What’s Coming Up Next? – Tom Bluewater Introducing Cut Extreme 2 for macOS

Mac application Cut Extreme 2






TOKYO (Tom Bluewater) – We still have 10 more days left this month. I guess I have time enough to release a new software title. In fact, I submitted a new desktop application to Mac App Store several minutes ago. This new software submission is called Cut Extreme 2.

If you want to make a rectangular cutout of a picture, you can do so with Preview. What if you want to make a cutout with a complex shape (like a heart, a tree, a star…) other than a rectangle?

Cut Extreme 2 is an upgrade version of an existing desktop application titled CutAround Extreme, which was first introduced in June, 2015. These applications let you make a cutout out of a picture with a shape made by a bezier curve. This application is now free. Shape collections are available as in-app purchases.

After selecting a picture to work with, select a shape with a drop-down menu so that you can make a cutout as to how you make one out of a picture. Then use the combo box right below to set a size of a cutout. Finally, click on the cut button (looking like scissors) to make a cutout. All cutouts are saved in the list to the right.
