Picturesque is an application designed to make Web images look better by using reflections, soft glows, shadows and delicate curves. Thumbnails can be created as well as transparency effects so that pictures look good on any background. Effects are achieved, according to Acqualia Software, in less time that it takes to launch Photoshop.

Picturesque has been previously localized to German, French, Italian, Dutch, Norwegian and Chinese. It won the Apple Design Award at WWDC 2007 for Best Mac OS X Student Product.

Picturesque 1.0.3 is a Universal Application and requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later. It comes with a free trial period and is priced at US$19.50.
