Trinfinity Software has brought Collage to Mac OS X. Collage is an iTunes visualizer plugin that will search the Internet for imagery relating to the music you are playing, and then displays those images in a "never ending collage." The Mac OS X version of the software has been dubbed Collage X 1.0. From Trinfinity Software:
Last year, Trinfinity Software released Collage 1.0, which was received with great enthusiasm but many Mac users could not enjoy it because it was only available for Mac OS 9. By popular demand, Trinfinity Software is elated to now offer Collage to both Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X users.
One of the many spectacular features of iTunes is itis Visual Plugins. iTunes can display graphics on your screen, while music is playing, that move and change along with the music.
Collage X searches the Internet for images relating to the artist, track, and album that are playing. Collage X then displays a never ending collage of these images on your screen. The images are different for every song. You may see album covers, photos of performances, photos of band members, or just about anything.
Keep in mind that due to the nature of this software, it is very unpredictable. For some songs it may not find any images or perhaps only one image. Some of the images that are found may be obviously related to the song that is playing and some may seem to be completely unrelated (Collage X seems to work best with popular songs).
Collage X is not distributed with any images. Collage X downloads and displays images that are freely available to anyone via the Internet. Collage X deletes the image files from the useris hard drive after they have been viewed.
