The graphics editor from Pixarra, TwistedBrush Open Studio, is the free version of a commercial photo editing and drawing application which aims to provide an easy way to apply a wide range of excellent effects to images for the artist within all of us.
This program is both powerful and sophisticated. Open Studio provides a wide range of filters and tools which apply artistic effects to either a blank canvas or an existing image. It includes a digital airbrush, soft brushes, bristle brush, pastel paints and a bunch of different pencils, pens and felt pens... many of which are not present in products like Adobe Photoshop.
While Pixarra's Open Studio product isn't necessarily easy-to-use when you first fire up the program, that fact is negated by the fact that this graphics application does many things that others can't, and with style. If you've never used a graphics editor like this before, using it might seem a little bit complicated, but after playing around with it those issues seem to fade away.
An interesting point of TwistedBrush Open Studio is that fact that you can save your current setup, with brushes and filters included, and load them up at another point in time. This is referenced as an "ArtSet" and certain does come in handy.
While TwistedBrush Open Studio includes a myriad of different effects, filters, brushes and tools, those with artistic inclinations should find this software handy and useful.
