After looking at most graphic viewers, I decided on Makaha for it's rich features and the ability to create instant slide shows. And the graphic file compression and conversion lets me have the best quality at the smallest size possible for my web site.

EZV Video Capture was just what I needed to get those special pictures from my family videos. Thank you!

   Awards & Reviews

Makaha is literally one of the best programs I have ever dealt with in terms of pictures of any sort. The quality of the picture when using it for resizing is absolutely amazing. I have seen excellent artwork from friends done with this program as well. Always best to support a smaller technology group who seems to be ahead of their time by a step or two.

Press Release for Makaha

Fully-Integrated Windows Multimedia Powerhouse

June 3, 2004 Brandyware Software has released Makaha v. 6.1, a fully-integrated Windows application that lets you manage, enhance, and enjoy your photos and videos. Unlike other multimedia solutions that make you buy and learn to use several programs, Makaha gives you a single, intuitive interface for viewing, editing, and compressing images, turning images into GIF and AVI animations, and viewing videos, slide shows, and thumbnails.

Makaha's visual image editor lets you quickly enhance your photos. You can modify a picture's contrast, hue, brightness, and gamma. Add stunning effects such as oil, embossing, and mosaic. Makaha is compatible with PhotoShop plug-ins, enabling you to add hundreds of special effects to your images, from dozens of independent software developers worldwide.

The program has a powerful file selector that works with the Quick Shots function, a nearly-instant way to look at groups of graphics. You can quickly turn any group of images into a slide show, or a collection of thumbnail pictures. Collections of thumbnails can be converted into web pages that are ready to view and enjoy on the Internet.

You can convert graphics in batches, changing their names, sizes, visual properties, and file formats. The built-in file compression creates images that are up to 200 times smaller than the original size. You can add textures, add text to graphic images, and watermark your pictures.

Makaha has all of the graphics extras that you'd expect to find in a high-end graphics powerhouse. You can view icons and convert them to BMP images, view the Windows clipboard, and use a full-screen color picker to get the exact hue and saturation that you want. You can even do pixel-level search and replace operations in your pictures. Makaha lets you view images inside ZIP files, without having to unzip them first. Enter a search term, and Makaha will scour the Internet for matching graphics, giving you thumbnail images of everything that it finds.

With Makaha, you get a viewer, editor, graphics compressor, GIF and AVI animation creator, video viewer, slide show, screen saver creator, and thumbnail viewer, all in one professional package. Whether you're a business person who needs to maintain images and videos for your catalogs, brochures, and web site, or a hobbyist who wants to take control of your collection of family, travel, and hobby photos and movies, Makaha has the tools that you need.

Makaha v. 6.1 runs under Windows 95/98/Me/NT4/2000/XP, costs $49.95(US), and may be purchased securely online at http://www.brandyware.com/. Multi-user discounts are available. You can download a free, fully-functional 40 day trial version of Makaha from the same web address.
