PRESS RELEASE: Boinx Releases FotoMagico 2.1
Color, iPhoto '08, iPhone, Apple TV, Web Enhancements
MUNICH, Germany -- As professional photographers master digital photography more and more, their interest turns to things to do with their photos. Stunning slide shows in minutes are the speciality of FotoMagico 2. Or as Macworld says: "A photographer's dream come true". With the latest update, FotoMagico 2.1 gains the ability to non-destructively adjust the color of an image, adapts to changes to iPhoto '08, exports to iPhone and Apple TV and exports better looking movies.
Color for Professionals
Imagine you took five images of sky on five different days. Due to differences in white balance, exposure and time of day, each of them is a slightly different shade of blue. You don't want to edit the original images, but just for this slide show, you want them to look the same. In FotoMagico 2 Pro, you can adjust the color of an image non-destructively. That means the color will be adjusted for presentation and export, but the original image file is not changed.
FotoMagico 2.1 is updated to support the latest changes to the iPhoto libraries introduced by Apple with the iLife '08 update. You can continue to access your photos in iPhoto as conveniently as with iPhoto 6 and before.
Plays Nice With iPhone, Apple TV
By creating a cool FotoMagico show from your photos and loading it on your iPhone, the iPhone becomes a powerful sales tool. Just think of the wow factor when your clients see how stylish you present your work. FotoMagico 2.1 adds export presets to make shows that play on the iPhone and the Apple TV easy to create.
Better Movies for Web
When exporting a movie, there is always a compromise between movie quality and file size. If you create a movie for the web, you want it to load quickly so you need a small file, but you also want good quality, which usually means a bigger file. As video encoding technology progresses, the FotoMagico presets are constantly improved to create better quality movies at the same file size. So you don't have to learn all about the technology.
