AsukaBook USA (Bend, OR, www.asukabook.com) recently introduced AsukaBook Maker 2 and the AsukaBook InDesign Tool at the Imaging USA Expo in San Antonio, TX. Designed to make the layout of AsukaBook albums easy, both applications feature a simple interface with many image-enhancement tools. For ease of use, similar functions are grouped together in categories such as layout templates, Sloppy Borders, masks, drop shadows and keylines. Both applications also feature the drag-and-drop technique for inserting images and layouts, as well as applying masks and Sloppy Borders. While offering the same functionality, AsukaBook InDesign Tool also delivers a more efficient workflow for customers who use Adobe InDesign. Both applications can be downloaded free-of-charge from the AsukaBook Web site.
