Just bought a copy whilst it was on offer to help support the developer. This isn't exactly what I need just yet, but I hope that it will come in later versions.

Being able to import a reference image and use layers would be extremely beneficial to use this "toy" in a production environment as most uses for this type of effect in graphic design and illustration would not just use this effect exclusively.

Being able to scroll around the image whilst holding down the space bar would also be nice.

I hope we will see these features in a future update.

Well, as easy as this makes life, I'm not prepared to use an application that will contact remote servers even when the software isn't running. MU App Search kept popping up in my Little Snitch warning box and no amount of preference tweaking in the Macupdate Desktop app seems to prevent this.

No other piece of software on my system has to do this and I'd prefer a way to turn this off, easily and transparently.

Whilst the feedback and willingness to help by the developer is admirable, unless a feature allowing the user to control the software's network access (which is several times an hour) is implemented, I cannot see myself supporting Macupdate after the 6 month's Bundle subscription is up.

I'm really not sure how contacting the devs by email is going to help. The feature to control frequency of software updates is either there, or it isn't.

Well, I took the plunge and bought this when it was reduced to $9.99. Now I'm wishing that I had held back and tested the limited demo more throughly.

It's ability to connect to my Mac (Snow Leopard) through the firewall is completely non-existent. Even when adding all the apps that the software uses (digging inside package contents and manually adding all apps and dependencies) and allowing access it refuses to play ball.

That was last night, before I bought the software. Now it's legit, it refuses to connect with firewall on or off. I can see the server on my Xbox, but it then says there is no media of any kind.

I also uses Little Snitch and I can see what is trying to connect when and where. However, even with this disabled I still cannot my Xbox to the server that Playback is supposed to create. Bizarrely, Little Snitch reads that "Playback Server" is trying to connect to my iPod Touch, which is also on the local network.

The main reason I bought this software is because it allows proper nested folders, unlike Connect360, which hasn't been updated in donkey's years. However at least that worked.

The idea of opening up my computer to the entire world just to run a media server on my local network is just anathema to me.

Seems to work ok on Leopard 10.5.5. It may be PPC only, but seems fine on my Intel iMac.

Shame the developer has disappeared. I would like to support an app like this.
