by David Nagel
Senior Producer

Deneba Software is expanding its Canvas graphics software line to include Canvas 7 SE for Macintosh and Windows. The standard edition is a scaled-down version of Canvas 7 targeted toward small businesses. It includes 500 fonts and 10,000 clip-art images.

High-end features of Canvas 7 have been removed in the SE version, such as color separations, spot color and matching system support, color calibration, technical file formats (DXF, DWG, CGM, etc.), technical illustration tools and advanced typographic controls. However, illustration features, SpriteLayer transparency tools, SpriteEffect filter capabilities, Web design features, image editing tools and page layout features are retained. Other features retained include:

  • Basic geometric shapes, bezier curves, freehand tool, curve editor;
  • Horizontal and vertical dimensional tools;
  • Text on a path and wrap-around text;
  • EasyShapes;
  • Local color printing (only);
  • Blend Objects, Extrude, Envelope and Shadow effects;
  • Image effects and image correction.

For Macintosh, the software requires Mac OS 8.5 or later, a PowerPC processor, 32 MB of application RAM and 80 MB hard disk space.

Canvas 7 SE is available now for $85 via Deneba's Web site or $99.95 in a boxed retail version. For more information, visit http://www.deneba.com.
