Opcoders has debuted GraphicDesignerToolbox 1.0, a new Mac image editor. The program handles a number of the tasks common to graphic design, such as logo creation, text insertion, photo alteration and texture generation. A particular emphasis is placed on art for web design, as components are provided for making buttons and icons.
The app supports both bitmap and vector composition, and relies on an unusual building-block motif, which allows simpler editing and the reuse of assets. Over 80 blocks are included by default. Mac OS X 10.4 is required, along with 1GB of RAM and a 64MB video card. A single-user license costs $40.
