News release
16th December 2009


Avanquest Software Publishing, a leading developer and publisher of business and consumer software for the global PC market, is soon to release Photo Explosion Deluxe 4.0. Compatible with all digital cameras, this photo manipulation package gives budding photographers the opportunity to produce professional quality pictures and share them with friends and family around the world.


Photo Explosion Deluxe 4.0 can be used to create thousands of personalised items such as calendars, greetings cards and postcards. Artistic effects are easily applied and objects can be drawn and outlined using free hand tools, making the software perfect for producing collages and scrapbooks. Old and damaged photos or collages can be repaired or enhanced and included as if new using transparency and clone tools.


The software features a Makeover Studio that allows users to alter photos before directly uploading them to social networking sites such as Facebook™, Flickr™ and SendPhotos™. Using the software, the simple tools are able to remove blemishes, smooth skin, add a tan and brighten teeth. Colour, saturation and sharpness adjustment tools are also included for making additional enhancements.


A FantaMorph tool can be used to merge one photo into another, allowing users to play around with their snaps and create entertaining projects. 3D effects, drop shadows, text effects, gradients and artistic effects can be applied to give pictures a new look. Photographs can also be stitched together to create panoramas with automatic alignment and colour-blending tools.


Photo Explosion Deluxe 4.0 encourages users to share their projects with family and friends as in just seconds, pictures can be sent to mobile phones or via email. Music and video can also be incorporated into slideshows and the end project watched on a TV screen. Videos created using the software can be instantly uploaded to sites such as YouTube™ and Facebook™ to share across the web.


Users can organise photos into albums for fast searching and the use of keywords and ratings make individual pictures easily identifiable. The software makes backing-up simple as photos can be archived and burnt onto a CD to keep them safe. The fourth instalment of Photo Explosion™ features over 10,000+ graphics and photo projects and is compatible with Windows® XP Windows Vista® and Windows® 7.
