Perfectly Clear Wins Hot One Award—08.06.15

Professional Photographer magazine selects Perfectly Clear Photoshop Plug-in as the pros’ top choice in Retouching for the 2015 Hot One Awards.

Calgary, Canada, (August 6, 2015) – Professional Photographer magazine announced that the Perfectly Clear Photoshop Plug-in was chosen as the top retouching product in the industry in the 16th annual Hot One Awards.

From hundreds of entries, a panel of professional photographers named their top choice among dozens of photography products and services. The awards are highlighted in the August issue of Professional Photographer.

“We’re thrilled to receive this award,” said Brad Malcolm, President of Athentech Imaging Inc. “Our team spent the last few years re-engineering our technology to make this our fastest, most powerful automatic image correction yet. So it’s really gratifying to see those improvements appreciated by the pros. Big thanks to the panel of judges and to Professional Photographer magazine for including us among this year’s award winners.”

“The winners of the 2015 Hot One Awards represent the pros’ choice of the year’s photographic products,” says Professional Photographer Senior Editor Joan Sherwood. “The Hot Ones recognize excellence in professional products as judged by the pros who use them. As talented as photographers can be, they still have to rely on their gear, software, professional services, and the products they sell. Their choices for the Hot Ones give our readers a list of worthy winners to consider for themselves.”

The Hot One Awards have provided Professional Photographer readers with a resource of the newest, most innovative products available in a variety of price ranges. Readers are treated to a resource compiled by independent, practicing professional photographers, selected for their expertise and knowledge. This year’s independent panel of 35 judges voted on products that ranged from cameras and lenses to albums and displays. They made their selections based on overall quality, innovation, design, performance, and value for the price.
