DealBITS Drawing: BeLight Software's Image Tricks

Send Article to a Friend

Speaking as someone who finds Adobe Photoshop rather inscrutable while at the same time wishing I could perform some of the graphical manipulations it makes possible, I'm a total sucker for programs like BeLight Software's Image Tricks. Put simply, Image Tricks uses Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger's Core Image filters to enable you to apply a wide variety of neat effects to your own photos and graphics. The filters fall into a number of categories: color, focus, distortion, styling, halftone, tiling, illumination, and overlaps, along with a dizzying array of masks. New in the recently released Image Tricks 2.0 was the addition of "generators" for creating mathematically generated patterns (which I like, though I prefer patterns in my screensavers). With 2.0, BeLight also made the distinction between the free version (which does plenty for most people) and a pro version that adds more generators and filters. Now we're up to 2.2, which adds even more filters and generators.

In this week's DealBITS drawing, you can enter to win one of six copies of Image Tricks, each worth $9.95. All information gathered is covered by our comprehensive privacy policy. Be careful with your spam filters, since you must be able to receive email from my address to learn if you've won - one person whose name was chosen as a winner in the last DealBITS drawing didn't receive her prize because my email messages to her bounced repeatedly. Remember too, that if someone you refer to this drawing wins, you'll receive the same prize as a reward for spreading the word.
