ArtText 2.2 update
Danholt4mac has announced ArtText 2.2, an update to an app which edits textual graphics, headings and logos. Users are supplied with ready-made templates and shading tools, and can operate in the TIFF, JPEG, PDF, PNG and EPS formats. Version 2.2 delivers over 100 new templates, 19 new layer-blend modes, and improvements to its layering capabilities that include two new layer-merge options, subtract and insert.
Maintenance updates address problems with the "undo" function, resizing and rotating several layers, and export to GIF and JPEG. Performance of the layer-content panel has also been enhanced. ArtText is compatible with Mac OS X 10.4 or higher, and can be bought from the company website. An upgrade is $20, while a boxed copy is $64. The standard digital download is priced at $40.
