Like Thought has announced Opacity 1.3, a major update to their screen graphics editor. This update adds an improved Pen Tool, improved Text editing, and several other new features that makes Opacity even better for designers. Opacity Express 1.3 is also available with the core features of Opacity 1.3 at a more affordable price.

The new Pen Tool options in Opacity 1.3 makes it easy to draw any kind of shape. It's also now possible to fully edit a Pen vector after it has been created. A new Scissors Tool can be used to cut Pen vectors into multiple pieces. With the brand new Spiral Tool, it's easy for designers to create sophisticated images in Opacity. Strokes on vectors now have many new options as well. They can now be inside or outside of a path instead of just centered on it, and they can draw a gradient or image instead of just a solid color.

In Opacity, vectors can also now have more than one stroke, which allows for many interesting new graphical effects. It's also much easier to edit Text with an improved Text editing inspector that includes the text's font, color, style, alignment, kerning, and more. Finally, an improvement to the Opacity file format allows for smaller file sizes and faster saving of Opacity documents.

Opacity streamlines the image creation workflow by combining a great vector editor and pixel editor with native support for all the formats needed for screen graphics. Vectors make it easy to draw great looking graphics and easily make images ready for resolution independence. Opacity has traditional graphical features like layers, filters and transforms along with exclusive features including variables, templates, factories and much more. By leveraging the power of Core Animation and Quartz, Opacity combines all of the tools artists need to create beautiful images for icons, applications and the web.
