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. Geographic Imager supports GeoTIFF in Adobe Photoshop and many other industry standard raster formats. Mosaic and tile images, change projections, transform, rectify and georeference images based on ground control points. Batch-process your imagery using Geographic Imager and Adobe Photoshop scripting capabilities. Geographic Imager is a great companion to MAPublisher for Adobe Illustrator—prepare images in Geographic Imager and use them in MAPublisher. Geographic Imager is also available in a Basic license.
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 ground control points. 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.
