Fully-Integrated Windows Multimedia Powerhouse

(PRWEB) June 27, 2004

Brandyware Software has released Makaha v. 6.1, a fully-integrated Windows application that lets you manage, enhance, and enjoy your photos and videos. Unlike other multimedia solutions that make you buy and learn to use several programs, Makaha gives you a single, intuitive interface for viewing, editing, and compressing images, turning images into GIF and AVI animations, and viewing videos, slide shows, and thumbnails.

Makaha's visual image editor lets you quickly enhance your photos. You can modify a picture's contrast, hue, brightness, and gamma. Add stunning effects such as oil, embossing, and mosaic. Makaha is compatible with PhotoShop plug-ins, enabling you to add hundreds of special effects to your images, from dozens of independent software developers worldwide.

The program has a powerful file selector that works with the Quick Shots function, a nearly-instant way to look at groups of graphics. You can quickly turn any group of images into a slide show, or a collection of thumbnail pictures. Collections of thumbnails can be converted into web pages that are ready to view and enjoy on the Internet.

You can convert graphics in batches, changing their names, sizes, visual properties, and file formats. The built-in file compression creates images that are up to 200 times smaller than the original size. You can add textures, add text to graphic images, and watermark your pictures.

Makaha has all of the graphics extras that you'd expect to find in a high-end graphics powerhouse. You can view icons and convert them to BMP images, view the Windows clipboard, and use a full-screen color picker to get the exact hue and saturation that you want. You can even do pixel-level search and replace operations in your pictures. Makaha lets you view images inside ZIP files, without having to unzip them first. Enter a search term, and Makaha will scour the Internet for matching graphics, giving you thumbnail images of everything that it finds.

With Makaha, you get a viewer, editor, graphics compressor, GIF and AVI animation creator, video viewer, slide show, screensaver creator, and thumbnail viewer, all in one professional package. Whether you're a business person who needs to maintain images and videos for your catalogs, brochures, and web site, or a hobbyist who wants to take control of your collection of family, travel, and hobby photos and movies, Makaha has the tools that you need.

Makaha v. 6.1 runs under Windows 95/98/Me/NT4/2000/XP, costs $ 49.95(US), and may be purchased securely online at . Multi-user discounts are available. You can download a free, fully-functional 40 day trial version of Makaha from the same web address.
