JS8 releases ImageLobe
Developer JS8 has released the first edition of ImageLobe, an image modification application. The software allows users to quickly add a variety of Leopard's Quartz Composition effects to photos and illustrations, such as "City Lights," "Color Pencil," "Posterize" and "X-Ray." There are over 40 in total, and JS8 notes that as Apple and third-party developers release more effects for Leopard, these will automatically become available in ImageLobe.
To run the program, users simply drag fresh images into the software, and then drag the results out to save. The full version of the program requires Mac OS X 10.5 or later, and costs $20; the demo version is fully-functional however, except that image resolution is limited.
