Hemera Goes Native with Photo-Objects

Royalty-free image collections support Mac OS X By Dave Nagel
It wasn't too long ago that Hemera's image collections didn't support the Mac at all. Now, after releasing its royalty-free libraries for the Mac, Hemera has also introduced Mac OS X-native versions of two of its largest collections. Both collections are also still available for older Macintosh and Windows operating systems.

The OS X-native collections include Photo-Objects 50,000 Volumes I and II. Both libraries include more than 50,000 photographic images in a variety of categories, including full scenes and objects on white (with alphas). The package includes a catalog utility for browsing and searching the collection, with the option of storing thumbnails of all the images from both collections on your local drive. It also includes a utility for applying image-based effects onto text.

The images themselves are available at the resolution of 300 DPI (scalable down to 72 DPI), and each image can be exported from the catalog utility in a variety of formats, including 32-bit TIFFs.

Beginning now, all shipments of Photo-Objects will include the OS X-native software components. Users of the OS 9 version can upgrade for free via a download from Hemera's site. For new users, the volumes sell for about $100. A demo version, including 50 free images, is also available form Hemera's site. For more information, visit
