BugPic - free fossil picture editing software BugPic automates the most common tasks performed by paleontologists on digital photographs:
- Cropping
- Adding a scale bar
- Adding text
- Adjusting brightness and contrast

Additionally, these features make BugPic very useful:
- you can browse directly to a digital camera attached to the microscope
- the size of the cropping square and scale bar can be chosen from a list of canned sizes or manually defined.
- the settings for cropping size and scale bars are "remembered" from picture to picture, so each picture is consistent.
- text can be added to the picture in black or white, with adjustable font size.
- the fossil name can be added to the picture from a stored dictionary.
- for BugWin users, the last fossil selected in the program can easily be added to the picture.
- notes about the picture can be saved and reloaded with the picture.
- BugPic can automatically load the pictures and captions into MS Excel.


BugPic is extremely user friendly. Get an overview and download your free version from:
http://www.bugware.com/BugPic
The download is only 6 megabytes. No registration is required, but feedback and suggestions for improvement are appreciated. Contact Mitch Covington at “mitch at bugware.com” for more information.
