Avenza Systems Inc., producers of MAPublisher cartographic software for Adobe Illustrator and PDF Maps for Apple iOS, recently announced the release of the Geographic Imager 4.1 basic license for Adobe Photoshop. The newly available Basic license provides the well-known georeference framework of Geographic Imager to Adobe Photoshop and the ability to import and export limited file formats at an introductory price point.
The Basic license can import all supported spatial imagery that the Full license can (some file size restrictions apply to non-native Adobe Photoshop formats), and allows for limited export to major GIS formats including GeoTIFF and geospatial PDF.
“Geographic Imager is recognised in the geospatial software industry as a powerful geospatial import and export tool, and as an important framework for enabling geospatial referencing thorough a Photoshop workflow. The Basic license lowers the price of entry by offering the most essential geospatial functions to users who may not necessarily need the full Geographic Imager toolset,” said Ted Florence, President of Avenza Systems. “An upgrade to a full license is available for users who decide to jump to the entire Geographic Imager suite of tools to take advantage of features like transforming, cropping, mosaicking and tiling”, he added.
Geographic Imager Basic License features
- Maintains the georeference framework of Geographic Imager in Adobe Photoshop
- Ability to read Geographic Imager supported file formats up to 1 GB – no limit on native Adobe Photoshop file formats.
- Ability to export to major GIS raster formats including GeoTIFF, geospatial PDF, and JPEG 2000.
Geographic Imager is software for Adobe Photoshop that transforms it into a powerful geospatial imagery editing tool.
