tone Design has announced immediate availability of new versions of all seven applications included in Stone Studio, its flagship suite of applications. It also is shipping StampInStone 2.3, its PDF watermarking utility, and TrueBlue, its free TrueType to PS Type 1 font convertor. Stone Design has also extended its $300 introductory pricing through April 1, 2003.
This release features Create 11.0, Stone Design's drawing, page layout, and web page authoring application. Version 11.0 features full support for fuzzy drop shadows on any text, image or graphic, with the ability to finely control focus, blur, shadow darkness, offset and angle. It also now supports strikethrough, underline/strikethrough by word, right to left scripts, inter-paragraph spacing, full AppleScript execution from menus, access to the system AddressBook, zoom from command keys, and automatic layout of multiple pages of text.

PStill, which converts PostScript files to Portable Document Format (PDF) files, has added the ability to do automatic PDF workflow direct from any application's print panel and offers full support for creating large-tiled posters, manage preference sets as well as merge multiple PostScript and PDF files into a single PDF document.

Stone Design has also released a free plugin for iPhoto 2.0 that makes it easy to export iPhoto images to PhotoToWeb, giving users greater control over the appearance of web sites created from those images. Stone Design has also released StampInStone, a PDF watermarking and stamping application. StampInStone licenses are included at no charge with Stone Studio purchases from Stone Design?s online store.

You know I checked out the stone studio programs, but I honestly would rather pay more for the Adobe equivalents to the software, its just worth it to me.

i agree...adobe apps are just straight forward and more powerful from the looks and description of this program...
guess i'll have to find a friend who owns this program to truly test it out
