Photodex Corporation Introduces CompuPic for Macintosh

First full-featured thumbnail viewer and file manager for Macintosh market will be generally available in October

Austin TX, October 22, 1997 - Photodex Corporation, a leading provider of innovative imaging and multimedia applications, announces a Macintosh version of its popular CompuPic Multimedia Viewer/File Manager software. With just a handful of competitors in the Mac market, Photodex is introducing the first multitasking, feature-rich file manager and thumbnail viewer for the Mac OS that supports all popular multimedia file formats.

Introduced as a PC-based product in 1995, CompuPic for Windows has enjoyed huge success with more than 1 million copies distributed primarily over the Internet.

Photodex expects to make the Mac version generally available to users in October from its Web site, The company's "try before you buy" policy will let individuals download CompuPic for Mac over the Internet for 15 days of free, unlimited use prior to purchasing it for $39.95. Discounted pricing for multi-user licensing will also be available.

Ideal for the home computer user or business professional who needs to easily collect, store, index, retrieve and incorporate graphic art, photos, sound and video into creative projects and online communications, CompuPic offers unmatched speed and advanced yet easy-to-use tools at an affordable price.

Unlike slow, hard-to-master programs that focus more on complex editing capabilities than quick retrieval and management of multimedia files, CompuPic offers Mac users a fun way to view, enhance and organize digital photos, clip art, sound and video files. It is basic enough for a novice user, yet sophisticated enough to meet the needs of experienced graphic designers, webmasters and network administrators.

CompuPic is the first viewer/file manager in the Mac market to offer advanced capabilities like:

  • true multitasking - by simultaneously performing several operations at once, CompuPic is the fastest viewer/file manager in its class
  • MaxiShow - on-screen presentations with GIF images, video and sound effects
  • customized wallpaper - lets users personalize their desktops with a favorite photo, illustration or graphic pattern.
"No one else today in the Mac market offers a combined thumbnail viewer/file manager that even comes close to CompuPic," said Scott Schinlever, President and CEO, for Photodex. "Both novice and advanced multimedia users will find CompuPic for Mac a great add-on tool to applications like Microsoft Office and Adobe Photoshop. CompuPic has already become popular with Windows users, and we expect an even better response in the Mac market due to its higher concentration of multimedia enthusiasts and online graphics professionals. CompuPic offers a fast, fun and affordable way to manage multimedia."

System Requirements

Compact enough to download easily at less than 1MB, CompuPic for Mac runs on Mac OS version 7.0.1 or higher and requires at least 8MB of available RAM. It will run on Apple, Macintosh or compatible hardware with a Power PC, 68020 or faster processor.
