Astral Blossom 2.2 screen saver for Mac OS X
released by Imaja

Berkeley, California — September 24, 2009: Imaja announces an exciting update of Astral Blossom™ 2.2, a Mac OS X screen saver.

Astral Blossom is a screen saver for Mac OS X that features a constantly changing colorful display of luminous, geometric, kaleidoscopic, psychedelic, generative art. Multiple sets of mathematically generated ‘flower petals’ are rendered dynamically with beautiful transparent color combinations generated by Astral Blossom's internal color synthesizer.

New Astral Blossom 2.2 features

  • Color Themes offer a wide range of styles of color for different moods. Color Themes can be randomized for surprising effects.
  • The new Speed control lets you select relaxing slow speeds through exciting high speeds, a significant factor in the overall feel of the animation.
  • Added compatibility with Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard), as well as Mac OS X 10.5, 10.4 and 10.4.

Imaja's Greg Jalbert, the creator of Astral Blossom, enthusiastically relates, “Astral Blossom 2.2 is an evolutionary artistic expression of meditative and enthralling beauty. The new color themes were inspired by my earlier software creations and continue to surprise me with their organic and electric luminosity. The speed control expands the range of rhythmic feelings expressed by the animated geometry. I hope you'll enjoy these digital mandalas as much as I do. Thanks to the geniuses at Apple for making the inviting canvas of an iMac screen.”

Astral Blossom 2.2 is available for $9.95 from Imaja. Upgrades are $4.95.

Astral Blossom is a Staff Pick on the Apple Downloads web site.
