Comic Life Magic is the new version of this popular tool to create comics that takes advantage of the features of Mac OS X Leopard. The concept behind Comic Life Magic is the same as that of its predecessor: providing a simple and easy to manage environment to build a comic book out of a series of pictures.
Not only has Comic Life Magic renewed the interface of this popular application, but it has included new styles and templates too. The top of the interface of the program displays a thumbnail of all the pages contained in the project; the preview of the templates is located at the top right; the central area is reserved for the layout of the comic.
Text boxes and balloons have also received a good face lift. That happens with the system that allows you to apply filter on images too.
Another interesting feature of Comic Life Magic, which recalls the famous ‘brushes’ from Adobe Photoshop, is the possibility of translating on pages with ‘spray’ a wide variety of reasons: some balloons, bubbles, a few clouds, flowers, hearts, and so on. In addition, each template includes a series of small graphics that you can drag and drop on any page.
