WindowClipMBI is a menu bar app that takes single shots and composite shots of windows, including menus and tool tips, of any other app to the clipboard. The app is conveniently accessible from the menu bar all the time, from any app. There is no need to remember numerous key combinations or search through layers of windows for generating multi-window shots.

What can WindowClipMBI do for me?

Displays thumbnails of all app windows.

The menu contains images of all current visible app windows, including menus and other auxiliary windows, like the menu bar, tool tips, Desktop and Dock. Simply select a menu item to take its picture and put it on the clipboard, optionally opening it in Preview also.

Scale, filter and reflect clips.

Clippings can be scaled, and special effects can be applied, such as converting to monochrome. Reflections can be added to each clipping, with various options.

Timed screen shots and composites.

Screen shots and “all windows” composites can be timed so you can set up the windows prior to capture. For screen shots, options for including the current mouse cursor or hiding the Desktop is available. Composites can be full screen or trimmed to the smallest bounding box. WindowClipMBi is also available from an app’s Services menu.

System Requirements: Mac OSX 10.5 or later. Mountain Lion Ready.

Developer Interview…

Hi, my name is Joe Pagliaro, and I am the founder of Limit Point Software. I have been developing Mac software for about 20 years, from System 7 to today’s Mac OS X Mountain Lion.

Now, we not only develop for the Mac, but of course also for the iOS platform. This is a very exciting time due to the growing synergy between the iOS and Mac platforms. I love developing for these platforms because there are so many possibilities and I am excited about the future products we will provide for them.

Now for questions and answers related to this product and the Mac.

  • What’s the most unique, useful feature of your product?

    The ability to list all apps that currently have visible windows in the easy to reach, ever present system menu bar menu and to preview each of those windows from within that menu and take their picture.

  • Why did you create this app? or What need were you trying to satisfy?

    I actually created this app for myself to take pictures of all my other app’s windows. I have written many apps and WindowClipMBI facilitates technical support, documentation and website creation for all my apps.

  • What is most interesting to you about developing SW for the Mac platform.?

    A great source of interest, and one of the best perks of being a Mac developer is attending the annual World Wide Developer Conference where all new things Mac are exhibited by the people who created them.

    Also interesting is the constant generation and evolution of an enormous amount of fun technologies and requisite hardware, including the close symbiotic relationship between the software and hardware.

    It is also interesting how Mac development is made possible by a complete set of many free development tools for building, testing and distributing apps.

  • What features should a prospective buyer look into during a trial of your product?

    One of the features I like most about WindowClipMBI is its ability to create timed composite shots of an app’s windows. But I also like the ability to create full screenshots that include the mouse cursor, whatever it may be at the time the shot is taken, and the integration of one of our other apps, Shade, which “cleans up” the desktop for lucid full screenshots.

  • What are some interesting experiences you’ve had creating new versions of your software when OS is upgraded?

    Through all the years I have been developing on the Mac I have been immensly impressed with how most products remain almost 100% reliable and stable across upgrades, even major version updates. For example, with Mountain Lion absolutely no modifications to any of our numerous products were needed for compatibility!

    OS upgrades have enabled us to enhance our apps in unexpected ways, or even create apps that would have been very difficult otherwise. For example, WindowClipMBI itself was easy to create because of a technology introduced in Mac OS 10.5 Leopard.

    With the introduction of Mac OS 10.6 Lion we took advantage of the opportunity to enhance and perfect almost all of our apps for inclusion in the new Mac App Store, and that has dramatically increased our success and excitement to be a Mac developer.

  • What’s your favorite Mac app out there from another developer? Why?

    My favorite app has been, for a very long time, Mathematica, by Wolfram Research. This is because I am a mathematician! Math is what I majored in at college and attended grad school for, and back then I used Mathematica a lot to aid in my course and research work.

  • What features would you like to add to your product that at this time seem improbable/impossible?

    To include the windows of apps on other machines on the local, or even remote, network. Less improbable/impossible: It would also be nice to be able to selectively include multiple windows from any and all apps, selected from a graphical list display.

  • What would you like a user to ask you?

    Will you always support this product for as long as possible? Answer: yes.

  • What should I ask that I’m forgetting?

    How long did it take for you to write this app? Answer: just a few days because of the development environment and the system software at my disposal. This is one of the great advantages of developing for Mac and iOS, speed and ease of development.

  • What are the answers to some common questions people have about your app before they buy?

    This is a very simple and straightforward app, so I do not get very many questions about it at all. One question that is interesting is the inquiry as to whether I will support other destinations of the snapshot, such as a file or an email message attachment. Answer: It is planned. Currently the output is the clipboard, and optionally a new document in Preview app.

