Bibble Labs, Inc announces the immediate availability of version 4.9 of
Bibble Pro and Bibble Lite. Digital photographers have been asking for
a single tool to perform all their image adjustments - not several
tools for specific jobs. Adding Noise Ninja technology and one-touch
image optimization with Perfectly Clear in releases 4.6 and 4.7 went a
long way to building a single tool for all digital darkroom needs; and
with the Cloning & Healing tool in 4.9, Bibble Pro and Bibble
Lite now offer the most complete and self contained workflow. "Many
customers were telling us that cloning to remove blemishes and dust
spots was the only correction they needed to perform in another
" says Eric Hyman, president and CEO of Bibble
Labs. "Including Cloning and Healing, lens distortion
correction, and stuck-pixel removal in one RAW-enabled application
makes Bibble Pro and Lite the one-stop-shop for the digital darkroom.
"Supporting new cameras is critical
" says Hyman. "Folks
buy these brand-new cameras, shoot RAW, and then have a limited range
of software to choose from. Great image manipulation tools don't matter
if your camera is not supported.
" Bibble 4.9 adds support for
all the newest popular cameras including the Sony A100, Nikon D80,
Canon 400D XTi, Panasonic FZ-50, LX2, L1, Leica's DMR and
Leaf’s line of Aptus and Valeo digital backs. Version 4.9
also includes sensor defect correction to remove "hot" or "stuck"
pixels, updated Web Gallery output, 5-Star image rating and includes
French, German and Dutch translations. Users of the recently
discontinued Raw Shooter Professional will be pleased to find an
included importer for moving their ratings and other simple settings
Bibble Labs also officially announces the development of Bibble 5.0,
planned to be the company's next major release. Bibble 5 is based upon
2 years of customer feedback from Bibble 4 and improves upon all
aspects of the program, including workflow, speed, and image quality.
Bibble 5 will support all current operating systems and platforms as
well as 64-bit operating systems. Specific details regarding cost,
availability and upgrade options will be announced at a later date,
however anyone who purchases Bibble 4.9 will receive a free upgrade to
Bibble 5 when it is released, even though Bibble 5 is expected to be
offered at a higher price than Bibble 4.
Bibble is available in both "Pro" and "Lite" versions for
Windows, Macintosh (PPC/Intel as a Universal Binary) and Linux.
