Artlandia Updates to Adobe CS4
Artlandia is always up to date with Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop
The new Adobe Creative Suite is out and Artlandia is not to be left behind: all currently shipping Artlandia plug-ins are compatible with Adobe's newest Creative Suite so you can upgrade to the new CS4 right away and get your creative juices flowing.
Artlandia's best-selling pattern design plug-ins are also compatible with previous versions of the Creative Suite, and even some earlier versions of Illustrator and Photoshop. The list includes:
SymmetryWorks 4 greatly expands what you can do with replicas, one of the handiest and most powerful features of the plug-in. Replicas (live copies) are tremendously useful for creating all kinds of patterns.
You work with a replica through its handle, which is a simple bounding box that you can move, scale, rotate, and mirror. The plug-in remembers your transformation and automatically rebuilds a copy of the original art once you edit it. By adding replica copies, you can make your pattern as symmetric -- or asymmetric -- as you like. And you will still have only one original that needs to be edited when you are making changes.

Artlandia SymmetryShop 2 -- Adobe Photoshop companion
With SymmetryShop 2, smart objects (available in Photoshop CS2 and later versions) open up a cornucopia of powerful new ways to design patterns. Use any combination of layers as a motif, even one SymmetryShop pattern as a source for another. Add complex vector images, such as SymmetryWorks patterns created in Adobe Illustrator. Possibilities are indeed unlimited.
