Hey guys! Iszy here. I know it has been forever since my last post but my day (and night and weekend) job has been kicking my butt for the last few months. I’m finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel and figured I would let you know that I am actually coming back.
I have recently freed myself of Adobe products and have not had the time to learn my Photoshop and Illustrator replacement apps. For the Photoshop portion of my production pipeline, I will be using Pixelmator www.pixelmator.com
It’s available in the Mac App Store http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/pixelmator/id407963104?mt=12 for $29.99 US. As I use it more, I’ll put together a review, but for now I think it will meet my needs.
My replacement for Illustrator is Intaglio from Purgatory Design http://www.purgatorydesign.com/Intaglio/
Intaglio is available int he Mac App Store http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/intaglio/id417852764?mt=12 for $89.99 US. At this stage, I’ve not cracked the surface of the capabilities of Intaglio but it seems like a suitable replacement for Illustrator. Mind you I’m not a Illustrator power-user.
Now that I have these two apps, I’ll be able to resume publishing of my Cartwheels webcomic, and a few other projects that I’ll be announcing soon.
