Picture Play, an application from Crescendo Software, for creating compositions of several images, has been updated to version 1.5.1.
The update has a new low quality setting for Rotate Tool that doesn’t anti-alias a rotated image, and, as such, avoids unnecessary blurring, according to Chris Carruthers of Crescendo. Non-72 dpi images now work with Picture Play, allowing higher quality images to be used, he added. The tool bar has been removed to save screen space, and the Blur tool rewritten to more accurately blur without pixilation. There are other enhancements, as well.
Picture Play 1.5.1, developed with the REALbasic environment from Real Software, is basically an electronic collage. You can use it to incorporate multiple images into a single artistic image and add editable text layers as well. It’s available in Carbon form for Mac OS 8.5 and later, including Mac OS X.
You can download Picture Play (a 950k file) at the Crescendo Web site. Registration is US $14.95 for a single user license.
