Rip Studio Pro
When it comes to designing ads, music, book or CD covers and comprehensive collages, you can employ the services of full-featured and competent applications like Photoshop, but there are simpler ways.
This said, Rip Studio is a user-friendly and reliable piece of software that aims to make it as simple as possible for you to design collages, covers or posters. Right off the bat, you should know that this is an application designed to be as accessible as possible, all while being able to handle multiple layers and 3D shadowing effects.
Created for professionals who want eye-catching elements for their designs and compositions. Quickly rip out shapes and letters by drawing around on your image. Create paper objects for Ads, Music covers, Art Collages and Scrapbook pages with one-of-a-kind cutout, ripped out, taped and pinned shapes made from images or other clipart. With Rip Studio you can throw out those boring overused templates and create a custom piece with complete control over shape, width, fiber, texture and curl.
Built with PRO features Rip Studio easily creates a single incredible piece or a whole collage right inside the app! Built with a powerful workflow, you can add images quickly simply selecting them from your library and dropping them—all at once—on the open application. As each image is placed a layer is created for easy compositing, editing and transformation. To finish your composition, choose from a library of gems, stickpins and staples; or add transparent tape, duct tape and masking tape for added interest.
With a focus on ease-of-use, ripped pieces can be created by freely drawing on the image or background—if too much is ripped out simply reverse the tool and add the area back in. Also, included in the app is an Image Tool to allow photos to be resized or rotated inside the ripped pieces; or you have the option to completely replace the image while retaining the shape. This powerful feature enables professionals to create custom templates for future use and allows projects to be shared with other artists.
