BenVista PhotoZoom Pro 4

December 11, 2010

I’ve talked about previous versions of BenVista PhotoZoom Pro in the blog before. Many of you have probably been exposed to an older version because it is included in CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X5. BenVista has now released PhotoZoom Pro 4 and I wanted to give you a list of some of the new features. The good news is that if you have registered the copy of PhotoZoom Pro 2 included with CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X5, you are eligible for upgrade pricing on the new version.

So you might ask, what is different from the version included with CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X5. Below is a list of the major changes.

  • New & improved S-Spline resizing technique: S-Spline Max*
  • Higher quality image enlargements & higher quality downsizing
  • Can also be used as a Stand-alone application (64-bit and 32-bit)
  • Can also be used as Automation and Export plug-ins within Adobe Photoshop (64-bit and 32-bit)*
  • Multi-processor support: big speed increase!
  • Advanced new technology for reducing JPEG compression artifacts and noise*
  • Film Grain functionality, for an increased natural look
  • Batch processing (through Stand-alone version)
  • New common print and pixel size presets*
  • Improved metadata support
  • Supports layers (through Automation plug-in)
  • Supports 32 bits/channel (HDR) images (through Automation plug-in)
  • Supports more image file formats (through Automation plug-in)
  • Also available for Mac (Universal)

The items marked with an asterisk are new and/or improved since PhotoZoom Pro 3. For those of you who need to upsample images on a regular basis, this is a fantastic piece of software. You can see example images to see just how well it does. The new enhancements make it even better when your original leaves a lot to be desired. Upgrade pricing is $99 and the full version is $219. You can get either in the BenVista store.

There is also a “classic” version with fewer features than the pro version. You can look at the feature comparison chart to see the differences. Given the upgrade pricing available to users of CorelDRAW X5, you’ll most likely want to go for the pro version.
