Chronos has released SOHO Labels 6, a major update to its label-creation app, just in time for your holiday card mailing efforts. The new release adds support for browsing and searching the libraries of both iPhoto and Aperture, as well as the capability to add Finder folders of images directly to the app’s built-in photo browser. SOHO Labels 6 can also organize labels in multiple layers, and allows for the addition of effects, such as reflections, to any graphic, shape, or text box. Finally, SOHO Labels is now compatible with Mac OS X 10.7 Lion’s full-screen mode, and can handle over 1,000 new label formats. ($39.99 new, $25 upgrade, release notes)
