importing photos


I love this product the only issue is I don’t believe there is a way to move around the photos you import in. I use my Mac to draw and I do digital drawings of paper drawings ive already done and i can’t seem to move the drawing maybe thats just me but that is an issue. Also it only allows me to moveis straight lines and i can no longer curve any lines please help. It hasjust started doing this help!!!

Plzzz my guy


i think this is a good app, EXCEPT for the fact that you cannot flip the canvas, or add layers. There is a version where you pay money and get those qualities of the app, however some people are limited to the regular tools of this drawing app. If you can add these qualities to the app, that would be great.
