One year after the announcement of the IMAGELINK print system -- a specification
designed to simplify at-home picture printing -- new cameras and printers
supporting the standard are being released. Joining a host of KODAK EASYSHARE
cameras and printer docks already released this year, Olympus has announced the
Camedia C315 zoom digital camera, the D555 zoom digital camera and ILP-100 printer
dock which are all IMAGELINK compatible.



"The IMAGELINK print system is one of the world's most important digital
photography advancements for consumers and we at Olympus are very pleased to be
among the first to introduce products compatible with this system," said
Mr. Bang Il Seok, director, Marketing Division Manager of Olympus Imaging Corp.




Millions of consumer digital cameras from Eastman Kodak Company, Konica Minolta
Photo Imaging, Inc., Nikon Corporation, Olympus Corporation, Pentax Corporation,
Ricoh Co., Ltd. and Sanyo Electric Co., Ltd. will provide effortless, one-touch
picture printing from snapshot printers that incorporate the IMAGELINK print system,
including new KODAK EASYSHARE printer docks.



A consumer Web site dedicated to the IMAGELINK print system went live earlier
this year. The site -- www.imagelinkprintsystem.com
-- includes links to compatible digital camera and printer information, an
animated presentation to help people visualize the camera-printer connection,
frequently asked questions and news related to the specification.

Olympus has announced that it is developing a new interchangeable-lens digital SLR (single lens reflex) within the Olympus E-System lineup. This new Four Thirds-compliant camera reinforces the company’s commitment to the standard.

Positioned as a mid-level model, this new digital SLR camera is intended for anyone who wants to express their creativity through photography, whether they are just starting out or are a professional with years of experience behind them. Introduction of the new camera is expected in the first quarter of 2009.

At the last Photokina (September 2006), Olympus declared that the second chapter in the story of the Olympus E-System would begin in 2007. One of the highlights of this chapter was the incorporation of “Full-Time Live View” function as a standard function for the first time in the industry, adding to the excitement already generated by other distinctive features of the E-System such as the “100 percent Digital-Dedicated Design” and “Dust Reduction System.” Currently, the E-System lineup includes popular models such as the E-420 and E-520, as well as the flagship E-3. All of these cameras provide digital SLR users with the high-quality images, superior reliability and exceptional portability they need.

The prototype model displayed at Photokina is being developed as an advanced amateur model that will be positioned between the E-520 and E-3. In terms of quality and performance, however, there is nothing mid-level about this model. It will inherit all the outstanding features of the E-3 such as the high-speed autofocus system using an 11-point full twin-cross sensor and the built-in image stabilization mechanism with a correction effect of up to 5 EV steps1. Other highlights will include a new and updated feature to replace the current splash and dustproof function of the E-3.


With the introduction of this new camera, Olympus will expand its line of Four Thirds System-compliant digital SLR cameras, providing a wider range of choices to a wider range of users from serious amateurs to professionals.

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).
