Awesome SW used for years by myself and pros to enlarge and enhance photos. Never ever had a problem from it. Updates might be slightly $ but when you need it, you need it. Great product.

a good update but try the demo before you shell out for the upgrade. The GPU speeds aren't much better for mobile machines or older video cards and can be slower.

Why only one star? This is not the developers fault.

Assigning one star because of an error in the listing is an abuse of the rating system and a disservice to other Mac Update users.

Would be nice to afford it but a touch pricey.

This is more a demo since it leaves a unremovable watermark on the image that has been resized.

My studio has been using Photozoom to work with publication images for a national magazine with excellent results all the time.

For the Reviews section, we often receive low-res images from the client because that's all they have access to. To save time and aggravation, we use Photozoom to "res-up" the images with great results.

I recommend it to anyone working on publication design.

Can anybody say whether this version or the previous version beats Genuine Fractals Print Pro? We have several copies of GFPP and would like to move to this for batch processing if the quality is equivalent or better.

I generally like PZPro's results better than GF's. Sometimes the difference is small, sometimes quite significant. Haven't got much experience yet with this new v3, but it seems to produce more detailed results than v2, whereas GF sometimes produces somewhat fuzzy results. Note that PZ Pro (when using S-Spline Max) takes longer to process than GF, but worth the difference imho (and not an issue if you batch I guess).

I still very much like the PZ Pro coz I use it everyday for my work, but I guess I'll stay away from updating it to V3 for a while. It's quite expensive.

For those who like the same effects (not very far from the results of PZ) but a whole lot cheaper (free). Try this:

I've tested it and the results look very decent. The price is $0.00

That's my 2 cents.

I still love PZoom tho!

Mr.-Spock had trouble on 04 Jul 2009
When the new "S-Spline Max" is selected, the result looks like "nearest neighbour" is used instead.
I hope this will be fixed soon.

As one of the programmers of PhotoZoom Pro 3, I'm pleased to inform you that this has been fixed (see new version on our website).

This issue occurred on some PowerPC systems, but now it produces the correct result everywhere.
