Layers 2 brings a Smudge Tool and More to Mobile Painting

November 17, 2009 in Entertainment (E)

[] Blacksburg, VA - today is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Layers 2.0 for the iPhone and iPod Touch! Layers is a powerful painting tool for the iPhone that allows you to draw on multiple layers - taking your mobile painting experience to the next level. Use up to five layers in your drawings and create a masterpiece with ten high-quality brushes, a full range of color and transparency, and full undo support. Then transfer your work to the desktop as a high-resolution Photoshop file with the layers intact! Version 2.0 is a major upgrade to Layers featuring a new smudge tool, a redesigned tool palette with live brush previews, and a revamped photo import panel!

A smudge tool has been in the works for months and is finally here! With customizable texture, pressure, and size, the smudge tool opens the door for tons of new painting styles. A redesigned tool palette allows you to choose from the paint brush, eraser, and smudge tool, and provides a preview of the smudge effect. The new tool palette remembers your settings for each tool, so switching between the paint brush, eraser, and smudge tool is easy. An improved color picker also stores your recently used colors, making it painless to jump between multiple brush colors.

Layers 2.0 also features a revamped photo import panel allowing you to precisely adjust the position and size of photos you add to your drawing. A live preview shows you how the picture will look on top of your existing work - so photo positioning is perfect every time. Version 2.0 also includes a number of minor improvements and bug fixes. Please see the Layers web site for screenshots and additional feature information. Promotional codes and review copies are available upon request.
