ALDUS SHIPS PHOTOSTYLER 1.1A

 ALDUS SHIPS PHOTOSTYLER 1.1A
 SEATTLE, April 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Aldus Corp. (NASDAQ: ALDC) today


announced shipment in the United States and Canada of Aldus PhotoStyler 1.1a, an update to its full-color image-processing program for Microsoft Windows. PhotoStyler enables users to scan, enhance, compose, retouch and print 24-bit color, grayscale and black-and-white images.
 New capabilities in PhotoStyler 1.1a include support for raw-image data formats and for the Joint Photographic Experts Groups (JPEG) standard for image-file compression and expansion. It also offers numerous interface and performance improvements, including optimized memory management and faster image handling, TIFF LZW compression and decompression and clipboard operations.
 "This update increases PhotoStyler's effectiveness in handling digital images of 20MB or more," said Rod Bauer, product marketing manager for PhotoStyler. "The program's optimizations, combined with those of Windows 3.1, make PhotoStyler faster, more flexible and easier to use. Depending on the function, users will find version 1.1a to be 10-percent to 1,000-percent faster than version 1.1."
 JPEG support enables PhotoStyler users to compress files to a fraction of their normal size for efficient storage and data transmission. Photostyler is the first Windows image-processing application to support the JPEG standard.
 Other enhancements speed up common tasks. For instance, users can now select more than one file to open simultaneously. They can also preview images as they're being opened, allowing them to quickly cancel the opening of an unwanted file. A number of new keyboard shortcuts expedite closing files and exiting the program.
