Secure Image Pro is now available for Mac OS
ArtistScope today released
Secure Image Pro for Mac OS users.
Mac users no longer need a PC to process their image encryptions
for use on the web.
Secure Image Pro is a security applet specially designed for
images. Unlike normal applets, the image paths and source
file locations are not given in the applet's parameters (html
view). Recommended as exemplary image protection for photographers
and advertising professionals, Pro uses Java 1 encryption
to support Mac as well as PC visitors.
The protection options available in the software include domain
lock, targeted hyperlink on the image, and several display
options, status messages, picture frames, batch file import
and processing and multi-registry for use on several domains.
Instead of placing a normal image onto the html page, the
image is first encrypted for insertion into a viewer. It is
the applet viewer that sits on the page replacing the image.
The encrypted image is unusable unless displayed from its
viewer. It is only the encrypted images that are uploaded
to the server, so the master images are safe from all users
and viewers, including webmasters.
Secure Image can be used to protect images when displayed
on a web page online, or even when sending the page by email.
Notwithstanding the usual considerations of transmitting attachments
via email, there are no limitations to the file size of the
image displayed. When a visitor downloads the first protected
image from your site, the Java support files (12k) are also
downloaded but are served from cache for the next image.
Secure Image Pro for Mac OS program installs its own Java
VM to ensure compatibility across platforms.
A free evaluation copy can be downloaded from
ArtistScope for assurance before registration. To use Pro on the Internet
it must be registered to a web site to enable the domain locking
features of the images produced.
