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.

  • 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.

Art text 3 is the best ever tool in the design platform, allows me to creat stunning designs , logos and banners with an easy to use and intuitive way with the best results ever , I donot know why many people pay for designing software like sketch and Adobe while this app is professional and all in one . Laogos , shapes , art texts and many more . I'm in marketing department and I use it for my work . The killing feature is the ability to add both 2D and 3D letters with a fully customizable designs that are outstanding . I deleted an app for making logos after tried art text. Sure 5 stars

The new Art Text basically sucks, it just sucks. What a waste of money....and the lowest score I could give was an 0.5.... i need the option for minus 1,000 stars.

WARNING! This upgrade is a hot holy mess. Basic features like coloring a PNG are gone. Opening 2.x files in 3.x destroys them and requires that they be completely rebuilt. Raising these issues with the company results repeated replies asking and answering the same questions over and over as if they either don't know what they are doing or are intentionally delaying. DO NOT UPGRADE if you depend on 2.x of this app. If you do then after upgrading 2.x will no longer export files unless you completely reinstall it.

Having used this for a few days now I can say this current version is a huge improvement on 2. Whereas I found version 2 to be a little amateurish and 'cheesy', version 3 is now more professional in its features and effects with the added ability to control and create effects. Having said that I do question it's overall stability, it's prone to freeze especially when saving and while crashes don't occur very often they do occur. I'm sure these will be fixed in future updates (I hope). For now my advice is to save as often as you can.

Version 3 is awesome. The only thing I would change is the interface color. I hate the white on black (dark gray). I abandoned the use of Pixelmator simply because it was too hard on my eyes. I would have given it 5 stars if it hadn't made the interface harder to see.

Version 3 appears to be a giant step forward, but there needs to be a manual. How do I copy my formatted text without the background? Generally, I only want the "artified" text and don't want a background at all. In version 2, when I copied the text to the clipboard, it would copy just the text. I'm sure I'm missing something here.

A fantastic app that has made creative projects so easy compared to TypeStyler which used to be my go to. Suggestion: Horizontal & Vertical Rulers. When Exporting to file, the Spinning Wait Cursor appears making the export take up to 10 minutes or sometimes not at all, requiring a force quit of the app. This never happened until a couple months ago. Wondering if the app should be trashed and reinstalled.

I love this app! I do not have a background in design, yet this lets me add genuinely professional looking flair to my personal projects and some more widely seen public viewable projects. It is well worth the money to have this niche tool to stand out from the crowd! My only request to the developer - please pick up the flag and lead the charge to bring back the "Save As". Maybe I am to old school, but I really prefer that :-) Regardless, it is a great app! Nicely done.
