[prMac.com] Today, CodingMammoth released QuickScale. QuickScale is an application built for Mac OS X to scale images. There are a lot of options available, ranging from scaling methods to custom names.
One of the new features is the possibility to scale using the CoreImage technology of Mac OS X, which results in dramatically better image quality. Droplets are little applications with just one purpose: scaling images with the settings when you created the droplet; drop your images on the droplet and the images will be scaled using the settings saved in the droplet.
Another new feature lets you specify the custom name of saved images with the use of predefined tokens like date, index numbers and sizes. It's also possible to add a watermark to your images, both text and images are supported.
QuickScale embraces the latest technology; QuickLook is used to show quick previews of the imported images and CoreImage can be used as export-engine for better scaling results, but for those still running Tiger, a Tiger version is also available.
Pricing and Availability:
QuickScale is shareware and costs only $15. Once you get the pro version, any updates will be free. Buy once and update forever.
CodingMammoth is a little company, started in May 2008 in Belgium. The main developer, Jelle De Laender is currently student at the University of Ghent who wrote QuickScale in his spare time.
