AdobeGenuine Fractals free Adobe Photoshop plug-in reader : Free plug-in allows all users of Adobe Photoshop to open and view Genuine Fractals files saved using the .STN file format which significantly reduces the file size of scaled images. onOne Software today announced the immediate availability of a free Genuine Fractals Reader plug-in for Adobe Photoshop. The Genuine Fractals Reader plug-in allows any user of Adobe Photoshop CS or CS2 to open and view an image that was scaled using Genuine Fractals and saved with the .STN file extension. The .STN (pronounced "sting") file format, available only through Genuine Fractals, allows users to significantly reduce the file size of their scaled images without sacrificing image quality.
Free Photoshop plug-in readerGenuine Fractals 4.1 software
The latest version of Genuine Fractals 4.1, released last month, is an image scaling plug-in for Adobe Photoshop that uses a patented, fractal-based algorithm to increase the size and resolution of images with a better retention of detail than other scaling methods available in Photoshop. "I've been a digital photo-grapher for so long my first digital camera was wood burning," said Vincent Versace, Fine Art Photographer and recipient of the 1998 Computerworld Smithsonian Award in Media Arts and Entertainment. "In all that time I have always saved and scaled my files with Genuine Fractals."

Adobe Photoshop plug-in reader - .STN file format
When increasing the size and scale of an image for large format printing, the size of a file increases as well. While large hard drives go a long way toward alleviating local storage concerns of large digital files, transferring and archiving large files can be become more problematic. The Genuine Fractals .STN file format addresses this problem directly by saving the file using loss-less Wavelet compression that significantly reduces the size of a file without sacrificing image quality. For example a 617k image scaled 600% may result in a file size of 46.8 MB when saved as a .PSD file. This same file saved using the .STN file format, while retaining all of the image data, is only 15.9 MB. When saved using an even higher level of compression, the final file size is only 2.9 MB, a savings of 94% from the .PSD file.

Free reader to the Photoshop community
"We're excited to offer this free reader to the Photoshop community," said Craig Keudell, President of onOne Software. "Our users have asked us to provide a solution when they need to provide their .STN files to others. This free plug-in will allow anybody who owns Photoshop CS or CS2 to open and view these .STN files."
