PRESS RELEASE: Put Words in Their Mouths With Foto Balloon
eSoft Imaging has released Foto Balloon 1.0, an innovative Windows application that lets you add distinctive cartoon-style information balloons to your photographs and images. Once included invisibly in each image, you can easily display your comments in a variety of ways. Foto Balloon adds information to images without degrading the quality of the original image, and without attaching outside files to your photos.
In Auto Mode, the program displays your information balloons sequentially. It delivers a slide show, and leaves each balloon on the screen for the appropriate length of time, depending upon the amount of information in the balloon.
Freeze Mode is ideal for displaying the names of people or items in a photograph. Business people can use it to provide additional product information on catalog pages. Genealogist can use it to display the names of people in photographs of family gatherings.
In Manual Mode, the user can press the arrow-keys to display the balloons one at a time. In Mute Mode, no balloons are displayed, and the program becomes a standard image viewer.
You can tailor the look and feel of the info balloons. The fonts, colors, transparency, borders, alignment, and placement of each balloon are easy to adjust. Foto Balloon also makes it easy to import, view, organize, edit, print, and share your images.
Foto Balloon can be used as a business training tool to acquaint new employees with your product line. As a sales tool, Foto Balloon gives customers a clever way to learn more about the products and services that you offer.
Whether you're a business person who needs to provide prospects with photos that include professional annotations, or a home user who wants to add additional information to wedding, travel, and vacation pictures without damaging the original images, Foto Balloon has the tools that you need.
Foto Balloon 1.0 runs under Windows 95/98/Me/NT4/2000/XP, costs $34.95(US), and may be purchased securely online at http://www.diptool.com/. Multi-user and site licenses are available. You can download a free trial version of Foto Balloon from the same Internet address. A free Foto Balloon viewer is also available, allowing people who don't have Foto Balloon installed to view the images and information balloons.
