prediction: ript will rock our worlds

I've been twitter pated with Bella Dia's inspiration collages for quite a while now, but I lack magazines. As much as I would love a subscription to Marie Claire Idees, I'm quite sure that the little French mag would get quite pouty at the prospect of crossing the Atlantic only to be strapped to a donkey for the last leg of its journey. C'est la vie.

Mais non! My life no longer has to be inspiration collage-less. CHECK THIS OUT! My cousin Luke just wrote a program that allows you to take any image on the web or your computer and digitally paste it onto a magazine collage!


It's called Ript. Click here to download the beta version. Read through "Quick start" to find out how easy it is to use. Even I could figure it out without Patrick, the resident computer know-it-all. I'm already seeing so many possibilities for this program - making inspiration pages for my own reference is the big one.

How cool is that?

I have been playing with this for an hour now!! Very cool! What a great way to make collage pages for the classroom, for events, or just month by month, which I think I will do, and let the children see the year progress in a little album in the library! Also - what a great way to make a calendar as a fundraising! I have already made a page for my mother, and my daughter, and for me -of Johnny Depp!! Thank you for sharing this!

@elleryolivia and @mrspilkington: As a Mac user myself, I would love to build a Mac version of Ript one day. If Ript is as successful as I hope it will be, I'll try to make it happen! -Luke (Meg's Cousin and part of the team that made Ript)

Luke, I'm a Mac user, but also use my son's PC. I've been finding your program to be as intuitive as a Mac program -- my highest compliments!!! Thank you so much!

I really do hope that you make a version for my Mac, too.
