On my Mac, iPhoto opens Photo CD files no probs.

Works nicely, pretty quick. Two suggestions:

1 - When the results load, show dates / time of files
2 - it doesn't always correctly identify the original and the dupe ie sometimes gets them the wrong way round, but you can't delete what it think is the original.

Other than that, good work.

I would pay for this app if it did two more things:

- could run in reverse

- could blend images to make the movie smoother ie replicate 'dragging the shutter'

by run in reverse I mean create a time lapse that runs backwards, not export a movie as still images :-)

Quite a good effort for a v1!

Feature requests:

- yaw, roll & pitch to manually correct for non-vertical verticals
- more projections eg spherical, planar
- drag and drop of images

For quick stitching could be what you need

Onyx is excellent, certainly good enough that Deeper is flattering close in appearance?

is it just me, or are Deeper and Onyx super similar?

I must be missing something... there are so many similar free services eg DropBox, SugarSync, Insynch, Box and others, and they work on Snow Leopard.

I'd like to like this, I really would. But

1 - the Dev's web site is missing the download link. From MacUpdate you are sent to http://www.rbcafe.com/Cryptix-download but there is no actual download available. I eventually found another web site to download it from

2 - its advertised as being v 1.0, but the latest is actually 0.91, when it does an online check.

3 - Cryptix does not download the new version. I get a 4kb DMG on the desktop that never does anything

4 - is it free, or not? The software asks for a key, and says in trial mode with no save.

5 - I tried the Steganography, but it blew up a 1.3MB JPG into a 14.3 MB file that Preview says is corrupt.

6 - Tried the section "unix" > "logs" but it shows var/log/system.log as empty, when it isn't

Many of the features here like DNS lookup etc are just what you can do anyway, so I'm really not seeing the value.

And since this is a trial version I cannot save any files when I've encrypted them.

Sorry

Hi, seems I cannot reply to your reply, so here's some thoughts:

1 - sure I understand
2 - I was unable to find v 1.0
3 - I can only report what happened... the DMG was downloaded by the Cryptix updater, not by my browser, since I couldn't find a download
7 - sure, I do, truly appreciate these efforts, and I offer constructive views.
8 - if you can let me have the link for v 1.0 I am very happy to try again.

Thanks!

I used CotVNC back in the day, before Apple's own Screen Sharing became useable. I'm back on CotVNC now because I can full screen VNC into a machine running 10.6. Why do I need to do this? I have ONE just ONE application I need that is PPC. I could upgrade at $$$ but why?

One very minor nit: the keyboard commands to go full screen / windowed on the current beta aren't sticky. But thats very minor.

If you do use CotVNC instead of ScreenSharing don't forget you eed to put a VNC password into the ScreenSharing Preference pane on the host machine.

For many people this will be a really convenient way to backup or export their data from Google.

Google themselves provide free ways to do it:

sorry, forgot to mention that if you want to move data the other way ie from desktop to Google, you can, with the very excellent CyberDuck.
