Bibble 5 boxes to be printed. Here are a few pictures of the new boxes. They’re more compact and have a much cleaner design than the Bibble 4 boxes did and I think they really turned out great.

I’ve uploaded larger versions to my Flickr stream.

Perfectly Clear Teaser

We've been hard at work on version 5.1, and one of the headline features we're going to be including in this (free) update is Perfectly Clear - the one-touch image optimization tool from our friends at Athentech. They have a great page explaining the image science behind their unique correction algorithms, so instead of going into that, let's just take a look at some before/after examples using Perfectly Clear inside Bibble in our latest development version of Bibble 5.1 Pro.

For all these shots, the only difference in the left (Bibble Default) images and the right (Perfectly Clear) is that for the image on the right, the Perfectly Clear adjustment was turned on - literally a single mouse click!

This first shot is a typical example of the results you can get out of Perfectly Clear in Bibble 5.1 with just one click. There is so much additional detail in the stones on the right of the doorway, and such an additional sense of depth to the scene.

New Plugin Directory

This weekend, we updated bits and pieces of our webpages, and added a new and much-needed Plugin Directory.

The directory (part of which is shown to the right) allows you to find the amazing work being done by the folks out there, creating cool new image adjustment tools for Bibble 5.

The directory allows you to sort by popularity, recent updates or with the newest plugins shown first. It also categorized the plugins to help you find the kinds of image adjustments you are looking for, and allows you to quickly see all the plugins created by a particular developer.

A major update to our plugin framework will be released with Bibble 5.1 which will allow for even more powerful and innovative plugins for Bibble 5 - so stay tuned as we get closer to the release of 5.1 for more info on these new plugins.
