Phantasm CS plug-in ships
Astute Graphics today released Phantasm CS, offering full color adjustment control directly within Adobe Illustrator documents. Users can tweak values such as brightness, contrast, curves, hue, saturation, and levels. The plug-in is designed to tightly integrate into Adobe's vector design package, offering the ability to control all object types including simple vector shapes, other live Effects, and high resolution bitmaps. Users can fine-tune, match colors, and experiment with designs while receiving immediate visual feedback. Phantasm CS is available for $40, and requires Mac OS X 10.3 or later with Adobe Illustrator CS or CS2.
