Pros: PSD support. Can turn off all hand input and make pen react only, so I dont need to wear gloves to draw. Cons: Cannot add an image from file as a new layer; import image replaces entire canvas and deletes previous canvas. No auto-save or auto-backup, only reminders. Lost work due to both of these cons combined.
I don't know if my emails really reached them, but the devs of this app appear to never response to feedback emails. I'm sure I'm not the only one. Anyway the current app is just fine. 6/10
I purchased this app because I wanted to have the liberty to paint with my Galaxy tablet with canvases large enough to be printable. I did a bit of research and found LayerPaint HD was among the few apps capable of working with 3000+ pixel canvases, but now that Autodesk Sketchbook has updated their app, theirs also support larger canvases, too. Still, LayerPaint HD has really cool features which Sketchbook doesn't --like the perspective snap tools-- which are fantastic if your project involves architectural drawings. Their selection, masking and modifying tools are also very powerful. Now, let's go with the down-sides: LayerPaint has a VERY limited set of brushes, and the ones it has are not very easy to handle and blend. Their 'watercolor' brushes don't really give you a watercolor look, and a rough pastel brush would be greatly appreciated. Still, with a little patience and experimenting you CAN create very decent effects. Right now my biggest complain is that the masking capability of the selection tools doesn't seem to work with the flat brush, which is the one I'm happening to be currently using. Hopefully this will be sorted out in a future update.
I really really love the app. But I'd like to have the opportunity to rotate selectet items. I tried to find some tool for it but I couldn't find it.
By far the best app of its kind. Great selection of brushes and customization ability. And will only get better with the regular updates. The new brush scripts are great. I bought this app before medibang paint was even released in English and was only a Japanese app for concept sketching with limited colors. And I continue to use this app over it. Being able to create bitmaps for new brushes is my favorite part about this app. As far as I know sketchbook pro does not allow the user to do this.
Is there any chance you can make it possible to pan and zoom the canvas at the same time?
Malfunction of bitmap/scatter watercolor has been fixed.
