Photo Options themes
Divine Fiat today released Photo Options, its latest theme for Apple's Keynote presentation software designed for professional and amateur photographers. Photo Options consists of two themes entitled "Darkroom" and "Light Box," along with Photo Icons as related extras. "Photo Options is about versatility for the user. All of the photo cutouts for both themes were created using David Astling's amazing command line utility, svg2key, so the look and feel of the themes can be altered without losing the photo cutouts. Simply change the attributes of the cutout layer in the master slide." Darkroom and Light Box are each available for $20, while the Photo Options theme set which includes both themes is available for $50.
Each theme features an extras file of 11 different background images in seven varying colors, and the themes are made up of 76 different text/photo layouts. Photo cutouts come in four different aspect ratios which consist of Portrait, Square, Landscape, and Panorama.
Photo Icons, which complete the set, are designed specifically for use with the Photo Options theme set, and each icon includes a palette of colors as well as textures that are pulled directly from the icon.
Custom icon primitives
The set also includes primitives of each custom icon which are fully editable Keynote objects. Users can change the fill as well as the stroke like any shape in Keynote, or use the "mask with shape" feature to mask a photo with a photo object.
