Title ALSee v5 Beta Available (Korean release only)
Date 2008-04-25 Hit 7040
Seoul, South Korea - June 29th, 2006 - The ALTools team at ESTsoft today released the first ALSee v5.0 beta picture viewer and photo editor for the Windows family of operating systems.
The ALSee v5 beta includes numerous new features and improvements across every aspect of the software. From faster image rendering to more online services, the new ALSee increases functionality, usability and user convenience.
The ALSee digital photo editor has a major overhaul in v5 with a completely new UI designed for easier and faster editing. While everything in the photo editor has been improved, major new additions include red-eye reduction tools, skew tools, and a movie maker to turn digital photographs into slide show videos.
Other fun additions to the photo editor include improved picture frames with more picture frame templates, easier picture overlays with a new built-in gallery of fun stamps, and point & click special effects.
The improved "photo basket" system in ALSee lets people browse at their leisure and put pictures in various baskets for dealing with later. Baskets provide easy access to ALSee Online services, photo editing, batch editing, the ALSee Movie Maker, and file management.
The ALSee Online photo services let people quickly email digital photo albums to friends and family, create web albums to share online, get prints of their digital photos, or edit and send pictures to mobile phones in just a few clicks.
The picture browser and viewer in ALSee v5 have been re-engineered with speed and ease in mind, providing an elegant UI that's just as powerful as it is simple to use. Faster image rendering in ALSee and easier control over thumbnail sizes makes browsing large directories of digital photos almost instantaneous.
For viewing large pictures, a new semi-transparent photo panner thumbnail facilitates browsing their large surface areas at lightning speed, eliminating the need for cumbersome scrollbars and repetitive "grip and drag" operations.
Numerous other conveniences have been added to make virtually every aspect of photo viewing and editing faster and easier. A few improvements include a new "Film" view mode, options to display picture size and bit depth while browsing, and a redesigned Preferences dialog that is cleaner and quicker to use.
ALSee is the most popular picture viewer and digital photo editor in South Korea and can be downloaded for free at www.altools.co.kr. The current ALSee v5 beta is available in Korean only.
ALSee is available for free at www.altools.co.kr along with the entire ALTools family of PC utilities: ALZip, ALShow, ALSong, ALSee, ALFTP, and ALPass. ALGIF and ALMap are available only in Korean. English and other language versions can be downloaded for free at www.altools.net.
