Fotolia and Xycod Introduce Major Advances in Stock Image Application Xycods PostworkShop 2.1 Directly Accesses Fotolias Image Bank(August 16, 2011)
Colorado Springs, CO, and New York, NY (PRWEB) August 16, 2011
Fotolia and Xycod are pleased to announce the immediate availability of PostworkShop 2.1. This integrates online image search, trial image enhancement and manipulation, image purchase, download and indexing, plus the production of reworked outputs. In a major breakthrough, each of these functions is now available internally within the PostworkShop application; all via the retrieval of images from Fotolias premium collection of free and affordable royalty-free photos and illustrations.
PostworkShop is innovative image editing software, creatively enabling graphics designers, artists, and photographers across a broad range of workflows. It supports professional/commercial and enthusiast/student users alike.
Our version 2.1 release of PostworkShop provides a unique capability directly benefiting a wide range of graphics and digital arts specialists, commented Bela Biro, Xycods CEO. We have been able to use the API toolkit made available by Fotolia to create a supplementary front-end for our flagship product. Specifically to allow the search, browsing, purchase, download and enhancement of any image in Fotolias catalog entirely within the application itself, he added. It allows our users to simply create; without restriction and with maximum impact.
We are very excited about the opportunity to work with Xycod, noted Garth Johnson, Executive Vice President at Fotolia North America. "By integrating images and processing in a more symbiotic, innovative way, Xycod and Fotolia are able provide a great platform of benefit to both Fotolia's photographer contributors, and the graphics design realm as a whole," he remarked.
PostworkShop remains available in three different editions: Professional, Artist and Basic. The Fotolia input option is available in all three. Primary functions and features of the version 2.1 release of PostworkShop also include:
- over 400 pre-built image processing filters all of which can be auto-applied, and also used in blended combinations, across a range of image formats,
- the use of these filters for photo correction, enhancement and manipulations - inclusive of simulated drawing and painting - for large images (16 Megapixels or more in size),
- the capability to switch seamlessly between auto- and manual-painting modes (with the latter supporting Wacom-type pressure-sensitive graphics tablets),
- the new availability of an Adobe® Photoshop® compatible plug-in,
- the availability of the program in both 32- and 64-bit code, for both the Apple Mac and Microsoft Windows operating systems, so supporting the best, contemporary computing platforms, and,
- a multi-lingual GUI.
