Deneba Software released version 7 of the award winning design application, Canvas. The new version includes new features which Deneba calls SpriteEffects and SpriteLayers. According to Deneba:
SpriteEffects(tm) technology tops a list of over 150 new features and enhancements contained in this major upgrade. For the first time, graphics software users have the ability to apply unlimited image editing filters to any combination of objects - text, vectors or bitmaps - while retaining full edibility of the original object. In addition, the new version
provides cutting-edge web capabilities, such as highly optimized GIF/JPEG export, animated GIF features, direct dynamic HTML export, rollover buttons and built-in FTP capabilities. Enhanced vector drawing tools and innovative performance improvements also highlight the new Canvas 7.
"As soon my machine boots up, I open Canvas 7," says T. Lewis, syndicated cartoonist in print and on the web. "As a web tool, it is a conduit thorough which I pass everything. The new FTP feature is a great idea and it is very easy to use. It truly saves a lot of time and effort. The new JPEG and GIF interface has put to bed all the other apps and utilities that I have been using. It has excellent file compression. I'm impressed."
Canvas 7 is available for US$375 for the full, CD version. An electronic download version is available for US$129.95, and owners of previous versions can upgrade for US$99.95. You can find more information at the Deneba Software web site.
