Digimarc Corporation (NASDAQ: DMRCE) today announced the public beta of Digimarc
Image Search, an innovative desktop search tool designed for the rapidly growing
digital photography market.



The free tool, downloadable from Digimarc's website at www.digimarc.com/mypicturemarc/imagesearch,
works in conjunction with popular desktop search tools such as Google Desktop
Search, MSN Desktop Search, and Yahoo! Desktop Search, enhancing the image search
capabilities of these tools. Current desktop search tools have limited image search
capabilities, typically looking for the file name in the header of an image, which
can be easily changed or forgotten. Most professional and many consumer photographs
are distributed today in digital form with an extensive array of associated information
or "metadata" carried within the image files.



Digimarc Image Search works with and extends existing desktop search tools by
enabling users to more quickly and effectively find images stored on a computer
based on such information or "metadata" embedded into digital images,
including keywords, copyright information and digital rights data; and identify
image copyright holders and facilitate image licensing by accessing Internet services,
where available, that connect to an image owner's website or Digimarc's
image registry, which is available to users of Digimarc MyPictureMarc and ImageBridge
digital watermarking software.



This beta release supports web updates for images from the Corbis stock photography
library and for all other images that use Digimarc digital watermarking products.




Digital photography is often digitally watermarked by its owners using Digimarc
software for a variety of purposes, including copyright protection, facilitation
of licensing, and the monitoring of Internet marketing programs. The Digimarc
software enables users to embed an imperceptible digital watermark that identifies
the image's owner and registers that image in the Digimarc online registry.
For images with embedded digital watermarks, Digimarc Image Search can retrieve
current and dynamic information about the pictures from Internet resources; for
example, identification of the owner of rights to facilitate licensing or additional
keywords to improve search results. More information on Digimarc digital imaging
products can be found at: www.digimarc.com/mypicturemarc.



Availability

Digimarc Image Search Beta is available now as a free download at www.digimarc.com/mypicturemarc/imagesearch. ...

Alien Skin Software has announced the immediate availability of Blow Up 2.0.3, the new version of its photo resizing plug-in for Adobe Photoshop and Photoshop Elements.  Blow Up 2.0.3 is a free update for owners of Blow Up 2.0.0 or later.  Simply installing the latest demo of Blow Up from the Alien Skin Software Web site will upgrade an existing installation of Blow Up 2 to version 2.0.3.

Blow Up 2.0.3 comes with two Photoshop CS4 panels that are accessed in the Window->Extensions menu.  These panels can be moved and docked just like Photoshop’s built-in panels, such as the Layers palette.  The first of these is the Startup Panel which makes common output sizes and paper types available with a single click.  The Startup Panel can also start Blow Up’s full interface with a single click rather than navigating into Photoshop’s menus.

The other Photoshop CS4 panel installed with Blow Up 2.0.3 is the Gallery Wrap Panel.  This panel prepares images for printing on canvas that is stretched around the outside of a wood frame.  This popular mounting technique requires extending an image to cover the sides of the frame, which can be a confusing and tedious process.  The Gallery Wrap Panel provides full control over this process while taking care of all the technical details.  The resulting image is ready to send to professional printing companies such as APC (http://artisticphotocanvas.com).
