In my opinion, its the most classic of the classics and it’s probably the most famous Image / Photo Editing application for Mac platform. This application is supposed to come installed in every single Mac computer (in my opinion) but for some reason Apple didn’t think to add this application to their platform. Microsoft is still delivering windows with Paint and most people need something that is a very friendly interface, easy to use and capable of atleast basic image / photo editing…and this is what GIMP is all about.
I have some very very good news for PowerPC users that love to take pictures and play around with them. Recently I got an e-mail from one of my readers asking me if I had some recommendations for HDR software. Well, to be honest I didn’t even know what HDR photos were, so I went to Google and “Browser, Browser, on the Mac, can’t you show me what the heck is HDR Imaging?” and this what my first stop before a second search – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High-dynamic-range_imaging . Now knowing what HDR was, it was time to dig up PowerPC compatibly and after some research I came out with this application that I’m looking forward to sharing with my readers!
HDRtist – 1.2.0 (Free) PowerPC friendly Tiger / Leopard / 10.4/10.5 – http://www.ohanaware.com/hdrtist/ – You guys can download it straight from this web-site, on the corner where it says “New Version:1.3.2” there is a drop-down and if you click it, you will see the PowerPC listed. This application is as simple as drag and drop with a streamlined interface, your photos will never be the same. The results are very professional. HDRtist Pro is also available, but I recommend that you contact the developers to make sure they are still providing the right license for your version.
A while ago I found this application and installed it on my PowerPC, and it worked great. So I decided to save the link in my bookmarks but because I have so many bookmarked pages, it takes me forever to find things! Many of you will know what I mean! Today I am pleased to finally share a great Photo and Image Editing program for Mac PowerPC.
* Image Tricks – http://belightsoft.com/products/products.php – It’s a very powerful photo image editing program, easy to use and a very friendly interface that makes it even easier to test the effects that are divided in 3 tabs: Filters/Quartz/Generators. You can drag and drop photos from iPhoto and save in formats like: PDF/TIFF/GIF/JPEG/PNG. If you are looking for something easy with fast results, without spending money and excess time to learn the application. Image Tricks will fit you like a glove, but also will enhance your photos/Images and make them appear more professional. If you decide to go PRO you will have even more options/features (of course).
