Latest Version Focused on Helping Photographers Capitalize on Growing Client Interest for Professionally "Printed" Albums
PORTLAND, OR and LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Mar 5, 2016) - (WPPI 2016) Fundy Software, creator of Fundy Designer, the only template-free, full suite of design solutions for the professional photographer, today announced Fundy Designer 7.0, featuring the world's first and only patented design technology to enable auto design while maintaining control and creativity for printed albums. Fundy Designer 7, the first complete upgrade in two years, goes beyond prior successful versions to help photographers show clients in person albums that they'll instantly want to own. This new and improved software suite will make its public debut during WPPI Wedding and Portrait Photography Conference + Expo, being held March 7-9 at the MGM Grand Las Vegas.
Since its launch in 2008, word of mouth from one photographer to another has helped Fundy Designer become the industry's leading solution to design, sell, proof and print, all in one application.
World renowned wedding photographer Jerry Ghionis was given exclusive access to this game changing software. His numerous accolades include being named in the first ever list of Top Ten Wedding Photographers in the world by American Photography Magazine. Ghionis is also an eight-time winner of the WPPI international Wedding Album of the Year award. "The new Fundy Designer v7 will revolutionize album design and workflow. I love the creative control I have and the new auto design feature makes album design a breeze even for the newest photographer."
In addition to the professional auto design function, Fundy Designer 7.0 also features a faster and more elegant user interface, redesigned Quick Design Picker®, professional image browser and organizer and increased memory optimization to handle even the biggest projects.
Fundy Software founder and photographer Andrew "Fundy" Funderburg is passionate about the power of print and storytelling. After developing their flagship product Fundy Album Builder and using it for the first time to create one of his first print wedding albums, he'll never forget what happened when the bride handed the book to her grandmother, who had recently become a widow. "When the grandmother saw the picture of her husband, she touched the print," said Fundy. "You could tell it brought her closer to him, if only for a moment. That's when I realized the importance of print -- for clients and their families -- helping to ensure a legacy for their children, grandchildren and generations to come."
Visitors to WPPI 2016 can view a demo of Fundy Designer 7.0 during regular Expo hours at the Marquee Ballroom, Booth #1325.
