Picture Play, an application for creating compositions of several images, has been updated to version 1.2.
The Mac OS only product, made with REALbasic, is basically an electronic collage, according to Chris Carruthers of Crescendo Software. You can use it to incorporate multiple images into a single artistic image, and add text labels as well.
The update offers a new proportional resizing and resizing window for pixel or percentage changes. There are new work area width and height dimensions and scroll bars to navigate. An “Add Text…” button has been added for insertion of styled text. Picture Play 1.2 has a new rotation tool for high quality layer rotation and can now export individual layers. According to Carruthers, the update also adds smarter window positioning and memory of palette locations and a new cycle windows menu item to quickly switch between documents. There are also other enhancements and bug fixes.
Picture Play 1.2 is available for Mac OS X, as well as Mac OS 8.0 through 9.2.1. You can download it from the
Crescendo Web site. The cost is US$10 for a single user license.
