Art Text overview

Art Text is graphic design software specifically tuned for lettering, typography, text mockups and various artistic text effects. Supplied with a great variety of ready to use styles and materials, selection of textures, icons, fonts and backgrounds, special designed effects and shape transformations, Art Text guarantees striking appearance of your badges, logos, cards, flyers and presentations.

Both professional designers and amateurs will be amazed by the exceptional ease of creating sophisticated effects such as realistic 3D text with any natural material on it - wood, rust, shatter glass, or even chocolate, soft shadow and glow, graphics painted by oil or watercolors, aged and grunge style, and many more.

  • Customizable Templates - Ready-made templates will help with logo design, produce beautiful word art, web elements and picture captions.
  • Fill Tools - Gradient presets, textures, and shading materials.
  • 2D Effects - Adjustable shadow and glow effects, over 30 masks.
  • Graphic Content - Vector icons, symbols and shapes; flash, flare, sparkle, and light trace objects; and backgrounds and textures.
  • 3D Materials - Customize 3D materials using textures, bump map surfaces, and environment map textures.
  • 3D Effects - Apply soft-edged shadow or glow to 3D objects. Use optical effect tools to make background objects out of focus.
  • Geometry Transformations - Apply transformation shapes to 2D or 3D texts to bend, warp, or give the text a wavy shape.
  • Sharing the Result - Share the art on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram with just one click, or export to an image file to use virtually anywhere.

Brilliant little design assistant. Been using v3 and now v4 for several years. Incredibly easy to make your own materials or edit existing ones.

Sadly, this program is very buggy! It worked for a couple days, then started freezing up, and now it won't open at all. Too bad. While it was working, I enjoyed it.

Art Text 4 has – without indicating it in the list of features – removed the ability to export artwork in vector format. You can now only export as raster. Confirmed it by talking to their tech support via email. I have Illustrator and have used it since the mid 90s. Art Text is useful for simple geometrically-perfect transforms of text and I've used it that way for years. But now, it might as well be Microsoft Paint for all the use it is for my workflow. Art Text 3 still allows for vector export, so I'll continue to use it. I've asked BeLight for a refund. I hope they honour it, because it's not very respectful of the user base to remove a critical feature during a paid-for update/upgrade and not inform the buyer beforehand.

Art Text 4 isn't much different than Art Text 3, except the developers now think thy can fleece more money out of you by having you have to buy more crap from an app that has seen better days.
