New features 

New options to create jobs, from subject lists and dummies

When opening Netlife Photolink Pro click create job and a pop up window with three options will show.

Choose to create a new job based on a name list, create an empty job or a job with dummies. If you choose the last option you may name the groups and number of subjects in each group. This way you don`t have to add all groups and subjects manually in Photolink before shooting.

Please be aware that portals that don’t allow Photolink-created jobs will decline upload to server on such jobs.

Image rotation using the crop dialog to adjust horizon 

Double click the picture to open full size view.

Click the crop picture button.

Find a line in the picture you wish to rotate the picture according to. In this case the horizontal line in the picture is tilted. We wish to straighten the picture according to one of the steps the group is standing on. Right click, drag the computer mouse along the line you wish to rotate by and release the button.

Watch the picture rotate/straighten.

If you’re happy with the result press save as new or overwrite image.

Allow png import
