Awesome app but still problems with importing images!!!


I just bought this app after using a demo of an eariler version its working ok so far but Im still having issues with importing an image, if you import 2 images onto the same layer (im currently building a collage of small images on one layer to use as a guide while drawing on to another layer on top). the first image disappears then if you create a new layer and reimport the image the first layer duplicates the image. I ended up creating several layers and having to merge them into one, this is really frustrating. Please please fix this, as I love this programme and so what to be able to use it to illustrated digitally. You would be helping me save so many trees!! The paint brush and pen tools are a piece of coding genius!. Thank you :)

It all hinges on the watercolour.


If you’re anything ike me, you’re thinking of buying this for the watercolour brushes. And you’d be right to: they’re beautiful. The trouble is that there are only three widths. On a test I made, they came out at 4px, 70px and 120px. That’s not enough for me and without exporting, resizing and reimorting the drawing, I can’t get any more (and that makes for a horrible workflow).
But… the brushes are lovely. The wet effect works really well. I’ll still be using Sketches Pro, just not as much as I’d like to.

paint bucket found


I’ve revised my review. Now that the online manual is working properly I can see there is indeed a paint bucket / flood fill kind of tool and its actually rather good. Although its a bit hit and miss at filling enclosed spaces. Maybe it doesn’t get on with my Bamboo graphics tablet. Still sad that the straight line tool only works in 45 and 90 degree angles but its a fun program for beginners. Two extra stars added to my review.
