Artist's Description

The DesignLabComposition Program

I wrote the software That produces all of my work posted here, with very few exceptions.

DesignLab2007 creates and renders vector objects against some unique color palettes.

(NEW) DesignLabComposition can take any of the imaged outputs from DesignLab2007 and rearrange them in new compositions.
The program is unique in that you work in lower resolutions and can recreate image in any resolution you want.
For example.

1) I imported these images into Designcomposition and it brings into the project directories.
1) full size image
2) 100×100 thumbnail
3) 500×500 workimage

You compose using the 500×500 workimage

You then use the recreate function to recreate the composition in any factor you want.
The program re accesses the large originals and recreates a workimage of the requested image and redraws it.

You can then save this re sized image.

This allows you to compose with smaller but adequate images, not stressing our cpu horsepower, but to produce very large bitmaps as well.

Of course everything depends on originals being of adequate size and quality.
Anything that has ever been a jpg doesn’t handle transparency very well. jpg muddies the transition between colors when it compresses. OK when color is there, but when made transparent leaves blocks of transition colors.
You can fix this by making a range of colors transparent, I haven’t wrote that software yet, and have only seen one program that does it.
