Mac software simplyClip

TOKYO (MacHouse) – It’s been a while since we released the last software title. Several hours ago, we did submit our 4th Mac software title of the month. This new software release is called simplyClip.

simplyClip is a desktop application that you can use to clip an area of a picture, which can be saved as an image file. It’s quite easy to use. All you have to do is define a clip area with the rectangular path. Then just click on the Export toolbar button to save that area as an image. As you relocate or resize the clip path, the the clip preview imagewell will show you how a clipped image looks like. What you see on the clip preview imagewell is what you get.
