ArcSoft Launches New Digital Image Editing Solution; PhotoStudio 2000 Offers Powerful Solutions for Digital Imaging Needs.

LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--November 18, 1999--

COMDEX, Sands, Booth no. 1341/ArcSoft, a leading digital imaging software company and provider of online photo services, today announced the release of PhotoStudio 2000, its new full-featured, dynamic photo-editing program that gives users the ability to perfect their digital images. With a suggested retail price of $39.99, PhotoStudio2000 offers everything a high-end, high-priced, photo-editing program does, but at a price everyone can afford.

"PhotoStudio 2000 offers an extensive and impressive feature-set, including advanced editing tools -- yet it's combined with an incredibly easy-to-use interface. The program is perfect for photo enthusiasts -- from the business user to the `photo prosumer'," said Joseph Bollentini, executive vice president and chief operating officer of ArcSoft. "This product, along with our PhotoIsland Web site (, is the ideal way for users to touch-up photos and share them with family, friends and business associates."

PhotoStudio 2000's newest features meet any home or office photo-editing need. PhotoStudio now offers the ability to work with layers. The multiple layer feature enables users to apply special effects or enhancements to each layer without affecting other layers - making it easy to change or alter any edits they may have at a later time. With the new Macro feature, PhotoStudio users can create and save a series of effects and enhancements as a single one-click command - allowing the user to apply the batch process on hundreds of images with a single click.

Separating itself even further from the competition, PhotoStudio 2000 provides a complete set of editing and retouching tools that are extremely easy to use. The program, running at lightening speed, enables the user to experiment and improve their digital images by providing tools like multiple undo/redo, multiple layers, transparency backgrounds, editable text, red-eye removal, one-click fixes, stitch and a variety of other editing and retouching tools. Moreover, users can instantly adjust the color of any image using enhancement tools like brightness, contrast, hue, and saturation. Among PhotoStudio's most popular features are the special effect tools, which allow users to clone, smudge, emboss, ripple and more. Additionally, PhotoStudio's new "Studio Assistant" and online "Context Sensitive Help" can assist the user by walking them through many of the program's features, if needed.

The PhotoStudio 2000 album manager feature makes it easy for users to easily manage their image files. This feature lets users manage, store, and retrieve image files quickly and easily, and place them into multimedia presentations. Additionally, a button within the PhotoStudio program, instantly connects the user to photo related services through, ArcSoft's unique Web site. Here users can easily post and download their images to the web - without ever having to leave the program or launch a third party application. PhotoIsland provides users with free photo sharing and archiving and offers a large variety of digital imaging products and services.
