The Globe and Mail’s Free Design software has been free since 2011.
The program, which is free for users who buy or upgrade to the full version of the program, allows anyone to create, edit and share free designs on the web.
The Globe has not published pricing information for Free Design or other free design programs, but the Globe and AMP Software have said that they have a long-standing relationship with the Free Design Foundation.
The Free Design and Free Design Software programs allow designers and engineers to collaborate in their free time and to share designs, learn from each other, and get to know each other through the Free Designs website, where they are also invited to share and learn from other designers.
Free Designs co-founder and chief operating officer John O’Hara said in a blog post last week that Free Designs will be available on the Mac for a limited time, beginning Jan. 12.
Free Design is available to anyone who buys or upgrades to the Full version of MacPaint, a software for digital illustration and drawing.
The full version, available on Windows and Linux, includes a new and improved drawing interface, enhanced editing tools and a redesigned, cleaner look and feel.
The Mac version of Free Design also includes the following enhancements: • More robust and powerful drawing tools • More flexible design-sharing tools • New, easier-to-use features for sharing and learning from one another • Improved search features for more accurate results • New and improved search options for finding new or shared designs • New search engine and design search options • The ability to share your designs on Instagram and Twitter and to see them in their original context • Accessibility support for a more personalized experience with support for English and French languages.
FreeDesign.com will not be available at all times on the new Mac versions.
The new Mac and Windows versions of Mac Paint will also have support for FreeDesign, which means that Mac users can continue to use the Mac version even if they switch to the new Free Design.
Free designs will remain free until they are retired, O’Haara said.
In a blog posting last week, MacPaints CEO Ryan McAlpine said that the FreeDesign team is “extremely excited” to announce that FreeDesign will be retiring in a few months.
MacPamps new FreeDesign app, the MacPix, will remain available, McAlpines co-creator and CEO said in an update.
Mac Pix, which launched this month, offers Mac users the opportunity to create and edit free design projects for their homes, offices and homeschooling homes.
The app features a wide range of customizable themes, including woodblock prints, wood block prints and woodblock posters.
The developers say they will be adding support for other platforms, including Android and iOS.
