Deneba Software announced that it shipping of Canvas 8 for Microsoft Windows operating systems. Canvas is a cross-platform precision illustration application that also integrates photo editing, page layout, presentation, and Web graphics capabilities. Deneba says this extensive upgrade contains hundreds of enhancements and new features including: vector and raster Sequence recording, full Scripting support, manual and automatic Web Image Slicing, direct Flash (SWF) format export, and built-in support for DenebaShare - a secure, peer-to-peer graphics Exchange network. Other improvements in usability include expanded context-sensitive menus allow faster access to tools, filters, and effects. Single-letter customizable "hot keys" provide instant access to vector and image-editing tools. Palettes can be "docked" instantly using the new auto-dock button. Canvas 8 includes new image-editing features and filters. Complex Inks such as textures, vector symbols, hatches, and gradients can now be "painted" using the airbrush, marker, paintbrush, and paint bucket. New effect filters include Bevel, Crystallize, Oil Painting, Stained Glass, and Lens Flare. Canvas's Sprite technology allows all effects to be applied to any object in Canvas 8 - whether it is text, vector, or bitmap – while retaining its native editability. Canvas 8 for Windows is available for $399.95, with upgrades pricing ranging from $129.95 to $169.95. Owners of competitive programs can upgrade to Canvas 8 for $249.95. The Mac OS X and OS9 versions of Canvas 8 will ship later this summer.
