by Staff

Addiction Interactive has released Rainbow Painter 1.9.1, an update its painting and photo retouching application. Changes include new features and help system enhancements. According to Addiction Interactive:

Rainbow Painter is a unique painting and photo retouching program for the Macintosh. Any pictures you produce in the unregistered version are saved internally, and can be exported when you have registered.


  • Innovative design.
  • Unique user interface.
  • Let's you edit and view a picture in multiple windows simultaneously with individual magnifications and layer controls.
  • Up to 8 image layers with alpha/opacity channels.
  • More than 60 different effects and tools to use on your pictures.
  • Mask layer with special sets of tools and operations/effects.
  • Three different studios, where you may rearrange and add windows as you like.
  • Imports/exports Jpeg and PICT images, as well as a few other formats.

About the new version

  • The function 'Move Windowing' (the four arrow buttons in the top-right corner of the Picture Editor), now takes bigger steps if you hold down 'Alt' ('Option').
  • Quick Help extended to cover improvements.
  • Killed bugs: The layer operation 'Merge' gave the resulting layer incorrect alpha/opacity levels.

Rainbow Painter is US$20 shareware and you can find more information at Addiction Interactive's site.
