TOKYO (MacHouse) – If I run out of software development ideas, what I usually do is… Hmm… Well… I just get on the Internet and look around till a light bulb turns on. That’s what happened a few days ago. As a result, I submitted a new software title to Mac App Store a few hours ago. This new software release is called Distoria.
Distoria is a desktop application that gives you 5 tools to distort a picture. Click anywhere over the picture to use the selected graphic filter. You can apply the same graphic filter to the picture repeatedly or use a combination of these tools to distort the picture. The application supports the full stack of Undo & Redo changes. So if you want to cancel the last effect, just press Command + Z.
- Use Bump to create a bump at the position you click on over the picture.
- Use Pinch to pinch the picture at the position you click.
- Use Twirl to rotate pixels around the position you click on.
- Use Vortex to rotate pixels around the position you click on.
- Use Hole to create a hollow area at the position you click on over the picture.
- See the whole picture with a preview canvas when the picture is bigger than the canvas.
- Save the current picture to a disk. Supported formats are BMP, GIF, JPEG, JPEG 2000, PNG, TIFF.
- The application supports the fullScreen mode.
- The application supports the retina screen. (tested with 2014 2.6 GHz 13″ MacBook Pro)
- Languages: English and Japanese only.
- Application file size: 10.6 MB.
- The application comes with a 11-page introduction window, giving the user a quick tour over how it works.
- 10.8 (tested with 10.8.5), 10.9 (tested with 10.9.5), 10.10 (tested with 10.10.2)
- 64-bit system
- Regardless of original resolutions, a final picture will be saved to a disk with resolutions of 72 dpi x 72 dpi for non-retina screen models (144 dpi x 144 dpi for retina screen models with JPEG, PNG, TIFF).
1.0.3 (Released on April 14, 2015)
- Fix: Quick Tour can show a wrong commentary for Page 1 if the user goes back to it from next page.
- Fix: The application could stay open even after the user quits it if the Quick Tour window is still open.
- Fix: The application could fail to apply a filter to a picture properly for some localizations.
