Internet News   Internet News : IOSPIRIT released a great product for MacOS X
   posted by elwood on 8-Apr-2005 12:54:12 (2377 reads)
IOSPIRIT GmbH has released its new and universal digital image management solution, Picture Arena for MacOS® X on the 30th of March. Of special interest to AMIGA® users, that also own a Mac®, is the broad support for IFF-formats. Included is support for e.g. IFF-ILBM, IFF-RGB8 and IFF-YUVN.
What exactly is Picture Arena?



Picture Arena is the new center of your imaging world. Browse your directories, rework your photos on the fly, manage them in albums, reuse your existing iPhoto(TM) albums, make a speech-driven presentation, work independent of any network and put your digital treasures to use in many new ways. Full of innovations and super fast, Picture Arena lets you create stunning web galleries with eCards and interactive databases without any expert knowledge and just a few clicks, burns up to 9200 pictures on a single CD for convenient viewing on a DVD player, prints contact sheets, letter paper, greeting cards and much more. Taking full advantage of the advanced processor power of the Mac®, you can combine more than 20 amazing effects and operations to dive your photos into vibrant colors, correct skew horizons, add fun effects or create a picture mosaic with your photos being rebuilt by thousands of others. Effects are generally non-destructive and are performed without modifying your original files. Powerful batch operations for renaming (with undo!), reworking, exporting, file format conversion, a compact, thoughtfully designed interface and a great number of smart tools round up this unique and incredibly useful software package that no real graphician should live without. Detailed information on Picture Arena can be found at http://www.picturearena.com/.

Will there be a port of Picture Arena to MorphOS or AmigaOS?

Picture Arena heavily bases on MacOS® X technologies that don't have any counterparts on MorphOS or AmigaOS. A port therefore is impossible.

Where has the AMIGA site gone?

The AMIGA site, for already some time now, has moved to http://amiga.iospirit.de/. Since there were no other product pages until now, the company domain has redirected to this subdomain until now. With the release of Picture Arena, the redirection has been changed to http://www.picturearena.com/. The AMIGA pages will of course stay online. Regarding the company domain, a portal site is planned for the future, that will then also link to the AMIGA pages.

Further news

The shop system has been reworked from ground up. Orders can now be made much easier and faster - an accout is no longer required. Furthermore IOSPIRIT GmbH now accepts American Express credit cards in addition to Visa and Mastercard. The free bundling of drivers introduced with the last promotion will be kept. The VHI RS232 and IOUSB DigiCam driver packages will be bundled with VHI Studio, the IOUSB Scanner Package will be bundled with fxSCAN respectively. They come for free at no additional cost, but therefore without support and functional guarantee.

felix made alot of nice efforts for Amiga in the past and therefor i guess that this is the reason for elwood to submit it as news but as soon as i saw this news item i where hoping they also had things like Ibrowse back in their system along with the other things.


anyway i wish felix the best of luck on his mac ventures.

Because :
- Amiga pages have moved
- Felix will be able to talk about Amiga in the Mac community
- Mac users that will look at his new product will see the Amiga name and they will know it's not dead.

I hope Felix will put some links to Amiga websites on his page.

I wonder which technologies these are that are not available on OS 4. Anyway, since I don't own a Mac and also don't see a reason to buy one I won't have the opportunity to test the new stuff. Sad, I liked his former Amiga products.

By technologies, I'me sure he means Aqua/cocoa- the UI interface and available widgets etc...not always a simple thing to port. Then there's also the fact that OS X is a POSIX complaint OS at it's core...which neither MOS nor AOS are..

I just had a quick look at this app, and this is sweet.

Looks slick, way easy to use, can export in a variety of methods.

Roll your pointer over a thumbnail and it is enlarged for easy viewing.

Probably beats a lot of the simple competitors. Like iPhoto.

And the intro price can't be beat. Sure beats iView Multimedia, which costs like $250. And looks like it's a lot better than the iView Media that is bundled with Toast (Looks like an OSX app, they claim it is, but it ain't.)

OS4 needs apps like this. But due to the nature of OSX, it's a lot easier to do this on a Mac. Apple has taken a lot of the important features you need and incorporated them into the OS, making it very easy to write a program, without having to sweat the details.

Much like what the XPK libraries did for Amiga programs like Term. You didn't need to know all those protocols like Xmodem, you just used a library. If the user needed Kermit, he could add it. Or a terminal emulation mode, like VT100.

Sadly, it would take a lot of work to bring OS4 to this level.

People submit PC related news here, so no need to moan about one piece of Mac related news for a change, plus some Amiga users here may also use a Mac, and there are numerous mentions of Amiga in the article.
