Procreate lets you generate high-caliber artwork at a blistering pace using a robust layering system, stunning filters, and thousands of importable brushes. Plus, Savage Interactive’s super-intuitive app supports pressure sensitivity and Apple Pencil—as well as iCloud Drive and a seamless video recording of each brushstroke—so sharing your work is incredibly simple.
First thing I downloaded for my new iPad and I’m not disappointed. For the price you get some really handy tools with easy to understand interface.
The only thing I’m missing is transformation tools(like perspective, warp, etc.) and effects(like glowing edges and so on).
Hopefully they will add them in future updates but I’m satisfied with the software despite the absence of some features.
Some issues please fix them
I love this up sooo much, my favourite drawing program after PS, but after the huge update I have some PNG issues, I can't save PNG files with invisible background, I mean I can save PNG files but the saved files always came with an annoying white background although I switched off the default background, sooooooooo annoying issues, please fix this or give me some ideas!
I tried everything what i thought it will be the solution eg ipad setting>procreate>preffered image format>PNG
Cleared the ipad's store, or different canvas sizes, this problem is always came through.
(For all that: 5 star)
