There are many cases where you may want to add various 3d effects to your images. Perhaps you want to give them a unique and special look, customizing your photos to share with your friends and family. Or, perhaps you need to have a more professional and eye-catching design for a brochure or website. However, adding 3d effects to images is not something that can be done without third party software. Adding 3d effects can be done with the expensive, high end graphic design programs, but these are normally preset templates which cannot be fully customized. Also, such programs can be highly complicated to learn due to their complexity and great abundance of features, most of which you will probably never find any use for.

For designers and publishers or anyone else who wants to add advanced 3d effects to digital images for any reason, 3D Image Commander provides the perfect solution. A unique program focusing on this particular area of image manipulation, 3D Image Commander is easy and enjoyable to use, offering you all of the features you need without any strings attached. The program is also very reasonably priced and if it is 3d effects that you are looking for, then this offers the best solution. It differs from other photo editing suites in that it offers complete real time image manipulation with full customization on every available 3d effect. The 3d effects are original and edited and adjusted completely in real time whereas other similar programs typically only offer a number of templates and pre-set effects.

3D Image Commander is a pleasure to use, and while it is designed to provide professional results for professional designers, its learning curve is not steep and requires no special knowledge to get started. The user-friendly interface is intuitive and colorful with various customization options as well. The program’s features are clearly understandable and quick and easy to use as well. Using 3D Image Commander, you can also create advanced thumbnails with various 3d styles. The process, while fully customizable, is only a matter of a few clicks. You can also use the text feature to place copyright notices on your images in such a way that they fit with the manipulated image. Some of the 3d effects supported include 3d perspective, curving and reflection. Other effects such as shadows or auras are also supported.

For those working with large numbers of images, batch image processing is also supported. Simply choose the 3d effects that you want to apply to the images and let the software do the rest of the work for you, processing hundreds of images in a matter of minutes. You can easily and quickly prepare your images for publication on the web and supported formats include JPG, PNG, GIF, BMP, TIFF and PSD.

3D Rotation and Curving

3D Image Commander lets you create beautiful 3D effects for your images.

Curves and Stroke

3D Image Commander can create advanced thumbnails with cool styles and effects like dropping shadow, glow and reflection.

Batch Mode

3D Image Commander lets batch processing thousands of images by one click.

Protect your copyright

Using 3D Image Commander you can add text comments to your images. You can change comment’s properties in WYSIWYG mode.

System Requirements: Mac OSX 10.4 or later.

User comments

  • Just awesome. I spent the last few months backing up several hundred DVDs without a single failed copy. It also copies quite fast. Thanks. :] xXAkumuXx
  • A great piece of software and at a reasonable price too. Very very easy to use. Once set up, takes seconds to start up and ‘boom’ it’s doing it’s job. Flawless. Highly recommend purchasing this. It’s got better and better with each update. Winco
  • I always used Ripit – which overall I can’t complain of – to backup my son’s dvd collection but lately it failed (corrupted file) with some Winnie the Pooh dvd. I downloaded Mac DVDRipper Pro and it flawlessy worked. taipan2008
  • Wow! Mac DVDRipper Pro was able to successfully rip a DVD with a really bad scratch that neither RipIt, MTR 3.0 nor Handbrake could rip. The $10 price tag is a bargain compared to RipIt and MTR 3.0, especially given that Mac DVDRipper Pro was to rip a DVD that the others couldn’t. I’m a very happy guy! Drdul
  • Successfully ripped a damaged DVD that MacTheRipper wouldn’t do. It’s worth the modest price tag. brayne
  • OK. So this SW ripped my Click DVD in 43 minutes where FairMount, MacTheRipper3, Handbrake and VideoMonkey failed… I clear “BUY” from me!!!! Toerk_2
  • I was able to rip a scratched DVD with this tool, which MTR and Ripit refused to rip. It also ripped 2 new DVDs (bought yesterday) which were not rippable with MTR or Ripit.
    So far I like this program a lot ! Beamy

Search, Browse and Read Man Pages: Fast and Easy!

Manpower is a man page GUI for Mac OS X. Man pages are the main system of Unix software documentation, offering descriptions of the functionality and methods of the various Unix command-line programs. Man pages are typically accessed in the Unix terminal–but this is cumbersome. It takes a lot of typing to search and read man pages in the Unix console. Manpower provides a simple, elegant three-pane interface that makes reading man pages as easy as reading e-mail.

Why Manpower?

Manpower compared to Terminal and other man page viewers:

  • Clean, three-pane interface: Reading man pages is as easy as reading e-mail.
  • Search, browse, display, and save new man pages in a single window.
  • Thorough user documentation via the “Help” menu.
  • Convert man pages to text, PDF, and printed output.
  • Access man pages via AppleScript and Services menu.
  • What’s New in Version 4.0

    • Fully native Cocoa toolbar.

    • Fully native Cocoa printing.

    • Can be set as default viewer for man pages.

    • Improved AppleScript support.

    • Supports hyperlinks in man pages.

    • Integration with native Mac help viewer.

    Fabo Stacks – Facebook Stacks

    • Facebook Recommendations

    With these stacks, it becomes very simple to utilize the power of Facebook on your own sites!

    Notifications Stack

    The Notification Stack lets you show a message in a Growl-like style when a web page loads, or when a user clicks a link.

