A quick tour thru the menus of this excellent program.
I will be making a more detailed video on the AAS at a later date so any comments, hints, tips or criticism are welcome.

I used this a lot, great fun, and pretty easy to use, especially once you had a mouse.

@ComSoft6128
I always wondered what AAS looked like in action.
What a stunning piece of software!

While looking for more background on the program I found this quote -

"Oxford Computer Publishing developed The OCP Art Studio after programmer James Hutchby saw an Apple Macintosh for the first time, as he remembers: “I admired the Mac but couldn’t afford to own one, so instead I tried to do the same thing on a 48K Spectrum.”
