Conduits Technologies, Inc. Releases Pocket Artist 1.2 for
TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA, April 19, 2000 -- Conduits Technologies, Inc.
announced today the release of Pocket Artist 1.2 for Pocket PC.
Pocket Artist is a drawing and image manipulation program for
the Windows powered devices.
Pocket Artist 1.2 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 (JPG, GIF, and BMP), and work may be saved into JPG and
This latest release sports an image browser when the user
opens a file. The image browser helps digital camera users by
providing thumbnail images of files in a directory, since most
digital cameras simply enumerate the filenames numerically instead
of having descriptive titles. This helps with the opening of
images into Pocket Artist: the user is presented with a preview
of the picture.
Pocket Artist 1.2 provides tools such as the texture brush
for advanced drawing. The texture brush tool loads in any texture
image, using it to paint on the 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 a paper.
The painting tools can operate in a "sketch mode". By enabling
this mode and setting a drawing tool to a low opacity, Pocket
Artist simulates drawing with a pencil or charcoal. A stroke
of the stylus begins light (as normal), however as one draws over
the same area, the image becomes increasingly darker. The final
result mirrors a pencil shaded canvas.
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.
A recent file list is also available for easy access to works
Pocket Artist 1.2 is available as a commercial demo from
