What's New in Snappy 4.0?
SnapPad is one of the biggest innovations in Snappy
4.0. Basically, it is a filmstrip-like window that
displays picons of all your snapped and processed
SnapPad makes it easy to change and compare
modifications of image attributes. Your pictures are
right there at your fingertips. Just click on a
picon and edit it as you wish. The new image is
generated and displayed in the SnapPad with all the
others. It’s a super-quick reference tool, too. When
you shut down SnapPad your pictures aren’t lost and
you don’t have to save them, either. SnapPad
remembers your pictures and loads them the next time
you open it up.
When you put Snappy to work snapping pictures of
everything in sight, your hard drive will be
absolutely stuffed with images before you know it!
If you’re like everybody else, after a while they’ll
wind up scattered all over your hard drive. So how
will you find that one picture of Grandma from last
summer when you can’t remember where the heck you
put it? With Picture Explorer of course!
Just launch the Search function in Picture Explorer
and it goes to work searching your system for all of
your pictures. Once it’s found them all, it displays
them as picons (picture icons) in a central location
for easy browsing and selection.
So, now that you’ve got the tools to capture and
catalog your Snappy images, wouldn't it be nice if
you had some way to put them into their own slide
shows, presentations, or demos? You’ve got just that
Performer is a fun, easy-to-use, drag-and-drop Gizmo
that lets you use your own pictures, music, or voice
to make any kind of slide show or presentation you
want. To get you started, we’ve included special
effects, music and sound clips, and a whole library
of art. The interface is intuitive and easy to use.
Performer has even been used to create
nationally-aired tv commercials!
This is a new function we are really excited about
adding to Snappy. Now you can rotate your snapped
images using predefined settings, or perform custom
rotations with the new Horizon Bar. This great
innovation lets you choose the exact amount of
rotation to add to any picture. There's no
guessing—just place the Horizon Bar on the image and
line it up with whatever it is you want to be
perfectly horizontal. Press the Process button and
it’s done. Snappy rotates the image precisely into
the alignment you choose.
“Free-Form” Cropping Tool
With earlier versions of Snappy you were limited to
proportional aspect ratio cropping. In other words,
you could only crop images into smaller versions of
the same shape. Not with Snappy 4.0! We’ve added a
free-form cropping tool to the Picture Window. Now
you can crop an image to a rectangle of any
proportions you want.
More Supported Image Formats
We’ve added more popular image formats for your
convenience. Along with the formats already
supported by Snappy, version 4.0 allows you to save
your images in these formats:
Pictor PC Paint (PIC)
Macintosh Picture (PCT)
Windows Metafile (WMF)

Sun Raster (RAS)
Electric Image (IMG)
