Software Review:Micrografx Webtricity 2(Part 4)

Windows Draw and Conclusion Windows Draw is a simple vector-based drawing program that, on its own, competes with home/business template-type programs such as PrintShop and PrintArtist. However, it rounds out the total package nicely. While WebDeveloper.com readers should hardly need the "convert your creation to a Web page instantly" wizard, the 3D, text effects, and animated GIF features make it easy to turn your vector-based creations into Web-ready graphics as quickly as you can with Picture Publisher.

Conclusion

While relatively unusual these days, I noted a problematic bug in Micrografx' file save protocol. When used on an NTFS partition, saving files a few levels down from a top-level directory with a period character in the name would unaccountably create the file in the top-level directory using the name of that directory as the filename, rather than the one I specified. Professional graphic artists will probably be the most hesitant about Webtricity. Although Picture Publisher might not have every last feature of a tool such as Photoshop, it's equally true that Photoshop doesn't have everything in Picture Publisher, either. And when you add in Simply 3D, the value of this entire package becomes much greater. Webtricity's emphasis on simplicity and ease of use may not appeal to everyone. Some folks seem to relish working harder than necessary. For everyone else, Webtricity might just be the no-brainer of the year. If you're looking to create great graphics in little time, give it a whirl. This article first appeared in June, 1998.
