Extensis updates Pro Photo Raw Image Filter

Mon, 27 Sep 2004 19:05:00 Z

Extensis has announced an update to its Pro Photo Raw Image Filter for Portfolio 7. Using the Filter Portfolio 7 can extract EXIF metadata and IPTC from Raw files, create thumbnails and generate high resolution JPEG previews for displaying images in catalogues. Registered owners of Extensis’ digital asset management (DAM) solution will be eligible for a free upgrade. Press Release: Extensis Announces Pro Photo Raw Image Filter for Portfolio 7 Free filter powered by Bibble Labs enables professional photographers to read Raw data from image files of leading digital SLR cameras. Photokina, Cologne, Germany – September 27, 2004 – Extensis Inc. today announced an update to its Pro Photo Raw Image Filter for Portfolio 7. The updated filter will be a free upgrade for registered owners of Extensis’ digital asset management (DAM) solution for organizing digital photos, illustrations, page layouts and presentations. With the Pro Photo Raw Image Filter, Portfolio generates high-quality thumbnails and previews from the unprocessed raw image files created by professional digital cameras from Nikon, Olympus, Kodak, Canon, Fuji, Konica-Minolta, Pentax and Imacon. With the Pro Photo Raw Image Filter, Portfolio 7 can extract EXIF metadata and IPTC from the Raw files, create thumbnails for displaying the images in catalogs, and generate high-resolution JPEG previews on the fly for detailed viewing, printing, slideshows and QuickTime movies. “There have been rapid developments in the digital camera industry since we released our first Raw camera support for Portfolio last year,” said Dan Harlacher, Extensis Portfolio product manager. “With this update, professional photographers now have the Raw camera support they demand for keeping pace with the new camera developments without losing the ability to preview, keyword, organize and sort thousands of images within Portfolio without getting bogged down in a lengthy conversion process.” Many pro-level photographers produce digital photos in Raw format because it preserves 100 percent of the color and tonal range data captured by the camera’s light-sensitive computer chip in an uncompressed, lossless form. Raw files can serve as digital “negatives” or master images that can later be converted into more standard formats (such as TIFF or JPEG) with a variety of tools that give the photographer control over how the original data is ultimately rendered. The Pro Photo Raw Image filter for Portfolio is powered by technology from Bibble Labs, one of the leading developers of raw image processing software. “We are pleased to once again combine the power of Bibble Labs’ Raw image processing technology with Portfolio’s unique digital asset management solution,” said Eric Hyman CEO of Bibble Labs. The following cameras and file formats are supported by the updated Pro Photo Raw Image Filter for Portfolio 7: Nikon – D1/D1x/D1h/D100, D70/D2h Fuji S2 Pro/S7000Z Olympus– E10/E20/E1/C5050/C5060 Kodak – DCS 14n/DCS 760C/DCS 760M/720X/ Pro Back/Pro Back Plus/Pro Back 645 for Contax, Mamiva and Hasselblad H1/DCS SLR/n/DCS SLR/c Canon – EOS D30/ EOS D60/ EOS 10D/ EOS 1D/ EOS 1Ds/ EOS 1D Mark II/ EOS Digital Rebel/300D/Kiss/ Powershot G5/ Powershot G3/Powershot G2/ Powershot G1/ Powershot S50/ Powershot S45/ Powershot S40/ Powershot S30/ Powershot Pro90 IS Konica-Minolta – A1/A2 Pentax – *ist D Imacon  – (extracts 680X680 preview and metadata only.
