[prMac.com] FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Echo One has released DoubleTake 2.1 for Mac OS X 10.4.
DoubleTake is for stitching photos, screen shots and scans to larger images.
DoubleTake works well with iPhoto and Aperture from where you can drag and drop the photos you want to stitch. With automatic and manual control and color tools for changing exposure settings you can stitch and combine images which were not even intended for stitching.
Poster printing is its newest feature. Some photos, not just panoramas, just deserve to be printed large. DoubleTake splits the photo and prints it on pages ready to be cut and pasted into a poster. Poster printing will let you set the size of the finished poster directly or let you fill a number of pages to the edges to give you the largest poster for the least cutting and pasting.
Stitching automatically can reorder photos in any order but it will recognize the time stamps and file names and try the obvious combinations first. iPhoto users who shoot panoramas left to right will find it quite easy to see which photos are intended for stitching when browsed in iPhoto.
Stitching manually allow for creative stitching and for stitching of photos where it is not obvious which way they fit. Sample images where manual arrangement are also available on DoubleTake's web site.
The manual for DoubleTake is rich with screen shots and written as short as possible while still including all features.
A DoubleTake single user license for €16.95/$21.95 is available in the Echo One online store http://echoone.com/store
