Today we begin the first installment of a semi-regular feature, Resources from Around the Web. Here you’ll find some useful links to tutorials, new product announcements, and various cool stuff we’ve found in our journeys around the web. If you have a site you’d like to see featured here, send us an email: webmaster at digitalimagemagazine.com
In October, Sumo Paint 2.0 was released. (You can read our review of the previous version here.) In addition to the free online version of this Photoshop-like app, there’s now a downloadable Pro version for $19. This allows you to run Sumo locally on your machine, which should speed up responsiveness.
Rollip sounds like something you’d buy at Ikea, perhaps, but it’s actually a small online application for processing photos with various effects. It’s free, and has a range of Photoshop-like filters.
Photovisi is another free online app that looks like Rollip’s twin brother. As with Rollip, you upload images and process them. Photovisi then creates a neat photo collage for you. You can download it (to use as a screensaver, perhaps). Even cooler, you can print your collage on a variety of products through Zazzle. What a great idea!
Lightwyrm.com is a new digital art gallery and forum. They also offer some Painter and Photoshop tutorials.
Designermart offers some tutorials and resources for creating slick car illustrations, using Photoshop or 3D Studio Max.
This last item is just for fun. Machinarium is one of the best-looking, most well-designed, funniest and cleverest games I’ve ever played. Just check out the free demo and you’ll be hooked. An amazing achievement by a small group of developers and artists in the Czech Republic. $20.
