WHAT’S NEW IN SKETCH 4.7
Choose how double-tap works with your Apple Pencil (2nd Generation)
We’ve added a preference option to control double-tap on the latest iPad Pro with the new Apple Pencil. We think you’ll love adding this time-saving feature to your painting experience, and they even work in full-screen drawing mode. Choose from one of these options under your iPad’s settings for Adobe Sketch:
• Switch between brush and eraser - If you find yourself using these two tools a lot, this option lets you work faster.
• Switch between current and last used brush - this allows you to use two brushes at once and switch quickly between them.
• Activate the color picker - If you want a quicker way to pick a color from the canvas, select this option. You can use this in full-screen mode, too!
• Zoom in or out - Zooming in and out of the canvas has never been easier! With this option, double- tap to view the full artwork, and double-tap again to zoom in and work on a detailed region of your painting.
• None - Don’t want to use this feature? That’s cool. Use this to turn the double-tap option off.
Send to Printer:
Now you can send your work directly to the printer from within the app. Simply tap on the share icon, select SHARE -> Image. You’ll be prompted on where to share. Be sure to select Print. Happy printing!

I’m Loving it. My Art drive is back 30+ years later..
Being a car nut since playing with HotWheels as a kid, My love for cars grew to model cars and eventually Art. After taking Art in JR High I spent hours sketching various cars which I loved but knew I could probably never obtain in real life. Years later headed to work with my prized Automotive Artwork to share with some Co-workers, a freak thunderstorm swept through my car and sucked all of my work out through the passenger window at 65mph and scattered it into a flooding river along the Highway. Lost forever I was immediately sickened knowing I had just watched every memory and piece of art I had created since grade school to that point in time blow right out of the window. This was way before Smart Phones, Apps and electronic storage. Fast forward to this year 2018 using my iPad Pro for work I discovered Adobe Sketch for field drawings and documentation of construction projects. Bored one night I decided to try to recapture my passion for art drawing a vintage VW Bus for a friend who heads up a world wide social media site using Adobe Sketch. After spending over 8 hours doing my first ever Full Color Rendering I posted it on the site. I immediately watched as the likes began to poor in. I’m now back in the world of art which I once Loved thanks to this Amazing tool called Adobe Sketch.. Many sincere thanks to the creators of this Amazing App....

Blown away by the watercolor in this app
Kudos to whoever programmed the watercolor part of this app! This is my favorite painting app by far, and I’ve tried several including the most popular and paid art apps. What keeps me coming back (addicted!) to Adobe Sketch is the beautiful subtlety of how the paint interacts with the surface. Other apps can achieve fairly realistic edges and blending, but with my brush stylus and this app, I feel like I’m painting with watercolor, the way real watercolor works. I forget that I’m working in digital format because the tools seem to work the same way. The paper is “wet” at first and the paint interacts with it, spreads and dries down. Washes interact with each other, and the flow setting is so intuitive, works the same as deciding water to pigment ratio. This app is so realistic I even found myself instinctively lifting paint. Not erasing, but lifting with water just as I would in real life. Love the rest of the app too but I’m especially appreciative of the obvious care that went into the watercolor functions. Thanks!
One wish: it would round out the experience if I could have a palette of preselected colors set out instead of choosing anew each time I change colors, but I get by with the color picker. It’s just a little slower than having key colors already “mixed” and at the ready while I paint.
Adobe’s creative ecosystem makes it almost impossible to be creative without signing up, signing in, digging into your bank account.... monthly, working without a network connection and paying for another upgrade to the application. I’ve been working with Apple products since 1989 and I consider myself to be fairly tech oriented. I bought an iPad Pro specifically to work with lightroom and other Adobe products. Honestly, I can’t get half of their products to work anymore. Unless you are some kind of Adobe fan boy, you will realize that there are other products out there that far surpass the performance and price of most Adobe products. Save the monthly fees and your sanity from trying to get this bloatware to operate as you would expect and FIND ANOTHER WAY. Adobe was is king once upon a time but all empires eventually collapse. Adobe is more interested in connecting to your bank account for its monthly extraction than it is interested in creating a product that are actually useful. I don’t want your slow cloud, I don’t want to be stressed out with my machine can’t remember my Adobe ID so that I can use your app, I don’t want another monthly fee so that the application that I already purchased will do what it should already do. Skip this product and go give your money to a developer who will actually make your creative experience seamless and enjoyable. Like Procreate. Now I’m gonna go delete all of adobes applications off of my iPad Pro and I will never look back.
