PixelPerfect, a Little Perfect AIR Tool

Posted by Jay | May 2, 2008 .

Among the various AIR applications that have caught my fancy, PixelPerfect stood out for its sleek implementation (pure AS3) and it usability. Essentially it is designed to let you measure the accurate size of entity’s of your desktop. This software lets you take the measure of objects in pixels. It comes with multiple resizable rulers and also in addition to it multiple windows to swap between projects or the same project. Since it can have many images or movie files in the same project.

It utilizes highlights, toning, colors, and transparent windows with chrome effects. Rulers and measures are always at the top so as to have complete control over creation of A movie or any video file. Resizing of rulers and windows can be done simply with the help of arrow keys and mouse wheel. To resize the rulers all you need to do is to use the shift+ arrow keys.  It even allows the transparency to be changed. In totality it provides complete dynamism in measuring objects on your desktop to most realistic levels.

Its source code is freely available for download and it provides an interesting reference point for understanding. It utilizes a sprite window as a visible background whose transparency is changed using the alpha property.  The code can be downloaded by visiting the following link: http://code.google.com/p/pixelperfect/
