Shortcut, a Netherlands-based company, has brought its S-Spline product to the Mac. It allows you to enlarge pictures, images, and more with little or no quality loss.
“So far we have been selling it well in the PC channels, but now it is available for our favorite computer, the Mac,” Han Droogsma of Shortcut told MacCentral.
S-Spline offers a patented S-Spline enlarging algorithm, for previewing as well as saving. The application also features a scalable preview window. The program supports the most common image file formats including JPEG-JFIF (*.jpg, *.jpeg, *.jfif. *.jif), Windows or OS/2 bitmap (*.bmp, *.dib), Zsoft Paintbrush (*.pcx), TIFF (*.tif, *.tiff), and PCT (*.pct).
S-Spline for the Mac costs US$61. A demo version is available for download at the Shortcut Web site. The demo is fully functional, with exception of the save functionality. Currently, the product is only available for the traditional Mac operating system. A Mac OS X version is in the works.
