Press Release:

Build Stunning, Auto-Scaling Photo Albums for the Web

Fookes Software has released Easy Imager 2.0, a powerful Windows application that makes it easy to display, manage, and batch-process images in all popular formats, and produce photo albums to suit every browser. Other photo album programs limit you to setting display sizes that may not suit other users' Web browser settings: Easy Imager's integrated Zoomify technology does away with squinting at tiny images or scrolling around oversized pictures by displaying high-resolution images automatically scaled to the user's browser window.

Easy Imager's elegant interface makes it a snap to find your images and select them for processing individually, in batches or in whole folders using a thumbnail-based file selector. You can use slider controls to rotate images and adjust their contrast, brightness, color, sharpness, and quality, and check out the results with a convenient built-in viewer.

If you're a digital-photography enthusiast, you'll appreciate features like one-click picture rotation, image sharpening in batches, date-stamping images, and reducing picture sizes for the Web or email. You can also create professional-looking digital photo albums complete with thumbnail indexes in minutes, using a wide variety of options to control their appearance. If you create a Zoomify album for the Web you'll no longer need to scale down your photos: your site visitors will be able to see them at their best without making large downloads.

Easy Imager also provides tools to convert images to other file formats, print text on pictures, capture screen shots, import pictures from TWAIN devices and the Clipboard, change your Desktop Wallpaper, search for images, and associate text descriptions with pictures.

You can configure the program extensively to suit the way you work: you can customize the toolbar to include your most-used tools, assign your own keyboard shortcuts to menu items, and set numerous preferences for the handy Live Spelling feature.

New features in version 2.0 include integrated support for the innovative Zoomify image format (www.zoomify.com), easy creation of full screen slide-shows and slide-show screensavers with professional transition effects, the ability to view image histograms, and support for stereoscopic 3D JPEG images (.JPS) and wireless bitmap images (.WBMP).

Whether you're a serious photographer who needs to create professional Web albums with images scaled to the viewer's display, a hobbyist who wants to create exceptional albums of your family, sports team, or travels, or a business person who wants to provide clients and prospects with attention-grabbing product shots, Easy Imager has the tools you need.

Easy Imager 2.0 runs under Windows 95/98/Me/NT4/2000/2003/XP, costs $34.95(US) for a single-user license, and may be purchased securely online at http://www.fookes.com/ezimager/. Multi-user and site licenses are available. You can download a free, fully-functional trial version from the same web site.
