Nik Software Inc. has announced that its noise reduction software tool Dfine
2.0 is now available for sale from specialty camera retailers in the U.S. or
direct from Nik Software (www.niksoftware.com) at a suggested retail price of
$99.95. Designed to improve image quality, Dfine 2.0 now includes Nik Software's
patented U Point technology for selective editing control and a completely new
user interface that is easier to use and improves workflow for busy photographers.



When capturing images, all digital cameras inherently create unwanted imperfections
known as noise. High ISO speeds and low light conditions can also contribute
to noise. Dfine 2.0 addresses the issue of digital image noise with unprecedented
selective control and a revamped image processing core, which provide superior
noise reduction while maintaining detail and sharpness in an image. A re-designed
user interface, new automatic camera profiling system, and the addition of U
Point powered Control Points help photographers quickly and easily improve the
quality of virtually every digital photo.

Extensis, a brand of Celartem Inc., has released Portfolio Server 8.5, a major
upgrade to its Portfolio Server creative assets management product line. Portfolio
Server 8.5 is the hub of Extensis' open system providing new capabilities
to CS3 workgroups in need of a flexible archive and automated web delivery asset
system. As a standard for managing creative assets within workgroups, Portfolio
Server 8.5 includes powerful Mac and Windows clients, a complete web publishing
solution and integration for CS3 applications.



Included with Portfolio Server 8.5 is Portfolio Project Sync for Adobe Creative
Suite 3. Developed in close partnership with Adobe, Project Sync brings together
the power of Portfolio Server with the convenience of the CS3 environment. Providing
seamless integration between Portfolio Server and CS3, Project Sync enables powerful
searching, archiving and automated web delivery from within creative applications.
Project Sync ties transparently into Portfolio Server, providing teams real-time
access to their assets.



This seamless integration allows creative workgroups to search, access, catalog
and tag assets in Portfolio Server, via Adobe Bridge and other CS3 applications.
Through this connection CS3 users tap into the powerful asset sharing and archiving
capabilities of Portfolio Server, all without leaving their primary creative application.
For example, a designer adds XMP data to an Adobe Photoshop file. Portfolio Project
Sync instantly syncs this information making it available to other Portfolio workgroup
clients and Portfolio NetPublish web sites. Users can now remain within CS3 applications
to distribute creative assets.
