Bratislava, Slovakia – PixelCut today is proud to announce PaintCode 1.3, a full-featured vector drawing app that instantly generates Objective-C drawing code. Bridging the gap between programmers and graphic designers, PaintCode has quickly become one of the most popular developer tools on the Mac.
PaintCode 1.3 is the biggest update of PaintCode yet, bringing many new features and improvements.
One of the most requested features, the ability to import and use images in PaintCode drawings, is finally available. Users can import both Retina and non-Retina alternatives of their images, keeping the generated code resolution independent.
PaintCode 1.3 makes it possible to import layer graphics, paths, texts, groups and essential effects from Adobe Photoshop (PSD) documents. The PSD Import module is available as an in-app purchase for $19.99 USD.
The update also adds an entirely new color picker, replacing the system color picker, which was previously used by PaintCode. The new color picker is tightly integrated with PaintCode, making the design process much more convenient than before.
Other new features and improvements include iCloud support, improved SVG import, overhauled export functionality, various shape improvements, a new document format for better compatibility with 3rd party tools, numerous usability tweaks and bug fixes.
Pricing and Availability
PaintCode 1.3 is exclusively available on the Mac App Store as a free update to existing customers. New customers can purchase PaintCode for $99.99 USD. More information about PaintCode and a trial version can be found on the product website.
