This program gives you an environment within which you can manipulate the hi-resolution graphics to produce complex pictures. I understand that a medium-resolution package using multi-colour mode is also in the pipeline.

The package is of such complexity that I can only briefly run through its capabilities.

The package is menu-driven and provides routines for the drawing of lines, points, circles, ellipses, and the use of rubber banding. There is a range of commands for the moving and manipulation of areas of the graphics screen. The concept of filling areas has been extended to include the use of user-defined textures so drawing a brick wall trivial.

Two styles of drawing cursor are provided, both controlled by joystick or cursor keys. If the detail of your sketch is difficult to see, a magnification mode can zoom in on an area. Once your masterpiece is complete, you can save it on disc or tape. Full instructions are given to enable you to use the pictures in your own programs.

Overall, a highly professional product which is both simple to use and extremely versatile.
