Adobe Photoshop Sketch — Expressive painting and sketching with realistic tools
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Create expressive drawings and paintings without opening a sketchbook. Your artwork can be sent as layered PSD files to Adobe Photoshop CC or resized up to 4x in Illustrator CC to print high-resolution copies.
Thirteen tools — each with adjustable size, color, opacity and blending — produce the rich results you want. Includes a graphite pencil, an ink pen, markers and watercolor paintbrushes*.
CUSTOMIZE YOUR TOOLBAR
Organize your favorite tools and colors in the toolbar, and place it on the right- or left-hand side.
PERSPECTIVE AND GRAPH GRIDS
Grids make it easy to align elements in your drawings and create life-like perspective.
Draw with precision and control using pressure-sensitive pens including Adobe Ink, Pencil by 53 and styluses from Adonit and Wacom.
Use the integrated Touch Slide to draw straight lines, circles, squares, triangles and French curves. It doubles as a placement tool — select shape stencils from an in-app menu. Pinch to scale. Trace the outline or double tap to stamp.
Import images to reference while you draw or to composite into a collage. Images can be placed on top of or behind your sketches.
High-res, royalty-free images from Adobe Stock are searchable from inside the app. Incorporate licensed images into your work.
CREATIVE CLOUD LIBRARIES
Get easy in-app access to your assets — including Adobe Stock images and brushes created in Capture CC.
DIRECT TO DESKTOP
Send a file to Photoshop CC or Illustrator CC. It automatically opens on your desktop, letting you effortlessly build on your idea. Files sent to Photoshop open as layered PSD files. Artwork sent to Illustrator can be resized up to 4x to print high-resolution copies.
POWERED BY CREATIVESYNC
Adobe CreativeSync ensures that your files, fonts, design assets, settings and more all instantly appear in your workflow wherever you need them. Start your creative work on any device and seamlessly pick it up on another.
Publish your work to the Behance creative community and get feedback without leaving the app. You can also share through Facebook, Twitter and email.
Adobe mobile apps work beautifully on their own, or in concert with each other and the Creative Cloud desktop apps. Try using Photoshop Sketch with:
2GB FILE STORAGE
Use of Adobe mobile apps requires a free, basic level of Creative Cloud membership, which includes 2GB of complimentary storage for file syncing and sharing.
*Available on iPad mini 2, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 4, iPad Air, iPad Air 2
MORE STORAGE (Optional in-app purchase)
If you need more than your allotted 2GB of Creative Cloud file storage, you have the option of purchasing an additional 20GB for $1.99 (US dollars) a month. The recurring payment is automatically charged to your iTunes account. To stop service, simply go to your account Settings and turn off auto-renew at least 24-hours before the end of your billing period. Prorating is unavailable — when you turn off auto-renew, service will continue until the end of that month’s billing period.
The Fine Print
What's New in Version 3.1.1
OPTIMIZED FOR iPAD PRO
Sketch on iPad Pro’s beautiful, large screen and take advantage of the extra space for your sketches and paintings.
APPLE PENCIL SUPPORT
Take creativity further with built-in support for pressure, shading and palm rejection with the new Apple Pencil. Draw thin or thick lines by adjusting the pressure of your stroke. Apply shading or change your brush characteristics with the tilt of your hand.
Sketch now supports portrait orientation. Create portrait-oriented sketches by rotating your device into portrait mode when opening new sketches.
SPLIT VIEW SUPPORT ON iOS 9
Split View support allows you to have multiple apps open, simultaneously, so you can multi-task between apps easily.
We’ve fixed a problem that caused inadvertent sign-out. Sketch should now properly remember your sign-in status. We’ve also improved overall performance and stability.
If you enjoy using Sketch, please share a nice review. It really helps!
Great app, crashes a bit too frequently though.
I love this app. The tools and simple interface are great. However, during my first sketch the app crashed 9 times. Thankfully the app auto saves your progress often. I only ever lost about ~5 seconds of progress. Still annoying, though.
With some updates to stability, this is easily a 5-star app.
Note: I'm on the iPad Pro and using the Apple Pencil, in case that matters for stability.
Crashes often, Pencil support not there yet
Controls are also not very intuitive and there is a slight lag when using Apple's Pencil, a lag which doesn't seem to be present with Apple's own Notes app. Crashes at least a couple of times within an hour of usage, which is quite annoying but at least the work isn't lost when it happens.
I like it!
This app from Adobe is easy to use. It doesn't have a lot of features, but what it has (several brushes, adjustable brush sizes, colors, adjustable opacity, etc) makes it effective. Plus, it's Adobe, and I feel like they'll keep making it better.
