Shop Pro and Corel Draw.
Using Photo/Graphic Edges is easy. The program features a common user interface design so that learning how to use one effect helps you better understand the others.
But don't let the ease of use fool you. PGE 6 is an advanced program with an infinite amount of variations to explore. The program is built around SmartLayers technology. If you have worked with layers in other programs, you will love the way ours work. Everything is dynamic so that when you click on a layer all of the controls for that layer and effect are loaded up automatically for you to adjust. The layers palette lets you turn on, off, clone, move and add new layers.
PGE 6 uses a non-destructive dynamic imaging architecture. What this means to you is that you can undo, redo and adjust as much as you like and your original image is never changed until you save out the file. You can combine effects together, transform and resize images as many times as you like and the quality never degrades.
There is no limit to what you can do with this advanced architecture.
BRUSH ON EFFECTS WHERE YOU WANT THEM
PGE 6 features powerful new brush on effects that allow you to interact with the effects to get exactly the look you are after. Whether you are brushing on edges, smudging, distorting, pushing, etching or burning on effects you are going to love the new interactive brush tools in PGE 6.
HELP ON DEMAND
PGE 6 lets you hold your mouse over a control for a few seconds and a floating window appears that contains detailed instructions about the control. This powerful feature gives you instant access to control information without the need to look in a manual or use a separate help system that takes you away from the task at hand.
