What's New in Version 3.1.1
Did you see our latest release? It's not over - here's some more stuff! We've made a bunch of improvements including feature tweaks, memory usage and stability upgrades, as well as heaps of other things.
- The app would crash when you tried to Learn More about Perspective Guide. Contrary to what that might indicate, we'd actually really like you to Learn More. Now you can.
- Sometimes when you selected the option to fit the canvas inside the interface, it actually didn't do that. We've vastly improved this feature to the point where it now actually works.
- We've fixed an issue with the start-point of freehand selections. Closing a freehand selection also now immediately commits the mask.
- Transform downsampling could be unnecessarily severe on newer iPads. This temporary unpleasant visual is now significantly improved.
- When you make a Quickline, you can now snap it to 15-degree increments by adding a finger to the canvas while dragging the Quickline endpoint. This already existed in Quickline Transform mode, but it now works immediately when making a Quickline and with Apple Pencil.
- The magnification was missing from the Eyedropper when activated by Touch, which was extremely unhelpful. Now you can actually see what you're doing.
- When changing a color, the color popover could aggressively dismiss when you lifted your finger. It's much calmer now, and will hang around until you tell it to leave.
- Relatedly, activating Eyedropper by touch-hold now works with popovers open. Generally popovers are just a lot more chill.
We've loved seeing how much you're all enjoying the latest features, and we hope this update will make things even better. If you're enjoying Procreate, let us know by leaving a short review on the App Store.
Love this app but I would also love to see improvements.
I love using this app to do designing on my iPad Pro. I got wrist injuries from doing art on the computer and had to stop using it. The iPad Pro has allowed me to do digital art again. Therefor I do not want to sketch here and re-draw on the computer. As of now this app is fine for digital presentations of design. Still It doesn't accommodate all my professional needs when implementing a design for printing. I currently am doing decorative designs and illustrations for the crafts and stationery market. My needs are simple compared to many digital artist. I need more ease of control with sizing and format. I'd like to create a tiff right in the program. I also would like to be able to lock a finished design. Now I open a finished design in Procreate and mess it up just trying to view it. Then I would like better control of rulers. I need to level out a line. Another thing is a better COLOR control system. I need to know what colors will print properly on a personal inkjet/laser printer (digital downloads.) Also having access to pro colors swatches. This is what would make Procreate more useful to me. As I said, my needs are most likely very simple compared to other digital artist. Because of my wrist I need this to be my major tool. Anyway... I think this is a great opportunity to create a comprehensive professional illustration (vector) and painting product for the tablet and iPad. Good Luck!
this app is ridiculous
Today was my first time using procreate, which, I'll be honest I was a little sketch about downloading because it was $6 and I've tried my fair share of not so great art apps. This app is completely worth the money, I would have even paid more for it. I find it to be very simple to use, I especially love the fact that the undo/redo buttons and the size and opacity sliders are to your left, always there. Makes quick brush edits and undos so much quicker. It's such a small detail I haven't seen in any other art applications but I appreciate it A LOT and I think you will too! I think it has a nice variety of brushes, all of them customizable, as well as blenders. And one of my favorite things ever is that this app includes the cut/copy/paste. But it doesn't cut out a whole layer, or a whole section, ONLY what you circle to cut out or move. It lets you flip, rotate, edited the size of the figure, and much more. This is such a crucial tool and I find s lot of apps don't have it, and the ones that do don't have it with such versatility. And I love that it gives you the option to record the screen while you draw so you cans play it back as a time lapse and watch your own progress. Needless to say, if you weren't sure about whether or not this app would be worth a download, I'd just like to reassure you that it absolutely is.
Best 6 dollars I ever spent
I normally paint using my Intuos3 on a PC running Painter. Fine for heavy lifting but being hunched over a desk for several hours, as expected, isn't the best thing in the world. With Procreate I can take care of much of the earlier stages (sketching, inking, flat colors) from the comfort of my couch or bed, and Dropbox the PSD over to my PC when I'm ready to go on.
The recent updates have been especially helpful, in particular the eyedropper button! Whoever in the dev team that pulled it off, buy them a (beverage they like), because that's my favorite part. It's definitely facilitated more "native" art that I can do start-to-finish entirely on the iPad.
The next big feature that would almost certainly cement Procreate as the Best Painting App Ever would be to allow importing of PSDs. I know you can kinda do it now but it's limited and clumsy. I want to be able to bounce PSDs back and forth between my iPad and PC, since that would be useful for super-detailed or large-scale pieces that need a lot of setup and I wouldn't be chained to my desk for the entire duration.
Finally, I want to make a special note about... Patch notes. For being a very serious, professional looking app, Procreate has some hilarious patch notes, on par with the likes of Discord. Buy the patch notes writer a (beverage they like), too. :)
