Art Text 3
Art Text 3 is a Mac application that lets you design and create text, logos, buttons, badges, banners, and anything you can think of, really, that involves text (go figure) or any of the numerous smart shapes or tools available. Of course, as the name would suggest, its main focus is text.
Art Text 3 gives you access to all your installed fonts and photos for importing as backgrounds or effects. In the image below I selected a photo and then used one of the Smart Shapes to create text from the image. The Smart Shapes and icons are vector images that can be rescaled without quality degradation and there is also a vector editor that provides further editing of the shape. I do wish there was a drag and drop capability for photos from a folder or from Photos as you have to open Photos in order to access your images. Particular 2D and 3D text effects will give you the option to install the text effect font if you are missing that font.
70+ ready made templates will help with logo design, produce beautiful word art, web elements and picture captions.
Customize 3D materials using 200+ textures, 140+ bump map surfaces, 80+ environment map textures.
100 gradient presets, 540+ textures and 140+ shading materials.
Apply soft-edged shadow or glow to 3D objects. Use optical effect tools to make background objects out of focus.
Adjustable shadow and glow effects, over 30+ masks.
Apply 24 transformation shapes to 2D or 3D texts to bend, warp or give the text a wavy shape.
750+ vector icons, symbols and shapes, 32 flash, flare, sparkle and light trace objects, 570+ backgrounds and textures.
