Econ Technologies on Wednesday issued a sneak peek of
Portraits & Prints 2.0, with news that a Pro Edition will accompany the application when it ships early next month. This upgrade to the company’s photo studio software will enable you to print your photos away from your Mac, add word balloons to your images, download new templates inside the application with the Template Manager and more.
New features in the Pro Edition will include the ability to create custom templates, rotate images and alter the opacity and color, add shadows or masks to pictures and more. This version of Portraits & Prints will be US$50, while the consumer edition will be $30. Upgrades from the first version are free, however, so before the new one ships you can buy the software now for $20 and save $10 on the full version price. You can also purchase Portraits & Prints and the separate application TemplateMaker for $30 and upgrade to the Pro Edition for free when it ships. Econ Technologies did not disclose system requirements for the new software.
