The text tool has always been Phixr’s most popular tool. When we added the shadow feature a while back, we got much positive feedback. Reason enough to think further.
The result are the following new features:
- Shadows, which previously looked kind of “harsh”, can now be blurred to look smoother.
- The text tool can now draw inner and outer bevels in order to give text as neat 3D look.
- In reaction to public demand, you can now select a background color. This is especially useful for text in front of very colorful backgrounds, where it was difficult to read.
- Better preview: The preview now works like in other tools, the selection can be changed inside the tool window. (We introduced this feature in fact a few weeks back already, but it was never mentioned in the blog.)
PS: Phixr now works with IE9 (platform preview). However, IE9 is still beta and buggy, so there might be one or the other problem.
