Deneba has announced Canvas 7 Standard Edition - an "economy-priced" version of its graphics software.

Canvas 7 SE is available from Deneba via Internet delivery, priced at $85. The software is aimed at small-business users, students and home users.

Deneba says the Canvas 7 SE is ideal for people who don't have professional software budgets, and output on either laser printers or the Web. It doesn't have the high-end features, such as colour separations, spot colour and matching system support, colour calibration, technical file formats, technical illustration tools, and advanced typographic controls.

The software does, however, have the core technology and features, like SpriteLayer transparency tools, SpriteEffect filter capabilities, Web design features, image editing tools and page layout features.
