Hemera Technologies Inc. has announced the forthcoming release of
The Big Box of Art for Macintosh, which it bills as a “refreshingly different” collection of royalty-free digital images. It’s expected to hit store shelves in North America and Britain by mid-month; France and Germany will follow in late October. The collection is aimed at home graphics enthusiasts.
The Big Box of Art incorporates Hemera’s own “Photo-Objects,” clip art, illustrations, professional stock photos, Web graphics and more. Hemera’s Photo-Objects are photographic images of objects without their surrounding photo. The Big Box of Art incorporates a search engine that enables users to find images quickly and easily, according to the developer. PhotoFont Maker is also included — it’s an application that allows users to fill in fonts with photorealistic textures. The Big Box of Art for Macintosh includes a 750-page image catalog, as well.
The collection includes 10,000 Photo-Objects, 110,000 vector clip art images, 10,000 raster illustrations, 20,000 color photos, 10,000 black and white photos, 26,000 Web graphics, 25,000 Web images, 2,000 textured photos, 1,500 animations and 500 PhotoFont textures.
The Big Box of Art for Macintosh carries an estimated street price of US$69.95. Minimum system requirements call for a 233MHz PowerPC G3, 64MB RAM, Mac OS 8.6, 400MB hard drive space, 256 color display, CD-ROM drive.
