Chasys Draw IES is a suite of applications including a layer-based image editor with animation, icon editing support and super-resolution via image stacking (Chasys Draw IES Artist), a multi-threaded image file converter (Chasys Draw IES Converter), a fast image viewer (Chasys Draw IES Viewer) and a RAW camera file processor (Chasys Draw IES raw-Photo). The whole suite is UAC aware and is designed to take advantage of multi-core processors, touch-screens and pen-input devices.
Chasys Draw IES is built to adhere to three core principles, which I call the "three pillars" of Chasys Draw IES:
Character: No photoshop imitations here.
Performance: Fast, efficient and stable.
Innovation: New techniques and out-of-the-box thinking.
The adherence to these principles is the reason why it is said that once you go Chasys you will never go back.
The following changes have been made to Chasys Draw IES with the latest release:
Turn any black and white photo or drawing into a full-color photo using two new fx Brushes, Colorize Foto and Colorize Toon
