This week marked the 5th anniversary of Vivid-Pix Fix and to celebrate the team have announced some major new features. The software now supports Canon, Fuji, Nikon, Olympus, SeaLife, and Sony RAW, DNG, TIFF, PNG and JPEG images. The software is also now available for both Windows and Mac platforms.
In addition, acclaimed underwater photographer. Cathy Church, is to provide video instruction of these new capabilities.
“Photographers, photo instructors, and many pros within the scuba and photo industries love our software, but asked us to support these other file formats… and we listened,” explains Rick Voight, CEO of Vivid-Pix. “We then considered how to best help folks learn how to use the software. Who better than Cathy Church, who already teaches photographers, instructors, stores, and dive operators how to get better photos!”
“I was thrilled when Rick asked me to develop his training tutorials,” says Cathy Church, underwater photo pioneer, author of six books, countless articles, and owner of Cathy Church Photo Centre in Grand Cayman. “Since before Vivid-Pix was a company, I’ve been amazed at what Randy [Fredlund] has accomplished with the software development – and now by adding these other formats, everyone can enjoy the fun and easy-to-get terrific underwater and topside photos.”
“As more and more cameras and photographers began using file formats beyond JPEG, the need to expand the capabilities of our software became apparent,” explains Randy Fredlund, CTO of Vivid-Pix. “The software programmers rose to the challenge and the resulting software and images tell the story.”
