SimpleImage 5 released
Developer Chris Wood has released SimpleImage 5, a large update to his image and movie viewing application. Wood says that SimpleImage is completely rewritten in Cocoa - Mac OS X's default application type - from the ground up. The new version has full support for Leopard, and over a dozen new features. Users can perform live searches of their media, as well as save media in web-appropriate formats. The software can also generate print previews, as well as movie contact sheets. Wood is offering a Christmas discount on SimpleImage 5 until December 25th, selling the software for $20.
SimpleImage allows users to organize images and movies, remembering up to the last 250 files that were opened with the exact preview information that they were last viewed with, such as size, position, movie time and more. The app can also create snapshots of groups of windows, and can run slideshows that use Apple's Core Image technology for its transition effects.
