iMaginator 2.0 ships

Stone Design today released , a free upgrade to its powerful image processing application. iMaginator provides an intuitive and easy-to-use interface for Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger's Core Image technology, giving both home users and graphics professionals instant access to over 108 effects, transitions, and filters. iMaginator allows users to layer images, paint and text, and apply, modify, and re-order multiple effects to "achieve subtle enhancements or astounding artistic results from any photo or image."

Version 2.0 is twice as fast as the previous version by using OpenGL and CoreImage directly. Paint can be applied on any number of layers with any size square or round brush. In addition, it can erase the image or blend with the background image in 20 different ways. iMaginator 2.0 also features several new effects chains in its Library, including the winners of the iMaginator Contest. For greater precision, the crop rectangle also can be set exactly and moved by holding down the option key.

iMaginator features basic photo-editing functions such as crop, scale, rotate, flip, skew, change exposure and brighten images and can export to either TIFF or JPEG files as well as create QuickTime movies showing the effects changing over time.

A 14-day trial of the $50 application is available online.
