Adobe Systems Incorporated (Nasdaq:ADBE) today announced Adobe Photoshop CS4 and Photoshop CS4 Extended, the highly anticipated, new editions of the professional industry standard software for digital imaging. Providing a fluid user experience, complete creative control and higher efficiency, Photoshop CS4 leverages the power of the latest hardware to extend imaging possibilities and offer faster, more flexible ways to accomplish core tasks like image adjustments and masks. All of these features and more can be found in Photoshop CS4 Extended, which serves users with advanced motion graphics functions, dramatically expanded 3D visualization capabilities and precise image analysis.

Photoshop CS4 and Photoshop CS4 Extended will be available as stand-alone applications or key components of the Adobe Creative Suite® 4 family.

Photoshop CS4 software now makes impossible tasks, possible. Content-Aware Scaling adds a revolutionary technology that enables users to intelligently size and scale images with a simple drag of the mouse. New Auto-align and Auto-blend modes generate composites based on extended depth of field and 360 degree panoramas now with seamless tones and colors.

Finding, previewing and managing image assets jumps to a new level of power and convenience with Adobe Bridge CS4, beginning with fast start-up performance, right through to speedy transfer of images to Photoshop CS4. New path-bar navigation and workspace selection buttons across the top of the Bridge window let you instantly go to just the right display for every task. Also included are new Camera Import controls, visual folder navigation, and a Carousel View for larger image-group selections.

Photoshop CS4 takes advantage of the latest graphics processing unit (GPU) hardware to deliver superior performance. The software offers a smooth pan and zoom experience that allows users to easily edit images at the highest magnification while maintaining clarity. The new Canvas Rotation tool makes it simple to rotate and work on an image from any angle. Photoshop CS4 helps keep work areas clutter-free with a new unified application frame, tab-based interface and self-adjusting panels that make it easy to quickly access advanced tools, and provide a more fluid way to interact with the application.

Photoshop CS4 Extended includes all the new features of Photoshop CS4 plus the ability to manipulate 3D imagery easier than ever before. Now, creativity knows no bounds, as users can paint directly on 3D models and surfaces, merge 2-D files onto 3D images and animate 3D objects. The 3D engine has been rebuilt from the ground up to provide faster performance, allow editing of properties like light and the ability to create more realistic renderings with a new high-quality ray-tracer. Video professionals have the ability to turn any 3D object into a video display zone and can animate 3D objects and properties with ease. In addition, the core motion graphics editing has been improved with more efficient single-key shortcuts.

Photoshop CS4 Extended software continues to challenge traditional use, allowing medical professionals to volume render multiple medical image scans (DICOM image stack) into a volume that can be viewed from all angles.

The Photoshop product family has experienced an unprecedented year, in which new products have been introduced and every existing product has been updated. The year began with the anticipated launch of Photoshop Elements 6 for Mac, winning Best of Show at Macworld 2008. The launch of Photoshop Express in the Spring marked a new direction for the line — a free, rich Internet application (RIA) for anyone who wants to store, sort and show off digital photos online with eye-catching effects. In July, major updates and enhancements were made to the popular Photoshop Lightroom 2 solution for serious photographers, followed by the launch of Photoshop Elements 7 and Adobe Premiere Elements 7 software for hobbyists and now, Photoshop CS4 and Photoshop CS4 Extended for professionals.

Adobe Photoshop CS4 and Photoshop CS4 Extended for Mac OS X on Intel based and PowerPC based systems and for Microsoft Windows XP and Windows Vista platform are scheduled to ship October 2008 with availability through Adobe Authorized Resellers and the Adobe Store at www.adobe.com/go/gn_store . Estimated street price for Adobe Photoshop CS4 is US$699 and US$999 for Photoshop CS4 Extended. Upgrade pricing is available.

PictoColor today announced the release of iCorrect EditLab ProApp 6.0 color correction
software. iCorrect EditLab ProApp offers serious photographers a simplified approach
to color correction and color editing for large volume workflows. When asked,
most professional photographers and photo enthusiasts say that one of the most
time consuming parts of their digital workflow is getting the color right. With
its highly-acclaimed technology, smartly arranged tools, and workflow enhancing
features, iCorrect EditLab ProApp will save hours and minimize the frustration
of making color adjustments so photographers can spend less time in front of the
computer and more time behind the camera.



At the heart of iCorrect EditLab ProApp is the new ProcessQ, a completely redesigned
image queue that allows photographers to easily view, sort, and manage their color
corrections for more efficient, time-saving workflows. After images are added
to ProcessQ, the entire collection is displayed as thumbnails at the bottom of
the main panel. With ProcessQ, users can step through and correct and save any
number of images - either one at a time or as an entire group. Adjustments can
even be synchronized across multiple images almost instantly for rapid fire batch
processing.



For photographers looking for an easier way to make the color right, iCorrect
EditLab Pro offers an intuitive, straight-forward tool set. iCorrect EditLab ProApp
consists of four separate tools logically arranged from left to right providing
a wizard-like approach to accurate color. The tools are designed in such a way
that as photographers progress from left to right, adjustments made with one tool
will not, and in fact, cannot be affected by any of the tools to its right. This
alleviates the common frustration of correcting for one thing while throwing off
another. With iCorrect EditLab ProApp, one pass through the tools and that's
it. Plus, each tool has an optional SmartColor feature which analyzes the image
and adjusts the settings to their initial recommended settings.



For digital photo purists who want to take full advantage of all the benefits
of RAW capture, iCorrect EditLab ProApp is said to be the perfect complement to
any RAW conversion software. It simplifies enhanced color adjustments with intuitive,
easy-to-use tools that eliminate the frustration of fine tuning images for final
presentation. After converting RAW image files with a favorite converter, photographers
can add that extra punch more quickly and easily with iCorrect EditLab ProApp's
unique wizard-like tool set.



For photographers looking to add creative artistic effects, iCorrect EditLab ProApp's
advanced technology makes black-and-white conversions and sepia tones easier than
ever before. iCorrect EditLab ProApp's unique approach allows users to control
how the colors map to gray scale as well as selectively retain certain colors
of the original image for stunning results.



Pricing and Availability

iCorrect EditLab ProApp 6.0 may be purchased at PictoColor's on-line store
at www.pictocolor.com for an introductory price of $99.95 as a software download.
