Welcome! I'm Jeff, a programmer with a keen interest in computer generated visuals. My intention is to create useful graphics tools that are also fun and entertaining to use. Each program providing an interactive interface between the creative, intuitive human mind and the awesome power of modern computers. My particular focus is to explore the intriguing possibilities of applying mathematical transformations to images.
Kaleider manipulates images
to create sometimes complex pictures of reflected portions of the screen.
It is a capable graphics tool for people who are interested in symmetry, tiling,
tessellation and mosaic patterns. Aside from any usefulness though,
Kaleider is really just entertaining and fascinating to watch while in
Automatic Effects mode. Kaleider actions can be captured to
Video, and the Scripting feature makes it possible to design and
refine performances of evolving Kaleider effects.
Liquib is another graphics
tool (or toy) that translates mathematics into visual imagery. It treats
an image as if it were a fluid, which can be distorted by various transformations,
creating liquid image, marbled paper and Droste type effects. Liquib
manipulations can be applied manually, or you can relax and be entertained by
Automatic Effects. Liquib display sequences can be captured
to Video, and actions can be Scripted to create choreographed
performances of dynamic art.
Phota provides useful tools for archiving and annotating your image collections into attractive, interactive photo albums. Images can be added very quickly with a Mass Load feature, optionally from encoded IPTC and/or EXIF data. Audio and video sequences can also be incorporated into Phota albums. A handy Photo Index provides a quick scan through all of the photos in an album, and Photo Search finds and lists photos that meet search criteria.
Album pages or individual photos can be viewed as a slide show, with various options, and optionally accompanied by music or audio narration. The dynamic Gallery feature exhibits album photos on the walls of 3D Gallery rooms in various styles. Explore can be activated to automatically stroll through Galleries, pausing to admire each image.
The Phota Screensaver and an interactive Phota Viewer can be freely distributed, so that your albums can be shared with family and friends. The free Phota Package Builder program can be used to create CD and Screensaver installation packages. A sample Phota Screensaver of flowers can also be downloaded for free.
boxod is a
collection of four intuitive, visually compelling puzzle games, each constructed
of 'boxes' stacked into cubes or pyramids. The 6 sides (faces)
of individual boxes can each show different colors and images. The games
involve manipulating boxes and levels to match colors and images on each side
of the overall cube or pyramid. These games are intended to be easy for
fairly young kids to learn, and yet provide enough challenge to interest people
of all ages.

Wutch is an unusual
card game that involves matching picture cards in various combinations to score
points. You (a mere Human) must play against two Computer opponents,
one on either side of you. Wutch is initially quite easy to learn,
with visual cues and all game actions controlled with just mouse clicks.
However, as you begin to master the intricacies of the game, it is continually
challenging (and fun!) to compete against your implacable Computer
enemies. The entire look and character of Wutch can be
altered by switching to a different Theme.
Aim high! Aspire to be included among the 10 most illustrious achievers in the entire history of the game by being inducted into the Ultimate Wutch High Hands Hall of Heroes!
