A Mac version of hitherto Windows-only application, Bling! It has been made available.

Bling! It is specialised imaging software designed for the creation of effective product shots for use online in eBay auctions and other trading sites. The developers, Vertus, claim the software will easily perform such tasks as removing and replacing backgrounds, the introduction of drop shadows, highlights and logos and (naturally) image resizing. It identifies and traces the key edges within an image to extract the product from its background.

James Carr-Jones, president and CEO of Vertus said: "Bling! It enables even the most casual seller to optimize potential revenue and increase profits by making products truly stand out from the ever-growing crowd without the need to master Photoshop or other complicated imaging programs.”

The software costs $49.95.
