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.
