Praise for PlaidMaker

You have potentially saved me hours of line drawing and color matching with pencils.


Though I use Photoshop for developing plaids and stripes textures, I found PlaidMaker is much more easy and consumes less time.


Your program makes plaid renderings extremely fast and is very efficient for me at work.


I am sure you have been told this many times but I shall say this again: this is such a brilliant tool.


For the quick and dirty plaids, yours is the place to go! (I mean that as a compliment.)
