ArtRage is a painting package: PHOTO EDITOR

ArtRage is a painting package created to provide a realistic and fun simulation of using paint on a canvas, along with pens, pencils, crayons, and other tools.

with paint without the mess, and having fun in the process. You can paint your own image from a blank canvas to completed work, or load in a picture to trace and have the tools pick their colours for you as you paint over it.

It provides several drawing tools, including chalk, crayon, felt pen, pencil and oil paint, as well as a virtual palette knife and different canvas style to choose from.

It even comes with a virtual water glass to dip your paint brush... and can even load an image of your choice as use it as virtual trace paper for your painting.

The interface is nicely designed and provides maximum work space while keeping all tools and option easily accessible. You can use ArtRage with a mouse, but it works particularly well if you have a graphics tablet, or even a TabletPC.

The paintings can be saved or exported to JPG, BMP, PNG format.

You can run ArtRage on a normal Windows machine with a mouse, but it works particularly well if you have a graphics tablet.

Even better, running ArtRage on a TabletPC takes advantage of the unique interaction of pen and screen to produce a realistic painting feel.

ArtRage is all about playing

The product is free to use and has not time limitations. However some tools and features are only available in the full version, although it still allows unlimited loading, saving, printing etc.


photo editor supporting raw images

I've recently started taking raw images with an Olympus, which produces .orf files. When I return from a long shoot out in the country it's a real pain to open the files one at a time only to find that 80%+ aren't the quality I'm looking for. Basicaly, I'm looking to script in VB/VBA to open the files in PS7, and save them as jpeg, allowing me to go get a cup of tea and then return to watch a slideshow. Which would be followed by the deletion of a volume of files.

Any pointers gratefully received as I can't seem to find any reference to 'import' in the documentation, only 'open'.

I'm very happy to listen to any likely solutions - jpegs are embedded in some raw files, how do I know if they are in mine? How can I extract them if they are?


I've just started doing this myself too, but you should not need to import if PS7 can open the files. Automate 'open' for the whole folder of files and coversion to tif or jpg or whatever.

I use and olympus too sometimes, but do not use this setting - can you convert your capture format to a more usable format?


In between races I had a couple of the girls and my daughter run down some halls and took a couple pictures in front of a window with the heavy snow as a backdrop. After being repremanded for "flash photography" I had the flash on the camera off. We took a couple quick pics, and went back to the meet.

Now I get home and the girls are almost solid black in the photo due to the bright back light. If anyone thinks they can repair it better than I have been able to accomplish it would be appreciated. I could email you the original JPEG file, it also was not shot in raw. (Kurt resumes kicking himself)

I guess I should add that I have worked this in Elements adjusting the lighting and then running the unsharpmask filter. If there are other "tricks" please enlighten me.


Does Elements have the ability to adjust Levels? Moving the leftmost slider to the right such that it touches the histogram, and then moving the centermost slider slightly to the left results in brightening shadows without overwhelming the photo highlights. A still easier, and infinitely more adjustable, way is a PS plugin from The Plugin Site known as Light Machine. It makes corrections such as this a snap because you can control highlights and shadows independent of one another.
