Play With Pictures
Type of Program: Image Manipulation
Supported Platforms: Win XP/Vista
Company Name: Vertus
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
Ease of Installation:
