Corel and Lexar Team to Automate Digital Imaging Workflow
Corel® Paint Shop Pro® Family of Software Supports Lexar® ActiveMemory™ System to Enable Automatic Processing of Photos During Download
Savvy digital camera users are looking to transform each photo they take into high quality images. But, transferring large batches of photos from the digital camera to the computer and then editing each photo one-by-one can be time-consuming. By leveraging the new interoperability between Paint Shop Pro X software and AMS, photos may be automatically edited—according to the user’s set preferences—while they are downloaded to the computer. The result is a seamless, customized digital imaging workflow.
"We are thrilled to partner with Lexar to streamline the digital imaging workflow and to dramatically reduce production time for our customers," said Blaine Mathieu, General Manager, Digital Imaging at Corel. "Corel is committed to providing its customers with the fastest, easiest and highest quality solution for their digital imaging needs. Combining the industry-leading automation capabilities of our Paint Shop Pro X software with Lexar’s ActiveMemory System aligns precisely with what our customers want—less tinkering with technology to achieve perfect photos every time."
Using the ActiveMemory System is an easy, two-step process:
Since the Lexar ActiveMemory System preserves the AMS portion of memory, the script remains even after the card has been reformatted in the camera. As a result, the AMS card is always "automation-ready" until the photographer removes the script using Paint Shop Pro X.
"Partnering with Corel was a natural choice. Both companies were looking to make the digital imaging workflow more productive and satisfying for our customers," said Dave Klenske, director of product marketing, memory card business unit, Lexar. "By creating a technical link between Corel’s Paint Shop Pro family of software and our Lexar ActiveMemory System, we are able to help our customers achieve the quality photos they want - with so much less time and energy dedicated to the process."
The Lexar ActiveMemory System is supported by the latest releases of Corel Paint Shop Pro (10.03 or later) and Corel Photo Album (6.3.4 or later).
