This is a demo!!! It has limitations.
This program is a demonstration version of Embellish.
It is fully functional and has all capabilities of the
release version of Embellish. It has been provided this
way so that you may evaluate the software in its complete
form. Please examine the license agreement (license.txt)
that was included with the program. If the file is missing
you must contact www.dadaware.com for the file - it is a
violation to use this software without first reading and
agreeing to the terms of the license agreement. The file
should have been already displayed for Win95 users.
This demo is use limited. This means that it will cease
working after a certain number of uses. You will be
warned as to the amount of uses availabe during the
startup of the program.
How to buy.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or visit our web site
at http://www.dadaware.com for a list of retailers.
Because Embellish is sold as commercial software its
pricing is set by the retailer and will vary.

Be sure to describe the problem in as much detail as possible,
what events led up to the problem, if it is repeatable.
OS/2: If installing from CD-ROM, go to the OS2 directory
and run install.
Win95: If installing from CD-ROM, go to the WIN95 directory
and run setup.
Because of the way Windows handles file associations
(the .bmp like extension of file names), the installation
for Embellish is broken into 2 parts. The first is
accomplished by the setup.exe command. After running
this, Embellish can be run and is fully functional.
However Embellish will not be associated with any of
the graphics files it can read.
When a program is associated with a file extension, the
program's icon will be shown when you view the file's
icon and the program will be launched when the user
double clicks on the file's icon.
We do this 2 part install because you may want to keep
files associated with an image viewer, a web browser or
whatever. If you decide that you do want the file's
associated with Embellish, run the program regsetup.exe
after installing Embellish (it will be in the same
directory as Embellish). Read the instructions it
provides and be sure to not to destroy the backup file
it creates. This file is needed if you ever want to
If the files are downloaded or from floppy disks, run the commands
listed above but do not change to the specified directory first.
OS/2: Run INSTALL.EXE (which is included on the first disk or CDROM) to
uninstall Embellish. When running install, choose 'Delete and
reinstall'. Select the Embellish component to delete. After the deletion
has occured, the install program will prompt you about
re-installing. At this point exit the install procedure and
Embellish will have been removed.
Win95: Double-Click on the 'My Computer' icon. In the folder that is displayed,
find 'Control Panel' and Double-Click. Choose 'Add/Remove Programs'
and Double-Click. Look for the Embellish entry in the listbox, select it
and choose remove. If you did the file association (regsetup)
mentioned in the install section, you will need to run it again
before you perform the normal un-install.

1. The manual section on use of the Clone tool is incorrect, refer to
the online documentation instead.
2. The manual description on the use of the Color paint implies that
intensity and saturation change will be linked to pressure. This is
untrue, they are not pressure related. See the online documentation
for more information.
3. The manual refers to Shear - Random, it should be Random Shear.
