ArcSoft Enhances and Renames PhotoFantasy Software With Funhouse; Enriched Content and Fresh Interface Mean More Fun for Users
Calif., Fremont, United States

ArcSoft Inc., a leading provider of digital imaging software technologies, Thursday announced the availability of ArcSoft Funhouse(TM). Formerly named PhotoFantasy, Funhouse is an intuitive, easy-to-use digital imaging software program that enables consumers of any skill level to insert their personal photos and text into a variety of fantasy images.

Enhanced with a brand new interface and loaded with over 150 unique fantasy templates, ArcSoft Funhouse provides powerful editing tools that enable the seamless combination of two or more photos to create funny or realistic scenes. Funhouse users can easily insert the images of friends and family onto a quarterback's body, a rock star, $100 bills or any of the other ready-to-use templates. Or, they can create their own customized template in a matter of minutes.

The new Funhouse interface consists of a simplified, five-step automated process that captures, manipulates and edits digital images and text almost effortlessly. First, users select a stock Funhouse image or create a customized template, and choose a personal photo from a hard drive, digital camera or other source. The Funhouse program features a new editing tool whereby users then "mask out" areas of the template, often a face, so that their photos can be placed inside. The program directs them to fine-tune the new template for color, size, orientation and position. Users can then add text boxes to create a personalized message, and print or email the final product to friends or family.

"Our established OEM and consumer customer base loved the PhotoFantasy product, and with Funhouse's compelling interface and a slew fun new templates, we hope to engage a new digital imaging community who were previously hesitant about manipulating their photos," said Chris Bethell, director of marketing at ArcSoft. "Funhouse lets people enjoy their digital photographs in new and exciting ways, without having a professional design background."
