Using Repligator you can quickly and easily applyspecial effects to your digital photos!

Simply open your image file in Repligator, and hit F7 a few times to see which of 100 possible effects Repligator suggests. Repligator is a stand-alone program, though the Pro version can also run as a plug-in for Paint Shop Pro and Photoshop.

Repligator is designed for people who want to quickly apply graphics effects to their images, and is a great accessory for both experienced and novice digital camera users. Simply open your original image in Repligator and select the effect to apply, for example, Roman Mosaic, Sepia or Old Photo. Alternatively let the Wizard do the selection and fine tune the results if you want.

Among the 10 new effects in this version are Captioned Photo, Lightening, Digital Cubism and Ragged Edges. Repligator has a command to create as many as 100 variations on your original image in one go. Simply hit the F12 key, then you can examine, save, discard and fine tune all the created images at your leisure.

Simplicity of use has been built into Repligator, and wizards are used extensively throughout the program. The Pro version has effect presets, so you can save effect settings for use on different images at some future date. The Pro version also has vector output for users of vector programs (for example Illustrator) who want to import Repligator created effects in PostScript form.

  • Immediate preview of the effect
