The company's primary product was Altamira Composer. This PC based software pioneered object-based drawing and image editing. Composer was the first to bring important tools such as anti-aliased effects, and image sprites, more commonly known as alpha channels to the desktop. The company was acquired by Microsoft in 1994. David Shantz of WildOutWest was responsible for branding, package design and the development of a series of image object libraries that were released along with the product.
