Special Summer Edition of MGI PhotoSuite 4 to include free Digital Makeover Magic software worth £19.99

As part of a special summer promotion, MGI is including Digital Makeover Magic – its top-selling makeover and beauty software – with every copy of MGI PhotoSuite 4 Platinum Edition.

Previously sold separately for £19.99, Digital Makeover Magic is a creative program designed for young girls who like to experiment with cosmetics, hairstyles and fashion and find out which colours, styles and accessories suit them best. With expert advice from professional consultants to Jennifer Lopez and Cameron Diaz, the software allows girls (and boys!) to create any number of new looks and images on-screen, and then print them out or email the results to their friends.

MGI PhotoSuite 4 Summer Edition will be available from software retailers in early July 2001 at an SRP of £49.99 including VAT.

For anyone going away this summer, MGI PhotoSuite 4 is ideal for enhancing and editing holiday photos taken with a digital camera, or scanned in from printed snaps. With its huge range of special effects and advanced editing tools, PhotoSuite 4 includes everything a user needs to produce creative projects using their own photos and images, including landscape panoramas, customised postcards and interactive, image-rich web sites. And those who stay at home this year can simply superimpose themselves on a tropical island and pretend they were really there!

With MGI Digital Makeover Magic, users can take their photos one step further and put themselves on the cover of a fashion magazine with its own controversial headlines and jazzy background colours! As well as more than 350 hairstyles (including 30 for boys), 275 make-up colours and over 200 accessories such as jewellery, glasses, piercings, face jewels and hats, expert advice is never more than a click away, as the built-in Beauty Consultant provides on the spot advice from hair and make-up pros. The software also creates a unique personalised colour palette and offers recommended make-up colours based on individual physical characteristics.

The latest version of MGI’s award-winning photo and web software, PhotoSuite 4 Platinum Edition includes an advanced photo stitching feature, the ability to create sophisticated interactive panoramas and animated GIFs for web sites, transparency and cut-out control, as well as support for Photoshop effects plug-ins. With its advanced photo enhancement features, a wealth of templates and content, project-led approach and user-friendly interface, PhotoSuite 4 is still the most comprehensive, yet easy-to-use photo software in its category.
