Conduits Technologies, Inc. Releases Pocket Artist 2.0 for Pocket PC and
Pocket PC 2002
TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA, May 1, 2002 -- Conduits Technologies, Inc.
announced today the release of Pocket Artist 2.0 for Pocket PC and
Pocket PC 2002. Pocket Artist is a drawing and image manipulation
program for the Windows powered devices.
Pocket Artist 2.0 provides 24-bit color graphics editing on Windows CE
devices. The user interface is optimized for small screens while
retaining a full set of features, including support for digital camera
users. Pocket Artist supports opening graphics in a variety of formats
(PSD, JPG, GIF, and BMP), and work can be saved into PSD, JPG, or BMP
The version 2.0 release marks the first PSD-compatible product for
Pocket PC. PSD is the file format of the desktop image software, Adobe®
Photoshop®. With Pocket Artist 2.0, users can open, edit, and save PSD
image documents with their Pocket PC.
Version 2.0 also incorporates several new features into Pocket Artist.
Layer support allows for an image to be built up and composited via the
creation and manipulation of separate image layers, which can all have
different blending modes and opacity settings.
Drawing tools have been added and enhanced for version 2.0. A gradient
tool has been added, and support for the "GRD" gradient pack file format
is included. GRD files can be downloaded from the web and installed to
the mobile device. The paintbrush has been enhanced, with support for
anti-aliasing, spacing, and pluggable brushes. The "ABR" brush pack
file format has been added. As with gradient files, ABR files are
widely available on the web, and can be installed on the mobile device.
The new painting and brush facilities, combined with existing tools such
as the pattern and texture stamps, enable Pocket Artist to simulate
drawing with "natural media," such as charcoal, chalk, and crayon.
Other features of Pocket Artist 2.0 includes: an image browser,
selection tools, zooming, anti-aliased text drawing, quick shapes,
convolve, flip, rotation, image and canvas resizing, 17 blending modes,
undo, screen capture, desktop settings, blur, emboss, sharpen, and tool
opacity. A recent file list is also available for easy access to works
Pocket Artist 2.0 is available as a commercial demo from
www.conduits.com, where the user can download and evaluate the software
for 30 days.
Pocket Artist 2.0 is available for an introductory price of $49.95.
Existing customers of version 1.0 and 1.2 are eligible for a discounted
upgrade price of $19.95.
