Ulead GIF Animator Trial Surpasses 1 Million Downloads.

Business Editors

TORRANCE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 5, 2001

Ulead Systems Inc., a leading developer of image editing, video editing and Web graphics software, today announced that more than 1 million people have downloaded a trial version of Ulead GIF Animator from CNET, a popular online source of software downloads.

This marks the first time any Ulead product has surpassed this important milestone.

More than 4 years ago, Ulead GIF Animator was the first animation tool developed specifically for GIF animation creation. Today, it remains the most popular GIF animation tool with more than 1 million downloads at CNET alone -- more downloads than any competing GIF animation tool.

Introduced in April, Ulead GIF Animator 5 is a major upgrade to the world's leading and first to market stand-alone GIF animation tool. GIF Animator 5 delivers a wide array of feature enhancements that make animation creation and optimization more streamlined than ever before.

A new True Color object model allows users to manipulate and create multiple object animations quickly and easily, and support for roundtrip auto-updating from external image editors sets a new standard for integration.

"Creating animated GIFs should not be difficult or time consuming," said Colwin Chan, product marketing manager at Ulead Systems. "We attribute the popularity of Ulead GIF Animator to its powerful features, which reside in a simple, user-friendly interface."

Ulead GIF Animator 5 is available in retail and online stores for Windows 98, Windows NT 4.0, Windows ME and Windows 2000. The estimated street price for GIF Animator 5 is $49.95. Owners of earlier GIF Animator versions may upgrade to Version 5 for $29.95.

A downloadable version will be available for $44.95, as well as a downloadable upgrade for $24.95. For more information on GIF Animator 5 and other Ulead products, visit Ulead's site at or call 800/85-ULEAD (800/858-5323).
