Version 3 of Acorn Image Editing Software Released, What do You Use?

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (OS X)" @ 04:00 AM

"Flying Meat introduced version 3 of its popular Acorn image editor today, adding a number of features, including layer styles, text and live multistop gradients, rotating text and shapes, quick mask, instant alpha channels, new filters, improvements to PSD importing as well as adding PSD exporting and more."

This seems to be a pretty popular program, and for the rest of this week it's available in the Mac App Store [affiliate link] for $29.95 USD (normally $49.95 USD). I need to do more with my photographs, but since I have little experience in adjusting or manipulating them, I'm not quite sure what the best program would be for me. What are your thoughts, something like this or do you think an Adobe product is better? What do you use?

Does Adobe Photoshop CS5 Extended Live Up to the Hype?

Posted by Darius Wey in "Apple Software (OS X)" @ 09:05 AM

Product Category: Advanced Digital Imaging Software
Manufacturer: Adobe
Where to Buy: Amazon [Affiliate]
Price: $994.99 (Outright); $343.99 (Upgrade); $192.98 (Student & Teacher Edition)
System Requirements: Intel-based Mac, 1 GB RAM, Mac OS X 10.5.7/10.6 or later
Specifications: External Link

Pros:

  • Huge improvements to image editing and selection via Content-Aware Fill and Edge Refinement;
  • Complete revamp of painting capabilities via Mixer Brush and Bristle Tips;
  • Advanced 3D capabilities with Repoussé;
  • 64-bit support and GPU acceleration.

Cons:

  • UI unification could use plenty of work;
  • Price still remains uncompetitively high.

Summary: When a product is recognized as a verb as much as it is a noun, then you know you have a well-known name in your hands. Photoshop is one of those products. Year after year, it is seen as the advanced digital imaging software to have, so just what could Adobe do to make this product bigger and better? Earlier in the year, the company released its latest version, CS5 and CS5 Extended, promising to be one of the biggest upgrades yet with a plethora of new features such as Content-Aware Fill, complete cross-platform 64-bit support, Repoussé, and significant painting enhancements. And all of that is merely scraping the surface. In this review, we look at CS5 Extended for the Mac, focusing on some of the general features new to CS5, as well as some of the features offered only in the Extended version. Read more...

Cat Lovers, This App Is For You

"Are your photographs suffering from a decided feline shortage? There's a cat for that."

Is your photo missing that feline touch? Now you have a solution. Add a cat in one of many poses and colors to any photo and send to your friends. Or you can check out Macworlds test images prior to purchase to see just what you can do with the app. What would improve this would be the ability to add images of your own cat to really personalize it. Anyway, the app costs $0.99 USD and is available now.
