PPC does not run Mac OS X 10.6... And it seems I can't run the app on 10.5, so it appears this is intel only.

I can't remember how I worked before I found opacity. It is simply genius! The possibility to use variables in the factories will give you a workflow you don't want to miss once you used it.
Even the latest version is from late 2009, it still works perfectly on ML, even the GUI may look a little bit outdated. I own many other tools with nice GUIs (e.g. Sketch) but those can't even be compared with this app. Once you understood how Opacity works, you can't live without it. I would call it "the essential tool for web, screen and UI designers".

Only one small thing I like to see improved: more factory locations (especially core FTP). Or release an API for other developers to write their own locations (using AppleScript, Shell script, ...).

This is a fantastic program- the factories and snapshots allow us to make a change to a background layer and then build a complete icon set in a few seconds.

takes too much performence.

The price seems to me a little too high.

Very very very slow on bigger images. I tried to create an image with 1000x1000 Pixels and adding just a rectangle with a gradient is hard to handle with the laggy interface.

Why is this so expensive? Is it really "that" special and worth the high cost over other available applications?

I'm loving the layout and "purpose-built" nature of the software, but I'm confused as to the options available with builds.

I believe a saw in the screenshots that Transmit by Panic Software was an option for FTP upload, though I was wondering if you were going to extend these upload features to other FTP utilities, such as Speed Download, or Fetch, etc.

Cheers!

Hi Jasontrauer. Factories allow you to build (or export) an image as one of many different format. The options in the Build popup menu let you send the exported image to another application. You can email or instant message the image to someone, or use FTP to upload the image. Currently, you can only use Transmit to upload images from factories, but I hope to add support for more programs in the future.
There are currently no troubleshooting comments. If you are experiencing a problem with this app, please post a comment.
