Aquatint 1.1 released by Stick SoftwareCreate Aqua-style images from simple stencils, or experiment with special effects (September 03, 2004)
Stick Software announced version 1.1 of Aquatint, an image manipulation tool for Mac OS X. Aquatint gives you the ability to make glossy, "liquid" icons, buttons and logos more easily than you ever imagined possible. Just make a black and white silhouette, or "stencil", of your desired image, and Aquatint will do the rest! No artistic ability required! Aquatint can also make a wide variety of other looks, all based on the same simple stencil.
New in version 1.1 of Aquatint: vastly simpler stencil creation, numeric fields for input of exact parameter values, (optional) online version checking, a Preferences panel, lots of new display customization options, a more streamlined UI for trouble-free operation, and a few bug fixes thrown in for good measure.
Aquatint joins Stick Software products such as Eyeballs, Fracture, PhotoReviewer, BigFoot, Measles, Trisection and Constrictor. It is shareware, with a price of only $15 ($50 for commercial users), and it's free to try.

About Stick Software
Stick Software is a developer of top-quality shareware, freeware and open-source products for Mac OS X. Our slogan is "Anti-Productivity Tools for the Discerning User". We want to make computers fun, friendly, easy and aesthetic. Our software will probably never help you balance your checkbook, do your taxes, schedule meetings, or write the Great American Novel. But it will brighten your day — or so we hope.
As for the "discerning user" part, well, that's up to you. But our hope is that you will recognize that Stick Software is kind of a special company. We don't release software with any (repeat, any) known bugs — we ship our apps when they are ready to ship, not when we arrive at a management-chosen production date. We don't ever charge you money for upgrades to our products. We don't spam you with undesired advertisements and promotions. We listen to your feedback, and respond to you with emails written by humans, not with automatically generated notices intended to deflect you. We develop our software for the Mac first, instead of making inferior ports from Windows. We even take requests from our users!
We're here for you, the discerning user. If you find bugs, or want features added, let us know. If you have ideas for great new products that fit in with our philosophy, drop us a line. And if you appreciate the software we've already made, or the philosophy behind it, please send in your payment.
