LES ESCUS DES ARMES is a software heraldic design coats of arms, arms (or arms), developed for Windows, agreed on Apple systems from version 8.

LES ESCUS DES ARMES working with images in BMP format, which enables it to offer custom designs richer than the drawings using the vector format (traits consistent and solid colors). However, it is possible to simulate the vector drawing using their paddle-neck flat.

Over 110 functions arranged in menus 11 can perform most operations haitées often with this type of software, but we are well aware that updates are always necessary, additional features, increasing the number of drawings, etc. . What we offer free of charge for minor changes or additions to the speaker output of new versions.


A coat of arms consists of a field partitioned or not, parts and furniture and a form of shield, all of which can be added, replaced, hidden, and deleted at any time.

Each image can be independently positioned and resized directly on the screen or setup, modified, cut, colored, visible or hidden, or placed before the background.

The composition of arms follows the same logic: the size of the working area is freely chosen by cons.

The module filters

The filter module allows for custom effects by altering the shape of the shield, shadows and lighting effects applied to the ECU, by applying a texture (image used in the background), shadows and blurs to features from images comprising the image. All these effects are pa-rameters (intensity, etc.)..

These filters do not alter the designs and can be applied or removed at any time.

Libraries (unlimited number) provide direct access to his own drawings, which must be stored in folders and subfolders. Access is made immediately, as if they were built drawings. You can import them without additional handling and use them as drawings incorporated into the software. Automatic indexing.

The macro-commands are used to perform a complete operation identical change in the shape of the shield, cleaning (removal of masked images), etc..


In French, Portuguese (Brazilian) and German. Many exercises handling of multiple functions.
