For Immediate Release

SCIENCE DATA PLUG-IN FOR ADOBE PHOTOSHOP

Fortner Software provides low cost plug-in for seamless imports of science
and remote sensing data into Adobe Photoshop

Sterling, VA - August 2, 1999 -- Fortner Software, experts on the
Hierarchical Data Format (HDF) data model, announced today the availability
of the Power Macintosh HDF Import Plug-in v1.1 for Adobe Photoshop for
online purchase and download. The Hierarchical Data Format (HDF) is a
scientific data format widely used by NASA and research labs worldwide. HDF
was developed by the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA)
to store data, images, annotations and tables in binary, cross-platform,
self-describing files. HDF makes it easier than ever before for scientists
and engineers to share data across networks, platforms, and disciplines.
"Fortner Software's goal is to make science and technical data accessible
to anyone," said Ted Meyer, Chief Technology Officer. "The HDF Photoshop
Plug-in provides an affordable way for users to access data and use
Photoshop's filters and color manipulation to analyze data from a variety
of science disciplines. Terabytes of remote sensing, astronomical and
physics HDF data is available on-line."

With the HDF Import Plug-in, Adobe Photoshop owners can access and raster
image and data objects stored in HDF files. Adobe Photoshop's advanced
annotations, color manipulation, additional imaging, and web publication
features compliment the image and data manipulation functionality of
Fortner Software's data access and visualization applications: Noesys,
Transform, T3D and Plot. For example, Noesys and Transform can import many
data formats including: text, binary, SDTS, DTED, GeoTIFF, and FITS, and
convert them to HDF, providing Adobe Photoshop users access to data from
sources previously
inaccessible.

Professor W. I. Newman, Departments of Earth and Space Sciences, Physics
and Astronomy, and Mathematics, University of California says, "I
personally have found the HDF Photoshop Import Plug-in to be especially
useful, both in Adobe Photoshop 5.0 and ImageReady, for adapting HDF files
produced from computer output for
professional publication use and for web visualization applications."

Fortner Software is developing new Windows and Power Macintosh versions of
the plug-in and will be release them later this year. The new plug-in will
allow you to select and visualize 8-bit or 24-bit raster images, 2D data,
any slice of a multidimensional data set, and apply any palette stored in
the HDF file to the data. This new version will also be fully compatible
with Landsat 7 HDF data.

SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS, PRICING AND AVAILABILITY

The HDF Import Plug-in v1.1 runs on the Power Macintosh, Mac OS 8+ and
requires 1 MB of hard disk space. It is compatible with Adobe Photoshop
versions 3.x, 4.x and 5.0, 5.1, 5.2.

The plug-in is available for $49 and can be purchased online and downloaded
electronically. Full details and purchases can be made from the Fortner
Software web site at
http://www.fortner.com. Macintosh users who buy now will receive a
discounted upgrade to the new version this fall.
