Canvas 7 SE

At a Glance
  • Deneba Systems Canvas 7 SE

In the market for graphics software but hesitant to spend hundreds of dollars? Deneba Systems has just the thing: Canvas 7 SE, a stripped-down version of the company's integrated graphics package (see Reviews, March 2000). Like its older sibling, Canvas 7 SE packs a lot of power into a flexible, unified interface that lets you easily mix vector and bitmap graphics in a single document, though the sheer number of features may baffle novices. This version lacks high-end features such as color separation and calibration, but Deneba has wisely left in Canvas's excellent SpriteEffects technology, which makes complex layering and special effects a snap.
