MGI, a leader in visual media software products and infrastructure, today announced a special edition of its market-leading PhotoSuite 4 software for Easter 2001. Scheduled to be available in-store from 26 March 2001, the new package includes a bonus CD containing 1,500 high resolution Photo Objects and 5,000 clip art images from Hemera Technologies worth £27.99, plus a useful paperback guide to image editing and digital video.

MGI PhotoSuite 4 Easter Edition is available from PC World, Electronics Boutique, Game, Staples, Comet, and other software retailers for £49.99 including VAT.

Ideal for creating unique greetings cards for special occasions such as Mother’s Day or Easter, or even custom-made gift-wrap, MGI PhotoSuite 4 includes all the tools a user needs to produce creative projects using their own photos and images. With the addition of the Hemera photo objects and clip art, users can also add colourful props, cartoons and other images to jazz up their creations.

Create an online Easter card!

MGI PhotoSuite 4 offers many features for sharing photos and projects online, as well as step-by-step guides for creating and publishing image-rich web sites. For example, the user can take a series of photos of their family, friends, a new baby or favourite pet, and turn them into an animated Easter card web page with personalised text, banners, links and music – and then email the site to all their friends and relatives to share around the world.
