Playing around with images can be a blast. Yeah, designers really do have all the fun. And with the powerful graphics utility called Vectoraster 5 for Mac OS X, the fun (and fabulous images) keep on coming!

So what is Vectoraster 5? What can it do for you? Well, the program can take bitmap images and help turn them into vector-based raster patterns and halftones. Pretty nifty, huh?

Vectoraster 5 Highlights:

  • Create a Variety of Patterns
    You can generate vector graphics (or point or line raster patterns) based on your images.
  • Flexibility with Point Shapes
    You can choose from many different point shape types (circles, polygons, even imported custom shapes), and even use characters as point shapes from any installed font.
  • Customize Points
    Plenty of options let you really set things like raster point color, outline mode, point weight, as well as varying parameters like size, point aspect, or even shape contraction.
  • Multiple Patterns
    Choose from six different configurable raster pattern types such as alternating grid, radial, and varied density distribution.
  • Customizable Patterns
    Besides rotating and offsetting your raster pattern, you can apply four raster distortion modes: twist, bulge, wave, or split the pattern.
  • Output Almost Anywhere
    When you're finished with your image, you can copy the raster curves directly into most other vector graphics software. Options include vector export to EPS and PDF files, as well as Bitmap image export to JPEG, PNG, and TIFF files.
  • Save Time
    Use the batch processing feature to apply rasters directly to all of the images within a directory. You can even apply it to the frames of a Quicktime movie!


The powerful graphics utility tool regularly sells for $29, but for a few days only, you can purchase Vectoraster 5 for Mac OS X for just $14!
