Shortcut Software International Inc. is announcing the release of the new PhotoZoomPro2, S-Spline XL

The new version PhotoZoomPro2 will include an improved re-designed algorithm (named S-Spline XL), this new technology will result in higher output to surpass even the previous award winning Version 1. Perfect photo enlargements are possible with the patented in-house developed Shortcut S-Spline XL technology – self adjusting, advanced interpolation method, which will allow enlargements up to any size without any loss of quality.

The software is perfectly suited for image magnification in DTP, large format printing and industrial image processing (such as space technology, medical applications, security e.g.
police), but also the Internet and digital photography.

With the previous version, PhotoZoomPro 1, which also contained the patented S-Spline Technology; Shortcut, won many international awards (including Cebit America Award)

– Supports IPTC, EXIF and ICC profiles
– Up to 40 % faster enlargement processing than the previous version
