Showgirls2Life is cruel, especially if you see something like Showgirls which you might be thinking that should be on your Windows or OSX platform. Unfortunate, MorphOS is only available for PowerPC users. This is a cruel fact, but at the other side of all things. If you do have a PPC Mac which is compatible with MorphOS specifications. You are in good hands.

The software that comes with MorphOS, is actually quite good. Showgirls is one of them. The name might fool you a bit, as it’s not a poker game. It is a minimini Photoshop thing, that can do many things. For the free price, its quite good even.

Showgirls3With Showgirls you can see thru your pictures. You can add effects and text. You can make Albums with it and even made Slideshows. Showgirls also supports many picture formats, which makes it easy to see different pictures. It also allows to save in TIFF format, so you can save in a alpha format that TVPaint for Amiga supports native.

If there is anything negative that I can write about, is that the text part of it should be better. I would like to write things easier all over the picture. The text part is also a bit slow. Other parts of Showgirls is snappy, so I don’t get the slowness with text.

Showgirls4Anyway. Showgirls is easy to use and it is fast. I have reviewed it on MacMini G4, iBook G4 and PowerBook G4 with MorphOS 3.5 on it.

You find the app inside System partition, where you find Applications drawer.

Distrita Total Score: 9/10
+ Easy to use
+ Fast to use except for the text part

– Text part is slow
