Get Backup 2.2.5 – Review

On October 27, 2009, in Macintosh, Review, by Steve Hammond

Get backup 2.2.5

Company: Belight software
Price: $39,95 MSRP, with online discounts available
http://www.belightsoft.com

As its name imply, Get Backup is a backup program. But it also serves a dual role as a sync application. Basically, the interface is devised in two for those two purposes. There is an icon at the top right that looks like a two way arrow that can be used to go from one mode to the other. The window then “waves” throughout a 3D animation to reveal the second mode. Each options can also be reached via the application menu bar in the “Backup” menu or the “Synchronize” one. I will examine each one separately as they are very unalike in terms of options and usage.

Do you want a cool logo for your business card? or a fancy button for your website? but can’t afford the high end programs like Photoshop or Illustrator to create them? or maybe you don’t have the skills to make one from scratch If so ArtText 2 by BeLight Software allows you to do just that for a lot less money ($39.95).

ArtText allows you to make a logo, button for your website, funky text designs and more with a few clicks of the mouse. Once you have those parts of the design done you can apply numerous textures, patterns, and even make the design have a 3D look to it.  the amount of materials you can apply to your design for a dimensional look is impressive. From glass to metal to “artistic” you’ll find something that works for you.

Just because the name implies a Text/Font program there are more than fonts in ArtText 2. If you don’t consider yourself artistic there are over 200 pre-made designs that you can start with.  Pick a design, change the text or color or materials, save, and you’re done.

Art Text

Price: 29.95

Art Text (AT) is an application you can use to create high quality headings, logos, icons, web banners and more. The program allows you to create modified text and vector shapes into fancy graphics you can use on a web site, in brochures, flyers, banners, even business cards.

Art Text looks like a simple application, and it is, I just wish The Belight people had provided some documentation with it.

The main window contains many creative elements:

Business Card Composer 2.3
Review

On November 2, 2004, in Macintosh, Review, by Russ Walkowich

Business Card Composer 2.3
Company: BeLight Software

Price: $48.95 US (CD version) $39.95 US (Download version)

http://www.belightsoft.com

Once upon a time, if you wanted business cards, you went to a print shop and ordered either five hundred or a thousand and then came back in a week to pick them up. Five hundred would cost $25 and a thousand for $45. And then for the next few years, whenever you changed phone numbers or were promoted or moved to a different section, you would just scratch out the old information and pen in the new stuff. (I still have half a box from when I first ordered business cards in 1986!)
