Artworks displayed in the slideshow above were designed with ImagePaint Production suite. Real wood veneers were cut with an Epilog Laser Mini 18 using ImagePaint's Automatic Production Laser Interface. Some images shown above represents the actual physical artworks, while others represent the finished designs still in digital format. With ImagePaint, you don't have to be an artist to take your design to a new dimension.
ImagePaint is an Adobe Illustrator plug-in designed to allow user to paint shapes with JPEG images. ImagePaint is the only software that can take JPEG images and organized them in Image Swatch Libraries similar to the way Illustrator Color Swatch Libraries are organized. Using ImagePaint plug-in, shapes can be painted with images from an Image Library by simply selecting the shapes and clicking on an image swatch.
ImagePaint Design Suite will change the way you design vector
arts. With its realtime interactive preview mode, you can create
unique artworks made of wood, marble, fabric, mother-of-pearl, or
any other textures, all at the same speed as designing with ordinary
ImagePaint Production Suite has all the features in the Design Suite with additional functions to transform a finished design into toolpaths that are optimized for your CNC machine (ex: a Laser Engraver). As a result, each and every cut will fit together perfectly to produce the highest quality product, in the shortest amount of time. Also, if you prefer to cut the material with a knife or with a scroll saw, ImagePaint can send the optimized toolpaths to an inkjet printer to mark the cut lines on the material. You won't find a similar software anywhere else, so don't be left behind, buy Image Paint now and take your creativity to a new height.
Included in the purchase of Image Paint Design or Image Paint Production, is a wooden image library consisting of over 1700 high quality wood textures in JPEG format. Also included in the Image Paint Production purchase is a free 1-on-1 lesson on how to setup Image Paint for production.

Before Downloading ArtBlue:
As of Version 2.5, ArtBlue comes with ArtTutor, a module containing 12 step-by-step tutorials running inside Illustrator with 37 movies, 45 images and 184 pages of hand-on lessons. You no longer need to read the user manuals to learn ArtBlue. ArtTutor can be found, after installing and running ArtBlue, on ArtMatrix panel. ArtTutor will reveal itself when the "Tutorials" item is selected from ArtMatrix Preset Look-up Box. After finishing the tutorials, then it's time to throw a little pixie dust into your designs with 19 "Factory's" Presets located in the same Look-up Box. So, with a bottle of wine... or two, sit back, relax and enjoy The Magic of ArtBlue.
ArtMatrix is a one-of-a-kind shape transformation engine that can convert a few shapes into many shapes, forming complex and stunning geometric sculptures. It was designed by a topnotch engineer with over 25 years of experience in electronics. Complex algorithms had to be invented, involving waveform generators of various types, all combined to transform basic shapes into spectacular and unpredictable shape formations.Images shown below and on the sidebar were created with ArtMatrix. From a single path, ArtMatrix creates many copies, applies color, opacity and arrange them according to user input parameters.
ArtShapes provides basic shape creation tools, and in concert with ArtTrack, establishes a complete and user friendly environment for creating, rotating, scaling, and reflecting shapes, while effortlessly snapping to another object, all in a single mouse stroke.
CustomShape imports shapes from Photoshop's custom shape files into Illustrator and used by ArtShapes tool to draw user created shapes. User created shapes created in Illustrator can also be exported to Photoshop .csh file for use by Photoshop's Custom Shape tool.Below is the CustomShape Control Panel. It comes with a complete Shape Manager to:
Art3D was designed to vastly improve the design and workflow for users working in 3D space using Illustrator's Perspective Grid.Art3D capabilities and features include:
The path-editing tool is the most used tool in Illustrator. Unfortunately, most Illustrator users use more than one path-editing tool. As a consequence, more time is spent switching between different tools and less time on editing the design. ArtEdit was developed with one objective - Minimize time spent on editing paths, aligning, reshaping paths and other objects, while providing many essential features to perform complex tasks that are not possible with other editing tools. ArtEdit contains 7 tools: Basic Editing, Scale, Relative, Rotate, Reflect, Copy-Paste-Replace and Corner Rounding tools. Each of the 7 Tools in ArtEdit contains cutting-edge functions, exclusively developed from ArtBlue technology.
ArtTrack ties it all together. All tools in ArtBlue rely on ArtTrack, instead of SmartGuide, to snap and align to other art objects. It contains basic art tracking functions, plus advanced functions unique only to ArtBlue. All functions are fully configurable by user to make art tracking a snap.
There are over 500 images from 160 wood species in this FREE wood texture library. I scanned in real wood veneers to create this library. Please feel free to download and use it for your own design. By downloading this library, you have agreed not to distribute the wood library to anyone.

ArtEdit unique Scale Tool allows objects to be scaled where they stand.
ArtEdit Rotate Tool allows objects to be rotated about multiple axis. And with a single mouse click, many path anchors are converted.
ArtEdit adds multiple anchors on the Rectangle, copies two segments from the Circle, and then paste-replaces the Rectangle's segments with the Circle's segments.
A fully user configurable art snapping and alignment engine for all tools in ArtBlue.
