 iDraw now imports/exports Adobe Photoshop! One thing graphic designers and illustrators have seriously wanted for their iPad iDraw is a way to build images from Adobe products into iDraw. Now, this major update to the powerful Mac graphic design and illustration application.


iDraw 2.3 features the unique ability to import layered Adobe Photoshop PSD files, preserving vector paths and layer style effects as editable objects, effectively converting Photoshop files that use vector shape layers into fully editable iDraw documents. The 2.3 update also adds new vector path editing and dimensioning tools, ColorSync color management, smart image masking, angle gradients, and a variety of vibrant new blending modes.
