Crescendo Software has updated PicturePlay to version 1.1.
Made with the REALbasic development environment, PicturePlay is basically an electronic collage. You can use it to incorporate multiple photos or pictures into a single artistic image.
Version 1.1 has a new toolbar for commonly used functions; a new reset and tile functions for positioning of windows and palettes; undoing of layer tools and repositioning and resizing; cutting, copying, pasting, and clearing menu items implemented; new clipboard window; a new tile function that can tile a layer across or downwards; and a new trimming window to allow the removal of unwanted sections of layers.
It also has lots of optimizations to stop unnecessary drawing and subsequent waiting, a fully independent multi-layered work space, beefed up support for image file formats, and transparency as well as many image manipulation routines, according to the folks at Crescendo.
The Mac OS X exclusive application can be downloaded (it’s an 850k file) from the Crescendo Web site. The purchase price is US$10 for a single user license.
