WebCollage

Send Article to a Friend

WebCollage -- Last week - and before we'd reported on version 1.0 - StarNine released WebCollage 1.01, a new version that supports 68K Macs and corrects several bugs. The software enables webmasters to place "dynamic graphics" on Web pages. A dynamic graphic is an ordinary GIF or JPEG that includes one or more updating elements such as data from a Web page or the result from searching a database. Using a user-defined schedule, WebCollage updates images and uploads them to a Web server. For instance, StarNine has worked with Nasdaq to make a graphic template for creating dynamic graphics that display updating stock prices. WebCollage comes with extensive scripting support and is especially worth a look if placing CGIs on your Web server is difficult. Currently priced at $199, WebCollage minimally requires a 68020-based Mac, System 7.1, 2.5 MB RAM, and QuickTime. A 30-day evaluation copy is available as a 2.6 MB download from the StarNine Web site. StarNine Technologies -- 800/525 - 2580 -- 510/649-4949 -- 510/548-0393 (fax) -- <info@starnine.com> [TJE]
