ALDUS SHIPS GALLERY EFFECTS: CLASSIC ART FOR WINDOWS

 ALDUS SHIPS GALLERY EFFECTS: CLASSIC ART FOR WINDOWS
 CHICAGO, April 6 /PRNewswire/ -- At the Windows World trade show today, Aldus Corp. (NASDAQ: ALDC) announced shipment in the United States and Canada of Aldus Gallery Effects: Volume 1, Classic Art for Microsoft Windows. Gallery Effects is a library of artistic effects that automatically transform scanned photographs and other bitmap images into dramatic painting-like artwork. It is published by Aldus' San Diego subsidiary, Silicon Beach Software.
 Like the Macintosh version introduced in August 1991, Gallery Effects for Windows offers 16 master effects. Each effect is designed to recreate a classic art style, such as charcoal, dark strokes, dry brush, fresco, graphic pen, mosaic, poster edges or watercolor. Users can customize the effects and save the settings for future use. Any effect can be applied to either an entire image or a selected area.
 Users can apply the effects from within a standalone application that comes with the product, or use the effects as "plug-in" filters with graphics programs such as Aldus PhotoStyler 1.1 and Fractal Design Painter 1.0. The plug-in filters appear as integral parts of the host program, providing convenient access to these unique image- enhancement capabilities.
 Gallery Effects opens and saves files in TIF, BMP and TGA format - - including grayscale and 24-bit color images. Gallery Effects files are transferable between Windows and Macintosh environments.
 PRICING AND AVAILABILITY
 Aldus Gallery Effects for Windows is available in the United States and Canada from Aldus resellers for a suggested retail price of $199(U.S.). Localized versions for European and Pacific Rim markets will be announced later.
 SYSTEM CONFIGURATION
 Aldus Gallery Effects requires Microsoft Windows 3.0 (or later) and Windows 3.0-compatible hardware. The recommended system configuration is a 386- or 486-based DOS-compatible computer, 4MB of RAM, an 80MB hard disk, a 16- or 24-bit graphics card and monitor and a mouse or other pointing device. The minimum configuration is a 286-based DOS-compatible computer, 2MB of RAM, a 20MB hard disk, any Windows-compatible graphics display card and monitor and a mouse. When the effects are used as plug-in filters with other programs, system requirements are determined by the host product.
