Ambient Design today announced that its realistic art painting software ArtRage Studio Pro 3.5 has won Professional Photographer magazine’s prestigious “Hot One” Award for Best New Gear. ArtRage Studio Pro 3.5 lets you become a true digital artist by letting you digitally “paint,” just as you would in a traditional art studio. ArtRage Studio Pro 3.5 and ArtRage for iPhone and iPad will be demoed at Macworld 2012 in San Francisco this week, January 26-28 at the Nomad Brush Booth # 455, ArtRage for iPhone and iPad will be shown with the Nomad Brush.
At the ArtRage Suite #3020 at the Intercontinental Hotel (888 Howard St.), ArtRage Studio Pro will be shown working together with ArtRage for iPhone and iPad across Mac, Windows and iOS platforms.
“As one of the photo industry’s biggest and most respected equipment competitions, the Hot One Awards represent the best new gear as chosen by a panel of independent professional photographers. This year’s winners are a collection of innovative new products from a group of companies performing at the top of their game,” said Jeff Kent, Hot One Editor, Professional Photographer magazine.
“ArtRage Studio Pro version 3.5 provides the experience of painting digitally on a computer canvas with oil paints that smear and blend, and with watercolors that flow together into wet gradations. Improvements in v3.5 include the ability to record and playback paint strokes, faster speed, scripting, content sharing and enhanced color blending tools. The user interface has also been augmented to streamline workflow,” said Professional Photographer.
