Electric Butterfly has released Stimulus 4.5
(http://www.ebutterfly.com/stimulus/), an update of the media browser
that provides an easy way to manage your personal collection of
digital music, photos, and video clips on Mac OS X. The upgrade
sports a new Image Effects editor and more.

Stimulus works like a file browser, allowing you to select and
view/play all of your favorite images, audio files, and video clips
from where they reside on your hard drive. You can rename, move, and
delete files to organize your digital life. Play slideshows, add
favorites to custom lists, adjust audio bass & treble settings,
search, print, zoom, rotate, convert/save images, add image effects,
and more.

The new Image Effects editor in Stimulus 4.5 lets you enhance your
images with 12 effects such as Blur, Sharpen, Brightness, Contrast,
Color Levels, and more. Image editing is never done to the original
file, so all editing and export saves are non-destructive. Images can
now be exported in various file formats such as JPEG, PNG, PICT, and
TIFF. Stimulus 4.5 also sports several refined user interface
elements, plus dozens of minor bug fixes and improvements.

For a limited time, you can purchase a single user license for
US$9.95 — 50 percent off the regular price of $19.95. Stimulus 4.5
is a free update for all registered Stimulus customers.
