Macros Recording Function, RAW Developer, More in GraphicConverter 11

Independent developer, Lemke Software GmbH today is proud to announce the release and immediate availability of GraphicConverter 11, an important update to their popular image editing utility for macOS. The utility, popularly known as the “Swiss Army Knife” of image editing applications, can convert any of over 200 graphic file formats into any of over 90 other graphic formats.

 

The 1.5 million global users of GraphicConverter will find exciting new features in version 11, including a useful macro recording function, a RAW developer feature, the ability to view and unpack archive files, the ability to create gradients and duo-tone images, and more.

GraphicConverter 11’s Record Macros function allows users to record functions they use repeatedly in the same order to apply to other files. The new function saves time, making it easier to apply functions to multiple images.

 

The new RAW Developer feature makes it easier to edit RAW images, thanks to its full-screen dialog when opening RAW files, which offers controls for Exposure, Contrast, and Color Corrections. Picture noise can be reduced, even with 6 controllers.

 

GraphicConverter’s Unpack Archives feature allows users to view the pictures and documents inside an archive file and unpack them if so desired. The function works with ZIP, TAR, TGZ, and more formats, 13 in all. Plus, editors that organize their work using Apple’s Finder Tags will appreciate the browser context menu’s ability to directly display and change these tags.

 

Wide-angle photography always has a tendency to distort faces and objects on each end of an image. GraphicConverter 11’s new Wide Equalization feature reduces the distortion, making the shots look more natural.

 

New functionality in the app now means creating a gradient as a background for a collage or other use is as simple as a few clicks of the mouse. Easily create color gradients with up to 10 colors. The new Duo-Tone feature allows photographers to color their shots with two colors. The darker shades use color 1, while the lighter tones use color two.

A Novel Cure for Writer’s Block – Lyttony 1.0 for Mac

Independent software developer SchwanSongs Software today announces the release and immediate availability of “Lyttony” 1.0, a rather novel opening-sentence-generator for the Macintosh. It can create millions of original and thought-provoking story-openers, useful for both teachers and students in creative writing classes, authors or writing clubs needing new inspiration, or just quick ideas for daily writing practice.

 

 

Lyttony does not require the user to choose from confusing topic lists or to play 20-questions first. The user is immediately provided ready-to-use opening lines, with no restrictions on their use. They can copy them as-is into their next best-seller, or edit them to their liking.

 

Lyttony can send a new line every day, and create customized stories with the user’s name and favorite color included in the text.

 

There are two extra-purchase features. Lyttony can read the text aloud in a user-chosen computerized voice. Lyttony can also be synchronized with “Global StoryTime”, so users can receive the same line, at the same time, as everyone else in the world.

 

Main features:
* Personalized – The user can add their name, pet, favorite color, etc. and Lyttony will integrate these into its stories.

* Customized – The Preferences/Settings page lets them choose a favorite color for the story text.

* Bookmark & Rewind – Each opener has its own unique 16-character “Story-Code” which, if typed in, can instantly re-display that exact opener again, on anyone’s “Lyttony” app. The user can display the list of bookmarks, and choose a prior “bookmarked” opener to re-display. This is good for bookmarking/saving and revisiting prior funny ones, or sending the code to other users so they can jump to it it too.

* Daily Dose – Lyttony can send a daily idea without even running the app. After turning on “Daily Notifications”, the user can choose an hour of the day to have it delivered, and every day they will get a new story idea. They can read it in place in the notification center, or click it to have it displayed in the “Lyttony” app.

* Global-Sync – With this option turned on, every Lyttony user in the world can get the same story at the same time, no matter where they live. So if two users in different countries both choose “every hour”, then their Lyttony apps will dish out identical stories together every hour. This is an extra-purchase feature.

* Read Aloud – Lyttony can either automatically or manually speak the stories out loud in any of the installed (macOS or iOS) text-to-speech voices. This is an extra-purchase feature.

* Share – Users can send their favorite openers to friends via e-mail/Facebook/chat/photos, or copy/paste them directly into their writing project.

 

The name “Lyttony” comes obliquely from Edward Bulwer-Lytton, a Victorian-era British novelist/playwright, who penned the infamous opening line, “It was a dark and stormy night…” and who created the quote “The pen is mightier than the sword!” Lyttony builds on the same versatile and proprietary “MakeSents(C) Engine” technology as some of SchwanSongs’ prior offerings, like “Ask Fortuna” and “Pass the Phrase”

 

System Requirements:
Lyttony works on any Intel Macintosh running macOS X 10.10 or newer

 

Pricing and Availability:
Lyttony is $0.99 (USD), with the features “Read Aloud” and “Global-Sync” each priced as $0.99 in-app-purchases, and available worldwide exclusively through the Mac App Store.