User feedback is a huge asset to me, and I always encourage users to ask questions and offer suggestions for my products. I very frequently implement user suggestions. So if anyone has any questions or feedback during or after this promo, please send them to me at joe@limit-point.com. Thanks, and enjoy!

What is DVD Snap 3?

DVD Snap 3 allows you to capture screenshots from any movie running in Apple’s DVD Player.

Pick any scene you want and DVD Snap 3 either snaps a single photo or series of timed snaps in an interval of at least half a second.

All your captured photos are automatically taken to
DVD Snap 3′s beautiful photo gallery where you can export them to a destination folder of your choice in any common format.

Snap it – the way you want.

Everyone has different tasks to accomplish, whether you need a still image or entire photo series, DVD Snap 3 has always the right method for your case.

Think of a particular moment in your favorite movie, jump to the scene and hit record. That’s it – in an incredibly short time, your photo was saved to the integrated gallery.

Let’s say you’re working on collages, mashups or studies and you’re not sure which scenes are going to work best with the project. For this case, DVD Snap 3 includes a feature called “Timed Snap”.

Just enable the timer and hit the record button. DVD Snap 3 is going to automatically snap a photo in your defined time interval while the movie keeps playing. Afterwards, you can quickly browse through your photo collection and decide which photos to be exported or deleted. It’s that easy.

Even action or slow motion scenes are no big deal in DVD Snap 3, thanks to the timer with the short snap interval of just half a second.

A beautiful gallery for your photos.

What is the best photo capturing application without the right management? DVD Snap 3 was especially designed to feature an intuitive, clearly organized and easy-to-use photo gallery. Snapped screenshots are automatically sorted by their timecode or creation date.

For a closer Quick Look preview, just select your desired photos and hit the space bar.

The photo gallery also comes with a handy search feature for the photo’s timecode as well as a zoom slider for adjusting the photo size within the gallery. This can be especially useful when comparing entire photo series.

Export to any common file format.

DVD Snap 3 captures all screenshots in their original movie resolution (PAL / NTSC) while optionally cropping all black bars during export.

Thanks to DVD Snap 3′s own database, searching, loading and exporting of hundreds of photos takes just a few seconds.

Just drag your best shots to a destination of your choice and DVD Snap 3 exports them labeled with the movie timeframe, date/time created or a consecutive number.

As a result of the great performance, 100 photos are exported in only nine seconds. If you prefer other common photo formats for further processing, just hit “Restore” and choose between JPEG, PNG, TIFF and PDF.

Made for Lion and Mountain Lion.

Since OS X Lion, DVD Snap 3 is the first and only application to feature screenshot capturing in Apple’s DVD Player.

The third major version of DVD Snap has been completely rewritten from the ground up to support OS X 10.7 Lion and now OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion.

After an intensive time of developing, DVD Snap 3 is now the exclusive DVD Player screenshot-capturing-solution, featuring an all new user interface, focused on the beautiful photo gallery. Speaking of enhancements, photos are no longer taken upscaled in full-screen mode, but at the native DVD resolution.

DVD Snap 3 works also perfectly under Snow Leopard. As usual, the new version is totally free for all previous users of DVD Snap.

What users say about DVD Snap 2

“Being somewhat cyber-challenged, I required “some” technical support, and the developer was not only responsive, but also very reassuring – I felt like I had a private tutor. Now that I know how the program works, I’m impressed. It really is easy to use, and the picture quality is absolutely excellent.” – John A. Sunkiskis

“I have been computing professionally since 1983, when I computerized a nationally known business in Manhattan. DVD Snap 2.0.1 is a very cool program; it really helped me do this latest project. Tobias Jordan, (Developer & Founder of Tool Force Software), has just provided me with the best, most comprehensive, innovative, thorough, professional, caring, knowledgeable, personal tech support I have ever enjoyed in my entire life!” – Christina Stow

“This program does what it promises. I wanted it to snap only the contents within the frame of DVD Player. It did just that. The picture quality was superb. That’s what this program is supposed to do; that’s what this program did.” – Timothy James

“DVD Snap is fast, easy and it just works – Mac Like! I use it everyday and have had no problems at all. I like it and recommend it highly.The developer is very responsive to user feedback and provides rapid updates. Great App!” - Paul Schlegel

System requirements: OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard, OS X 10.7 Lion or OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion
Intel Mac with at least 1 GB RAM (2 GB or more recommended)

    The ULTIMATE way to SUPERCHARGE
    your word of mouth marketing!
    Create custom apps for all of your clients!

    So simple – Your Grandmother could use it!



