Chasys Draw IES is a suite of image editing applications including a layer-based image editor with adjustment layers, animation, icon editing support and super-resolution via image stacking (Chasys Draw IES Artist), a multi-threaded image file converter (Chasys Draw IES Converter) and a fast image viewer (Chasys Draw IES Viewer), with RAW image support in all components. The whole suite is UAC aware and is designed to take advantage of multi-core processors, touch-screens and pen-input devices.

“unique, flexible and powerful”

Chasys Draw IES is built to adhere to four core principles, which I call the “four pillars of Chasys Draw IES”:
  • Character: No photoshop imitations here
  • Performance: Fast, efficient and stable
  • Innovation: New techniques and out-of-the-box thinking
  • Cleanliness: Clean code devoid of bloatware
The adherence to these principles is the reason why it is said that once you go Chasys you will never go back.
