[prMac.com] Sydney, Australia - Acqualia today announced the release of Picturesque 2.1, a major update to their Apple Design Award winning image beautifying application. Picturesque makes images look gorgeous for the web, adding "Web 2.0" style effects. With an animated "drag and drop" style interface, Picturesque beautifies your image with tasteful effects like 3D perspective, reflection, glow, shadow, curve, and stroke in less time than it takes to open Photoshop. And with just a couple of sliders, Picturesque can help you achieve professional image effects.
Picturesque can also beautify images in batch mode, and with the ability to resize, crop, and apply effects on a whole folder of images, Picturesque is an easy way to make sophisticated thumbnails and beautifully refined full sized images.
You can also create presets of your favourite effects and save them to use again later, allowing you to create a consistent look for the images on your website with minimal effort.
Version 2.1 brings a number of enhancements to Picturesque including an improved image browser view, improved cropping & image resizing, and the ability to save straight to your Desktop with one keystroke. It also fixes a number of bugs relating to stroke, the shadow effect and saving.
Pricing and Availability:
Picturesque is available now for a free download and requires 10.5 Leopard or later. Registration is $34.95 (USD) to remove the watermark.
