Update: Genuine Fractals 3 To Ship This Month

Image encoding software expected May 20 By Dave Nagel
Last week we reported that LizardTech had announced new versions of its Genuine Fractals line of image encoding software. However, at the time, there was no information on when the software would ship. Now the company says it will be available for download May 20, with full CD versions expected May 27. Pricing has also been announced.

Genuine Fractals is designed to create resolution-independent images from any file and print enlargements without any degradation in image quality.

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.

Genuine Fractals 3.0 will be available for Mac OS 9, Mac OS X and Windows. The PrintPro version will sell for $299; the standard edition will sell for $159; and the LE version will sell for $49.95. For more information, visit
