MagicSquire 2.0 is superfast! Brings new features!

Posted by Anastasiy Safari on Tuesday Oct 10, 2017 Under Tools, Tips&tricks, brush organizer, photoshop

I finally updated MagicSquire to 2.0. Took around 6 months to deliver new speeded up engine that allows to change Thumbnail Size, brings New Horizontal Mode, PRO Mode to hide UI out of the way, add Shapes and all Tool Presets to groups, more!

WHAT’S NEW:
– New horizontal layout! First of a kind in Adobe Photoshop
– Scale Thumbnails with Scaling Slider. Make them tiny or make them huge!
– Support for Shapes and all Photoshop Tool Presets! Organize any Tool Presets in groups: Rectangle, Crop, Eyedropper, Custom Shape, Round Rectangle, Ellipse, etc. Any of them all of them!
– Recent Tool History list! Kept between Photoshop sessions
– Unique PRO Mode – hide all buttons and UI elements out of the way
– Superfast new engine rewritten from scratch – much faster UI and brush handling: create brushes faster, load .abr files faster, faster drag’n’drop and faster handling of very large collections (1000+ brushes)
– Large .abr files (4GB+) and file collections support
– Compact Mode improved on CC2017
– Various bug fixes
– Improved display of the circle on size-only brushes for newly created brushes
– Significantly improved drag’n’drop on CS6
– Proudly supports Photoshop CS5, CS5.5 CS6, CC, CC2014, CC2015, CC2017+

You can upgrade MagicSquire to v2.0 here

More digital art

Posted by Anastasiy Safari on Friday Mar 11, 2016 Under Adobe, Images, Subliminal, color mixer, color panel, color wheel, painting, photoshop

My blog full of photography slightly becomes a digital art blog. When I relax from building my panels (MagicPicker, the color wheel panel for Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator and MixColors, the color swatch group manager for Adobe Photoshop) I just draw.
