AquaTint - Aqua-ize your graphics Pick of the Week

8 of 10
[0 to 10 lights; 10 = perfect!]
AquaTint is a small utility that lets you take any 32-bit alpha-channel image and apply a number of Aqua effects to it. You can change the hue, saturation, and brightness, as well as add drop shadows, scale the image, and control the alpha channel transparency. It's somewhat hard to describe in text, but very easy to see when you actually use the program, as the settings are all done with sliders. There's also an extensive online manual that explains exactly how to create the starting image in GraphicConverter.

As an example of what the program can do, the "lights" in the ratings bar in these Pick of the Week entries were both created in AquaTint. First the green light was created, and then a couple of sliders were moved to create the dimmed out gray button.

If you like the Aqua look and want to make it easy to create, check out AquaTint.
