PMA, LAS VEGAS, Feb. 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Luminous Parrot Technologies
(http://www.luminousparrot.com), a leading developer of photo and video
software for digital camera users, today introduced its debut product,
Dream in Pictures, at PMA 2004. The software is designed to meet the varying
needs of digital imaging beginners, hobbyists and enthusiasts. Dream in
Pictures is downloadable software for the PC that provides people with
a powerful suite of tools and activities. It combines a unique and intuitive
interface, the most useful and popular image management and editing capabilities
as well as enjoyment features such as a creative slideshow builder, an
interactive 3-D art gallery, a fun photo mosaic builder, a challenging
picture puzzle game and a screensaver. It provides a fun, easy alternative
to the current array of photo-handling software packages available. For
the novice, Dream in Pictures is easy to use and understand. For more
experienced digital imaging enthusiasts, the simplicity of operation translates
into speed and power -- a must for those with large photo libraries.
"At Luminous Parrot Technologies, we believe that while digital cameras have grown increasingly more fun, powerful and easy to use, digital imaging software is getting more and more complicated," said Heidi Breslauer, president and founder, Luminous Parrot Technologies. "With Dream in Pictures, we help people find new and better ways to really enjoy their photos quickly without having to spend hours learning to use complicated software." The advantage of Dream in Pictures lies in its immediacy. Images go from digital camera to slideshow and 3-D art gallery in minutes. With Dream in Pictures, people can share their party photos at the party, rather than waiting until afterward. Grandparents can receive and view a slideshow within minutes of their grandchild's first steps. It makes digital imaging on the PC as fast, fun, and as easy as using the camera. In addition, Dream in Pictures preserves the main reason people love digital photography -- they want to share and enjoy their best pictures right away.
At the heart of Dream in Pictures is innovative technology that allows people to sort images, not only assigning a subject category to each photo or video file, but also an intuitive value rating that allows people to flag their best pictures. Once Dream in Pictures knows how the photos are valued, it can automate many of the activities commonly associated with digital photography, such as slideshow, emailing and album creation.
A Quick, Easy Way to Better Pictures
While performing this simple sorting operation, people can choose from a variety of options, starting with automatic or manual editing to enhance their pictures. For novices, Dream in Pictures provides a set of one-click editing tools such as image rotation and brightness, contrast and level correction. Advanced editing features enable people to correct a flawed photo with features such as zoom, red-eye fix, sharpen, brightness, contrast, adjust tint and free rotation.
Creativity and Fun for Everyone
Unique slideshow creation tools allow people to share their creativity
using photos, videos and audio files. While novices can take advantage
of easy, one-click slideshow creation, advanced features allow people
to add video and audio commentary or a soundtrack in the slideshow. A
video mark in and mark out feature ensures people are using the best possible
video segment. A freely-licensed, downloadable player and screensaver
will be available online so that people can play their Dream in Pictures
slideshows at work or share them with friends and family. In addition,
one click will print the slideshow as a beautiful photo album.
Dream in Pictures also lets people have fun with their photos with four different picture activities. There is a "walk-through" feature of the person's 3-D art gallery of photos and videos. In addition, Dream in Pictures provides a challenging picture-puzzle game and an advanced photo mosaic tool that uses small photos to create a larger image, both of which can be turned into personalized screensavers.
Now in the beta-testing phase, Dream in Pictures will be available in March as a "try-and-buy" software download.
