UPCToISBN is a small application that pretty much does what its namesake says: converts the UPC (Universal Product Code) from a book into it's equivalent ISBN (International Standard Book Number). It's most useful when used with a barcode scanner to easily catalog a number of books: UPCs converted are logged to a text view component for copying and pasting into a book cataloging program (such as Books or LIbrary). In addition, the converted UPCs can be logged to a text file to be used as import data and can use's database to determine the title of the book (useful in determining if you have the correct ISBN).

InstantShot! - 2.3

InstantShot!: screen capturing, the smart way.

Do you often use screenshot software and feel that something is missing? Don't you feel like they're not so efficient and that they are way too complicated? Tired of long menus? If you answered "yes" to one or more questions, InstantShot! is the software for you!

InstantShot!: the answer to your screencapturing troubles in just a few Kbytes.

What are the features of InstantShot! ?
InstantShot! offers classical screenshot functionality for capturing the whole screen, a portion of it or a window and also the option to make timed screenshots or to make delayed captures over time. You can also cover your wallpaper or the whole desktop to make the screenshots.

How does InstantShot! works?
InstantShot! creates an icon in the menu bar. Clicking on the icon, a menu will appear. Select the capture type from the menu (whole screen, a portion of screen, timed screenshot or multiple captures) or, if you want to change the save format, select the desired one from the submenus and then... capture!

Which image formats are supported?
InstantShot! can save images in Tiff, Jpg and Png format and to the clipoard so you can import the image directly in other applications.

What preferences can I change in InstantShot! ?
InstantShot! is highly customizable. For example you can choose: the path to save the captures to; a prefix for the saved images; the compression level for the Jpg's; whether to scale the images; the delay for a single timed capture or multiple captures; if InstantShot! should automatically start after login and if it should immediately start shooting multiple captures; whether to launch an application or a script on a generated image; the hotkeys.

Will InstantShot! occupy space on my desktop?
Absolutely not! InstantShot! doesn't appear in your dock or on your desktop!

In what languages is InstantShot! available?
The software is currently available in English, French, German, Italian, Japanese and Traditional Chinese. Contact us through our site if you'd like to contribute a localization!

What's new in this version:

* hotkeys
* postprocessing applications
* multiple screens' support
* timed/multiple shoot in a rectangle
* scale / constrain images
* bugfixes
* more...

dead.licious - 1.3

dead.licious is a tool for verifying that all of your bookmarks in your accounts are still valid and gives you the option of removing those dead links. Right now, the feature set is not as complete as I would like but I wanted to get this version out there to gauge interest in this kind of tool. Currently, this is what I'm looking to implement in the next version that includes new features:

* Support for 10.3.9 and maybe 10.2.8. E-mail me if you really, really want this tool for 10.3.9 and I'll see what I can do to expedite the process along (donations wouldn't hurt either).
* Faster checking of websites by checking several at once instead of one at a time.
* Keychain support so you don't have to type in your username and password each time.
* Determining which websites have been added since the last update and only checking those.
* Editing bookmark information and submitting the changes back to your account.

If you have any suggestions that you'd like to see added to this list, feel free to e-mail me and let me know.

What's new in this version:

Added Simpy as an alternative social bookmarking service to get account data from. Website bookmarks that are broken can now be "fixed."; the old bookmark is deleted and a new one with an updated URL is added. Finally figured out how to use the Keychain using code from Adam Gerson so now you can specify which account to automatically use when the application is launched.

Capture Me - 1.4

Capture Me is a flexible screen capture and recording utility for Mac OS X which features a floating capture window, several saving options, and resize ability.

To use the program, drag and resize the floating window to cover the area you want to capture. Then click in the window to capture the screenshot. You can resize it, copy it to the clipboard, and save it in a variety of formats and locations. Its behavior is customizable with respect to what happens after a capture. A newly added movie recording mode now allows up to a one minute long QuickTime movie (no sound) to be produced.

What advantage does Capture Me hold over the built in OS X screencapture facility? For some tasks, the answer is simple - there is none - the built in screen shot is elegant and easy to use. However, there are occasions when it's nice to be able to choose what file format your capture saves in, copy it to the clipboard without holding down four keys at once, or resize it on the fly. It's also common to want to take successive shots of the exact same position on the screen without moving the capture region at all, or make all your captures the same size. These tasks are trivial with Capture Me, but difficult at best with the built in utilities. Another possible use is as a floating capture pad - see the comment on our web page for an example of one user who does this.

What's new in this version:

* [new feature] Now has a simple movie capture mode which can record and save a QuickTime movie (no sound) using the MPEG-4 codec.

OsiriX - 2.7

OsiriX is an image processing software dedicated to DICOM images produced by medical equipment (MRI, CT, PET, PET-CT, ...) and confocal microscopy (LSM and BioRAD-PIC format). It can also read many other file formats: TIFF (8,16, 32 bits), JPEG, PDF, AVI, MPEG and Quicktime. It is fully compliant with the DICOM standard for image comunication and image file formats. OsiriX is able to receive images transferred by DICOM communication protocol from any PACS or medical imaging modality (STORE SCP - Service Class Provider, STORE SCU - Service Class User, and Query/Retrieve) .

OsiriX has been specifically designed for navigation and visualization of multimodality and multidimensional images: 2D Viewer, 3D Viewer, 4D Viewer (3D series with temporal dimension, for example: Cardiac-CT) and 5D Viewer (3D series with temporal and functional dimensions, for example: Cardiac-PET-CT). The 3D Viewer offers all modern rendering modes: Multiplanar reconstruction (MPR), Surface Rendering, Volume Rendering and Maximum Intensity Projection (MIP). All these modes support 4D data and are able to produce image fusion between two different series (for example: PET-CT).

Osirix is at the same time a DICOM PACS workstation for medical imaging and an image processing software for medical research (radiology and nuclear imaging), functional imaging, 3D imaging, confocal microscopy and molecular imaging.
