Portraits & Prints Updated to Version 1.2

Oviedo, Florida — July 30, 2002 — Portraits & Prints=81, the personal phot=
studio for Mac OS X, gets updated with several new features. This update
comes packed with more advanced cropping features, several photo scaling
options, full Applescript support, and contrast control including the
ability to apply enhancements to multiple images at once.

Complete control over cropping is realized with two new features. Crops can
now be drawn while maintaining aspect ratio using the new “Constraint”
feature. Furthermore, the new “Preset” crop feature enables you to create
crops of any combination of size, position, aspect ratio and save them for
future use on other photos. These features make it very easy to crop large
batches of photos and maintain the aspect ratio.

A contrast setting was added to the enhancement tool set which already
included brightness, sharpness and saturation. Portraits & Prints now has
the ability to create settings using all four tools and then add them to a
pop-up list for use anytime. Create your own or use the set of commonly
used enhancements already provided.

Photos can now be scaled for printing in three different ways. They can be
auto-cropped, fitted proportionally, or stretched to fit giving complete
flexibility in printing photos.

Portraits & Prints continues to improve and was recently named in the
following publications: iPhoto: The Missing Manual by David Pogue, Joseph
Schorr, & Derrick Story, iPhoto 1.1 for Mac OS X by Adam Engst, and The
Macintosh Digital Hub by Jim Heid. These publications cited Portraits &
Prints as a great companion application to iPhoto. Go to, try the demo, and find out for yourself what all
the hype is about.
