Looking for an image processor that would offer advanced options and features, yet would not cost a fortune? AVD Graphic Studio, to put it simply, is a mini Photoshop, offering very similar capabilities at a fraction of the cost. It provides over 20 tools to work with images – cropping, resizing, rotating, bump mapping, histogram equalization, mirroring (horizontal and vertical), special effects filters and many more handy options for image manipulations. While AVD Graphic Studio can be used by any amateur, who just recently purchased digital camera, the software does offer quite a few sophisticated options for professional designers and digital artists. For instance, AVD Graphic Studio acquires images from TWAIN scanners and can be used to regulate contrast, HSL, HSV/HSB and RGB settings. AVD Graphic Studio comes with four modules – MultiPage, Video, Animation and Batch Processing. The first module, as it names suggests, is show all kinds of FAX images, multipage FAX and multipage TIFF images (rev.6.0, Packbits, LZW, CCITT G.3 and G.4) with RGB, CMYK, B/W, animated GIF and Multipage PCX (DCX). Also FAX (CCITT3), G3F and G3N (Zetafax) formats supported for loading. The second Video module allows users to capture individual frames from video files in order to create animated GIF files. The third module creates animated GIF files from a set of static images (tif, tiff, fax, gif, jpg, jpeg, jpe, pcx, bmp, dib, rle, ico, cur, png, wmf, emf, tga, targa, vda, icb, vst, pix, pxm, ppm, pgm, pbm). The fourth module, as it names suggests, is intended for processing multiple images in batches. The module supports all common image formats and offers conversion, resampling, resizing and resolution readjustment options, among others.
