Kiev, Ukraine. - May 17, 2007: XVEL Software, the leading developer of photo processing software, today announces the release of Love2Photo program. Love2Photo compresses multiple photo into highly compressed albums. These albums can be viewed on any PC without installing specific helper software, including Love2Photo itself. Love2Photo uses JPEG-2000 algorithm to compress pictures, resulting in averagely 40% smaller file sizes compared to standard JPEG, keeping image quality untouched. Lossy compression mode lets you choose the exact file-size of the album before photos are compressed so you can pack as many photos as you like into a single email or DVD. Love2Photo' albums are wrapped in Adobe(tm) PDF file format to make them accessible through the Web or on local PCs with Adobe(tm) and Foxit(tm) Reader programs. Love2Photo uses Adobe(tm) Linearized technology to optimize albums for fast reviewing over the Web. To achieve additional compression level Love2Photo can shrink image sizes (i.e. width and height) using high-quality resampling method. Additionally it can create slideshows (12 different slide transition effects); protect photos with 128-bit AES encryption (separate permissions can be set for viewing, modifying and printing); work with multi-page image files; add description and labels to the photos.

All these features give you the way to save averagely 40% of your time when sharing photo; to avoid pain emailing large pictures that exceed an ISP's file size limits; to save money on storage media and Internet traffic; to protect your private pictures from prying eyes or unwanted modifications. Love2Photo can be a perfect gift idea for the people who want to motivate friends or family to send them hot photos.
