Infinite Retouching Panel Launches Compatibility for Apple M1 Devices

After months of research and development, Pratik Naik and the team at Infinite Tools have released an update to the Infinite Retouch Panel that supports Apple Silicon M1 versions of Adobe Photoshop.

This action and extension panel may not be the first to be released for the M1 system, but according to the company, it is the first one for retouchers made by people who know retouching.

“At the heart of it, you can select a group of layers and simply save them to use every time you hit ‘Create,'” Naik says. “For retouching, we have a range of dodge and burn, frequency separation methods, and help layers — to name a few — to help you during each step of the process. Not to mention all of our helper layers to expedite the process further.”

Naik also says that the user section allows for further customization and the ability to save more layer sets.

“And that’s just the start of the options,” he continues. “The vision was to have a clean and beautiful panel that fits perfectly within Photoshop. It should work no matter what type of work you’re doing and what methods you use to retouch. It truly fits perfectly within any workflow in the most elegant package we could create.”

The updated Infinite Retouch includes many bug fixes and updates to performance on top of the new support for Apple M1 devices. Some of these improvements include the ability to customize a tool and tool presets after a button is pressed, such as what method of frequency separation is desired and what layer is selected after it is run, and what tool Photoshop selects once it is finished.

It also adds the ability to create “user layers” which give users the ability to set up their own workflow instead of using the system default which includes user-created actions as well as the addition of 11 “help” layers that Naik and his team say are among the most used by the retouching industry professionals. All of the updates are supported in multiple languages including English, Spanish, German, and French with more being worked on for future updates.

Thanks to the M1 chipset, the new versions of these tools and panels promise to be much faster on Apple’s latest devices. While editors will still have to manually complete retouching tasks, the layers and tools created in the actions are reportedly near-instantaneous when clicked. If so, this update alone is reason enough for retouchers who have to work on so many files that every single second counts when approaching a deadline.

The panel updates add improvements for faster exporting, improved image sharpening, and customizable grain tools. The M1 version of Infinite Retouch also adds the company’s own “Holy Grain” to the mix, which is a collection of high-resolution film scans with various grains. For each film type, users can adjust the slider to decide on the grain size, amount, and individual lens artifacts or flaws to include for the most realistic look possible.

The Infinite Retouch Panel retails for $129 but was currently discounted by 25% at the time of publication. A “limited” free trial is also available for those who want to try the Panel before buying.

The Razer Blade 14 is a Powerhouse Laptop with an Impressive Display

Razer has announced that after a three-year hiatus, it has brought back its powerhouse 14-inch laptop that packs raw computing capability and display performance into an extremely thin chassis. It is also the first Razer Blade ever to feature an AMD processor, the 8-core Ryzen 9 5900HX.

Razer touts the Razer Blade 14 as a “14-inch powerhouse” of a laptop that combines that AMD processor with an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 laptop GPU and maximum 1440p Quad HD 165Hz display into a thin body that measures just 0.66 x 8.66 x 12.59 inches. Razer says this is the world’s smallest 14-inch gaming laptop currently available.

And while the Razer Blade 14 is marketed primarily as a gaming device — hence its announcement at E3 and the fact it offers “one of a king” per-key Razer Chroma RGB backlighting — it has several features that make it a compelling buy for photographers and videographers as well.

The Razer Blade 14 marks the “revival” of the laptop line through a new partnership with AMD, which the company says culminates in a powerful laptop that takes advantage of the AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX 8-core, 16-thread processor that has a max boost clock of up to 4.6GHz to “quickly dispatch dense workloads.” Razer specifically says that it will be able to reduce latency when it comes to gaming, but also notes that it will be able to tackle demanding professional workloads extremely quickly. The company also claims that it can perform at a top-tier level while still offering up to 12 hours of battery life.

The laptop can be outfitted with a choice of options from the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3000 series laptop GPUs: 3060, 3070, and 3080.

While raw computing power is important for quickly processing photos and videos, the quality of the display is arguably more important. To that end, the Blade 14 offers what Razer is calling the fastest 14-inch displays on the market, which offers the choice between a Full HD 144Hz or a Quad HD 165Hz IPS display. Photographers are likely to lean for the higher resolution display, but Razer promises the Full HD model will hit up to 100 percent of sRGB and the 1440p model can hit up to 100 percent of DCI-P3 and both come from the factory custom calibrated.

The Razer Blade 14 also ships with a 720p webcam, an IR sensor for login, and dual THX Spatial Audio speakers on either side of the keyboard. It also includes two USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C ports with lower power delivery (for charging in a pinch) and two USB 3.2 Gen 2 type-A ports for connecting “legacy” items. It also has an HDMI 2.1 port and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

The Razer Blade 14 is available immediately from Razer.com and starts at $1,800 for the base RTX 3060 and Full HD display model and up to $2,800 for the fully-kitted RTX 3080 and Quad HD display version.
