PRESS RELEASE: ArcSoft Panorama Maker(R) 4 Pro
Mar 08, 2007 13:00
Latest Pro-Level Photo Software Offering.
LAS VEGAS --(Business Wire)-- Mar. 8, 2007 ArcSoft, Inc. announced today the release of ArcSoft Panorama Maker(R) 4 Pro at the PMA Convention. The software is for professional quality photostitching -- turning any series of overlapping photos into a gorgeous panoramic image. While the application is similar to ArcSoft Panorama Maker(R), the newly released Pro version is designed for professionals and sophisticated hobbyists and includes extensive manual fine-tuning options.
"Panorama Maker Pro takes our existing photostitching technology and gives users much more control of the resulting panorama image," said Michael Downs, ArcSoft Vice President of Marketing and Business Development. "While our Panorama Maker 4 standard version offers impressive results automatically, our professional and enthusiast users have asked for more advanced control over panorama creation. We're excited to have this application join PhotoStudio Darkroom and Cut-It-Out in our expanding line of high-end photo editing products."
Panorama Maker Pro provides extensive RAW format support and can create horizontal, vertical, 360 degrees, and tiled (4x4) panorama images. It automatically orders and stitches photos, then allows users to manually align the stitching points and adjust the stitching path to create seamless results. Fine-tuned control for adjusting brightness and contrast and the ability to add frames, titles, and copyright information help make the stitched pictures perfect for sharing or publishing.
Panorama Maker Pro Key Features:
-- Adjustment and editing options for fine-tuning: manual stitching point alignment; manual adjustment of stitching paths
-- Horizontal, vertical, 360 degrees, and tile stitching modes
-- Extensive RAW format support
-- Ability to add frame, title, and copyright
