Who likes to have fun with photos?

DoubleTake is for stitching photos, screen shots and scans to larger images.

DoubleTake works well with iPhoto and Aperture from where you can drag and drop the photos you want to stitch. With automatic and manual control and color tools for changing exposure settings you can stitch and combine images which were not even intended for stitching.

Poster Printing

Some photos, not just panoramas, just deserve to be printed large. DoubleTake splits the photo and prints it on pages ready to be cut and pasted into a poster. Poster printing will let you set the size of the finished poster directly or let you fill a number of pages to the edges to give you the largest poster for the least cutting and pasting.

Learn more about printing with DoubleTake.

Stitching automatically can reorder photos in any order but it will recognize the time stamps and file names and try the obvious combinations first. iPhoto users who shoot panoramas left to right will find it quite easy to see which photos are intended for stitching when browsed in iPhoto.

Stitching manually allows for creative stitching and for stitching of photos where it is not obvious which way they fit. Sample images where manual arrangement are also available on DoubleTake’s web site.

The manual for DoubleTake is rich with screen shots and written as short as possible while still including all features.

Screen Shots

DoubleTake takes special care of screenshots. It can search pixel by pixel for the perfect alignment. This works well unless you have screenshots with white borders around them which matches in an infinite number of ways.

Doubletake can receive images via copy and paste, but if you want to take more than one screen shot drag and drop from the Desktop may be the simplest way to do it.

Add Interactivity To Your Web Site Without Slow Loading Multimedia

Impress your web site visitors with interactive image maps using standards based HTML and CSS. RAGE MapDesign provides an amazingly fast, easy way to create image maps for your web site that respond to user actions such as moving your mouse over certain sections of an image.

Image maps are clickable images on a web site that behave differently depending on where a user clicks on the image. The biggest problem when designing image maps is defining how your web site should react when a user clicks a certain section of an image.

RAGE MapDesign offers a WYSIWYG (what-you-see-is-what-you-get) user interface, allowing you to visually create simple or complex image maps for your web site. In addition, RAGE MapDesign lets you add mouse-over and mouse-down effects using standards based CSS so you can easily make your web site stand out among your visitors.

Since RAGE MapDesign uses only HTML and CSS, there is no need for your users to install third party plug-ins or add-ons. Your web site will still be fast, responsive and compatible with all major web browsers.

Make your web sites come alive with RAGE MapDesign.

Monitor Your Network Easily with PacketStream

PacketStream provides point-and-click activation of the Mac’s built-in network monitoring program, which is usually available only from the command line. By clicking a few buttons, you can monitor data as it streams over your network–especially useful for checking web traffic, network bottlenecks, or even suspicious network activity. All network data is displayed in the application itself, and you can save the data to a file for further analysis later.

PacketStream provides a user-friendly way to configure and use the Mac’s network monitoring tools. It is easier than typing in cryptic commands in Terminal. As a native Aqua application, it is more intuitive to use than complex, hard-to-install, Unix-based GUI programs. And it is simpler and less expensive than the “swiss army knife” network programs, which are overkill for most users.

Why PacketStream’s Better

PacketStream compared to Terminal and Unix-based programs:

  • Simple to use: Set a couple of user preferences, click a button, and go.
  • Save network data to a file for later analysis.
  • Monitor traffic on specific network ports.
  • Thorough, searchable user documentation via the “Help” menu.

PacketStream is a universal binary and Mac OS X 10.4 is the minimum supported platform.

    Sound Byte

    Normally: $79.00

    ZOT Price: $39.00

    Click to MacZOT Try Now  

    Atttention: DJs and Music Enthusiasts! – Set up your carts just like in the old days!

    Sound Byte brings the cart machine to the computer age. You can assign up to 75 recordings per rack, and assign each to a button. Clicking on a button plays that recording. Multiple recordings can be played at the same time.

    Sound Byte is used for radio automation by DJs and sound effects people at sporting events and theater productions, and for those who love to energize a party with awesome music selections!

    It works much like the “cart machines” that were common years ago. You have a rack of 75 buttons, each represents one sound file. Clicking on the button plays that sound file. You can also assign a hotkey to each button, so typing that key plays the file as well. Buttons can be color-coded to make them easy to find.

    Setting up a cart is easy, just drag and drop a sound file on a cart button.

    There’s a playlist, where you can add sound files, and specify the order that they should be played, for automated sound playback.

    Recordings can be set to fade out at a specified fade rate. They can also be made to loop (repeat continuously). The cut in and cut out times can also be set, if playback of only a portion of a sound file is required.

    Sound Byte can play recordings in any sound file format that QuickTime can handle, such as AIFF, mp3, WAVE, uLaw, au, etc.

    The Apple IR remote can be used to control sound playback.

    Possible Uses:

    • Radio Stations – jingles, advertisements, PSAs, songs, announcements, and more.
    • Plays and radio/TV productions – perfect for playing sound effects.
    • Sports events – play sound effects when a team scores, etc.
    • Music collections – organize and easily play your songs.
    • Ham radio – use for generating CQ calls, for contesting etc.

    Sound Byte is the perfect application to use whenever you need to quickly and easily play a variety of recorded sounds.

    For more information, visit www.blackcatsystems.com.
