Sometimes all it takes to lift your photo from the ordinary to the extraordinary
is a striking edge or border. Would a soft-edged vignette or a unique pattern
border take your image to the next level of dramatic impact? While there are
myriad software programs and plug-ins designed to add special effect edges,
borders and frames, you probably already have quite an array of possibilities
built into your current image-editing software. To get you started, here are
some effects that I created with Adobe Photoshop. You can use Elements for these,
as well. Earlier versions of these as well as other image-editing programs offer
many of the same effects. Now let's give some photos a new leading edge...

PhotoLynx, Inc. announces the release of ProofMyClass.com and ProofMyTeam.com. software that makes possible quick, accurate and inexpensive data and image validation.

Tim McCain, Sr. Vice Pres. of PhotoLynx, Inc. says, “For years school and sports photographers and digital imaging labs have been faced with the challenge of verifying names and images on class composites and other service items such as ID cards, principal pages, yearbook CDs and the many other products needed in the volume package market.  Now, with ProofMyClass.com and ProofMyTeam.com, the verification process can be much quicker, more accurate and less costly while at the same time reducing turnaround time.  ProofMyClass.com and ProofMyTeam.com, also, make significant contributions to the green cause by reducing hardcopy prints and shipping.”

The photographer or digital imaging lab uploads the images and data to the secure ProofMyClass.com or ProofMyTeam.com website where authorized individuals from the respective group, the school or league, access the information and make needed changes and corrections.  Once completed, the information is downloaded to the original database and the changes and corrections are automatically made and production can continue with updated accurate data associated with each image.

Additional information and a demonstration can be obtained by contacting Tim McCain, Tim@PhotoLynx.com or Paul Schulz, Paul@PhotoLynx.com.

Manfrotto
has announced a new line of carbon fiber tripods, dubbed "CX. "
The new CX family is highlighted by redesigned locking levers, new leg angle
selectors, and re engineered magnesium and aluminum castings. The new ergonomic
locking levers are much easier for shooters to operate and thanks to their new
design, become a seamless element of all CX tripods. Much like the aluminum
190XPROB, the new CX PRO models feature Manfrotto's innovative Q90°
(Quick Center Column System). The Q90° system allows the center column to
be rotated to a horizontal position with one simple motion, all without removing
the head or disassembling the column itself, making switching between framing
and positioning setups easier. Additionally, Manfrotto has redesigned the top
plate on 190CXPRO4 and190CXPRO3 tripods. The magnesium top plate on the CX PRO
series now incorporates a bubble to help aid in leveling the camera and tripod,
and has also been refined for a more attractive look. The redesign of the plate
also yields a significant reduction in weight.



In order to reach high-quality standards and high levels of performance, rigidity
and lightness, the new Manfrotto CX tubes are made of 100 percent carbon fiber.
When it comes to the use of composite materials-- especially carbon fiber --
in the manufacture of photographic supports, the end result can vary and ultimately
depends on the production process and the ratio of carbon fiber material to
epoxy present in the tubes. For its CX carbon fiber tripods, Manfrotto utilized
nothing other than 100 percent carbon fiber and employed pultrusion, pull winding
technology to manufacture the tubes. Pultrusion is a production process that
allows for the manufacture of carbon fiber tubes that excel in both flexion
resistance and torsion rigidity; features that matter most for camera support
applications.



The 190CXPRO4 and 190CXPRO3 feature all carbon fiber tubes, including a tri-faceted
center column, while the simpler CX3 version features carbon fiber tubes paired
with an aluminum center column and aluminum top plate.
