onOne Software, Inc. has announced Plug-in Suite 4 software for Adobe Photoshop.
Available in early May, onOne Software's Plug-In Suite 4 combines full versions
of six essential software tools -- Genuine Fractals 5 Print Pro, PhotoTools
1.0 Professional Edition, PhotoFrame 3.1 Professional Edition, Mask Pro 4.1, PhotoTune
2.2 and FocalPoint 1.0 -- an affordable combination that includes everything
a photographer needs to make their images look their best.



The onOne Software Plug-In Suite 4 for Photoshop CS2 and CS3 is the latest upgrade
to the award winning Plug-In Suite product line that combines several of onOne
Software's individual Photoshop plug-ins into a highly affordable package.

Plug-In Suite 4 includes full versions of the following onOne Software products:



· Genuine Fractals 5 Print Pro can resize digital images over 1,000% with
no loss of detail or sharpness. It allows poster-sized prints to be made from
almost any image.



· PhotoTools 1.0 Professional Edition is a flexible yet powerful Photoshop
plug-in that utilizes the power of Photoshop Actions to provide a complete library
of effects created by Kevin Kubota and Jack Davis. These effects may be previewed,
stacked and blended together just like filters over a camera lens to improve creativity.
Its built-in batch processing engine improves photographers productivity.



· PhotoFrame 3.1 Professional Edition can be used to create stunning border
and edge effects right out of the darkroom. Select from thousands of edges, including
authentic film and artistic mediums.



· Mask Pro 4.1 can easily create high-quality masks and selections even
from tough subjects like hair and glass, making it easy to place a subject in
a new background.



· PhotoTune 2.2 is a plug-in that provides professional quality color correction
in an easy to use plug-in.



· FocalPoint 1.0 is a new plug-in that simulates selective focus or tilt-shift
lenses, helping photographers selectively blur and/or vignette an image to focus
the viewers attention.



The new Plug-In Suite 4 will be available in early May to new users for $499.95
-- a savings of $799.75 if purchased separately. Existing users of Plug-in
Suite version 1, 2 or 3 can upgrade to Plug-In Suite 4 for only $199.95. Customers
who own any one or more of the products in Plug-In Suite 4 will be able to upgrade
as well. For more information on the Plug-In Suite 4, please visit http://www.ononesoftware.com.

As part of its campaign to `Defend the Darkroom', Ilford Photo
- the monochrome brand of Harman technology Limited -- has announced a

manufacturers and stocking dealers. However, to help ULF users overcome this
limited availability, as well as the need to purchase a minimum order quantity,
Ilford Photo has revealed it is running a two month ULF product ordering window.

I took this photo while in New York City with my family in the spring of 2007. I like this image because the old buildings are reflected in the glass of the new building--the past reflected in the present.

Peleman Industries, Inc., manufacturer of the Unibind binding, lamination and
presentation product line, announced today the launch of WWAOW.com (pronounced
"WOW!"), the first low-cost self-publishing service for creating high-quality
hard or soft cover books, documents, and manuals online at http://www.wwaow.com.




Short for "Worldwide Association of Writers," WWAOW is a revolutionary
online service that opens the market to everyone to publish their own high-quality
books "on demand" for only $79 for 5 books -- no long-term commitments,
sign-up fees, or service contracts are required. Authors simply agree to purchase
the first five copies of their books for $79.



Created by Peleman Industries, the award-winning company with a 69-year history
of binding high-quality books, WWAOW gives everyone, including fiction and non-fiction
writers, speakers, schools, corporations, and government groups, etc., the opportunity
to instantly print editions of their own books, manuals or catalogs on an "as
needed" basis.



Instant Publishing -- No Shipping or Invoices

Within minutes of uploading a book to WWAOW, the order is placed in the system
for printing and the book is instantly posted for sale online at WWAOW.com. Authors
earn royalties with every sale. They can choose their royalty percentage of up
to a 20 percent royalty of the book's retail value, calculated based upon
the book's number of pages and cover type. There is no need for authors
to pay for storing, shipping, or invoicing books.



Key Features of WWAOW.com:



· Priced starting at $79 vs. competitors at $499. Competitors also often
require the purchase of marketing, graphics, and editing services.

· The price of a hard cover book is about the same as a soft cover (only
about $1 more).

· Peleman has been in the business 69 years -- superior quality of
printing and binding.

· Books, catalogues, and manuals can be updated online and newer versions
are available within minutes.



"As a business owner or author, WWAOW means you never have to pay for storage,
packing, shipping, or invoicing another book or document, ever. That's the
power and the beauty of on-demand printing," said Kimberly Boim, Vice President,
WWAOW.com.
