This software is up to v3.0, so why do I still see v1.1 in MacUpdate?

PostworkShop 2 has just been released, and it is a major update. I was using it along during its beta period. The final release was worth the wait.

From the Developer's website:

Introducing major new benefits

- finely-detailed image rendering, with no image size limitations (when using the Pro Edition 64-bit Mac and Windows applications)

- manual painting (as a seamless, freestyle addition to the original auto-paint mode), with pressure sensitivity support for graphics tablets

- streamlined Pro Edition workflow, with an Adobe® Photoshop® plug-in supplementing the standalone application

- freehand drawing and painting, photo-sampled cloning, or retouching - all with an expanded set of custom brushes and full control of transparency

- multiple effect layers, with standard image blending modes and masking

- a multi-language GUI

- plus the debut of many, many more innovations and goodies!

UPDATE: The company just posted on their website that the update to version 2.0 has been delayed until early 2011, but due to the delay the update will be free for all registered users!

I bought the program via Macupdate. I thought the developer mentioned that you're not a real registered user if you bought it with a discount via Macupdate. I will see whether the update is free or not. Program works nice. Filters seem more artistic/refined then those of Filter Forge.

I bought this promo, because I was looking for software like this and am for a few weeks trying Filter Forge. I think I was too impulsive and regret it already. I get constant crashes when loading completely normal TIFF or PSD files (not even big ones), which work very well within PS and FilterForge. There's no help function and not real specs of supported files. I only get a internal error message and then the app quits. It does not really give me the impression of working with a "pro" piece of software.

Follow up on my previous comment: I contacted the developer, got a very quick response, but found out the problems are known with Mac users (quite relevant for MACpromo Iwould say) but are not going to be fixed in the 1.x version anymore. An upgrade to 2.x is not free. Be carefull, because you could buy a program that is not working for you is is also not going to be fixed.

Results of PSW are really more interesting than those of Alien Skin's Snap Art - and also very good and amazingly fast support. Thumbs up!

This is a program that deserves a place in any serious Mac artist's software collection. I find myself turning to it time and time again, and it never fails to deliver a broad variety styles. The Pro version provides infinite possibilities with the ability to edit styles and the components within each style.

The program does require some time investment to get the most out of it, but it really can deliver the goods. Stylized images come out with a very natural look. This program has managed to work its way into my daily work-flow, and now I don't know how I would get by without it!
