VectorDesigner 1.0.0 ships
TweakerSoft has released the first version of VectorDesigner, its vector illustration program. The software is used for drawings, diagrams and other applications, and handles filtering, raster images and color correction. Features include a smart shape tool and numerous different default shapes, such as ovals, rounded rectangles and polygons. Also present is a bezier creation and editing tool, with raster-to-bezier conversion as an option.
Shapes can be combined using unite, subtraction, xor and intersection boolean tools. Filters and composition are applied non-destructively, and text can be set to fit inside a shape or along a well-defined path. A Flickr browser lets users search textures and images by tags or color, and insert them directly into a document. VectorDesigner is a Universal Binary for Mac OS X 10.4 or higher, with some functions being reserved for Mac OS X Leopard. Its price is $50.
