It has been a while since our last release of MaxLab, but that’s not to say that we haven’t been working hard behind the scenes improving and developing new features. We have an array of new features and improvements to help you with your workflow.
Here are some of the new features.
PNG and tiff image support.
We have added in the ability to print other image types. We have showcased this on other blogs but it has now been released into MaxLab. With more photographers using either background removal or green screen images we needed to add the ability to print from different image types. We now support printing from either TIFF or PNG images.

As you can see, being able to print from PNG images gives you the ability to produce some amazing print or digital products. The above sports magazine front covers are all produced in MaxLab, using data captured at the photography stage makes for a bespoke and for fast automated production.
This is the same job in MaxLab, as the raw images before MaxLab does its magic. You can see on the right hand side the data that was captured at the photography stage
Got Photo QR code integration.
Our Gotphoto integration has been improved to allow pre-shoot cards to include the gotphoto URL, enabling parents to go directly to their photos, regardless of the method of data capture you are using.
In addition you can also upload your Star composites directly to each “star” child’s account from MaxLab. This is a game-changer in composites; allowing you to make full use of the automation achieved by a data-driven workflow, while selling online via Gotphoto. This will work with any multi image product including duals/memory mates.
Alongside the QR import we have now added the flexibility to import using the user comments field or Canon Copyright field in the EXIF data of an image. Either from our data capture system, ID merge or any data capture that embeds into these fields, MaxLab can link the data giving you the flexibility to use whatever system of data capture you like and still be able to import and link the data in MaxLab.
What puts Halsys above other companies is our ability to listen to our customers. We have a long list of improvements that have been made to MaxLab and a large number have been driven by feedback from actual users of MaxLab. Some of the improvements will look trivial but it’s all about speed of use and making the repetitive actions automated.
Exif and QR Import – We have made various improvements to the import screen
Exif import unassign subject code groupings
Unassigning subject codes move to the no group header
Implemented unassign exif subject codes for multiple selection.

QR and EXIF import – implemented unassigning multiple subject codes at a time, and unassigning with hotkey.
Allow the use of the enter/esc keys when using the EXIF import modals, for speed of use.
Added option to only group images that have exif data in the exif import for better visabilty
