Intaglio v3.0 adds tools

Purgatory Design has released Intaglio v3.0, featuring new capabilities and tools to the Mac drawing application. The new v3.0 features an improved drag-and-drop library for streamlined use of common drawing elements. It also adds editing within a group without destroying the group, scaling elements when resizing graphics and a Quick Look plug-in for use with Mac OS X 10.5. The new update adds a star/flower tool, paint textures and background colors for text blocks. It also now supports graphics hardware acceleration for Leopard users. The software costs $90 and works on Mac OS X 10.2 and higher, with some features requiring Mac OS X 10.3 and above.

Intaglio supports importing elements from old drawing technology. It can convert old drawings from ClarisDraw and MacDraw II/Pro to Quartz graphics to extend archived drawings elements for future use. It also supports current visual file-types (PDF, EPS, SVG) and bitmap files (JPG, TIFF, PNG), and can convert them into Editable Quartz Graphics. The software utilizes CoreImage, AppleScript and ColorSync. It also supports adding metadata to documents for Spotlight search support.

    The MacDraw of today :-)

    There are few softwares that are both simple and powerful. Intaglio is one of them.

    The fact this 3.0 update is free for previous users like me is just brilliant...
