-- March 6, 2007 -- At the annual Photo Marketing Association conference, SeeFile Software LLC (booth K126) is introducing the third generation of its web-based creative collaboration tool, which allows instant web sharing, annotation, and online sales. In contrast to the hosted solutions that are prevalent in the market, SeeFile allows the individual lab owner or professional photographer to take control of their online sales.
Unlike the hosted providers, SeeFile running locally permits large JPEG, RAW and other media files simply to be saved to a local hard disk – the software automatically creates the thumbnails and watermarked previews, and displays them in a simple HTTP web interface. The files can then be remotely accessed from anywhere on the Internet via standard browsers like Safari, Firefox and Internet Explorer. SeeFile 3.0 also introduces a range of advanced functions, such as side-by-side image comparisons, onscreen annotations, and color-coded collections for each user. The Athentech Perfectly Clear technology is simply another function that can be applied to any image on the system.
"We've been thrilled with the market's response to previous versions of the software," said Sam Bogoch, CEO of SeeFile. "We're excited to introduce this new feature-packed version, which also adds a version of the most powerful image correction technology on the market - Perfectly Clear.”
“We’re delighted that SeeFile has selected our award winning algorithms to give SeeFile 3.0 users accurate, visually pleasing, and automatic image correction,” said Brad Malcolm, CEO of Athentech. “Perfectly Clear is the only technology in today’s digital world able to offer Real Color, making images much more lifelike and vibrant. The result being more images are both printed and shared.”
SeeFile User Quote
One user of the software, Igor Perchuk, president of Image Source Productions, has been able to replace both clumsy FTP transfers and limited email attachments with SeeFile. "My customers are able to review and download proofs if I allow them to, upload their own graphical files to the same folders, and communicate approvals with a click. It's a phenomenal way to handle a range of client communication issues that in the past, have really limited small graphics firms like mine. I've been looking for something like this for years."
Free Upgrades Available
SeeFile 3.0 is a free release for owners of earlier versions of the software with an annual upgrade contract, in keeping with the company's "no-surprise" policy.
