Extensis launch pxl SmartScale for precise scaling of photographic imagesExtensis today announced the launch of pxl SmartScale, a new Photoshop plug-in for increasing the resolution of digital images without compromising quality. Powered by Celartem, Inc.s advanced scaling technology, PixelLive TM, SmartScale offers easy, intuitive image scaling up to 1600% with no discernable loss in printed quality.

From digital photographers to graphic designers, creative professionals who manipulate digital images using Adobe Photoshop will benefit from SmartScales easy-to-use scaling interface. While seeing results in a real-time preview, users can scale and crop images, adjust sharpness, edge detail and edge contrast settings without ever leaving the Photoshop environment.

SmartScale is a breakthrough in scaling technology, said Lisa McCormack, SmartScale product manager for Extensis. Until now, creative professionals needed to rescan original negatives or use cumbersome software in order to create satisfactory images. Now with SmartScale users have an intuitive, easy-to-use software that delivers best-in-class results.

Using Celartems patent-pending PixelLive TM technology, SmartScale increases image resolution while preserving the original colour brightness and edge geometry. This information is then applied to the scaling process creating highest quality press-ready results.
