The folks at Stone Design say Stone Studio — seven applications built to support Mac OS X — is now available. The suite features Create and PhotoToWeb. Stone Design CEO Andrew Stone said the applications come with free licenses valid through May 15.
The suite includes applications to do graphic design with page layout and Web publishing features, manage digital photos, track time and bill clients, and produce PDF. The following applications are included:
Create for X, a multipage draw and layout program;
PhotoToWeb 1.0, a new product (more on this in a moment);
Slice & Dice 2.1.1, a tool for creating navigation bars, image maps, and mosaic tilings from any image;
PStill 1.4, which converts EPS/PS and other conforming PostScript to the Portable Document Format (PDF);
Pack Up & Go 1.2, for file compression and archive creation;
TimeCard 1.0.3, which tracks time spent for clients, and produces invoices automatically;
GIFfun 2.1, for Web animation creation.
“These last few months have allowed us to really polish our applications with the Aqua look and feel,” Stone said in a press announcement. “We’ve lowered our prices and our applications are freely accessible to Mac OS X early adopters. Download them today and give them a trial.”
All the applications come with fully searchable online help documents. If you like them, you can buy them online at
the Stone Store
at a special introductory price of US$299 through May 31. Stone said the suite contains over $1,200 worth of software.
