Graphics : Comicbook style storytelling always a hit -- with Comic Life

by Fred Showker

Comic Life has been upgraded for Mac, PC, and iOS Comic life has always been a favorite, and now it's been updated and spread out for all platforms! Comic Life 3.5 is the latest version of the award winning photo comic creation software we told you about back in 2008! This update to Comic Life 3 includes a suite of new comic templates, a new full color halftone feature for dynamic comic styling effects, and an improved workflow to the drag and drop script feature.

Robert Grant, plasq's CEO said

Quoting  begins Our users love the graphic capabilities of Comic Life ... The new templates take these capabilities to a new level and are sure to give a big creativity boost for everyone. Quoting  ends

new version is great

The new templates in Comic Life 3.5 cover a wide range of topics and include award certificates, education, trading cards for sports teams or games, and modern styles and themes for creative comics. The new creative and life story templates lead off with a front page design followed by multiple stylized pages to match the theme. Templates designed specifically for education give students the framework to build a science report, write a newspaper, create a skill sheet for physical education, and build the school's yearbook in Comic Life 3.

The new full color halftone feature gives total control over how the halftone is rendered and is available for any element on the page. A simple interface controls the display of the halftone dots and users can set the size of the dots and adjust the foreground and background colors.

The workflow of the Script Editor is improved with an upgrade to the drag and drop feature. Text from the Script Editor can now be pulled from the script and dropped into an existing text element on the comic page. Users can now quickly update the comic page if there are changes to the script without having to duplicate elements or alter layout, saving the user time and also making the templates more functional.
