in the German part of this forum gmhofmann asked for some help concerning a text about PhotoLine for the English Wikipedia.
The former article was deleted because of the claim that it sounds like advertisement.
I'm not a good writer therefore I translated the German text with Google translator and finally tweaked the result.
As I'm not a native speaker I would like to asked for some help, is somebody willing to put the finishing touches?

PhotoLine (up to version 13 PhotoLine 32 or PL32) is an image editing program of the German company Computerinsel, it is distributed as shareware, and was originally developed for the Atari Falcon 030.
The program runs on various versions of Windows (98 and newer) and Mac OS (Classic and OS X) on PPC and Intel Macs. A specialty is the processing and combination of raster and vector graphics. It also has features like picture gallery, poster and label printing, generation of bar codes, creating charts and offers basic layout capabilities (document mode: For example, multi-page, print-ready documents). On Windows Aspell can be integrated, on Mac OS X the native spell checker is used. PhotoLine already brings a wide range of filters and effects, but can be extended by Photoshop plugins and the ability to import PSP tubes.
PhotoLine is working with layer technique, adjustment layer and layer styles. 16-bit images can be loaded, created and stored. Raster images can be converted into vector graphics. Recurring tasks can be automated, web-export facilitates the choice of image format, GIF animations creation or generation of buttons for web pages along with HTML code. The manipulation of PDF files is also possible and Unicode is supported. In almost all filter dialogs it is possible to manipulate single color channels directly. Beside CMYK, RGB and grayscale also HIS and Lab are supported.
Since version 11 it is possible to create dynamic Flash and GIF animations. Version 12.5 allowed the creation of 3D objects. Version 13.5 runs on USB flash drives, supports multi-processor systems and supplies character and paragraph formats, new dialogues with retractable windows, and processing of RAW files. A major focus of Release 14 is working with digital photos, modules for Raw and HDR are integrated. New in version 15 was the support of 64-bit operating systems.
The program is being developed in close contact with users and can be downloaded for testing from the manufacturer's page. The complete installation requires approximately 20 MB on a PC, 40 MB on a Mac (due to Universal Binary) and is considered very stable.
Thanks in advance,
