Feature Overview

Multi-Window Mode

multi-window mode

The screenshot above demonstrates a basic arrangement of windows that can be used effectively.

  1. The Main Toolbox: Contains a set of icon buttons used to select tools. By default, it also contains the foreground and background colours. You can add brush, pattern, gradient and active image icons.
  2. Tool options: Docked below the main Toolbox is a Tool Options dialog, showing options for the currently selected tool (in this case, the Move tool).
  3. An image window: Each image opened is displayed in a separate window. Many images can be open at the same time, limited by only the system resources. The image window holds the Menu of the main commands (File, Edit, Select...), which you can also get by right-clicking on the window.
  4. Layers Dialog: This is the Layers, Channels, Paths, Undo History dock. When the Layers tab is open it shows the layer structure of the currently active image, and allows it to be manipulated in a variety of ways. Users find it indispensable to have the Layers dialog available at all times.
  5. Brushes/Patterns/Gradients: This docked dialog shows the dialogs (tabs) for managing brushes, patterns and gradients.

This is a minimal setup that you can of course customize to suit your exact needs. There are over a dozen other types of dialogs available for various purposes.


Customizable Interface

Each task requires a different environment so you can customize the view and behaviour the way you like it. Starting from the widget theme, allowing you to change colours, widget spacings and icon sizes to custom tool sets in the toolbox. The interface is modulized into so called docks, allowing you to stack them into tabs or keep them open in their own window. Pressing the tab key will toggle them hidden. Fullscreen mode allowing you to not only preview your artwork but also do editing work while using the most of your screen estate.

Photo Enhancement

Numerous digital photo imperfections can be easily compensated for. Fix perspective distortion caused by lens tilt simply choosing the corrective mode in the transform tools. Eliminate lens' barrel distortion and vignetting with a powerful filter but a simple interface.

Digital Retouching

Need advanced photo retouching options? We got it covered! Get rid of unneeded details using the clone tool, or touch up minor details easily with the new healing tool. With the perspective clone tool, it's not difficult to clone objects with perspective in mind just as easily as with the orthogonal clone.


Hardware Support

Unique support for various input devices included as standard. Pressure and tilt sensitive tablets are supported, along with a wide range of USB or MIDI controllers. You can bind often-used actions to device events such as rotating a USB wheel or moving a MIDI controller's slider. Change the size, angle or opacity of a brush while you paint, bind your favourite scripts to buttons. Speed up your workflow!
