Image / Photo Editing PowerPC

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.

GIMP 2.8.4 (Free) – PowerPC friendly – Tiger 10.4.11 / Leopard 10.5.7+.  (They provide support for those Intel felines as well. http://gimp.lisanet.de/Website/News/News.html

All Mac PowerPC users are well aware that when it comes to Social Networking our applications are limited.  It’s hard to find something that might work well for Mac OS X Tiger.  In fact it’s virtually possible to find options for  the Mac OS X Leopard.  I actually still prefer use a good old fashioned Browser, when it comes to searching for these types of media.  But this post doesn’t end here, previously we mentioned some applications for Twitter and we got really great feedback from our readers and I wanted to share some  more options with you here.  the list starts with:

Spending All Your Money – Now Tracking All Your Money

Everybody knows that even small expenditures add up…  In my opinion, tracking your money and your expenses are fundamental to the health of your pocket.  PowerPC computers are a great tool to help you in tracking because they run some of the web’s best applications that have been specially designed to help you in your quest.  Check back to some of our previous posts here on Mac PowerPC and you will find quite few of them in our archive.  But today I wanted to share the following with you;

* Budget Workbook – 1.7.5 (Shareware) – PowerPC friendly – Panther / Tiger / Leopard – 10.3/10.4/10.5. http://www.snowmintcs.com/products/workbookmac/  It’s a simple expense tracker, easy to use with a very friendly interface that will easily help you to find where your money is going.

Bento for Mac PowerPC

I believe most Mac users are very organized when it comes to their data, music, movies, office, set-up, etc, etc.  So to find an application that helps you to organize your database is very important.  For example, iTunes is great piece of work that puts all your music on track.  Anyways, this post is not about music, it’s about Bento for Mac.  This software is unbelievably easy to use as it organizes all of your important information in one place.  You can manage and sync your contacts, address book, iCal, iPhoto, To Do Items into your project as easy as drag and drop.  The latest version 4 is for Intel only, but after doing some research and installing old versions I found out that 3.0.6 is fully compatible with PowerPC 10.5.  Bento is not free, so before you guys purchase please contact FileMaker and make sure they are still providing the right license for your version.

Bento 3.0.6 (PowerPC – Leopard 10.5) – http://www.filemaker.com/products/bento/

They’re Only Browser But I Like Them

The Next 2 posts will be about Browsers as we still have to cover some browsers that might not be the most updated, but certainly still work on some PowerPC machines.  Add the following to your list:

Demeter 1.5 – Free – PowerPC 10.4/10.5 – Tiger/Leopard –  This Browser is based on Shiira – http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/25489/demeter (Stable version 1.0.9).  On http://mac.softpedia.com says that is Jaguar supported…if there are any Jaguar users reading this, can you help us remove the doubt??  Thanks.

Radon 1.5 – Free – PowerPC 10.5 / Leopard – http://download.cnet.com/Radon-Browser/3000-2356_4-179888.html

iCab 5.0.1 – Shareware – PowerPC 10.5/Leopard – http://www.icab.de/index.html – iCab is an alternative web browser for the Apple Macintosh with numerous useful features. On the web site it says it is Intel but it does work on PowerPC.

iCab was very good playing Youtube’s video.

Next post is about Roccat.

iConvertX Audio/Video PowerPC

It’s always important to have access to a good application that easily converts your video and audio.  iConvertX not only completes the conversion quickly, but anyone can figure how how to work it.  It’s as easy as drag and drop…so even your grandmother could figure out how to work it!

iConvertX 4.0.1 (Shareware $3.75) (First 5 times are free to try) http://joris-vervuurt.com/page4/page4.php  – PowerPC friendly, runs on 10.5 / 10.4 / 10.3 – Leopard / Tiger / Panther.

P.S.:  It seems Joris Vervuurt also developed iTubex, an application that allows you to download videos from Youtube.  As far as I can see, version 8.0 will work on PowerPC running 10.5, but unfortunately I didn’t find a safe source to download the application, to do my tests.  If you guys would like to share the results or links, please feel free to drop us a line to let us know how it worked for you!

List of format that will convert:

.mp4 / .flv / .3gp / .pct / .m4v / .avi / .dv / .mov / .flc / .qtl / .wav / .aiff / .au / .moov / .mp3 / .swa / .m1a / .mp2 / .mpa / .mpeg / .mpg / .m1s / .mpm / .divx / .mkv / .gvi / .vp6 / .vfw

 

MacSome: Audio Recorder / iTunes Converter

One of our latest post was about tunelyrics and I thought this application would be a good choice to mention as another option for iTunes lovers.

Macsome iTunes Music Converter 1.5.6  (The right version for PowerPC is 1.3.1 and can be download here http://download.cnet.com/Macsome-iTunes-Converter/3000-18549_4-11126093.html )(Demo – $39.95) converts any M4a to MP3, and even works with DRM, by converting protected music and various audio files into unprotected MP3, etc.

http://macsome.com/itunes-converter-mac/index.html 

One more application from MacSome that works very well on PowerPC is the Macsome Audio Recorder 1.1.0 (Shareware – $29.95) 10.4 / 10.5 (Tiger / Leopard). It’s a very powerful audio recorder that works with applications like iTunes, Skype or DVD Player.  It also records from microphones, etc.  It’s a very helpful application to have installed on your Mac.  http://www.macsome.com/audio-recorder-mac/index.html

MultiTunes Multiples iTunes Library for Mac PowerPC

Browsing the web this morning, I came across a great application that it gives extra features to iTunes.  MultiTunes is a plug-in that allows you to have multiples iTunes libraries.  If you are an iTunes user, you know what I mean and you probably wonder how to have 2 iTunes installed in the same computer… Anyways if you feel like trying this app it’s shareware and works with iTunes 6 or later.

MultiTunes 1.6 (ShareWare – 15.99) 10.3 (Panther), 10.4 (Tiger) and 10.5 (Leopard)  PowerPC – http://porkrind.org/multitunes/

Also there is a cheaper version that helps you to create multiple iTunes libraries and manage them.  This app supports iTunes 4 of later

*Libra 2.1.9 (ShareWare – 10.00) 10.2 (Jaguar), 10.3 (Panther), 10.4 (Tiger) and 10.5 (Leopard)  PowerPC – http://www.sillybit.com/libra/  It’s very rare to see apps available for Jaguar.  Anyone that has partitions with Jaguar and Panther sitting on the side, it’s time to boot the feline one more time.

We from Mac PowerPC are always looking for the cheapest ways to do things and we want to let you know that there is one way to have multiple iTunes libraries in the same computer, but it won’t be as practical as Mac users like things to be.  The only thing you have to do is “hold Option key” and click on iTunes icon, a window will pop up asking if you want to create a new Library or choose one, that’s it!  It’s simple but you will have to get used to pressing the Option key each time you want to change your iTunes library.

100,000 Hits for Mac PowerPC

Mac PowerPC is a simple project that serves to mention applications that are still available for PowerPCs.  We are very happy to archive over 100,000 hits after over 1 year!  Our only intention here is to make sure that the owners of G3/G4/G5 Macs are still able to run their machines with up to date applications (and sometimes not so up to date applications!)

We will stay around for as long as my iMac still wakes up and we would appreciate any and all donations to help us in covering the expenses we incur in keeping our blog online.  If you guys also can check out the advertisements we really appreciate it because that helps too!

Thank you all and stay tuned because I’ve been busy doing research and have got great and exciting apps to share with you.  I strive to post 3 times per week…

Until next time!
