MacZOT is offering ZeusDraw this weekend for $54 (40% off the regular price of $90).
“ZeusDraw is a vector drawing program with a fluid, graceful interface, great brushes and a host of other features.
Quartz and Cocoa let ZeusDraw show you what you are doing as you do it. When you move or rotate an object you see the object move or rotate, not its bounding box. When you draw with a brush you see a close approximation to the final brush stroke as you draw, not a dotted line that is filled in later.
ZeusDraw has a selection of vector brushes (Smooth Brush, Shaded Brush, Multi-Hair Brush), and it also has an object brush that allows you to paint with any piece of artwork – vector or bitmap.
ZeusDraw simplifies Bezier curves. With ZeusDraw’s path tools you enter control points in order along the path (more logical and intuitive, since the shape of the polygon made by the control points is a rough indicator of the shape of the curve). While adding points to a curve you can go back at any time and move any of the points that you have already entered, making it easy to obtain the shape you want.
ZeusDraw lets you edit gradients in place, on the the objects they are filling. The live editing lets you change the position, orientation and type of the gradient as well as the number, color and spacing of the gradient colors and see the results as you work. You can also drag and drop colors directly to the gradient.
The Color Chips palette shows all the colors currently used in the design. Changing the color of a chip changes all objects in the design that are that color. The Swatches palette lets you keep colors and gradients with your file, even if they are not currently being used.
Using ZeusDraw you enter text directly where you want it, without any â€œtext-boxâ€. The text can then be transformed (moved, scaled, rotated, skewed) and the transformed text can be edited in place with the text tool. The text can be turned into paths for further graphic modification.
In addition to working with normal full-color bitmaps (jpeg, tif, png, gif and bmp), ZeusDraw can use grayscale bitmaps as stencils. The resulting artwork can be re-colored in the same way as normal vector objects – either using the object inspector or by dropping a color chip on them. You can use images from clip art disks, like these frogs, or use bits of scanned texture to make interesting brushes. If you open a full color bitmap as a stencil, ZeusDraw will convert it to a stencil for you.
ZeusDrawâ€™s Duplicate Tool is used to place or stamp copies of your graphics. It can also be used to drag and drop copies of graphics that you select into other programs such as Mail, Pages and Keynote.
ZeusDraw has Snap to Grid, but it also has Snap to Point, Snap to Path for precision drawing, and Snap to Angle for drawing arcs and rotating objects.
ZeusDraw has a complete set of easily accessible viewing tools including a separate undo for views. You can zoom up to take a look at a detail and then easily return to your original view.
ZeusDraw also has a tablet and trackball mode that allows two handed operation when using a pressure sensitive tablet – the pen and tablet function as the pointer in the normal way while the trackball scrolls and the trackball buttons zoom in and out.”

“TuneUp is your music collection’s new best friend.
TuneUp was created for music lovers, by music lovers. All of us here are entrenched in music. We’re cranking tunes all day. We constantly argue about things like which Radiohead album is best, whether Michael Jackson or Prince would win in a fight, the only five albums we would have on a deserted island and who in the office does the best Running Man.
One thing we all agree on, however, is that our digital music collections were a mess as were our friends’. When we did some testing, we learned that almost everyone had the same problem we did. That’s why we created TuneUp.
We’ll take care of all of this for you automatically. We’re also the type of people who want all of our cover-art, don’t like missing concerts and spend hours online looking for YouTube videos, news, and merch from our favorite artists. We’ve taken care of that too. And there’s more to come…”
