Lumapix Announces Completion of Fotofusion V3 Rollout
Montreal, May 28 2004
--Amazing Tools For Pro Photographers and Scrapbookers Alike--
- LumaPix is pleased to announce the immediate availability of LumaPix::FotoFusionT version 3.0. This elegant and powerful application for image manipulation sets the price/performance standard and is the latest "must have" tool for image professionals and enthusiasts.
Professional photographers use FotoFusion to assemble image compositions ranging in size from wedding albums to wall portraits. A unique user interface turns tedious image arrangement tasks into a pleasure; users can choose templates or automated layout tools to assemble unique multi-image compositions that increase the value and visual sophistication of their work. The results can be emailed to clients as watermarked proofs, uploaded to online galleries using custom HTML styles to match existing website designs, or printed at extreme resolutions on large-format output devices.
David Ziser, master photographer, comments: "FotoFusion revolutionizes a huge part of the workflow for digital photographers. After testing FotoFusion for a few months I literally 'stopped the presses' on our current PhotoShop-intensive workflow, and made a hard right hand turn to a FotoFusion workflow. Staff was "team trained" in a day. Our first wedding project was completed in 1/10 our typical production time, and album pages are now literally created in a few minutes. Retouching, color adjustments, image edges and page design are performed effortlessly. The results are unbelievably easy to attain and a joy to behold. You absolutely must own FotoFusion Pro v3.0"
FotoFusion Standard optimizes the feature set for more price-conscious home photography and scrapbooking enthusiasts. The unique layout mechanism assembles scrapbooks and photo collages in a snap, ready for printing, editing in other packages, sending by email to friends and family, or publishing on web pages with the integrated email and FTP tools.
Stacey Kluczny, a well-known digital artist in the scrapbooking community, comments: "FotoFusion is without a doubt the most revolutionary program that ever hit the scrapbooking industry; it has an incredibly friendly and forgiving learning curve. You can use graphic page kits, templates and individual elements easily, add text, adjust & resize images, email your creations directly from FotoFusion, and resize your layouts without losing quality. This is one program no one should be without!"
