Art App - ClearPainting is a unique drawing and painting app differ from other drawing apps in the app store. Art App provides easy to use, unique interface for people who want to create very nice looking graphics and design arts, and to store them in the Photo album.

Most unique feature of Art App is that it provides opacity/transparency changing colors where each color can be set with different opacity level, thus colors can be semi-transparent/translucent, creating magical mix of colors when colors overlap each other.

It also allows you to use photos from your photo album as background image. The background image can be kept or removed for your final artwork, thus making your art work unique and clean-looking without the photo background. (To do this, draw over a photo background, and then simply change the background image to plain White or Black.)

Art App - ClearPainting is fun for adults and kids who want to create clean and nice looking painting and drawing artworks by tracing photographs and images, or just simply to create very unique semi-transparent color paintings (just like using watercolor or highlighter pens).

Almost right

I wanted to use this to colorize photos. The ability to make colors transparent and the eraser make this work nicely.

I also had a stretching problem, until I turned my ipad to portrait (vertical instead of horizontal). Solved the problem.

However, the lack of control of the colors is a problem. If you click green, you get that one green. If I could adjust the hue, it would make it more useful and it would get 4 stars.

I'd even pay $1 for it then.

Tip: when making small adjustments to a photo, save now and then. Then open the saved photo to continue without risking accidently messing up previous work.

Bad Quality

It wouldn’t let me get in the app. As soon as I open the app it just kicks me out of the app. I even deleted the app and reinstalled it but still can’t use it. Tried refreshing my iPhone and I still can’t use the app. One of my friends got the app to test it out so I asked them if it works on their phone and they said “yeah it works but don’t really like the app” so I tried out the app on their phone and it’s really low quality. You can barely make anything good out of this app. Not a lot of choices of paint brushes and colors and I wouldn’t really recommend this app.

Wouldn't work at all

The app would open and then just close by itself before I could even do anything. I deleted it and reinstalled it and it did the same thing.
