Two years ago, H&M System Software introduced StudioLine Photo Classic 3.
Since then, this integrated solution for professional image management and
editing has gained many comprehensive practical enhancements, delivered as
free of charge interim updates.
Clear User Interface and Optimized Workflow
The user interface can be customized to accommodate a wide variety of
tasks. Settings can be saved for reuse at any time.
For quick reference, the histogram is now found at the top of the image
editing bar. Individual image tool windows are scalable and feature optimized
sliders; all edit panes can be displayed or hidden with a single click. This
results in a maximized and neat work space for the user.
The one of a kind "Copy" button allows easy batch editing of large
numbers of pictures. It's available for nearly all StudioLine functions.
Rapid Keywording and Description
The new time-saving function for assigning entire keyword groups boosts
productivity. Templates for frequently used descriptor fields can be set up by
defining them as "drop-buckets" when assigning keywords. A multiline editor
simplifies the quick creation of entire keyword lists in a single step.
Offering speed and convenience, captions, titles and other descriptive
information can be typed and spell-checked directly below each picture.
Efficient Search Functions
The photo search offers new options, including a search for a time span
or file type. The image archive can be filtered according to any number of
criteria - from keywords to IPTC and Exif metadata, as well as image ratings.
Frequently used image archive filter queries can now be saved.
The unique "Timeline Explorer" has been equipped with annual, monthly and
daily views that can be restricted to specific folders.
StudioLine Photo Classic 3 Plus supports more than 250 RAW formats of
various camera manufacturers, including the latest camera models. The
StudioLine concept of "loss-less editing" enables users to experiment with
image editing filters without worries - the original images always remain
Professional Tools for Image Editing
The new filters "Unsharp Mask", "Selective Blur", "Gaussian Blur" and
"RGB Mixer" supplement the comprehensive range of editing filters. "Unsharp
Mask" allows image sharpening with a fine touch, "Selective Blur" is suitable
for optimizing portraits and eliminating graininess, and the "RGB Mixer"
creates precise black and white variants of color photos.
High Quality, Flexible Printing
Ready-made layouts produce high quality photo prints in the standard
sizes. Special print requirements are accommodated with the "Custom Print",
which offers utmost flexibility. An integrated design center allows the
creation of photo collages and other print projects, such as album pages,
calendars, flyers and greetings cards.
Film Strips for Rapid Export Preview
The new film strips allow rapid navigation through the images to be
exported. Additional sharpening and the compressing rate can be set for each
picture in the individual preview.
Add-on Module DigitalXpress for Exchanging Large Numbers of Pictures
The add-on module StudioLine DigitalXpress, newly introduced in November,
widens the functional scope of StudioLine Photo Classic 3 Plus. With
DigitalXpress, any number of images, sound files or videos can be exchanged
quickly and easily via the DigitalXpress server or any other FTP server.
StudioLine Photo Classic 3 Plus supports Microsoft(R) Windows(R)
Vista/XP/2000/ME and costs US$59 for a download version or US$69 for a CD
version. The "Christmas Special" of US$29 or US$39 will apply until December,
