Play With Pictures

Type of Program: Image Manipulation

Company Name: Vertus
Price: $39.95


This is a neat piece of software which takes the tedium out of cutting and pasting objects from one image to another.

You quite simply set a background (image or color) for the recipient image,Select the image you want to cut the object from and wait a few seconds for it to render (just like Magic Wand in photo editors but in one pass), then use the erase tool to cut out the non necessary parts.

There’s a touch-up tool which smoothes over any sharp edges and provides a seamless blend between the background and foreground. There are simple slider tools for adjusting the transparency of each cut-out, as well as alter its color tint, and a quick duplicate button will copy the cut-outs as many times as required. You can customise your images by adding text boxes for titles and captions, or insert pieces of text randomly.

Adjustable Speech bubbles are available and can be independently adjusted to suit. Play With Pictures also provides excellent online tutorials to help users with the software.

It is a really fun piece of software which produces results only limited by your imagination.
