Key Benefits

  • Free-Form Painting Tools - Choose from five easy-to-use painting tools, including paint brush, pencil, spray can, paint bucket and eraser, for increased painting flexibility.
  • Multiple Document Windows - View as many as nine documents at one time, so you can add images from multiple clip art files to your painting.
  • Shape Tools - Choose from five convenient shape tools - rectangle, rounded rectangle, oval, freehand and polygon - that let you easily create geometric objects.
  • Snapshot Screens - Take a snapshot to save your painting at any time. Edit areas that need improvement. Afterwards, apply the "magic eraser" to areas you'd like to restore to the original snapshot.
  • Special Effects - Invert or trace the edges of selected document areas. Use brush mirrors to create multiple images simultaneously.
  • Integration - Transfer images to word processors, desktop publishing programs and other applications, including MacWrite and FileMaker Pro. Use a digitizer to turn photographs into documents you can modify.
