LizardTech Launches Genuine Fractals 4.0

Image-scaling program streamlines with Photoshop

Big Picture

LizardTech has launched version 4.0 of its Genuine Fractals image-scaling program for Adobe Photoshop. Version 4.0 focuses on moving away from the proprietary .STN image format and streamlining with the Photoshop menu, as well as enabling users to increase the resolution of images captured using a digital camera or scanner. The software can also be used to scale medium-res images to a higher resolution to achieve print quality.

Also available is Genuine Fractals PrintPro 4.0, which gives users the ability to scale, store, and electronically distribute digital images for a variety of output requirements. The plug-in can create print-ready enlargements of various sizes and resolutions from a single medium- or high-resolution file without compromising the quality of the original image.

Genuine Fractals PrintPro 4.0 supports RGB and CMYK Photoshop color. System requirements: Windows 2000 or XP and Adobe Photoshop 7.0 or later for the PC platform; Mac OS 10.2 or later and Adobe Photoshop 7.0 or later for the Mac platform. Price: Genuine Fractals: $159; Print- Pro 4.0: $299. (Lizardtech: www.lizardtech.com)
