Some time ago, I reviewed Repligator 5. Now, I have the extreme pleasure of reviewing Repligator 6.
Import an image and by simply hitting one key, you get a series of effects on the image. Then you simply save the ones you like. You can of course, perform further fine tuning on the image until you get it just how you want it. There is no need for bothersome plugins...the program is all inclusive.
The upgrade offers new filters (6) and a background gradient designer as well as a "larger image cache for faster reproduction of previously created images." Every dialog box has it's own help menu and to make it even easier, wizards are found throughout the program. You are told to email for any further help, something that I have discovered first hand is readily given.
The toolbar is full of fun things. You can use simply one key or explore the others to further transform your image. You can "mix" your images...use the original with the transformed to make even more breathtaking special effects. You can also work with text. Take a simple black and white image and transform it into a multitude of eye-catching images .There are some great tutorials included to help you on your way.
I have been using the previous version of Repligator for some time now and have whole heartedly switched over to V6. It is one of my very favorite programs and I will continue to use it in my graphics designing. Payment is by credit card via online ordering, fax or phone.
