Features[edit]

Listed from the back of the box.

  • Complete selection of painting tools — Draw any shape you want, any way you want.
  • Turn any image into a brush. You can rotate, flip, shear, resize, smear, and shade it.
  • 7 levels of magnification — Paint in magnified mode if you want. Use variable zoom for detailed editing at the pixel level.
  • 3-D perspective — Move and rotate images in full 3-D, automatically.
  • Use color cycling and gradient fills to create great special effects.
  • Stencils — Protect your designs from the slip of the hand or a bad idea. A stencil masks your image so you can paint "behind" and "in front of" it.
  • Use the handy Move Dialog to animate brushes in full 3-D — automatically! Ideal for creating spinning titles for low-cost videos.
  • 37 multi-sized fonts[5]
