New Album Builder v5 with Auto Album
Fundy Software INC has just released their brand new v5 suite with a whole lot of new tools and gadgets. By far the most fun is the new Album Builder v5 with the auto album feature. You might say I’m lying, but I can do a 30-page wedding album in 15 minutes from start to finish. But the fun doesn’t stop there. The entire suite of programs has been updated to be more automated, give you more control and make your images look better than ever.
Album Builder v5 New Features
The newest fun feature in Album Builder v5 is the Auto Album function. Simply by organizing your images with easy-to-use page markers, you can click Auto Album and have Album Builder v5 design an entire album for you in minutes. “I designed three albums before breakfast and they were all approved, as is, by the clients,” says John Prutch, Washington-based wedding photographer.
But Album Builder v5 doesn’t stop there, with completely reconfigured design modules, you can choose the auto route or have full control over your albums.
The new Quick Design tab allows photographers to create detailed manual designs. You can create complex designs in minutes by building rows, columns, grids or a combination.
Blog Collage v3 New Features
Blog Collage is the fastest way to design elegant collages for your blog or online media, such as Facebook and Pinterest. Simply select your images, make two clicks and design your collage.
New in Blog Collage v3 is the ability to add looks to your collages. With 10 pre-built looks, adding those final polishing touches along with your logo to your collage is as easy as one click.
Image Brander v3 New Features
Image Brander will protect your images and promote your brand on the web. It’s as easy as selecting your images, choosing your look, checking your output size and hitting run. Says northern California photographer Ben Chrisman of Chrisman Studios, “We don’t let an image bound for the Internet out of our studio without putting our logo on it using Image Brander. It’s become our most used Photoshop tool.”
Also with 10 pre-built styles for your look, with Image Brander v3 you have many options for that quick branding before images get posted to the web. Or create an infinite number of custom looks by adjusting your logo size, color bar, text and frame. Plus, you can save out those unlimited favorite looks with the click of a button.
Batch Editor v2 New Features
Batch Editor is the fastest way to edit in Photoshop, with a bonus of professional, natural skin softening, 30+ actions and filters included.
With Batch Editor v2, all of your actions preload, you can create custom one-click mixes, and it works along with your third-party plug-ins. Create your own workspaces and mixes so Photoshop works the way you need it to work and make those professional edits in moments.
