Avenza Systems (www.avenza.com) has released the Geographic Imager 4.1 Basic License for Adobe Photoshop. It provides the geo-reference framework of Geographic Imager to Adobe Photoshop and the ability to import and export limited file formats.
The Basic License can import all supported spatial imagery that the Full license can (some file size restrictions apply to non-native Adobe Photoshop formats), and allows for limited export to major GIS formats including GeoTIFF and geospatial PDF, says Ted Florence, president of Avenza Systems.
Geographic Imager Basic License Maintains the geo-reference framework of Geographic Imager in Adobe Photoshop. It offers the ability to read Geographic Imager supported file formats up to 1GB. It also offers the ability to export to major GIS raster formats including GeoTIFF, geospatial PDF, and JPEG 2000.
Geographic Imager 4.1 Basic License is immediately available at US$199 with a special introductory price of US$149 through Jan. 31. An upgrade to a Full License is available at $500 within the first 60 days of activating a Basic License and $549 thereafter. Academic and volume license pricing are also available. Geographic Imager 4.1 Basic License is available for Adobe Photoshop CS5, CS5.1 and CS6 for both Mac OS X and Windows.
