Subject: [Leica] New photo program for web images

There's a new program from Adobe that is supposed to optimize photos for
the web. It's called "Image Ready 1.0" and it's in beta right now. It's 8
megs and you can download it from the adobe site:

It's good until July 15. It's supposed to cost $299 when it sells. I
suspect that's the list price.

It looks a lot like Photoshop. But it's supposed to help you make an image
ideal for web publishing, and does transparencies that have no "halos" and
such. Anyway, for those publishing their Leica images on the web
(worthwhile or not I won't make any claims) here's a free chance to give it
a shot. Windows and Mac versions are available, but no tech support.
