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.   Continue reading

What’s Coming Up Next? – MacHouse Introducing Buttons123 Plus for Mac OS X

Mac software Buttons123 Plus

TOKYO (MacHouse) – For the past one or two weeks, we’ve been having a serious network issue. As a result, we are not able to get on the Internet. So we may not be able to respond to your comments as early as you expect. We lose connection about 14 out of 24 hours each day. Life can sometimes get rough if it’s built on the premise that you are always connected.

Meanwhile, we’ve managed to build a new software title. It’s been several hours since we submitted it to Mac App Store. This new software release is called Buttons123 Plus.

Buttons123? No, it’s Buttons123 Plus. It’s an extended version of the former. Buttons123 lets you create web buttons with ease like 1-2-3. This new software release adds several features to the basic functions of Buttons123 so that you can make web buttons more attractive. Instead of selecting a solid color to paint the background button layer, Buttons123 Plus lets you paint it with a color gradation. And Buttons123 Plus lets you cast shadow on the text layer outwards. You can also emboss text inwards with a color of your selection.   Continue reading

What’s Coming Up Next? – MacHouse Introducing textLook for Mac OS X

Mac software textLook

TOKYO (MacHouse) – Hmm… We were going to quickly upgrade Pict2Curl with a feature that is only available with Mavericks. But that attempt failed a couple of days ago. Well, we have a backup plan. In fact, we submitted our second software title of the month to Mac App Store about an hour ago. This new software release is called textLook.

Sometimes, we just want to see where a particular key phrase appears in a text document, don’t we? Maybe, you want them highlighted with a color of your selection? textLook is a simple desktop application for that purpose. It lets you visually locate the occurrences of one or more key phrases you specify in a text document. If it’s just the matter of one key phrase, enter one to locate in the top text field. Or open the Keys window to set multiple key phrases to locate visually.   Continue reading

What’s Coming Up Next? – MacHouse Introducing deskShots for Mac OS X

Mac software deskShots

TOKYO (MacHouse) – Taking a desktop screenshot is something we do daily if not weekly or monthly. It’s just the matter of pressing Command + Shift + #3 or #4, right? Well, how do you highlight the area surrounding the mouse pointer, then? The software title that we submitted to Mac App Store several hours ago is not an ordinary screenshot application. This new software submission is called deskShots, by the way.

deskShots gives you several interesting options when you take a desktop screenshot. You of course have options of including or not including the mouse pointer. Would you also like to highlight the area surrounding the mouse pointer? You can choose a highlight color and its size (diameter). And, of course, you have options of taking a screenshot of the entire desktop area or defining a partial work area. Finally, click on the big green button to take a screen. Wait, do you want to take a screenshot immediately or maybe in 5 or 10 seconds?   Continue reading
