ALDUS ANNOUNCES ALDUS FREEHAND 3.11 FOR THE MACINTOSH

 ALDUS ANNOUNCES ALDUS FREEHAND 3.11 FOR THE MACINTOSH
 SEATTLE, Nov. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Aldus Corp. (NASDAQ: ALDC) today announced Aldus FreeHand 3.11 for the Apple Macintosh, an update of its advanced design and illustration program.
 The new version will include full support for Aldus Fetch, Aldus' recently announced multiuser application for cataloging, browsing through and retrieving images, animations, digitized video and sound files on the Macintosh. Version 3.11 will also provide a Trumatch color library and improvements in file generation, previewing and printing.
 With its support of Aldus Fetch, Aldus FreeHand 3.11 will save illustrations in a format that Fetch can catalog and retrieve. Customers will also be able to add Fetch-readable annotations and keywords to 3.11 files, as well as launch Aldus FreeHand from Fetch.
 "Combining this update with Aldus Fetch will have a tremendous impact on the way Aldus FreeHand designers and illustrators work on projects," said Laura Malone, product marketing manager for Aldus FreeHand. "They will be able to easily share images among workgroups on a network, saving time and increasing accuracy. In addition, those working in single-user situations will be able to increase their efficiency in locating and retrieving images."
 By supporting the Trumatch digital color matching system, Aldus FreeHand 3.11 will give customers nearly 2,000 more predefined colors for use in their illustrations.
 Version 3.11 will also provide a new option for generating PICT previews of EPS files. PICT files offer more accurate color and on-screen previewing and take up less disk space than EPS files, which saves time when transmitting illustrations over a network.
 Aldus FreeHand remains the only PostScript-compatible illustration package to provide pressure-sensitive drawing, the ability to work and edit in full color, and unlimited layers.
 PRICING AND AVAILABILITY
 Aldus FreeHand 3.11 will be available in the United States in the fourth quarter of 1992. Packages for European and Pacific Rim markets will be announced later.

Registered owners of version 3.1 will be able to purchase both products for only $199. Aldus Fetch has a suggested list price of $295 and will be available in the fourth quarter.
