Ulead Image Editing Expertise
Since its founding in 1989, Ulead has developed image editing software that has evolved from simple hardware companions such as iPhoto and La Palette, to full-fledged image editing programs such as PhotoStyler and PhotoImpact. With its launch in 1991, PhotoStyler was the first true color image processing software to take full advantage of Windows 3.0. In 1994, PhotoImpact became known as the first image editing program to offer Web graphics tools for creating Internet-ready optimized images and Web animations. Now with PhotoImpact XL, Ulead is the only company to offer extensive and powerful tools for digital photography, graphic creation, and Web design in the sub $100 image editing category. Ulead continues to be a trailblazer in the image editing space as one of the first companies to offer mobile phone image editing software in Asia and Europe.
