Computers are great at editing images, whether fixing a snapshot's ``red eye'' or creating a composite scene that never existed. But Kai's Power GOO for Windows or Macintosh from Meta Tools (805 566-6200) can be just plain fun.
The brainchild of Kai Krause, who is responsible for most of the special effects in high-end programs such as PhotoShop, the $50 Power GOO allows you or your children to fingerpaint with your pictures. Easy-to-use controls let you stretch, blur, and otherwise distort features. The program can record your creativity, then play the process back as an on-screen movie.
