BeLight Software has released
v2.0, a new version of their image generator that uses Mac OS X v10.4 “Tiger’s” Core Image technology to generate visual effects to digital images.
Image Tricks is used to generate backgrounds, Web design illustrations, print graphics and more using about 40 different Core Image-based effects and filters. Eleven different image generators are included in the free version — a $9.95 “Pro” version adds six additional image generators. About 30 masks can be applied to an image.
Once your image looks how you want it, Image Tricks can export the graphics to TIFF, JPEG, PDF, PNG and GIF image formats. It’s also capable of integrating with Apple’s iPhoto software, and is a Universal Binary for Intel and PowerPC-based Macs.
