Episode 62 - ImageFX for the Amiga Review and Tutorial

This week on 10 Minute Amiga Retro Cast I am reviewing the "New" release of ImageFX 4.5 - It is not really new, but it is finally available again! Come join me as I cover installation and go through some of the issues I found with the software. Bust rest assured this is worth every penny! Warm up your Amiga Computer and let's get to work editing photos on your Amiga. This software works great on any Amiga, but really flies on an A1200 or A4000 AGA Machine. It also handles RTG (Retargetable Graphics) quite well. It handles digitizers like the Newtek Digiview, Macrosystems V-Lab and even the Newtek Video Toaster quite well. Where do you buy this? I Wanna order a poster from Pixel Vixen! Or watch her videos here... My review video of the V-Lab capture card:

Episode 59 - Using PDF files on the Amiga

This week on 10MARC I am covering several clever ways to open up PDF files on your Amiga. Be aware that in order to really do this you will need an AGA Amiga or Vampirized A500/600, or a Big Box Amiga with an RTG card. There just is not a really good ECS PDF reader... Program information: Download Ghostscript here: Download EasyGS from Amigakit: Get GSGui .38 right here... Download RNOPDF for your RTG System: Want to try APDF for your ECS machine? Don't say I did not warn you... and don't forget that there are three files you need to download to use APDF. Take a peek at the instruction on the above link.
