Bibble Labs Releases 4.8 version with Advanced Lens Correction and B&W / Spot Color Plugin
Other improvements include Fujifilm S3 Pro support and a Mac Universal Binary
AUSTIN TX, (June 23, 2006) - Bibble Labs, Inc. today announces the general availability of Bibble Pro and Bibble Lite Upgrade 4.8. This free upgrade is available to existing Bibble 4 license holders, and represents the third such major upgrade of 2006. New features in this release include a redesigned and more powerful Lens Correction tool enabling correction of barrel and pin-cushion distortion, as well as chromatic aberration and vignetting.
A new plugin is also distributed with the application to allow robust Black and White conversion, including an innovative Spot Color feature. “With this plugin, users can create Black and White images quickly, controlling which color channels affect the B&W value, with much more granularity than simple desaturation. This plugin also works in conjunction with our powerful color manipulation tools, providing complete control over the B&W conversion process,” says Eric Hyman, president and CEO of Bibble Labs. “Further, our novel Spot Color feature within the plugin allows for creative effects not available in any other RAW Workflow tool.”
Continuing Bibble Labs’ trend of broad camera support, the 4.8 update adds support for additional cameras, including the Fujifilm S3 Pro and Panasonic LX1, and includes Tethered Shooting support for Fujifilm S2 Pro and S3 Pro cameras (on Windows only).
Bibble was one of the first RAW Workflow tools to offer a native Intel Mac package, and now 4.8 is available as a Mac Universal Binary. Further optimization for Intel Mac’s results in even faster conversion times for these platforms, and better memory management offers performance enhancements to Windows, Mac, and Linux users.
Bibble Labs is committed to its customers, and 4.8 includes many additions and changes requested by its growing userbase. “We believe in building relationships with our customers, and listen closely to what they have to say. The direction of 4.8 was greatly influenced by our customers, as they - more that anyone - know what is needed to make the best RAW Workflow tool,” says Hyman. “Full Unicode support in IPTC fields is a great example of this, as well as constant improvements of image quality and conversion speed. We have a history of making these upgrades available as quickly as possible, at no cost to current customers.”
Bibble is available in both "Pro" ($129.95) and "Lite" ($69.95) versions for Windows, Macintosh (PPC/Intel) and Linux. Please visit our web site at http://www.bibblelabs.com for further details and to download a fully functional 14 day trial version.
Be sure to visit us at WPPI 2006 in the Precision Camera (#208) or Kodak Booth (#357) to see this unique workflow in action.
