New Software for Active Picture Takers Delivers an Easy Way to Find, Fix, Share and Preserve a Lifetime of Memories
SAN JOSE, Calif. - Feb. 18, 2003 (NASDAQ: ADBE) - Adobe Systems Incorporated today announced the immediate availability of Adobe® Photoshop® Album, new Windows®-based software that extends the legendary Photoshop product line to millions of digital camera users who need an easy way to find, fix, share and preserve their lifetime of photos. Consumers can now purchase Photoshop Album for US$49.99 on Adobe.com as well as at major retail outlets, including Amazon.com, Best Buy, Buy.com, Circuit City, CompUSA, Datavision, Fry's Electronics, J&R Music and Computer World, Micro Center, Office Depot, Sam's Club, and Staples.
Recognized by TechTV as the best new photography and imaging product at last month's International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Photoshop Album software gathers thousands of digital photos for viewing in one convenient place - the photo well - and automatically organizes them by date. No matter where pictures are stored on a computer, it's simple to find any photo using the timeline view, which displays photos taken over a period of time, or the detailed calendar view, which shows the exact day and month when each moment was captured. Photoshop Album is the only consumer digital photography product to take full advantage of the ubiquity of Adobe Acrobat® Reader® and the Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF), creating a universally accessible way to share digital photos with friends and family. Most importantly, Photoshop Album is equipped with one-click photo backup to CD and DVD to ensure that memories can be preserved for future generations.
An easy-to-follow wizard helps users create slide shows, printed cards, calendars, and photo albums. Direct links to online partners, Shutterfly and MyPublisher.com, allow users to order high-quality prints and linen-covered hardbound photo books. Online services may vary worldwide.
"Photoshop Album takes digital photography far beyond film. It makes it easier and more fun to do what users want to do today with pictures," said Alexis Gerard, president of Future Image Inc. "Since the product thinks the way picture takers do, users will appreciate unprecedented control and access to their entire lifetime of photos, along with sharing options that enable visual communication with loved ones around the world."
Photoshop Album is the newest addition to the Photoshop family of digital imaging products from Adobe. Adobe meets the imaging needs of everyone involved in digital photography: Photoshop Album for active picture takers, Photoshop Elements for photo enthusiasts, and for image-editing professionals, Adobe Photoshop.
