Conduits Technologies Inc. Releases Pocket Artist 1.1 for
TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA, December 10, 1999 -- Conduits Technologies, Inc.
announced today the release of Pocket Artist 1.1 for Windows CE.
Pocket Artist is a drawing and image manipulation program for
Palm-size PCs, Handheld PCs, and Handheld PCs (Professional Edition),
running Windows CE 2.11.
Pocket Artist 1.1 augments the features found in 1.0. Pocket Artist
provides 24-bit color graphics editing on Windows CE devices. Version
1.1 adds better Handheld PC support by implementing keyboard
shortcuts that provide one-press switching between drawing tools.
The new version also adds the capability to save images into the
JPG format. Quality settings for the JPG format are also supported.
Pocket Artist supports opening up graphics in a variety of formats
(JPG, GIF, and BMP formats are supported); work may be saved
into JPG as well as BMP formats.
Pocket Artist 1.1 provides a new tool and method for drawing.
The texture brush tool loads in any texture image and uses that
to draw on an image. The texture can also be used as a bump map --
for example, a paper texture can be used to imitate drawing with
a pencil on paper. The entire document can also be filled with
such a texture, simulating the look of the paper itself.
A new method for drawing, called Sketch Mode, is also new to
version 1.1. By enabling this mode and setting a drawing tool
to a low opacity, it simulates drawing with a pencil or charcoal,
where a stoke of the stylus starts out light (as normal) but as one
draws over the same area, the image gets darker and darker as if
shading with pencil and paper.
Other features of Pocket Artist include: selections, zooming,
anti-aliased text drawing, quick shapes, convolve, flip, rotation,
image and canvas resizing, over 12 blending modes, undo, screen
capture, desktop settings, blur, emboss, sharpen, and tool opacity.
In 1.1 a recent file list is also added for easy access to work
Pocket Artist 1.1 is available as a commercial demo from
http://www.conduits.com/ce/, where the user can download and evaluate
it unabridged for 30 days. Pocket Artist 1.1 is available for an
introductory price of $49.95. More information, including tutorials,
an online gallery, and a full list of features, can be found at the
Pocket Artist website at http://www.conduits.com/ce/artist/.
Conduits develops several commercial applications for Windows CE,
including Pocket Browser (an online web browser for P/PC) and
Pocket Player (an MP3 player for Windows CE). Conduits
also has several open source efforts, such as CoPilot for Palm-size PCs.
