JoeSoft opens with Klix
Prosoft Engineering launched its new JoeSoft division with Klix, a program for recovering deleted, corrupted or or reformatted images on memory cards. Cameras and readers can be connected via FireWire or USB, and the software is said to recover all "common" image formats, including JPEG, TIFF, GIF and PNG files, as well as RAW formats used by the likes of Canon, Nikon, Minolta and Olympus. AVI, MPEG and MOV videos can also be saved. Users personally specify where recovered images are sent. There are only two significant limitations to the program: it cannot repair corrupted cards, and it is unable to retrieve reformatted photos from xD cards used by Olympus and FujiFilm cameras. The program is a Universal Binary for Mac OS X 10.2.4 and is on sale today for $50.