    “Even though I have just started using MyPhotoApp it is already bringing big dividends with my clients. One client showed it off to a friend and the friend called to book the next day. This will be another tool that will fit very well in my marketing.” — David Quisenberry, Images That Speak, McKinney Texas

    “I’m glad i took the time to check out what you’re all about, cause now I am a fan for life and absolutely love www.myphotoapp.com! I have seen others even tried them but the ease and i’ll admit the pricing too totally hooked me!I I already made 3 Apps and the clients loved them!” — Adita Perez, Adita’s Photography, New Jersey


    How to build a custom app in less than 2 minutes! Really!

    This is a short 2 minute movie showing how easy and quickly one can create an iPhone application from scratch.

    Using the app on an iPhone

    A short movie showing you how to install and use the app on an iPhone. iPad and iPod usage and installation are identical. Android usage is the same, but the install is a little bit different.

    Demo App

    Check out how this works on your mobile device.

    Just bring up your web browser on your mobile device and enter the url http://apps.MyPhotoApp.com/demo/demo.

    How to integrate Pro Select with MyPhotoApp.com

    This video was provided by one of our users, Arjen Eeken, and shows how easy it is to integrate MyPhotoApp with Pro Select.

    Click to Developer’s Site for more info.


    Highlights include:

    • You can create all the apps you want — no limit.
    • 30 day, no questions asked, money back guarantee. We only want happy customers! We want to give you time to see if this works for your business. Give this an honest effort of creating apps and putting them into your clients hands and watch your referrals increase. Just one new client should easily will pay for your subscription!
    • Usage Statistics – See how many times your apps have been installed and how many times they have been viewed.
    • Works On iPhone, iPad, iPod and Android mobile devices.

    Everyone knows that word of mouth marketing is the best. You get well qualified clients. It is not enough to just create a remarkable service where people are willing to refer you. The problem is how to keep reminding your clients to refer people to you without nagging them.

    MyPhotoApp is the perfect referral enabling solution.

    iPhone usage is skyrocketing. It is normal for our clients to have an iPhone… especially the more affluent ones who have disposable income to spend on things
    like photography. When people get together it is usual for people to use their iPhones often to check on mail, text, answer the phone, etc. Having their own personal icon on their iPhone is a constant reminder of your photography business and a very natural conversation starter “Hey look at this cool personal app my photographer created for me! They ROCK!!!” .

    Another scenario is that during a conversation, photography comes up. Your clients will have all the marketing collateral they need right there in their handy iPhone. You can even include special offers that your clients can share with their friends. James Cook Photography includes a coupon for a “free iPhone” app in every app they distribute. This is a low cost, high value incentive for people to book you. They want to be cool too and have their own iPhone app.

    How MyPhotoApp can benefit your business…

    There are several reasons why MyPhotoApp apps are wow items. First, it is very practical. People like to have pictures on their phones. Everyone has pictures on their phone because they are easy to store there. Finding pictures they want to share is usually a several minute task at least. With MyPhotoApp, their (your) pictures are only an icon push away. Second, there is the vanity factor. Who else has their very own icon on their phone? Not many. So your clients feel special and cool, especially when they are around friends.

    The uses in your business are limitless. Here are some common ones…

    • Giving free apps to everyone of your clients has a hugh impact on your referral marketing. Not only are you giving them a “wow” gift — having their very own icon on their mobile device, you are also arming everyone of your clients with marketing collateral that is always with them. And because having their own icon is cool, they will want to share if more often.
    • If you are providing thank you gifts to your clients (if not, you should be), you can use the app as a surprise thank you gift. If you have any volume at all, the cost per app you create is not significant and has a high perceived value to your client. The perfect kind of gift!
    • Using apps as a bonus item only available in your higher collections or when they achieve a certain spend level is another fabulous way of using MyPhotoApp to increase your bottom line. Having apps then turns into a prestige item for your better clients.
    • You can create apps for other businesses that you have, or want to have, a relationship with. For example, if you are a wedding photographer, create apps for wedding planners, venues, florists, etc. that you have a relationship with. Be their preferred vendor to work with!

    The potential uses are only limited by your imagination…

    Overview Of The Most Important Features of iCalamus

    Easiest Frame Editing

    Never has opening and closing of frames been as easy as it is in iCalamus. Each object has a tiny triangle in the upper left. A click on it opens the object and makes the content editable.

    Another click, and it’s closed again. This way we save the Object Selection Tool and you save a lot of time.

    This means you use an intuitive approach to frame content without having to change tools first.


    Virtual Copies

    “I want to print a dozen copies of this business card on a sheet. But what if I want to change something?”

    No big deal. iCalamus offers virtual copies. When you copy a frame virtually, it will then behave exactly like the source frame which it was copied from. Don’t think about Parent & Children relationships here. There is nothing like that for virtual copies. When you change one of them, you change them all at once. No fumbling.

