VICTORIA, British Columbia October 27, 2003 - ACD Systems International Inc. (TSX: ASA), the digital imaging company and makers of ACDSee and Canvas, today released ACD FotoCanvas 3.0, the newest version of its photo editing software program. ACD FotoCanvas is an affordable and easy-to-use program with all of the essential tools needed to enable users to make edits to their digital photos and create simple web graphics. New workflow enhancement features in ACD FotoCanvas 3.0 include the Dodge and Burn tool, the ability to add Bubble Talk to images, an easy step-by-step Photo Correction Wizard and a Professional Color Management system.
ACD FotoCanvas 3.0 quickly fixes digital photo lighting errors, such as lightening a persons face or darkening an outdoor image, with its Dodge and Burn tool. The new Bubble Talk and Thought Text features allow users to personalize their images with quotes or comic-strip effects. The easy step-by-step Photo Correction Wizard quickly guides users through a series of common photo editing and photo enhancing tasks. These include rotate, crop, sharpen, adjust color levels, red-eye reduction and fix color cast for removing unwanted hue from images.
Some of the additional new features of ACD FotoCanvas 3.0 include:
- Crop and Print to Standard Sizes - Crop to standard screen and print sizes such as 800 x 600 or 4 x 6. Print standard sizes or create custom print sizes and contact sheets.
