Say Cheese: Metacreations Releases Photo-Editing Software

MetaCreations Corp. this week made available Kai's Photo Soap 2, the latest version of the popular photo editing software.

The new version is designed to enable people with a camera and a computer to put their photos on the Web, by converting digital images to HTML format. It also features an integrated, intuitive environment for correcting or editing photos and creating digital content.

Included in Photo Soap 2 is a tool for the creation of 3D picture cubes for the Web, and the PhotoMailer tool for e-mailing interactive slide shows.

This latest release provides simple controls and animated tools for instant cropping, touch up and color correction of photos. Users will now be able to "clean" up their photos, and create custom slide shows and photo albums to share with others on the Web. The tool also features a large selection of templates, cartoon and photo-realistic clip art to create a professional look and feel.

Soap 2 will be available in January for a retail price of $49.95.
