BeLight Software today announced the release of Image Tricks 1.1, the latest version of its free image editor. The utility allows users to apply the special effects earlier available only in advanced image editors without an intense learning curve. Image Tricks is based on Apple Core Image filters and includes about 35 Image Units (blur, distortion, stylize filters, tile effects, and more). Image Tricks is also available as a plugin for the updated versions of BeLight Software programs. Changes in this release include: support for LinkBack technology, a new option to apply one of 30 unique masks to an image, new Core Image filters, improvements to integration with other BeLight Software programs, and more.
