LizardTech Announces Genuine Fractals 3.0

Software designed to create resolution-independent files from raster images By Dave Nagel
LizardTech has announced new versions of its Genuine Fractals line of image encoding software. Genuine Fractals is designed to create resolution-independent images from any file and print enlargements without any degradation in image quality. The new versions are available for Mac OS 9, Mac OS X and Windows.

Genuine Fractals 3.0 is available in three configurations: Genuine Fractals (standard version), Genuine Fractals Print Pro and Genuine Fractals LE. The Print Pro version encodes and renders in RGB, CMYK, CIE-Lab, multichannel and grayscale color spaces. According to the company, it can output any file size up to 600 percent without image degradation, and it can batch encode. The standard version supports RGB, multichannel and grayscale images. And the LE version offers the same functionality as the standard version but with an input file size limit of 10 MB and an output file size limit of 64 MB. All of the new versions have a new preview window, thumbnail view and latest code compilation.

LizardTech has not yet completely updated its Web site with full information about version 3.0, and its online order site still lists version 2.5 as the current release. We'll post an update when the full 3.0 release is available. For more information, visit
