Product Description

Amazon.com

Part funhouse, part gender blender, part graphics tool, SuperGoo is laugh-out-loud fun. The premise is simple: feed in a photo or start with Abe Lincoln (the default picture), distort and switch features based on SuperGoo's tools, and out the other side comes a "modified" portrait. Recharge your creative batteries or make kids crack up with silly results.

SuperGoo has two function panels: the Face Palette and the Goo Room. The Face Palette, where clothes, glasses, and features are added and positioned, yields the same kind of results as doodles done during study hall--elongated faces and off-kilter images. Users are given the option of switching between male and female characteristics for the faces, and a steady stream of additions are possible: handkerchiefs, glasses, or beard stubble, for example.

The Goo Room is the place where images get liquefied. While the menu used to save effects isn't very clear, the dials and switches involved with the manipulations are excellent. There are almost as many ways to undo the changes you've made, and the variances themselves are fantastic: "noise" adds ruddy bumps and subtle pixel switching, and "twirl" and "ripple " can pull hair from waves to mountains.

A simple set of concepts done well, SuperGoo provides ideas as well as images. It's an accessible entry into the feats--and fun--possible with digital graphic manipulation. --Jennifer Buckendorff

Never before could a powerful graphics program such as this cause a user to also burst into peals of laughter! It's really easy to use, too. All you have to do is load in a picture of you, a loved one, arch nemesis, etc., and have fun with all of the many FUNctions. Your image comes out the other side, made better by you. This is great for working out your mind muscles or just to get the kids off your back for a while.
SuperGoo has two main places you can work. One section is called the Goo Room and in it you can digitally liquify an image. Don't worry about making a mistake. It can easily be remedied with one of the many ways to UNDO an action. There are pretty interesting tools to be found here: twirl, ripple, noise; each of which can be used to totally funkify an image.
Face Palette is another section in which you can make your friends or other people go incog-Neato! Add many different facial features or even switch genders on an unsuspecting "loved" one.
SuperGoo is a great piece of software that will provide hours of fun and enjoyment for any member of the family, young or old. Why not see what YOU have locked up in your imagination and bulge those brain muscles for all to see?

3.0 out of 5 stars SuperGoo 1.5 July 21, 2002
I found it irritating that the brush and effects palettes could not be moved out of the way. They sit right on the picture when you're using them instead of staying off to the side or something. The reset only works for the most recent step - you can't undo multiple steps. It can be fun once you get the hang of it, but the directions could be better. I would recommend getting ScanSoft's PhotoFactory instead simply because you get two more programs plus the SuperGoo. It doesn't cost significantly more than the SuperGoo alone. "More bang for the buck".

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun Stuff March 12, 2002
This software is fun to play with but one needs the detailed manual to follow in order to use it. In my opinion, the instrution manual lacks good start up instructions. Once you get the hang of it, it is easy to use.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy it! May 9, 2014
An oldie, but a goody. Photoshop, to my knowledge, just can't DO these things! Some commercial photographers still use these for dog and cat product photos.

Well worth the $$$.

Update: 6/22/2014

My bad! This will not load on Windows 7. I got a new computer with Windows 7. I had been saving this for the new computer. It WILL load on XP, but not on W-7.

Fixya.com had a workaround that works, sort of. Install on XP. Copy the folder to the W-7 machine. Only, it doesn't work. I CAN invoke it from a shared folder on my XP machine across the network, but that means I can't use it on the road. If the folder is on my C: drive, it won't run.

If you have ME, 2000, or XP, it will work. If higher, no.

Looking forward to using it. I may just use it on my XP machine, and not on my W-7.

Update 6/24/2014

The Internet is wonderful. I found a feature in Windows 7 that did not exist in XP. In the folder you copied in to your W-7 machine, find the main .exe file for the application. If the application ran fine in, say, Windows XP, SP3, right click on the application, in this case, supergoo.exe. Select Properties. Select the Compatibility tab, then from the Compatibility Mode dropdown box, select Windows XP, SP3. Click OK.

An alarming thing will happen when you invoke the program. A warning box will pop up asking if you want to allow this program to make changes to your hard drive. Worry not! Click Yes. And it runs!

If you select Fusion, within Goo, you need to have the CD in the drive.

Kai's Super Goo was last compiled in 1999 by Scansoft. Scansoft bought Nuance.com in 2007. They became a company that supplies software B2B. They're not really interested in the individual.

4.0 out of 5 stars The strangest use for Super Goo you've ever heard of February 3, 2004
I've owned a copy of Super Goo for several years now. Some time back, I loaned it to my friend Tom Kraemer, along with my Macintosh computer. With them, he made a picture of a "girl." So far, so good.
The next day, though, he told me he was in love with the "girl" he had created using Super Goo. Yeah, it's weird, but that's Tom. Here's the whole story:
