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 
in progress.

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. 

More information, including tutorials, brush packs, gradient packs, an 
online gallery, and a full list of features, can be found at the Pocket 
Artist website: http://www.conduits.com/products/artist/.
