What’s New

Version 5.0.1

Now that Procreate 5 has been born and is out in the wild, it's time to deliver the afterbirth of life-giving bug fixes and improvements.

* The annoying snap while using colours is no more
* Importing CMYK PSDs with transparency got a whole lot more transparent
* Rotating and inverting grains now works for Texturised grains as well
* If you had backed up your swatches from Procreate 4 and tried to reimport them you received squat
* Have no fear moving from Brush Studio straight to Gallery. The bug has been vanquished
* Background colour is now cool with you jumping back to Gallery
* Combine modes should remain same for primary and secondary brush (was showing normal and not updating for secondary)
* Straya and Blighty localisations got some attention
* Full screen wasn't particularly full screen with the painting toolbar hanging around, and also wouldn't return automatically. lol.
* Back by popular demand, larger iPads now display all Liquify options and settings
* Copying and Pasting while the Colour Companion is open no longer harms your ability to Transform
* Just because you reset your custom brush didn't necessarily mean you wanted to remove all your author information
* Smudging with symmetry now smudges with symmetry
* Custom brushes in the QuickMenu were replaced with Round Brush if you reset them
* Fixed a crash when setting a Background Colour
* Gallery Preview got a good kick in the nappy to make it go faster
* For pixel art people, we've fixed 1px brushes so that they paint at 1px
* Lots of little ABR support improvements
* Some lovely improvements to stroke end taper
* Brush spacing is now the same as it was in Procreate 4

We haven't cut the umbilical cord on Procreate 5 just yet. Still a few more little surprises and bug fixes to come.

Great App For All Level Artists

This is a great app, I bought it today and coming from a Wacom tablet, I prefer this. It is easy to use and has great tools for art. Here are some pros and cons

Lots of tools varying from drawing, inking and sketching.
Inexpensive but it does not show it in the software
No lag at all
You can zoom in and out to do very great detail
Upload images to copy from as a reference image
Lots of colours, also if you need an exact colour, put the colours number into the software and it lets you use that colour

I thought long and hard but I cannot think of a con. Only thing I recommend is getting a cheap $12 stylus from a electronic store or staples which is more comfortable.

Thank you pro create for this amazing app! I have been creating lots of great art work with it. Also, thank you for making it affordable!

Support just blew me off.

Sent support an email saying procreate has become an essential professional tool, and asking if the big upcoming fall release will be disruptive to workflow and storage.

Answer: If you don't like it, don't update.

That's how you lose people, because you won't be the only good option for long.
