Summary
  • Altamira's $795 Composer is an intuitive image editor that combines many significant elements of standard programs while offering a new method for digital manipulation: dynamic, automatic access to the alpha channel, which is the 8 bits beyond 24-bit color in 32-bit graphics software. The technique allows users to manipulate photos anytime, even after another photo has been laid on top of it or after the file has been closed. Composer's one drawback is that there is no provision for 8 bit. Working and saving within an 8-bit format is impossible because the program runs in at least 32,000 colors. Multimedia programmers will require a program such as Photoshop to complete a downward transition from Composer's big color palette to 8 bit.
