Ratings and Reviews
Amazing app but something changed it...
So I am quite an editor And as well I do digital art. I've been looking for quite some time for an app that I can edit with that is free and gets the job done with editing, and finally I found one! It was Ibis Paint X, I love editing especially with an app that doesn't call for money, until I found out for the new update. The new update threw me off... From when erasing and all the brushes have changed which I do not like. When erasing the brush gets bigger which I do not like. For smaller areas you would need to go down in a straight line (like If you were in a street) and the street went onto the houses and you just need a little brush to get some of the little paint off the houses, well that used to happen... But now you can't, the brush will be small then get bigger and bigger, so that's what I do not like. As well as the brushes, the brushes... Ah let's see here, well the brushes don't have their same style anymore really, like the Pin dip and the Airbrush they both have the dark opacity Now instead of when back then the airbrush would Be lighter and all and you could go over and over again until you like the opacity you get. Honestly I think this app is awesome and amazing, but I just hope they can fix this so when making art, things won't bother you as much. So this is why I am giving this app a four star out of five.
This is an amazing app and I use it all the time. I love all the effects such as blurring, layers, copy and paste, and so much more. You also get to view a time-lapse of your work, which I think is awesome. There are just two very minor things that sorta bug me a bit. The first one is really not that big of a deal, but when I’m viewing the top art pieces, sometimes I like to watch the time lapse. After I finish watching it, It starts back at the beginning and it moves really slow. The other thing is also not a huge deal, but when you make the line more transparent, you can’t use the bucket tool. An example of a time where this was an inconvenience was I was drawing a light, and wanted to make the lit area of the wall lighter. I didn’t want a line to show, so I made it super transparent, almost invisible. But when I tried to use the bucket tool, it covered my whole wall. It’s almost like the app doesn’t think a light line is a line at all. It was no big deal, because a found another way, but for a while I thought I would have to color in the whole wall by hand. So, overall, this app gets a gold star sticker from me, but there are just a few little kinks to be worked out.
Amazing app, but...
I had this app for a while now and I have gotten really attached to it and I know how to use most of the things on it. It’s really a great app and it has a lot of features that can be used for any drawing at any possible time. it’s very convenient but there is some problems with it. Sometimes when I want to use the paint bucket tool or if I want to move a picture I’ll use the transformation tool but results in crashing the app. Half the time it just crashes without explanation, just at random. This can be really inconvenient because I’ll have to redo anything I just did.
Another issue is the message that “my app is running out” even when I just have one layer and it becomes very slow and laggy to do anything and I have to restart it for it to be normal again. Now I have another issue that started this morning when I tried to get back on a picture I was working on but the app wouldn’t even let me work on it anymore, it would just freeze. Now I can’t work on my picture, I’ve been working on it for a long time and I really want to have the bugs fixed so I can continue doing my drawings. It really is a great app! I just think it needs to have the bugs fixed so everyone can enjoy doing their illustrations.
