VectorDesigner Adds Multi-Touch

raster image handling, filtering and color correction

Vector DesignerTweakerSoft has rolled out vectordesigner 1.4.6. Vectordesigner 1.4.6 now supports the new unibody MacBooks multi-touch trackpad for panning and zooming.

By leveraging the full capabilities of Quartz and CoreImage, VectorDesigner retains the feel of traditional drawing applications and features a wide assortment of tools, including smart shapes, rectangles, ovals, rounded rectangles, polygons, stars, bezier creation and editing, as well as raster to bezier conversion.

Combine shapes using unite, subtraction, xor and intersection boolean tools. Text can be fitted inside a shape or along a path preserving all the text editing capability of Mac OS X. All filters and composition may be applied non-destructively to shapes and images.
