DouWere, s.p.r.l. has introduced Stapled 1.0, the first public version of an original utility for Mac OS X. It lets anyone you share their artistic creations.
Any plain document can be morphed into a picture document, and, consequently, handled and stored as an image file can be. The original document has been “stapled” with the picture. Wherever you put this picture, you also put the original document.
You can open any document with the application, and it creates a new document — literally a picture — rendering a preview of the original document. However, it also embeds the original document, at its full quality.
When you re-open a picture created by Stapled (or a copy of it) into the application, it will re-create the original document. The original document has been “unstapled” from the picture.
Stapled requires OS X 10.7 or later. It’s worldwide through the Mac App Store in the Utilities category. It’s free. However, you can unlock the app manual renaming of the generated files (they are, by default, only named “Stapled DEMO”) with a registration fee. Go to http://www.douwere.com/ for more info.
