[prMac.com] Palo Alto, California - Indeeo today announced the immediate availability of iDraw 2.3, a major update to the powerful Mac graphic design and illustration application.
iDraw 2.3 features the unique ability to import layered Adobe Photoshop PSD files, preserving vector paths and layer style effects as editable objects, effectively converting Photoshop files that use vector shape layers into fully editable iDraw documents. The 2.3 update also adds new vector path editing and dimensioning tools, ColorSync color management, smart image masking, angle gradients, and a variety of vibrant new blending modes.
"We're very excited about the many new features in iDraw 2.3," said Adrian Diaconu of Indeeo, "The newly added Photoshop compatibility will be a great feature for many designers, allowing them to import design resources from various websites and use iDraw as part of a workflow with other applications."
iDraw 2.3 has also been optimized for incredibly fast performance with a new OpenGL-based drawing engine that brings significantly faster rendering of complex projects. Multi-threaded drawing ensures lag-free scrolling and zooming when working with very large designs. With faster drawing, editing, loading, saving, and importing, every part of the application has been tweaked for performance.
