Yarra Valley Software has released
iMagine, a US$50 image processing tool for Mac OS X that lets you automate workflow for 2D graphics and the processing of digital image files.
iMagine is a 2D graphics engine implemented as an application. It functions as a graphics server and image processor for AppleScript. It extends the capabilities of Apple’s scripting environment by offering a variety of drawing, image importing, exporting, manipulating and processing commands. The drawing commands make use of Apple’s Quartz and QuickDraw graphics technologies; the image drawing commands take advantage of QuickTime.
A library of AppleScript Droplets and applications is included with iMagine. The droplets perform a number of actions, from setting the copyright and author exif info of an image file to rotating, scaling, cropping or adding borders. To perform such tasks you drop files or folders containing images onto the AppleScript droplet.
The individual components of the supplied scripts are included with iMagine. Need to write your own solutions? The components can be used to speed up the development of your own AppleScript workflow automation solutions, according to the gang at Yarra Valley Software.
