Art Text is a layer-based design application for turning text into art and creating logos, application icons, web graphics, and buttons. With Art Text you will get professional results without the steep learning curve of Photoshop or Illustrator.
Some ideas for using Art Text:
● Catchy headings for promotional brochures and fliers.
● Unique titles for Keynote presentations
● Icon for an upcoming iPhone/iPad application
● Logo for a new business venture
● Web graphics for a client's site
360 Customizable Templates
The Template Gallery in Art Text comes packed with over 360 fully customizable templates for headings, buttons, icons, and logos. When in need of a quick solution, simply choose a template, shape it to your needs, and enjoy the results.
Work with Vector Graphics
The library of over 600 vector icons and shapes gives you a full palette for designing a company logo or graphic for the web. You can also import vector artwork in EPS format or use the powerful Vector Editor to create shapes from scratch.
Materials, Textures, and Fills
You can give design elements any look you want in Art Text. The collection of 250 materials give objects a realistic metal, glass, or plastic look that can easily be customized using the super easy parameters or the advanced Material Editor.
A texture is basically an image file that you can use to fill a shape or text. In addition to the 190 included textures, you can import your favorite images in the most widespread formats. This can be a great way to frame and add fun captions to beloved photos.
Art Text can also give letters and objects a radial or linear gradient fill with up to three colors. Add a gradient, stroke, and shadow to text to get some striking typography.
Bend and Warp Text
Bring text to life using 24 adjustable vector transformations and Bezier splines. Wrap text around objects or just give it a unique look that stands out.
What's New in Version 2.4.6
Resolved the problem with files not opening through the Open Recent Files menu.
I am amazed at how quicky and easily you can get some really cool effects with text. But….. I don't like the versioning control (can I please have 'save as' maybe I'm a dinosaur, but it would make me happier…) and I have had some issues with stability (as in this afternoon the program became unresponsive at least 4 or 5 times. I am running on a 2012 Macbook Pro i7 quad core) I also don't like the vector graphics part of the program and I really wish I could pull in an .svg file built in a more friendly vector program. I resorted to pulling in the graphic in as a .pdf it feels pretty clunky. However after fussing I have to say this looks pretty spiffy on screen and sample prints to my printer look pretty nice too. I haven't sent anything out yet for printing, but am hopeful that it will live up to it's wow factor. Nice program with some irritating quirks…..
Big fan, but fix bug that causes window to go above the menubar
I gave this 5 stars in a previous review. I’m a big fan of this app. I noticed a bug when running on my 13 inch Macbook pro. The window can be moved above the Menu Bar. If the window is stretched too wide, you can’t grab the edges to do window resizing. Please fix this bug so the window can’t be dragged above the menu bar so we can always resize the window. 3 stars on this version. I left my previous review below.
This App is great! I'm a dev and it makes mocking up a quality UI 100 times faster. Plenty of shapes, plenty of icons, plenty of templates to get started. Would recommend this App to anyone. Fantastic.
This is a entry-level, but yet very powerful graphics program. The templates includes with the program provide great ideas that can be modified to fit your particular need. Whether you are a novice or experienced graphic designor, this program will not disappoint. Thank you!
