Stone Design Announces iMaginator
for Mac OS X 10.4 (TIGER)

Image Processing made cheap and easy!
April 19, 2005 – Albuquerque, New Mexico – Stone Design, the original Mac OS X software house with over 19 years of experience, today announced it will ship a powerful new image processing application named “iMaginator” on April 29th, concurrent with Apple's release of Mac OS X 10.4 (aka Tiger). According to the Oxford English Dictionary, iMaginator means “One who imagines”.

Unleashes the Tiger!

iMaginator provides over 106 effects, transitions and filters to let you alter images in real time, providing an intuitive and easy to use interface for Mac OS X 10.4's Core Image technology. Layer images and text and apply any number of effects to achieve astounding artistic results. You can instantly save processed images to TIFF, JPEG or create QuickTime movies.

According to Stone Design CEO Andrew Stone, “iMaginator must be seen to be believed! When Tiger ships, just download it and you’ll see that this application truly unleashes the Tiger. Users of Stone Studio and Create will recognize the easy to use features such as the Effects/Images library and the Image Drag Well for instant saving of images and chains of effects for later reuse.”

Incorporates Latest Technologies

iMaginator is a Core Image “Image Unit” harness, and automatically loads and displays any custom image processing plug-ins you add. It comes packaged with 100 Tiger Image Units, and seven new custom plugins from Stone Design, including Crop Fade Mask, Oval Mask, Make Transparent, Colorize, Grayscale and Polka Dots. iMaginator provides interfaces for modifying the plugins which include blurs, color adjustments, distortions, styles, compositing effects, edge sharpeners and transitions. With a 200 page searchable manual covering all aspects of the program, you'll be creating masterpieces in minutes.

iMaginator incorporates SpotLight technology for instant searching and is applescriptable. iMaginator is a
LinkBack server which means you can copy the resulting image and paste into a LinkBack client server, such as Stone Design’s flagship page layout and web authoring application, Create®. Then, when you want to edit the image, you simply double-click it in Create® to modify the image again in iMaginator. When you save your edits, your changes show up immediately in Create®.

Inexpensive and Shipping April 29th!

Software architect Andrew Stone continues, “We have worked very hard to provide you with a complete and stable product at the same moment that Mac OS X 10.4 becomes available. You will be able to download and try iMaginator at full strength for two weeks free, and you’ll be amazed at what you can do. At only $49, with Free Upgrades For Life, it’s a must-have piece of software!” Don't get caught in the rush, order your copy right now!
