Geographic Imager 2.1 for Adobe Photoshop Released

– Powerful geospatial plug-in suite now supports Adobe Photoshop CS4 –

Toronto, ON, March 2, 2009 – Avenza Systems Inc., producers of MAPublisher cartographic software for Adobe Illustrator and Macromedia FreeHand, Geographic Imager spatial imaging tools for Adobe Photoshop as well as MAPdataUSA, MAPdataCanada and MAPdataWorld royalty-free GIS data sets, announces the release of Geographic Imager 2.1 for Adobe Photoshop CS3 and CS4. Geographic Imager 2.1 is the latest version of this powerful software that adds geospatial functionality to Adobe Photoshop.

“Following the success of the initial Geographic Imager releases we are delighted to follow-up with this update supporting Adobe Photoshop CS4, said Doug Smith, Avenza’s Director of Sales. “With this release we now offer spatial imaging support for Adobe’s most current Photoshop release and further enhance overall spatial image processing within Adobe Photoshop,” he added.

Geographic Imager enhances the already commanding Adobe Photoshop imaging environment by adding all the tools and technology necessary to support the import, edit, manipulation and export of geospatial images such as aerial and satellite imagery. In addition to allowing the use of Photoshop and its powerful native imaging functions such as cropping, transparencies, individual pixel editing and brightness/contrast control, Geographic Imager adds the ability to import and recognize GeoTIFFs and other referenced raster formats, automatically mosaic and tile images spatially, reproject and transform images, geo-reference images based on ground control points and re-export images with all spatial information intact.

  • Adds support for Adobe Photoshop CS4
