There’s a maintenance release for Portraits & Prints, the personal photo studio for Mac OS X, available from Econ Technologies.
Portraits & Prints 1.0.1 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.
As a special introductory offer, if you buy Portraits & Prints anytime this month for US$19.95 you’ll get the Portraits & Prints Template Maker, which will cost $9.95 when it’s released at the end of the month, for free. 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. A demo version is available at the Econ Web site.
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.
