SPINAKER DEBUTS PFS:POWERALBUM; NEW WINDOWS PROGRAM IS THE QUICKEST AND EASIEST WAY TO ORGANIZE, PREVIEW AND ACCESS COMPUTER CLIP ART

 CAMBRIDGE, Mass., June 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Spinnaker Software has eliminated "hide-and-seek" graphics-retrieval with PFS:PowerAlbum for Windows, which provides users with a simple and practical way to organize, preview and access disparate clip art, scans, images and drawings. In addition to the image organizer, PFS:PowerAlbum for Windows also includes 1,000 color clip art images which can augment a user's existing image library or provide a new user with a ready-made clip art solution.
 "Remembering which directory a clip art image or scan resides in is often compounded by what name the file is stored under," said David Chang, Spinnaker product manager. "So often, you know you want a particular image but can't find it, or you can't remember whether the MAN.BMP file is an old man or a young man. PFS:PowerAlbum's thumbnail image representation let you know which image it is immediately. PFS:PowerAlbum is a simple and practical solution for keeping track of every image."
 As clip art and scanned image collection expands, files are typically scattered across numerous directories, drive partitions and network drives. DOS's eight character file name limitation restricts descriptive file names making it difficult to determine image contents. PFS:PowerAlbum for Windows provides image browsing and keyword indexing so that finding the 'right' image is quick and easy. Image "searches" are reduced from several minutes to a few seconds
 To catalog images, PFS:PowerAlbum for Windows generates a "thumbnail" representation and stores it in an "album," file while leaving the original image in its original directory location and file format which maintains image integrity. The album file can be further organized in categories.


PFS:PowerAlbum Features PFS:PowerAlbum for Windows provides a variety of features for ease-of- use:
 -- Flexible Image Organization: Allows an unlimited number of user-
 nameable categories. Images can be catalogued in one or more
 categories and freely moved within and between categories. Users
 can merge or delete categories as well as merge individual album
 files.
 -- Automatic Addition of Images: Users can select an entire
 directory or sub-directory of files to be catalogued in an album,
 eliminating the need to add images individually.
 -- Keyword Search for Images: To find images quickly,
 PFS:PowerAlbum will search the image database by keywords and can
 gather found images into a "found" category for side-by-side
 review. The keywords for 1,000 PFS:PowerAlbum images are built
 into the program's database.
 -- Print Catalog of Images: Users can generate a printed
 PFS:PowerAlbum for easy reference. PFS:PowerAlbum will print
 48 thumbnails per page with the image's filenames. Albums can
 be printed in either draft or final mode.
 -- Color Clip Art Images: PFS:PowerAlbum comes with 1,000 full-
 color .WMF images in 15 different categories.
 -- Popular File Format Support: PFS:PowerAlbum organizes popular
 image file formats including TIF, PCX, BMP, WMF, CGM and DRW.
