Greetings Revolutionaries:

Tactile Media is proud to announce the availability of a new pair of layout
plugins for Revolution and MetaCard: tm|color and tm|gradient.

tm|color is a color-management plugin designed to enhance the way you add
color to stacks.  The stack provides 5 color models from which to apply
color to controls, along with hex values, and persistent color settings
which allow you to apply sets of color properties to objects at any time.
The plugin includes tools for retrieving color properties from selected
controls, notification of color properties that have been edited, and for
picking up color from anywhere on the screen.

The companion to tm|color is tm|gradient, a plugin that allows you to create
2-color gradient images, with variable translucency, written entirely in
Transcript.  The plugin allows you to use images, graphics and text fields
as source objects to create gradients, so you can create irregularly shaped
gradient images, widgets, and even gradient text.  Until Revolution is able
to create gradients natively, this is a helpful, if not speedy way to get
gradients into stacks now.

You can view a gallery stack that contains samples of gradient images built
with tm|gradient:

You can also review the QuickStart guide for tm|gradient:

And an example widget-building tutorial is available:

Both plugins require Revolution 2.6 or later.  A 600 mHz or better system is
recommended to run tm|gradient.

The plugins are available now via PayPal at US$18 for the set.  To order,
visit the Media section of our site -- http://www.tactilemedia.com.

Thanks for your continued support of our tools, and we look forward to
seeing what you create with them!
