Ephox Helps Non-Technical Users Create Compelling Web Content With the Latest Release of EditLive!

SAN MATEO, CA and BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA--(Marketwire - September 10, 2008) - Ephox, the leading provider of authoring software for web content, announced the latest release of its online rich text editor, EditLive!. The significant new feature in EditLive! 6.5 is the image editing tool that helps non-technical users quickly and easily create compelling web content.

EditLive!'s inline image editing feature crops, resizes and rotates images with the click of a button, in addition to creating special effects like drop shadow, reflection and rounded corners. Images are automatically resized and resampled to ensure web appropriate file sizes. There is no need to manipulate images in a separate window or use complicated image editing software -- a real time-saver for web authors and a money-saver for IT departments.

"EditLive! 6.5 breaks new ground by enabling business users to create the sophisticated, rich and interactive websites needed to be successful in today's marketplace," said Ephox Director of Products Damien Fitzpatrick. "Today's business users demand seamless text and image editing performance and Ephox recognizes this."

In addition to usability improvements, some of the new features in EditLive! 6.5 include the ability to customize the color palette for greater consistency, auto-correct for fixing common typing errors, and added dialects for a total of 28 user interface and international language libraries.

All of the features in the latest release are included in the EditLive! Enterprise Edition which adds advanced productivity, multimedia and collaboration tools like the new image editor, track changes, thesaurus, auto correct, and an advanced Java API library.
