- Award Winning Software Sure To Be Popular With Commercial and News Photographers -
West Chester, OH, June 28, 2002 -- Bestcolor USA, the operating subsidiary of Best GmbH with responsibilities for the United States and Canada, has released two new photo products. Best PhotoXposure and Best Photo Edition enable commercial and news photographers to quickly determine how a photograph will appear when printed. Both products support both RGB and CMYK workflows, and permit printing full-size proofs, posters and banners directly from the photo file. The top of the line Best PhotoXposure is Windows based; the less robust Best Photo Edition is a Mac product. At the 2002 Photo Marketing Show, Best PhotoXposure won a Digital Imaging Marketing Association award for image quality and color accuracy.
Bestcolor USA president Mark Geeves, discussing the photo products, said: "The increasing popularity of digital photography requires new tools to maintain the photographer‚s art. Best PhotoXposure and Best Photo Edition are ideal for use in the fast-paced production environment faced by commercial and news photographers today. Those accustomed to working with film or slides will welcome the process control available when handing off digital images with a color-accurate proof to those who must print them. These products support most available wide-format printers including the recently announced Epson Stylus Pro 7600 and 9600 printers."
