iPix InfoMedia announced on Tuesday the immediate availability of

The upgrade, which is free for existing users, adds support for Fujifilm’s FinePix s7000 and FinePix S20 Pro digital cameras as well as new tools on the paint photo palette, a typing utility for adding text directly to images and new selection tools for creating hot spots and editing photos.

The plug-in upgrades are $499 each when purchased separately. All licenses last for a year and must be renewed at the end of the term.
