 The premise of Flame Painter is that brushes simulate streaks of colored light - flames - and using this method, some amazing images can be created from scratch, or existing photos and images can be over painted.


 Version 2.0 extends the capability of Flame Painter in a large number of areas, some minor, but others notable indeed.


 Probably the most dramatic of these is the ability to now paint in vectors as against as only bitmaps, allowing an artist after painting a stroke, to edit the shape, or rescale and rotate it. In fact any of the parameters can be changed after the stroke has been made.


 The interface has also been heavily modified, with a new full screen mode available letting you move all the panels and panes out of the view.




The original Flame Painter has been improved on with the Pro version of Flame Painter 2 now having unlimited layers (the personal version has three) and drag and drop has been added to brush selection as well as to choosing an image to act as a layer to be painted over. The way to create gradients has also been updated; now simply chose the start and end color.


To smooth out "jaggies: a new method of anti-aliasing has been added, as have new painting modes - lighten, darken and normal.

There are version of Flame Painter 2.0 for both Windows and Mac. The personal version is US$29.95 and the Pro version is US$59.99. It can be obtained from
