LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--On January 16, LayerCake Inc. will open a 30-day crowdfunding opportunity for its pioneering technology, StudioMagic for Photoshop. Because of its expanding library of StudioMagic digital assets, the application is quickly outgrowing the storage space necessary to be housed on user’s personal computers. In order to offset this, all future digital assets must be stored and accessed from a cloud-based library.
Crowdfunding participants, through Kickstarter.com, will be rewarded with LayerCake and StudioMagic collections and software for helping make possible the infrastructure, software and technical expertise for this next large step. Opportunities range from five dollars to $4,999. Participation and further information is available on StudioMagic’s Kickstarter page at: kck.st/2gDLk70 or search StudioMagic
LayerCake/StudioMagic arms photographers, graphic designers and artists with a vast library of cutout/masked accent images to mouse-click into their creations. Installed into Photoshop CS-5 – CC 2017, StudioMagic is controlled by a seamless graphic interface that easily triggers complicated Photoshop tasks like making complicated cutouts, creating realistic shadows, water and mirror reflections, seasonal changes, interior and exterior lighting effects, tonal and contrast presets. Its Compositor library offers the user a choice of accent images that can be placed automatically into the user’s images and adjusted with simple sliders.
The cloud-based system will offer users choices of thousands of accent images to select from, that can be easily accessed through the StudioMagic Photoshop interface, saving disk space, workflow time and making Photoshop easier to use.
In the past two years, LayerCake’s StudioMagic plug-in for Adobe Photoshop has filled an important void in the image compositing world, becoming Photoshop’s de facto simplification tool for thousands of professional photographers, photo artists, graphic designers and Photoshop hobbyists.
LayerCake Inc. was founded by Harry Kerker and Alan Meyer in 2009 out of their frustration with mastering Photoshop to improve their image creations.
