For the iPad and iPhone
Intaglio Sketchpad is a full featured drawing application designed for the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, based on Intaglio. It provides a full set of drawing tools and capabilities re-imagined for the multi-touch environment.
Reuse and Share Your Work
Improvements to the drag-and-drop library make it easier than ever to reuse the graphic elements you’ve already created and share them with others. Other improvements make it easier to modify these shared elements giving you a great deal of flexibility and improving productivity.
Our distribution partners at Softpress Systems have graciously added an Intaglio section to their user forum. This is the ideal place for Intaglio users of all kinds ask questions, request new features and share their experiences. Softpress is the publisher of the web design applications Freeway Pro and Freeway Express. Combined with Intaglio both of these applications make it easy to create graphically rich web sites.
Intaglio now runs natively on both PowerPC and Intel versions. The Universal version requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 and QuickTime 7.0 or later for PowerPC or 10.4.7 or later for Intel.
Easy To Use Patterns
Intaglio now includes dozens of predefined patterns in two new toolbar menus. The predefined patterns are black and white, and you can easily colorize them with the new color controls in the pattern editor.
You can now use Intaglio for fullscreen slideshow presentations. This feature isn't meant to compete with dedicated presentation software like Keynote and PowerPoint®, but it's great for creating slides and presenting them with a single application. When importing ClarisDraw documents, any slideshow settings are now fully preserved.
Improved Bitmap Image Support
For Tiger, Intaglio now uses ImageIO for bitmap image import and export. This allows Intaglio to use new image file formats including better CMYK support and extended range images such as OpenEXR and Camera RAW. In addition, Intaglio now provides more options for PICT image export to older applications such as Microsoft Word.
SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics)
Intaglio can export drawings as SVG files and open basic SVG files as new drawings. This allows Intaglio to exchange graphics with other SVG enabled graphics applications such as web browsers and open source projects. SVG is a standard graphics format created by W3C, the organization that sets standards for the World Wide Web, and is being adopted by several web browsers as a way to embed scalable 2D graphics in web sites. Because SVG is a vector graphics format it is capable of providing graphics at whatever resolution the user needs.
CoreImage is an innovative graphics technology in Mac OS X 10.4 (i.e., Tiger) to use today's advanced graphics cards for image processing. Intaglio allows you to use CoreImage to create effects limited only by your graphics hardware and your imagination. CoreImage filters can be applied to any combination of Intaglio graphics such as line illustrations, text, and bitmap images. Any effect can be constructed from multiple sources and channels providing the capability to fully exploit CoreImage. All Intaglio effects are resolution independent and scriptable, plus the elements used to compose the effects (e.g., the text and lineart) remain editable.
