Stone Design today announced availability of iMaginator 2.2, a free upgrade of its image processing and painting application. “iMaginator provides an intuitive and easy to use interface for Mac OS X 10.4’s Core Image technology, giving both home users and graphics professionals instant access to over 108 effects, transitions, and filters,” notes the release. “With iMaginator, users can layer images, paint and text, and apply, modify, and re-order multiple effects to achieve subtle enhancements or astounding artistic results from any photo or image. Crop, scale, rotate, flip, skew, change exposure and brighten images in real time, and then save processed images as industry-standard TIFF or JPEG files, and even create QuickTime movies showing the effects changing over time.” iMaginator is priced at US$49.
