AKVIS Chameleon is an efficient tool for photo collage creation. It eliminates the tedium of selecting an object with a complicated shape for pasting into a new background. The software has three modes: montage, chameleon, and blend. Montage mode fades the irrelevant parts of an object into the background. Chameleon mode adjusts the inserted object to the target image's color range and smooths the object's borders. Blend mode both adjusts the color range and smooths the object's borders and also makes the object semi-transparent.

Algoscore is a graphical environment for algorithmic composition, where music is constructed directly in an interactive graphical score. The result is output to MIDI and CSound. Graphical objects are placed in a timeline and connected together. Some objects are fully dependent on user data, while some are generative and reacts on input from other objects. It is highly customizable and extensible with the Nasal scripting language. It has a non-realtime perspective where the composer can relate freely to time and construct the composition outside of time. This makes AlgoScore more like a traditional sequencer in this regard, but a graphical algorithmic sequencer with powerful and flexible scripting capabilities.
Asymptote is a powerful descriptive 2D and 3D vector graphics language for technical drawing, inspired by MetaPost but with an improved C++-like syntax. It provides for figures the same high-quality level of typesetting that LaTeX does for scientific text. Asymptote is a programming language as opposed to just a graphics program. It can exploit the best features of script (command-driven) and graphical user interface (GUI) methods. High-level graphics commands are implemented in the language itself, allowing them to be easily tailored to specific applications.
