automated processing and manipulation of photographs through scripts and hot folders
(PRWEB) November 01, 2012
Bits&Coffee has released Bits&Coffee BatchPhoto v. 3.5, a powerful all-in-one photo manipulation program for Mac OS X and Windows that lets photographers, web designers, business people, and families enhance photos quickly and efficiently. Simply select a group of photographs, and with a single operation annotate, touch-up, apply special effects, convert to different image types, resize, and rename every image in the group.
New features in version 3.5 include support for Mac OS X Mountain Lion (10.8) and Windows 8, built-in support for uploading pictures to Facebook, Picasa, Email, and websites, automated processing and manipulation of photographs through scripts and hot folders, and support for custom color profiles.
Additionally, version 3.5 includes a collection of beautifully designed frames readily available to decorate batches of photos in one session. The frames are divided into four graphical filters: Picture Frame, Vintage Frame, Grunge Frame, and Shape Frame.
With Bits&Coffee BatchPhoto the user can easily annotate images in batches. For example the Date filter can stamp photos with the date and time of capture (as retrieved from the EXIF meta-data), the Watermark-Text and Watermark-Image filters can visually watermark images with text or logos, and the Comment filter can add paragraphs of text to pictures.
The software can automatically rotate, resize, crop, and replace colors for thousands of photos in one session. It's simple to touch up groups of photos by changing the contrast, brightness, and color balance. Equalize images, adjust their hue and saturation, reduce the noise in images taken in low light, and sharpen them.
Bits&Coffee BatchPhoto also includes a full library of artistic effects, like adding borders, highlighting edges, and shading images. It can emboss, sepia-tone, and solarize images. Easily transform a representational photograph into a charcoal drawing or a simulated oil painting. Add swirls, waves, 3D effects, and more.
The software is also an image converter program that can read and write more than 170 image file formats, including: JPEG, TIFF, PDF, PNG, GIF, BMP, EPS, TGA, and PSD. It can also read RAW image formats from Canon, Sony, Nikon, Olympus, and Fuji digital cameras.
Bits&Coffee BatchPhoto v. 3.5 runs on Mac OS X Mountain Lion (10.8), Lion (10.7), Snow Leopard (10.6) as well as Windows 8, 7, Vista, and XP. It comes in three editions: Home, Pro, and Enterprise priced at $34.95(US), $59.95(US), respectively $149.95(US) and may be purchased securely online from http://www.batchphoto.com/.
