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 only a few requests!

Really fantastic app I have come from a laptop + drawing tablet and feel so much more free to do what I want with the ipad and Procreate. Doing mainly architecture drawings I feel like the perspective tool is fantastic and a great help for shading, and the range of brushes let me do most things I require.

Little pains with the program have been the ability to import photoshop brushes I have a few nice promarker brushes I can’t import( not sure if I’ve just not researched enough to get it to work though) and a mass colour select ( just like select colour range in photoshop), but the selections are good just a little slower. Honing on the selections I still haven’t found a way to mass fill a selection in an already coloured mask to add to the mask quickly. Really small issues to be honest but if they were fixed it would be a perfect app to render with. If I’m being really cheeky some vector brushes would be fantastic but one can always dream.

Fantastic works 9/10 am still unsure if I’m just not using the app properly and need to do more research to find all the tools I need.

The reason I bought an iPad.

I’ve been using Procreate for years and it keeps getting better and better with each iteration. The price has remained incredibly reasonable over this time and it’s brilliant that the developers have kept it as a single purchase price. The temptation to go to a subscription model, both financially and by Apple must be great. What you get for, currently (2019) £10, is incredible. I’ll not go into detail about the range of creative possibilities but they are wide and the apps functionality is largely well thought through and user friendly, as it’s designed for the iPad and not an evolution of a desktop app. There are rarely issues with bugs and the team really do a great job of sorting issues out as quickly as they can. There is a great community around the app as well and much support for the developers. Basically, this app, for creative designers, illustrators, and painters (and more recently, animators) is a reason to buy the iPad, (even the more affordable models), and Apple are very lucky to have it on their platform.
