New Macintosh IMAGE MAP EDITOR & ANTI-ALIASING TEXT TOOL Released

TORONTO - November 5, 1997 - Lakewood Software today released webAlias 1.0,
an integrated image map editor and anti-aliasing text tool for web and
graphic designers.

Positioned as the first dedicated Mac-based client-side image map editor to
feature powerful anti-aliasing text tools, webAlias can be effectively used
to design complete web sites, single web pages, and graphic content for
multimedia and web design projects.

"What we have endeavored to do here is to build a complete web design tool
kit that delivers the pixel-level control and attractively rendered text
sought by graphic designers," explained David Hutchison, the lead developer
at Lakewood Software. "We've integrated support for line, shape, freeform,
field, and button objects and wrapped all of this functionality within a
WYSIWYG, object-oriented graphic design tool that itself has the 'look and
feel' of a web browser."

A webAlias project consists of multiple panels (i.e. web pages) populated
with URL-linked line, shape, freeform, field, and button objects. A
background layer is common to all panels.

Incorporating an anti-aliasing text engine developed by WetWare Inc.,
webAlias includes support for embedded pictures, 'ppat' patterns, and
gradients in text, as well as multiple shadow and highlight effects with
flexible density levels. Anti-aliasing settings can be saved as styles and
recalled for later use. Anti-aliased text can be deleted to reveal the
original, editable text blocks. This feature makes webAlias ideal for
managing web sites with regularly changing content.

Other features include: project & panel templates; a find & replace tool
for text; text leading; layering and alignment options; embedded 'ppat'
patterns and gradient fills in shapes; ink & transparency effects; GIF,
JPEG, and TIFF export; Netscape bookmarks import; and viewable download
statistics. An integrated screen capture utility and flexible export
options round out webAlias' feature set. Image conversion for exported
graphics is handled behind the scenes by Yves Piguet's freeware
application, clip2gif.

In addition to exporting complete web sites, webAlias can also be
effectively used to design graphic content and image maps for existing web
pages and as an anti-aliasing text tool for more general graphic and
multimedia design work.
