Color It! Version 4.0

"I can't think of a better program for learning how to create graphics on the Mac."
—Deke McClelland,
Macworld columnist and author

No longer must users jump between many different programs, or purchase a fistful of plug-ins to create powerful graphics optimized for print or web use—Color It! 4.0 contains everything needed in one simple, easy-to-use program. Color It! is an award-winning, fully-featured image editing program that opens a wide variety of file formats, offers 16 levels of undo, and supports pressure-sensitive tablets and Photoshop-compatible plug-ins for scanners and filters. A customizable tools palette, animated GIF and image map creation, clipping paths, levels, curves, CMYK four-color separations, and a bevy of built-in filters including ones to remove scratches, dust and red eye are just some of the powerful features. Ideal for smaller RAM configurations, Color It! runs in as little as 3 megabytes of RAM. Work with existing images and photographs, scan in new ones, or create original works of art from scratch. Easily manipulate and blend images in ways limited only by your imagination!

Color It! 4.0 requires a 68020 or higher CPU or any PowerPC Mac running Systems 7.0 to 9.2.2.

When running the "Install Color It! 4.0" installer app to begin the installation; Click down onto the "Easy Install" drop-down tab and select "Custom Install" as the method of installation. You can then choose either; both PowerPC & 680x0, or PowerPC, or 680x0 individually. Check the one you require and then check "Install Tutorial Images". Choose some location on your HD to install to, and click "Install" when ready.

Do not check the "Install Documentation" option.

Only choose the "Custom Install" option here, as there is an issue with the installer's included PDF documentation installation which will cause the install to fail, if you choose to commit to either the "Easy Install" or check "Install Documentation" in the Custom Install options.

I have located the actual PDF manual via the Web Archive, and it is included separately in with this install set's archive.
