What it is…

Bracketeer is a front-end GUI for Enfuse. Enfuse is a command-line freeware utility which uses multiple exposures of a scene (bracketed exposures) and merges them together to form a uniformly lit scene. It is similar to tonemapping with an HDR image except that no HDR image is ever created, and there is no ghosting. It works with any kind of bracketed image set, not just panoramic equirectangular images. Bracketeer can even auto-align hand-held shots! The results are almost always much better than anything that can be achieved with Photoshop’s HDR Tone Mapping.

Bracketeer and PanoPreviewer use the same serial #. So, when you buy Bracketeer you also get a free copy of PanoPreviewer and vice versa.

Here is a great example of what Bracketeer can do. These images were shot hand-held at -2EV, 0EV, and +2EV:

Bracketeer was used to auto-align and enfuse the images to get this stunning result:

How to Use It…

  • Simply Drag & Drop your image files into the Bracketeer Window (can be almost any file format: jpeg, tiff, png, psd, and even camera RAW files).
  • Once the source images are loaded simply click the “Enfuse It!” button to make the magic happen!
  • Bracketeer always outputs a lossless TIFF file.
  • Technical Requirements

    Bracketeer is for Mac OS X 10.4 or later. It is a Universal Binary application, so it runs native on either a PowerPC or Intel based Mac.

    The window switcher that’s actually useful

    It’s also one of the more useful Witches you’ll encounter today ;-) — system requirements: Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later

    Why use Witch?

    Have you ever wanted to switch back and forth between windows that don’t belong to the same application? If so, Witch is for you.

    Sure, you can use Mac OS X’s Exposé to switch windows, but doing so can be very clumsy if you’re the keyboard-only type of user. And don’t all of these windows look just the same when they are scaled down?

    Witch lets you access all of your windows by pressing a shortcut and choosing from a clearly arranged list of window titles.

    But wait, there’s more…

    You can also…

    • Choose the sorting order of Witch’s windows list (application activity, window acticvity, etc.)
    • Directly access minimized windows without using your mouse
    • Close minimized windows without bringing them to the front first
    • Zoom, minimize/deminimize and close windows on the fly

    And best of all, Witch is incredibly easy to set up. Just assign a few keyboard shortcuts and start switching windows.

    Acess Windows via Keyboard

    Lastly, the reviews won’t exactly scare you away from this particular Witch…

    “Witch works great.”Marc Andreessen

    About IGG Software, LLC

    In 2003, programmer Ian Gillespie launched IGG Software, LLC, in Southern California. He had one simple goal: to develop intuitive, yet powerful, personal and small business applications for Mac OS X.

    Gillespie created his inaugural application, AtWork, while working on a doctorate in botany. The program took root as a tool by which Gillespie could track the hours he spent conducting rare and endangered plant surveys. But after posting the application online and selling his first copy on the first day (for $6.00), a business was born. AtWork evolved into iWork, which in turn was relaunched as iBiz in early 2005. Today, iBiz 3 is the simplest and best tool for Mac-based free-lancers, consultants and contract workers to track and invoice billable hours.

    As iBiz developed, IGG also began to offer ever more powerful versions of iBank, the company’s flagship application for managing personal finances and small business accounts. iBank 2 emerged in January 2006 after being completely rewritten to take advantage of Mac OS 10.4, Tiger. Similarly, Gillespie introduced iBank 3 at Macworld 2008. This latest version, developed strictly for OS 10.5, was named a runner-up for Best Leopard Application in the 2007 Apple Design Awards. With major new features such as direct account downloads, iPhone sync, interactive graphs and loan management, iBank has become the leading money management application created exclusively for Mac users.

    Since 2004, IGG Software has been based in Putney, Vermont, a vibrant small community in a state known for its environmentalism. As such, IGG is committed to supporting sustainable energy, obtaining all of its electricity from renewable sources through Green Mountain Power’s “Greener Mountain Power” program.

    Forms To Go – Form To Email Script Generator

    Normally: $30.00

    ZOT Price: $18.00

    Click to MacZOT Try Now  

    The swiss army knife for web developers

    There were two designers, both had similar training, worked in similar markets, and enjoyed their work. Each new project commanded their whole energy and focus and they received lots of praise for their results. One of the two, however, earned 25% more for each project because she brought money-saving tools to her projects that increased the value perceived by her employer.

    "Forms To Go is one of those tools that takes a skilled person and simply makes them worth more."

    Forms To Go is a form to email script generator for HTML forms in PHP, ASP and Perl.

    Even if you’re not a designer, most people who have a web site will need a tool like this. If you’ve ever wanted to add HTML forms to your web site, but didn’t know the first thing about programming the form to email script to process the HTML form, now you can! With Forms To Go you can quickly and easily create scripts in PHP, ASP and Perl to process your HTML forms, and send all the form’s field values via email or save them in a text file on your server. And you don’t need to have any knowledge of programming. It doesn’t get much easier than this!

    Validating field values is a snap!

    The script you create with Forms To Go will send all the field values by email. Prior to this, it will check that the user has filled all values correctly (e.g. a correct email address), or at least 2 characters in the name field. Return the valitation messages in the same HTML form.

    More than sending field values thru email!

    With Forms To Go your scripts can handle many tasks like dumping the field values to a MySQL database, or send a confirmation email with file attachments. You can also enhance the email you’ll receive with a beatiful formatted HTML email.

    What about file attachments?

    You can accept file uploads from your users. Just create the correct field in the form and order Forms To Go to create a script that will accept the file upload and send it attached to the email you will receive. Easy as 1-2-3.

    You don’t even need to be at your computer for your user to receive a confirmation email!

    The user submitting the form can have an immediate answer in his mailbox as an auto reply. This email can also have an attached file, such as a documentation manual or a brochure.

    What about spam filterting?

    It’s true, recently, a new form of spam has been targeting HTML forms by triggering the scripts that process them, and overloading the mailbox of the HTML form’s owner. Forms To Go script is secure against this kind of attack. If some words are included in any field value, use the Stop Word Filter option by selecting the forbidden words in order to limit the script execution. Also, Forms To Go filters form hijacking and email injection which have been the most malicious attacks performed by hackers on HTML forms.

    The ultimate package for web designers!

    This offer is for the PHP edition of Forms To Go. Create unlimited numbers of scripts in PHP with all the features and get free updates for 1 year. You can also buy the ASP or Perl edition with this offer.

    Any Mac with MacOS X 10.3 and higher. Forms To Go is Universal Binary.

    Unsolicited comments from our website

    “You are AWSOME! I am a graphic designer for print media with very little knowledge of programming or website design.

    I purchased your program today and created PHP script to use with an html form (created in Dreamweaver) that required the information to be sent to several emails and include a user attached photo.

    I had a little problem at first (I even sent you a help request) but it was because of my server, GoDaddy, required Linux based hosting to use PHP. Once I changed that — your script WORKED PEFECTLY!!!!

    I know I will use your program a lot in the future and I look forward to updates. THANKS for making it easy for a lay person to setup.


    Just want to thank you for your continuing support of this "must have" product. I can’t tell you how many hours this has saved me in developing scripts for my client’s sites. The UI works well, and the generated code (PHP in my case) is clean and easy to tweak for special projects. I’ve been using Forms To Go forever, and have recommended it to other developers countless times.
