Spatial imaging tools
for Adobe Photoshop
Working with raster imagery doesn't have to be complicated. Geographic Imager® mapping software enhances Adobe Photoshop to make working with spatial imagery quick and efficient. It adds tools to import, edit, manipulate and export geospatial images such as aerial and satellite imagery. Enjoy the use of native Adobe Photoshop functions such as transparencies, filters, pixel editing, and image adjustments like brightness, contrast, and curve controls while maintaining spatial referencing.
Mosaic and tile images, transform projections, georeference and rectify images using an easy and interactive workflow. Batch-process your imagery using Geographic Imager and Adobe Photoshop scripting capabilities. Geographic Imager supports GeoTIFF in Adobe Photoshop and many other industry standard raster formats.
Geographic Imager has the ability to create map packages fully compatible with the PDF Maps app for iOS and Android. Map publishers who sell maps can upload map packages directly to the PDF Maps Store.
Any image format that can be opened and displayed by Adobe Photoshop can form the basis for a spatial image. Import common spatial formats such as GeoTIFF, MrSID, NITF, PCI and more. Import digital elevation formats such as Esri GRID, BIL, and USGS DEM. Preview images and resample using Advanced Import to save memory and time. Note: Some limitations apply to certain formats. Full details and to see all the Geographic Imager supported formats.
Georeference images easily by adding control points and assigning world coordinates interactively. Review residual errors and detect coordinate system to reference and rectify images. Manually add control points, import or export points from a text file, and view accuracy and errors. Use the Quick Georeference option to make georeferencing even easier. Multiple transformation types are supported.
Extensive support for thousands of geographic and projected coordinate systems. Easily transform between geodetic and projected coordinate systems. Need to define your own coordinate system? Create one or edit an existing definition and save it for future use. Manage custom transformations in an easy to use coordinate system browser.
Snapping images together not working? Mosaic individual images to create a seamless image. Mosaicked images retain spatial referencing and can be individually modified using Adobe Photoshop tools and transformed using Geographic Imager. Also, tile an image into multiple images by tile size or count and automatically save them using sequential naming. Tiles retain spatial referencing making it ideal to import into MAPublisher without any trouble.