    We’ve all encountered Growl notifications when using our Macs. The Notification stack gets the message across, looks good and does not come across as obstrusive.

    DragZone Stack
    If you’ve used the iGoogle web site, you’ll have noticed that the page content are all placed inside boxes which can be moved around or minimized.

    Now you can do the same for your RapidWeaver-made site, using the DragZone stack. It’s really easy to use.

    This is great if you want to empower your site visitors to reorganize the content in a way that flows best for them. It’s all about user experience!

    Easy Slideshow Stack
    With this stack, it becomes really easy to create your own image slideshow on your web pages. Just drag and drop.

    No flash needed or used.

    Image Roundabout Stack
    You can create a carousel of images by drag and drop. Each image can then be linked to a web page.

    When a background image is clicked, it will be rotated to become the forefront image. Clicking on the image at the front will then bring the user to the web page you’ve linked.

    This makes for a spiffy-looking form of navigation, or it can serve as a mini gallery.

    Menu Stacks
    Every theme comes with menus. But what if you want to create your own?

    Menu Stacks allow you to make your own dropdown menus which need not conform to your site structure. You can specify what pages you want to add to the Menu Stacks; creating customized menus has never been easier!

    Requirements

    • RapidWeaver 4 or 5
    • Stacks (YourHead’s Rapidweaver Plugin)

    Cookie

    You could be unknowingly giving third-party’s access to all your personal information, browsing history and surfing habits.

    Data can be stored on your computer without you even knowing in a multitude of different formats: Cookies, Flash Cookies, Databases and local Storage.

    Cookie scans your computer for ALL types of Cookies, from all the top browsers, and is easily configured to remove all unwanted/tracking-advertising cookies. Cookie is super easy to use, just configure it once, and take control of your sensitive personal information.

    Cookies

    Most websites you visit will leave a small file called a ‘cookie’ on your computer to store information about you, and store any relevant site preferences. Most of the time this is fine, however some sites use this information to track your surfing habits for profiling/advertising purposes and more….

    Flash Cookies

    Flash Cookies, can potentially be even more insidious, as they can store up-to 25x more information (100Kb) than regular cookies. Flash Cookies can even be used to restore regular cookies, long after the original cookie has been deleted.

    Databases/Local Storage

    Databases, and Local Storage are generally more innocuous, and are used mainly by web applications to store data.


    Cookie, helps you to manage exactly who can access information about your online activities, all in one convenient location.

    With a clear and intuitive interface, Cookie is a must have application for anyone serious about protecting their personal information.

    After an initial simple setup, Cookie requires minimal effort to keep your computer clear from unwanted data-mining.

    Testimonials

    5 STARS!
    Great piece of software
    by Christopher Seymour – from the Mac App Store
    The software works well and uncovered many tracking cookies on my computer. The developer was very responsive and helpful when I experienced some performance issues that were caused by the large numbers cookies I originally had on my computer. Once the cookies were classified as favorites/not favorites and the tracking cookies deleted the software ran like a charm.

    All in all a great tool for removing any unwanted cookies from your Mac computer.

    5 STARS!
    Excellent App From Very Resposive Developer
    by birdchucker – from the Mac App Store
    As someone who is concerned about my online privacy and who is unhappy about being tracked by everyone and their brother, I was looking for an app like this that would get rid of tracking cookies in real time as I was browsing, so that I couldn’t be tracked. This app does just that! I have it set to delete all cookies every minute while I’m browsing, and it does a great job!

    The developer is very responsive as well. I sent an email before I purchased to find out some details of how Cookie worked and got a very quick personal respone. I also sent an email with technical questions and received a very quick personal response again. A++++ developer and app!

    I bought Cookie Stumbler before I discovered this developer and his app. I was unhappy with Cookie Stumber, personally. Cookie Stumbler forces you to quit your browser to delete the tracking cookies because it can’t delete them while the browser is open. It’s not very inuitive (to me) either. YMMV. Cookie is a much better app for my needs since it’s intuitive and deletes the cookies with my browser open, even while I surf the web.

    Highly recommended!

    5 STARS!
    Privacy at last
    by ga8 – from the Mac App Store
    This program is in my opinion essential for internet privacy on the mac. The browsers all have their own privacy controls to differing degrees. This seems to remove the remaining tracking cookies including flash.

    4½ STARS!
    Robotank – from MacUpdate
    Cookie is a fantastic app for simple and effective cookie management. It handles Flash cookies and local storage as well (including the ability to automatically protect Safari extension storage), and offers four ways to clear cookies you don’t want (on quitting Cookie or quitting a browser, by timer, and manually). In the short time it’s been out, Cookie has gained tracking cookie support, and increased its browser roster from Safari only to include Firefox, Camino, and Chrome/Chromium. There have been a couple of bugs in the last couple versions, but Russell provides great support, and he always works quickly to resolve any issues that pop up.

    Flame Painter

    Create amazing paintings with flame brushes.

    “It is an amazing and affordable tool that can produce any type of flame design one might wish to incorporate into one’s digital artwork. As a professional Photoshop illustrator I know that producing believable flame has always been tricky and laborious. Your tool completely changes how one builds flames in a Photoshop piece. The most phenomenal part is transparency. If the tool exported a compressed, flattened image which then had to be masked it would be a good tool. With the transparency ability it becomes a GREAT tool. Brilliant! Thanks!”
