Lux Draw

By Norbyte

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


An art app for the enlightened.
Let your creativity really run wild with Lux Draw's futuristic tools that include a 'Glow Pen', a 'Hot Pen' and even 'Light Spheres'!
There is also a smudge tool, as well as an ordinary pen and eraser if you prefer that.

Full Screen Drawing:
Full Screen mode is fully supported.
In addition, you can press the Tab key to hide the toolbar.

Zooming And Panning:
Pinch (trackpad) or use keyboard shortcuts to zoom in/out.
To pan, drag with two fingers (trackpad), slide with one finger (Magic Mouse) or use arrow keys.
Double tap with two fingers (trackpad) or press Space to reset the zoom/pan.

Simply choose whether to draw on the foreground, middle ground or background.

Color Sets:
Click once on a color to select it. Click a second time to adjust it in a number of ways or to pick a new color.
Adjacent to the colors you will find buttons to switch between the different color sets.
Press a second time if you want to replace the color set with one of the default ones.

You can work on up to 10 drawings, stored within the app under 'Work In Progress', so you don't have to use the export function until a drawing is completely finished.
Exported drawings can be found in your Pictures folder, inside a Lux Draw folder.
You can also import an image to either the current layer or the background layer.

Popup Help:
For information on what a specific button does, just hover the mouse pointer above it for a few seconds and a short explanation will appear.

* Layers support
* Pinch to zoom
* Supports full screen and windowed mode
* Multiple undo/redo steps
* Customizable color sets/palettes
