BannerZest Flash

Aquafadas has released BannerZest 1.0, a new Flash presentation application for Mac OS X. The tool allows creators to turn images into a gallery, a navigation banner, or a slideshow in a series of steps. BannerZest ships as both a standard edition and a pro version. The pro edition adds advanced publishing options, workflow enhancements, and specific Pro templates. The tool integrates with popular javascript media viewer applications that let the user visualize high resolution versions of each of the banner images.

Aquafadas says "Flash-based animations require zero understanding of Flash and in fact, users don't even need to own Flash. Everything has been pre-integrated into the BannerZest application."

Uploading content via FTP or to a .Mac account is supported from within the BannerZest application. To integrate a banner on a page, users paste a code snippet that BannerZest automatically generates.

The tool requires Mac OS X Version 10.4.11 Tiger or later, is a Universal Binary for PowerPC and Intel and needs Flash Player version 9.0.45 or above.

A single user license for BannerZest Pro is priced at $130. Standard is priced $50.

    The generated flash banners link back to the developers site, even on the 'Pro' version. Careful with your money.
