Bloom is a fast, light-weight, cross-platform procedural graphics editor that lets

you tweak any action you have ever performed - organized by layer.





SEAMLESS

VECTOR & RASTER

Bloom seamlessly integrates both vector and raster editing, automatically converting between the two as necessary. This not only makes it extremely versatile and suitable for any taks from interface design to photo retouching, but also lets you apply purely raster effects and filters to vector shapes without losing any vector data.

TRUE NON-DESTRUCTIVE

EDITING

Bloom is the first editor to allow true non-destructive editing. Every filter, effect, brush stroke or vector edit you apply is stored separately, and nothing is baked in. This allows you to come back to anything you've done in the past and adjust it - without redoing all of the subsequent work. Even brush strokes are editable after you've drawn them!

16-BIT PER CHANNEL

EVERYTHING

Bloom is a purely 16-bit per channel application. Everything, including images, shape colors, masks, and any other color data is stored with 16 bits per channel. This means you never lose precision and color accuracy, allowing for the most vibrant and precise images to be created.




In Bloom, everything is numerically adjustable - all the time, long after the initial effect has been applied. You can tweak and adjust every detail to your heart's delight until your creation is absolutely perfect.



BEST-IN-CLASS

PSD IMPORTER

Unlike many other apps that claim to import Adobe Photoshop PSD file, yet import minimal information, Bloom imports practically everything. Not only does Bloom's PSD importer support layers and groups, it also imports masks on both of them, layer blending modes, and even layer blending effects - on both layers and groups!

LAYER BLENDING

EFFECTS

Bloom features a full suite of blending effects, including drop shadows, inner and outer glows, stroking, inner shadows, and bevelling. These versatile effects allow you to easily edit layer shapes without changing layer style, as well as help with compatibility with other applications.

DIGITAL TABLET

SUPPORT

Bloom features excellent digital tablet support, recoginizing the drawing vs. the eraser tip of the brush, pen pressure, and scene scrolling with the digital pen alone. Brush settings also support ability to control aspects such as opacity, size, and any other setting with pen pressure - all customizable by you.


These amazing features are just the tip of the iceberg. Integrating all of them to work together creates an unparalleled application, that, when mixed in with our unique procedural approach results in a truly first-of-its kind, next generation graphics editor. There's even more features than we describe here, such as live, on-canvas Liquify tool, layer masks, paint mask mode, customizable shape, gradient, brush and layer style libraries, and more.

Bloom even imports Adobe Photoshop™ Brush and Shape library files for added convenience. Moreover, we're not sitting still: we've got tons of amazing ideas for the future, and we're working hard on implementing them.

WE'RE WORKING ON IT. PRONTO.



September 9, 2012
We currently have a very early working pre-alpha prototype which we are continuing to improve as fast as we can. Because of its preliminary status, we cannot currently share this version with you (as much as we want to). But worry not - just as soon as we have something we can give you that you can actually play with, we'll have a download link for beta-testers posted right in this section.
