BeLight has introduced a new image editor for Mac
OS X 10.4 Tiger users. It's called Image Tricks
and it does have quite a few tricks up its sleeve, considering it's free. Image Tricks utilizes
Tiger's Core Image
filters for editing, manipulating and applying various effects to your photos. To use it, you
just drop an image on the "well" and choose an effect or command from the list on the
left side. If your image is stored in iPhoto, you can even drag and drop the thumbnail from your
iPhoto library window. You can crop, color, stylize, distort, blur... and perform numerous other
modifications to your pics. If you use any of BeLight's other programs, you'll also appreciate the integrated plugins that Image Tricks
installs for them.
Since it relies on Core Image, you'll need Mac OS X 10.4 or later to use it. I've
been playing with it for a little while this morning, and I must say it does a darn good job for FREE.
