Econ Technologies is now shipping Portraits & Prints, its US$19.95 “personal photo studio for Mac OS X.” A free demo is available at the
company’s Web site.
Portraits & Prints is a photo printing solution that stores image enhancements for use at any time without ever touching the original image. It works with Mac OS X’s Image Capture to automatically download pictures from digital cameras and open them in Portraits and Prints.
The company also said that if you buy Portraits & Prints anytime this month you’ll get the Portraits & Prints Template Maker free — cost of the Template Maker is normally $9.95. With the Portraits & Prints Template Maker, you can create an unlimited number of templates by placing photos, adding graphics and typing text, according to Joseph Japes of Econ. You can print out themed photos, greeting cards, scrapbook pages and more.
Portraits & Prints is a native Cocoa Mac OS X application designed to take advantage of Mac OS X system features, Japes said. The only requirements for Portraits & Prints is Mac OS X or later and a color printer.
