[prMac.com] Ghent, Belgium - Blue Crowbar Software has released 64-bit versions of its Impression and Aperture2Twitter plug-ins for Aperture 3. Impression provides a flexible way of adding custom watermarks to photos in Aperture while Aperture2Twitter enables the user to quickly send photos to Twitter.
Even though Aperture 3 still allows the use of existing 32-bit plug-ins, this requires the user to restart the application in 32-bit mode before being able to load the plug-in. With the use of native 64-bit plug-ins, this restart is no longer needed and the photographer can use all time-saving new features of the latest Aperture release at full 64-bit speed.
Feature Highlights for Impression:
* Adds high-quality visual watermarks to your photos
* The original files are not altered and EXIF data is preserved
* Multiple photos can be watermarked with one click
* Existing images can be used as watermarks as well as text
* The watermarked photos can be imported into Aperture or exported to a folder
Feature Highlights for Aperture2Twitter:
* Sends a tweet with photo without leaving Aperture
* Photos are automatically sent to TwitPic or Mobypicture
* Keychain support for fast switching between multiple Twitter-accounts
* Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) or 10.6 (Snow Leopard)
* Aperture 2.1 or 3.0
Pricing and Availability:
Impression: 9.90 Euros per single-user license or 12.90 Euros for a family pack. Aperture2Twitter: 4.90 Euros per single-user license or 6.90 Euros for a family pack. Both upgrades are available immediately and are free for all existing customers. Free trial versions of the software can be downloaded from the Blue Crowbar website.
