On a regular basis, Apple World Today posts a list of notable new apps or app updates that have been released. They may not necessarily be new, but they're popular and deserve mention. Here are today's picks.

macOS Apps/Updates

Zevrix Solutions has announced Graphic Inspector 2.2, a feature update to its quality control solution for images and vector files. 

The software solves the problem of quickly locating files with specific resolution, color, spot channels, fonts and other attributes. The app can also search metadata, report image compression, and save search criteria in workflow specific presets. Version 2.2 lets users select image editing app of their choice instead of opening files with default program.

Graphic Inspector can be purchased from the Zevrix website for $19.95. It’s free with purchase of PDF Checkpoint or InPreflight Pro for Adobe InDesign. A demo is available for download. The 2.2 update is free for users of previous versions. Graphic Inspector requires macOS 10.5 and higher.

AKVIS has released NatureArt 9.0 for macOS and Windows. It’s an update of the software for imitating natural phenomena on digital photos.

Version 9.0 provides better display capabilities by implementing a new interface with support for 4k and 5k displays. Additionally, the program offers full compatibility with Photoshop CC 2017.

On the Mac platform, NatureArt runs on macOS 10.7 and higher. The product is available as a standalone application and as a plug-in filter for image editors.

A NatureArt Home license sells for $72, a Deluxe license for $106, and a Business license for $189. One license key allows activating and using the software on two computers. A demo is available for download. Version 9.0 is a free upgrade for recent buyers, as well for those who bought “1 Year of Updates” during the last 12 month. Users whose license isn’t valid for the new version can get NatureArt 9.0 for $14.95.

Einstein's legacy has rolled out Deframe 2.1.1, a feature update to their video post-production utility for the Mac. 

The app provides a way to extract, re-purpose and re-use the images and segments within your video assets. The 2.1.1 update introduces a number of user interface refinements, instant import for greater interoperability with the Finder and enhanced support for high-resolution imaging.

Deframe 2.1.1 requires macOS 10.11 or higher and costs $19.99. It’s available at the Mac App Store.
