Allows Photoshop users to view .STN files
OnOne Software is making available a
complimentary Genuine Fractals Reader
plug-in for Adobe Photoshop. The plugin
allows any user of Photoshop CS or
CS2 to open and view an image that was
scaled using earlier versions of Genuine
Fractals and saved with the proprietary
.STN file extension.
Beginning with Genuine Fractals
4.1, released in October 2005, using the
image-scaling plug-in no longer requires
saving files in .STN file format prior to using
the plug-in; instead, users can just open
an 8- or 16-bit RGB or CMYK image in Photoshop
and scale it via Genuine Fractals
4.1. Users still have the option to use the
.STN file format, however, because saving
as .STN allows them to get a smaller file
while retaining a high resolution, OnOne
Software reports. OnOne purchased Genuine
Fractals from Celartem in mid-2005.
