Red Pill image editor goes final; features content fill

updated 05:20 pm EDT, Mon October 25, 2010

A dozen-plus Photoshop-like tools for under $25

Just three weeks after their fifth public beta, German software house Times For Fun have updated their photo image editor Red Pill to 1.0. The program features over a dozen Photoshop-like tools, including the clone stamp, magic wand and a "Smart Fill" similar to the "content-aware" fill offering in Photoshop CS5.

Among other features, Red Pill also offers unlimited undo, a new "fast mode" just added to the final release, transform and adjust filters, a file manager and batch processing. Also added to v1.0 are some additional settings in the Smart Fill dialog box.

Red Pill is available now for 17 (~ $24US), and includes a PDF user guide. It requires Mac OS X 10.5 or higher for PPC or Intel Macs. The program is sold as "nagware," meaning that after the 15th launch users will get dialog reminders to pay for and register the program. A watermark will appear on photos saved with the program until it is registered.

    I don't know if I'd call this a 1.0 release. The UI is... pretty bad. Hard to justify paying for this when Pixelmator is just about twice as much and is actually usable.
