Layers 1.3 Brings Multiple Canvas Sizes, Performance Improvements

September 24, 2009 in Entertainment (E)

[] Blacksburg, VA - today is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Layers 1.3 for the iPhone and iPod Touch! Built on the feedback of hundreds of mobile artists, Layers takes natural media painting to the next level - with layers! Add up to five layers to your drawings and create a masterpiece with ten high-quality brushes.

Version 1.3 brings even more flexibility to Layers, allowing you to choose between multiple canvas sizes when starting a drawing. A 3:2 rectangular canvas is now available in addition to the square canvas! When using the rectangular canvas, the drawing fills the screen completely for an immersive painting experience. The 3:2 canvas is 320 x 480px, similar to Brushes and Colors!, and the square canvas remains larger at 512x512px. Syncing with the Layers Desktop Viewer allows both types of drawings to be exported at much larger sizes.

Layers is the only painting app to export in the PSD file format, allowing you to move your drawings to the desktop with layers intact. Version 1.3 improves the performance of Photoshop export and fixes an important bug that caused the drawing canvas to become white if the iPhone ran out of memory while the brush palette or color picker were open.

Layers offers a balanced set of painting tools that will appeal to seasoned artists and doodlers alike. With ten high-quality brushes, an eyedropper, and an eraser - Layers provides the tools you need to create great art. It's intuitive interface has been built around the workflows of popular iPhone artists. Toolbars on the screen hide as you work and can be brought back with a simple flick gesture - so your tools are never far away. A full-screen color picker provides a full range of brush colors and transparency is fully supported throughout the app.

Layers takes undo and redo seriously. It keeps a 30-level undo stack as you work, and saves your undo history when you stop drawing - so it's easy to pick up where you left off! Every action is undoable, so you never get stuck covering a mistake.
