An indispensable tool for photographers, graphic artists and digital imaging professionals, LizardTech Genuine Fractals 4.0 PrintPro delivers the power to scale, store and electronically distribute digital images for a variety of output requirements. This award-winning plug-in for Adobe® Photoshop® and compatibles gives users high-quality, print-ready enlargements of various sizes and resolutions from a single medium- or high-resolution digital file without compromising the quality of the original image. Key features offered with this new version include an improved image scaling workflow within Photoshop achieved by moving away from the proprietary .STN image format and streamlining within the Photoshop menu; intuitive user interface and faster image scaling and access.
