In response to the economic climate, ExpressDigital has announced a significant instant rebate and marketing campaign surrounding their DARKROOM workflow software solution. According to Graham McFarland, founder and CEO, “We have always been inspired by the professional photographer and understand that simplifying ways for them to increase business and profits is more important than ever.”

The campaign is three-fold with the largest component being the authorization and coordination of a significant instant rebate of both DARKROOM Professional and Core editions via authorized dealers for a limited time (between two and four months depending on response). In many cases, the instant rebate results in a 30% price slash. Continues McFarland, “Right now we have to reduce the issue of cost as much as possible but also serve the emerging or veteran professional photographer by giving them the tools they need to succeed.” The company contends that the features of the workflow software – which includes, but is not limited to, greenscreen technology, free calendar, card, picture and memory mate templates, template creation tools, photo repair features, proof wizards, instant printing locally or to a lab, and built-in camera and printer drivers – are critical to the professional digital photographer wanting to remain competitive and profitable.

Other aspects of the campaign include an entirely new website for DARKROOM (www.DarkroomSoftware.com) that offers online training and streamlined understanding of the software’s functionality and the launch of social media websites to encourage interactivity and facilitate contests via Yahoo!Forums, Twitter and Facebook. As a result, the new website and supporting newsletter will advertise cues on how and when anyone can win free software and other prizes on a monthly basis along with photography inspired interviews, reviews and workflow tips.

Wacom Technology Corp. has announced two new members to the Cintiq family --
the Cintiq 12WX and Cintiq 20WSX. The Cintiq 12WX combines all the advantages
and power of direct pen-on-screen input with a new low-profile, lightweight and
flexible design. The new Cintiq 12WX is aimed at professional creators of digital
content looking to improve and streamline their workflow. Storyboarding for 2D
or 3D animations, compositing for post production, designing graphics, as well
as retouching photos are just a few of the many creative applications where the
Cintiq 12WX will excel.



Also joining Wacom's Cintiq lineup is the Cintiq 20WSX, the world's
first wide-format desktop pen display. Combining the the same design elements
and ergonomic enhancements as the Cintiq 21UX, Wacom's latest wide-format
pen display is ideal for those who prefer to work with a 16:10 aspect ratio and
may not require the increased resolution of the 21UX.
