Geographic Imager 5.3 is the latest version of Avenza’s mapping plug-in for the desktop graphics environment of Adobe Photoshop.
Combined with Adobe Photoshop, Geographic Imager revolutionizes the way spatial imagery is created, edited and maintained by allowing spatial image files to be created, edited and managed in the familiar and widely-used Adobe Photoshop environment. Geographic Imager allows the most common spatial imaging tasks to be performed where they should be done, in a powerful raster editing environment, and adds the dozens of powerful Adobe Photoshop tools and operations to those that one can perform on such imagery.
Geographic Imager is comprised of a series of geospatial tools for Adobe Photoshop that will continually improve on each previous version by adding additional file support, tools and improvements to existing tools. Geographic Imager is also the perfect companion suite for MAPublisher and Adobe Illustrator users.
