Deneba Software will preview Canvas 7 - a major update to its graphics and DTP software - at the Seybold Seminars in San Francisco next week.

Canvas 7 has greater Web-functionality than its predecessor, making it faster for both Web professionals and novices to create optimized, graphically intricate Web content. It also now has FTP support, for direct transfer of files to the Internet.

The new version allows unlimited imaging filters to be applied to objects, and users can always edit filter settings or original objects. Another feature is the animated GIF document-type, featuring onion-skinning and frame-delay settings.

Canvas 7 is scheduled to ship in October. UK pricing has not yet been set.
