UMAX Technologies, Inc. has announced the availability of SilverFast HDR and SilverFast
HDR Studio for its full line of UMAX scanners. SilverFast HDR enables users to
process images at 48-bit full dynamic range.



The four upgrade and purchase options are:



1. SilverFast Ai upgrade to SilverFast HDR: This offer is only good for existing
SilverFast Ai UMAX users and is available for $199.00.

2. SilverFast SE upgrade to SilverFast HDR: This offer is only good for existing
SilverFast SE UMAX users and is available for $250.00.

3. SilverFast HDR full version new purchase: Retail is $299.00.

4. SilverFast HDR Studio full version new purchase: Retail is $499.00 and comes
with IT8 color calibration and pocket target



Prior to SilverFast HDR, many of today's scanners did not allow the ability to
write the full dynamic range into TIFF-data, making the reduction to 24-bit RGB
obsolete. Scanners with only 30- or 36-bit capability save up to their maximum
output, but today's leading scanning software, such as PhotoShop, saves
images down to a 24-bit file, discarding the extra information supplied from the
scanner. SilverFast HDR and HDR Studio software gives users the ability to save
and edit 'raw' files in full 48-bit resolution. 48-bit editing opens up a whole
new workflow, enabling images to be scanned and archived into digital format,
and then accessed later without any loss of quality.



SilverFast HDR and HDR Studio allow for raw data processing enables color corrections
in 48-bit. In this extremely large color space no significant shade is lost during
image corrections. When all corrections are done the image can be saved into 48-bit
again and further corrections can be done later.Instead of driving the scanner
directly, SilverFast HDR enables the user to read these raw files and process
the data as if they had access to the original image on the scanner. SilverFast
Scan Type (Image Type in HDR) offers 48-bit Color and 16-bit Grayscale. While
48-bit HDR color scans into an uncorrected 48-bit raw data file (only gamma correction
and ICC-matching can be applied), 48-bit Color or 16-bit Grayscale allows users
to save all corrections into the raw data file (48- or 16-bit Tiff file). It is
also possible to scan directly into Photoshop using the image corrected in high
bit mode.



SilverFast also offers a full set of tools including the ability to define output
size, Auto-Adjust, Histogram, Gradation curves, Selective Color Correction, Unsharp
Masking, Color Separation, and CMYK-Preview.



SilverFast accelerates the processing of large files in real-time, even greater
than 500MB, without delay. Files that have been scanned with SilverFast Ai and
subsequently opened in HDR will have the HiRePP functionality (High Resolution
Picture Performance). SilverFast HDR Studio is an enhanced version of SilverFast
HDR and adds even more power by including Auto Adaptive Contrast Optimization,
SilverFast PhotoProof, a cloning tool, unsharp mask Plus, automatic image import
with renaming functions, conversion of RAW data and JPEG 2000 support.



Additionally, free copies of Taz Tally's Official Guide to SilverFast Ai
6.0 will be included with any upgrade or purchase from UMAX.com for the first
30 days from today.

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.
