Mac OS X Apps/Updates

AKVIS has announced AKVIS Retoucher 8 for Mac OS X (10.6 and higher). fThe new version offers an image retouching mode for correcting small defects, the History Brush tool, new setting options, support for 4k and 5k displays, and other important changes.

AKVIS Retoucher is a tool for photo restoration and photo retouching. The software heals damaged parts of a photo, removes scratches, stains, and other defects. 

AKVIS Retoucher is available as a standalone application and as a plugin filter for Adobe Photoshop and other image editors. The Home version costs $87 for new users. A demo is available for download. Version 8 is a free upgrade for buyers of AKVIS Retoucher who bought or upgraded the license during the last 12 months.

Feingeist Software has upgraded MailButler, the Apple Mail add-on for Mac OS X. Version 6407 introduces a Unsubscribe feature. Now, if a MailButler user doesn't want to receive a newsletter anymore, he or she just needs to press the unsubscribe button, which appears at the top of the email. MailButler will automatically unsubscribe the user from that newsletter.

MailButler (v6407) is free, and is available worldwide exclusively through the Feingeist Software website. Two service plans are offered. The free plan allows access to all features for one user, 30-plus actions per month, and one email avatar.
