Monochrome 2.0.1 update improves efficiency, speed

Einstein's Legacy has announced the release of an update of its image batch conversion software, Monochrome v2.0.1. The application offers users the ability to convert batches of color images to grayscale, providing control over the conversion process and applied effects, creating a consistent-looking set of output images. Its latest version features faster GPU-based image rendering, additional conversion methods, 30 new image effects, and new options for previewing, printing and sharing images.



Users of Monochrome v2.0.1 now have the option to convert images using an RGB of HSL-based color mixer, simple or advanced color desaturation, or monotone color re-mapping. New rendering effects include edge burning, X-ray simulation, motion blurring and pixelation. Monochrome operations have been consolidated into a single window, simplifying the image manipulation process. Requiring OS X 10.8.5 or higher, Monochrome 2.0.1 is priced at $20 from the App Store.

Evernote for iOS updated, adds improved business card scanning

Productivity app Evernote has released an update for its iOS version, with major improvements exclusive to Premium subscribers. Originally introduced last year, Evernote's business card scanning feature now offers automatic saving of a copy of the business card to the Contacts database stored on one's device. Additionally improved is the way the app organizes name and phone numbers captured from business cards, and if Evernote detects a contact as also having an account on LinkedIn, the option to send a LinkedIn invite will be prompted.

The Presentation Mode features the option to show notes in a full-screen environment, and the update now allows for seeing and playing back multimedia content. In addition, links can be opened from within notes while in Presentation Mode. Evernote for iOS is free to download on the iTunes Store, with Premium subscriptions priced at $5 per month.
