Review of the new version of Ulysses III (1.2)

Review of the new version of Ulysses III (1.2)

The Soulmen have just announced Ulysses III 1.2, their latest update, and I was given the opportunity to test ride the new version of this brilliant text editor. It would be a little ridiculous to call 1.2 the “best update ever”, as others will follow, but it certainly is the best up to now.

The new version of Ulysses IIIadds “split & merge” for sheets, writing goals to sheets and groups, keyword…

Elgato Thunderbolt Dock; the review

Elgato Thunderbolt Dock; the review

Thunderbolt is everywhere these days, but a lot of people still have USB and even FireWire devices, while a lot of others would love to hook up a second HDMI monitor to their Mac. With my iMac mid-2011, I even lack USB 3.0 ports. With Elgato releasing yet another Thunderbolt Dock two weeks ago, I decided to give it a go. One day after installing the Elgato device, I discovered it’s far from “yet…

Astute Graphics Phantasm 3 for Adobe Illustrator

Astute Graphics Phantasm 3 for Adobe Illustrator

Phantasm was Astute Graphics’s first Illustrator plug-in. It gave Adobe Illustrator users the ability to work with colour settings the way they did in Photoshop. With curves working on transparency, Phantasm today isn’t obsolete. Far from it. The plug-in also gives you the ability to create vector halftones from an illustration both for printing and creative purposes, as well as ink and plate…

Personalised publishing: not for the faint of heart

Personalised publishing: not for the faint of heart

In marketing communications, personalised messages are considered to be among the most powerful methods for addressing an audience. In online publishing, personalised addressing commonly refers to the “Welcome, John” tagline you’ll find somewhere on the page after you’ve logged in. However, real personalised publishing, the kind that gives the visitor/reader the option of choosing what they want…

The Ninja Blade all-encompassing review

Ninja Blade comprehensive review

image

The Ninja Blade is Atomos’ newest available 10-bit HDMI recorder/monitor/player. The difference with its predecessor, the Ninja 2, is unbelievable. Everyone in the business already knows the screen isn’t just bigger but also has a higher resolution, but even if you know all that and have seen the images on the web, it still hits you in the face when you see it in real life. Other than that, the…

Astute Graphics Stylism brings back “flow” when working in Illustrator

Astute Graphics Stylism brings back “flow” when working in Illustrator

Stylism is a new Adobe Illustrator plug-in by Astute Graphics, which allows you to create Adobe’s Live Effects using a simple real-time annotation system. Adobe’s dialogue window driven system isn’t bad, but it stops your “flow”. Stylism, on the other hand, makes creating and changing Live Effects extremely easy and incredibly fast — and changes update in real time.
