Kubota Image Tools announced the general availability of its newly enhanced DASHBOARD 3 Pro software, as well as the brand new Kubota Texture Tools and the re-released Kubota Sloppy Borders (now DASHBOARD 3-compatible). The updates of these award-winning offerings are now available for immediate purchase and download at: http://www.kubotaimagetools.com/store.

Kubota Image Tools’ exclusive DASHBOARD 3 Pro is a floating palette within Photoshop that acts like a mini search engine for Photoshop actions, enabling photographers to manage and run their entire actions collection, including the award-winning Actions from Kubota Image Tools. With the new DASHBOARD 3 Pro, photographers can find any action quickly and run them instantly. This latest version of the popular workflow optimization tool includes the ability to keyword search for actions, update action descriptions and mark favorites for future use.

“Our new DASHBOARD 3 Pro has been designed to work the way photographers think,” said Kevin Kubota, Idea Guy of Kubota Image Tools. “The efficiencies gained from harnessing actions through this one-stop solution will help photographers create stunning images in just seconds. It’s certainly the fastest path from original image to finished art.”

To ensure the most streamlined workflow possible, the new DASHBOARD 3 Pro refreshes the available list of actions each time Photoshop is opened. Other speed-enhancing upgrades include a quick execute command, a new “Merge Copy” layer to help any action run in tandem and a handy refresh option for adding or removing items from the actions palette.

Also available immediately are the new Kubota Borders and Textures on their own DASHBOARD. The “Earth Textures - Smooth Organic Pak” and the “Industrial Textures - High Tech Electric Pak” provide users with a fast and easy method to add unique textures to images. Each Pak includes 50 unique textures individually created in conjunction with professional photographer and philanthropist Benjamin Edwards (http://www.benjaminimages.com/).

In addition, the re-released Kubota Sloppy Borders provide more than 100 classic film-effect borders, which now automatically integrate with the Kubota Borders and Textures DASHBOARD for easy searching, previewing and applying. These borders help photographers apply the classic look of old film to their images with creative borders ranging from elegantly thin, to eye-catching medium to commanding thick borders.

“Textures add an almost intangible depth and richness to an image, and borders have long been a favorite aesthetic used since the days of film photography. They add great visual appeal to a photo, but both have traditionally been time consuming or confusing to apply in this digital era,” said Kubota. “Ben's textures are amazingly artistic and were created with an experienced eye for how textures will be used over images of all sizes.”

DASHBOARD 3 Pro is available for immediate download through the Kubota Image Tools website. First time users can purchase the software alone for $79.00. Alternatively, if purchased with any set of Kubota Actions, users can take advantage of the same upgrade pricing available to current owners of the DASHBOARD for $49.00.

The Kubota Texture Tools Paks as well as the Kubota Sloppy Borders are now available for $149 each. Customers that own the original Kubota Sloppy Borders should contact Kubota Image Tools at info@kubotaimagetools.com for information on upgrade specials.
