PhotoGIF 3.5 Improves Color Processing -- BoxTop Software has updated PhotoGIF to version 3.5, improving the GIF-creation utility's core color reduction algorithms and revamping its PhotoGIF Filter component. (See "Crunch GIFs Quickly with PhotoGIF" in TidBITS-479.) The update also features a rewritten manual and tighter integration between its components. PhotoGIF 3.5 is a 1.3 MB download and is free for users of PhotoGIF 3.0 and later; otherwise the utility costs $70. [JLC]
