Epson Announces Availability of PRINT Image Matching II Plug-in for Adobe Photoshop
P.I.M. II Plug-in Enables Photoshop Users to Get Best Possible Prints from their Digital Camera
Epson America Inc. today announced the availability of a PRINT Image Matching II (P.I.M. II) plug-in for Adobe(R) Photoshop(R) 7.0, 6.0, and Photoshop Elements 1.0 and 2.0 for Macintosh and Windows operating systems. The new plug-in enables Adobe Photoshop users who own a P.I.M. II-enabled digital camera and P.I.M. II-enabled Epson photo printer to take advantage of the print matching and automatic benefits offered by PRINT Image Matching technology to create the best possible prints quickly and easily.
The P.I.M. II plug-in allows users to import JPEG files containing P.I.M. or P.I.M. II information into Adobe Photoshop and print them with the color, quality and detail that PRINT Image Matching technology provides. The plug-in was designed to be flexible, giving users multiple options: a user can either import with P.I.M. II, import Exif 2.2 images with Exif Print technology, a new standard for digital cameras published by the Japan Electronics and Information Technology Industries Association (JEITA); or, the interface allows users to import an image with color expansion information only while disregarding other image enhancements for flexible print matching control.
"P.I.M. technology continues to have a significant impact on the growing digital imaging market," said Fabia Ochoa, product manager, photo imaging, Epson. "The availability of the P.I.M. II plug-in furthers Epson's pursuit to provide the ultimate photo printing solutions for consumers looking to print the best prints possible from their photo printer."
