Stone Studio Web Resources Available
Albuquerque, November 6, 2001 - Stone Design today announced the online availibility of several new resources for Stone Studio™ for Mac OS X. Stone Studio consists of seven applications designed from the ground up to take advantage of Mac OS X.
According to Stone Design CEO Andrew Stone, "In response to user requests, we've created an automated Demo License server, a FAQ center for frequently asked questions, and online Tutorials. We hope to continually add content to these resources which augment the online searchable Help in Stone Studio."
The Demo License server immediately provides people a set of licenses so they can try the Stone Studio at full strength without any limitations for a trial period. To permanently license your apps, visit the Stone Store.
CEO Stone notes "Because we're small and responsive, we work with users to provide the best possible software. And because we're a Mac OS X only shop, we are working to take maximum advantage of Mac OS X and Aqua features to provide the best possible user experience. This is something that cannot be offered by cross platform vendors, who adhere to the lowest common denominator of something that will also run on Windows."
Stone Studio™, which recently received a "Freakin' Awesome" rating from MacAddict Magazine, includes applications to do graphic design with page layout and web publishing features, manage digital photos, track time and bill clients, and produce PDF from PostScript files. Stone Studio consists of Create®, PhotoToWeb®,PStill, GIFfun, SliceAndDice, PackUp&Go and TimeEqualsMoney.
CEO Stone notes, "The true power of OS X shows when you use the apps together. Drag SliceAndDice and GIFfun documents into Create to make dynamic web pages. Use Create to make background patterns for PhotoToWeb pages. Install PStill and then drag EPS files directly in Create. Generate your website in Create or PhotoToWeb and drag the resulting folder into PackUpAndGo to make an archive that can be easily transferred to a web server. It's all seamless."
Stone Studio™ is available online at the Stone Store. Stone Design has extended its low introductory pricing: $299 through December 24, 2001. Each application can also be purchased separately at the Stone Design Store.
