Netherlands-based software developer, BenVista, has announced the release of its new photo resizing software, PhotoZoom 5.

The release includes two versions, PhotoZoom Pro 5 and PhotoZoom Classic 5, which are available now for both Windows and Mac platforms. Version 5 uses BenVista’s patented, award-winning S-Spline(R) technologies and the latest versions can remove noise and JPEG compression artifacts. A new addition is the option to combine cropping and resizing into one process. This makes it easy to for example convert a photo with a 4:3 width-to-height ratio into 16:9 (Full HD), without stretching the picture out of its original proportions. The redesigned interface layout is more user firendly and improvements to workflow include an  option to create ‘resize profiles’, which can be saved as  full compilations of the user’s favourite settings that will be selectable with a single click.

Demo versions of PhotoZoom Pro 5 and PhotoZoom Classic 5 can be downloaded directly from the BenVista website: Upgrade options are available for existing PhotoZoom users.
