I contacted Frank Stearns, and he responded as follows:
"We are now shipping IXgen for Windows 95, NT, & 3.1. No Mac version at
this time."

You can visit his Web site at to read about
the product and download a demo.

Mac users should note Frank's response to my question about supporting the
Mac in the future:
"Really depends on how strong the demand is. We do have a number of
Mac requests for IXgen, but to date, not quite enough for us to
justify and support the port.
But, we'll put you down for a Mac vote".

Note: I have no financial or business interests in this product, but would
be interested in a Mac version. All you Mac supporters should take a look
and let Frank know if you are also interested.

BTW, does anyone know of the availability of a Mac graphics tool similar to