    This means fast production and care of documents.

    Watch the demo about Virtual Copies.


    Easiest Vector Text Editing

    “Text is text. Period! Right?”

    It doesn’t have to be. In iCalamus, you can convert text into vector graphics at any time and edit the graphics afterwards. Even a few mouse clicks change a simply written word into a logo or a graphic very quickly.

    This means formal freedom in the creative process, down to a single vector point.

    Update web pages in your document

    “Stop, stop, stop … Are you telling me that I can place web pages in my doc?”

    Yes. Just do it. No big deal. – OK… No big deal with iCalamus.

    Open dialog, enter URL, import page. But the best of all: you can update the web page in your document at any time with a single mouse click. Can you imagine what people will do with this?

    Open and insert URL

    This means new options for documentation and content layout.


    Live Masking

    “I’ve heard about the Live Masking in iCalamus. What the heck is that for?”

    Masking means to use e.g. just a portion of an image, without destroying the original image data. Rectangles? Everybody can do those…

    Masks become exciting when you can choose a free shape for them. In iCalamus, each vector object can be used as a mask.

    It’s even more exciting, when you use multiple masks at once. iCalamus offers fascinating mask effects. You can change them at any time – easily. See the changes immediately in your document, in real-time, live!

    This means saving time on masking and more juice for your own creativity.

    Transparencies

    “And what about transparencies? Can I use transparies? What for?”

    Anything goes!

    Images, PDF content, text, lines, frames, colors, gradients – simply Anything and Everything.

    From nothing to absolutely opaque.

    More questions?


    Create Text Wrap Paths With Tracer

    “Masking? Understood. But how do I get really cool masks?”

    In iCalamus, you can create professional vector masks from images which bring alon transparency informations (in their alpha channel). The Content Inspector offers the function ‘Create opacity based outline’.

    Create opacity based outline

    That doesn’t only work with images, but also with PDFs!

    This means efficient working in just one application – iCalamus.


    Edit Frames, Objects, Vector Points at the same time

    “Frames, objects, vector points??? I can’t make a point on this!”

    iCalamus is easy. Why shouldn’t you be allowed to edit objects or single vector points in an open frame and also work on other frames at the same time.

    In iCalamus, you can. No limitations…But you don’t have to.

    Edit everything at the same time.

    This means easy editing of all document elements.


    Transform Shadows

    “What’s this?”

    Who’s telling you that a shadow has to be gray? And do shadows always have to fall in the same direction?

    iCalamus offers you the freedom to set up shadows however you like.

    Shady sides.

    This means freedom on the shade side.


    Mirrorizing Text Shadows

    Who’s telling you that a text shadow must always fall from here to there, even equal for all text lines? And who’s telling you that a shadow has to be gray always?

    iCalamus lets you create text shadows as you like.


    Ingenious Inspectors

    “Will I get lost in the program’s user interface with so many functions?”

    No.

    The clever and practical inspector windows manage themselves if you don’t do it. If there is no more space left for opening all inspectors, the unused ones close themself again.

    And – the inspectors are smart. If some stuff is not required, it’s not shown or grayed out.

    The most diligent one is the Content Inspector.Like to take a look?

    This means you can concentrate on your work.


    Blend Modes for Frames

    “Blend Modes? This blows my mind! There’s a lot iCalamus can do – Is this something like Blind Modes?”

    No, keep cool. iCalamus supports all blend modes as supported by the PDF specification. This means you can define by a mouse click how two frames should be blended. Date structures keep totally untouched. You can’t damage anything.

    Think about printing a document area in inversed colors, creating color shifts or filter effects or simply fade out areas temporarily without having to erase or move frames.

    Normal
    ColorBurn

    Gives you the fastest possible results without a high learning curve in image editing.


    ICC Profile Support

    “What happens with images when I have assigned an ICC profile to them in Photoshop?”

    When you import images into iCalamus documents, all assigned ICC profiles are kept. These ICC profiles are considered not only in print output, but also in PDF output.

    (How should I visualize this? Kind of a Before-After image? Great before, great afterwards? No, not really.)

    This means secure productivity for you!


    LinkBack Support

    “What is LinkBack?”

    A link is a reference to another place. A backlink is a reference back to the source of an object. The LinkBack technology offers all the necessary steps to let a program like iCalamus, the publisher for Mac OS X, recognize when you have placed objects from a LinkBack supporting program like e.g. Barcody in a document. When you select such a barcode object, iCalamus “knows” that the object originates from Barcody and iCalamus can call Barcody for you, hand over the object to Barcody for editing and update the barcode object in the document immediately after you have saved changes to the object.

    Read more about editing LinkBack objects in iCalamus.
