Rainbow Painter 3
Norbyte has released an update to its image editing software for the Mac and PC, Rainbow Painter 3. Designed for both amateurs and professionals, the application allows users to retouch photos, paint and draw. Features in the update adds support for 32-bit float/channel HDR that enables adjustments to be made without loosing quality as well as new pattern editing mode. In addition, the company says that switching on the horizontal and vertical repeat function will still support all effects, and brush strokes will continue over the edges when drawing.
The new pattern editing mode makes it possible to view and edit textures and patterns in a what-you-see-is-what-you-get style. Other features add a range of tools from pen and eraser to oil and airbrush, and include brightness, motion blur, and splash effects.
Rainbow Painter 3 is compatible with Mac OS X 10.4 or higher, and available for download from the company's website for $30.
