Description

The most advanced simulation of real paint on iOS! Get creative on a digital canvas with smearing, blending oils, delicate watercolor, and much more! Ever wanted to try painting your masterpiece but were put off by the mess and expense? Now you can!

ArtRage isn't just about color: It knows how much paint you've used so you can smear it around to spread it over the canvas. It knows how wet your paint is so you can blend it with other paints. It even knows about the roughness of your paper so your pencils can be used for soft shading.

It's not just a special effect either - ArtRage is a live simulation of the properties of real artistic media that lets you can get creative with colors and textures using tools you already know how to use!

ArtRage takes full advantage of the features of your device like larger canvases on iPad Pro, Apple Pencil support for pressure & tilt, and 3D touch on your iPhone.

Features:

Real world painting tools: Oils, Watercolors, Paint Rollers, Pencils, Crayons and more. Each tool has a range of familiar properties such as how much thinner is applied to the paint, or how soft a pencil tip is. Tools apply texture as well as color, and blend under the brush.

Add Layers to your painting and work on individual elements without damaging others. ArtRage supports a wide range of Layer Blend Modes, and layer contents can be scaled moved and rotated independently.

Import images, converting them to oil for smearing or as Reference Images pinned to the canvas as a visual guide. Load photos as Tracing Images which are overlaid on the canvas, and have ArtRage select colors automatically as you paint.

The interface has been designed to maximize your creative space without hiding away critical functions such as tool and color selection. As you paint, it gets out of the way so that you don’t have to stop and manually adjust panels.

Record your paintings! The ArtRage Script system lets you record strokes while you paint for playback in desktop versions of the product at higher resolution.

Import and Export using external services such as Dropbox, and iCloud Drive. Share your images on Facebook, Twitter, and any other sharing app on your device.

Tools:

• Oil Brush, Watercolor, Airbrush, Palette Knife, Paint Roller, Paint Tube, Inking Pen, Pencil, Marker Pen, Chalk, Crayon, Glitter Tube, Gloop Pen, Eraser, Flood Fill.

• Paint simulation monitors the physical properties of your paints to allow natural blending, smearing, and other real world behavior.

• Preset support to save your favorite settings for later use.

• Supports the Apple Pencil's Pressure and Tilt properties, and 3D Touch where available to add realism to the simulated paint strokes.

Layers:

• Unlimited layers with Photoshop standard blend modes, visibility and opacity controls. Scale, rotate, and position layer contents independently.

Version 1.6.2

We've been told about a problem using ArtRage on iOS7.1, specifically with the airbrush tool. A fix has been submitted for approval and we hope it will be available shortly.

For detailed information or help use the ArtRage Online button inside the app's Help system, or visit us online at www.artrage.com/artrage-ipad.html.

If you are updating to 1.6, please shut down ArtRage fully and restart your iPad before using it the first time. This helps to avoid speed problems in first time setup that could cause ArtRage to shut down before fully opening the first time you launch it, and makes sure application preferences are clean for the new version.

What's New in 1.6.2:

- Fixed a problem that could prevent the app launching correctly on iOS4.

- Fixed a problem that prevented some text items in the interface displaying on iOS7 when using a Retina iPad.

- Added iOS7 standard icon sizes to the application.

What's New In 1.6:

- Enhanced Stylus Support:

ArtRage now supports the Wacom Intuos Creative Stylus and TenOne Pogo Connect Stylus in addition to the original model Adonit Jot Touch.

To turn on support for one of these styluses use the ArtRage section in the Settings App on your iPad. Turn on support for the stylus you want to use, follow the instructions that come with that stylus for pairing with your device, and return to ArtRage.

For detailed information on how to use these three stylus types with ArtRage please check the information link above, or the ArtRage Online button in the toolbar of the ArtRage Help system in the app.

- Optional Tap and hold color sampling:

Due to requests from users we've made the tap and hold color sampling system optional. By default this is turned OFF. If you would like tap and hold to trigger the color sampler open the Settings app on your iPad and turn the preference on in the ArtRage section.

Fixes:

- In 1.6.1: Fixed a problem that could prevent the panels being accessed after color sampling with Tap and Hold sampling turned off until a paint stroke had been made.

- Airbrush Stroke Issues: We have replicated and fixed a problem that could cause odd brush stroke behavior or harsh edged non-undoable strokes to be generated if changing color or accessing other interface elements rapidly after completing an airbrush stroke. This problem was most visible when the airbrush was in Autoflow mode. Thanks to the users who put in the time to help us track this one down!

- Changes to Save: We've made some changes to the save system to improve save speed. This may also assist in the rare cases we've seen reported where a file has failed to save properly.

- Import Popover Dismissal: We've fixed a problem that could cause the Import from Photos or Camera popup to remain visible in the Gallery when accessing other menu items without completing the import operation.

- Landscape Mode Drag: We have made some changes to stroke handling to fix a problem that could cause interface panels such as the tool picker and color picker not to get out of the way when you paint close to them.

- Color Sampler Hiding: Fixed a rare situation that could result in the color sampler being hidden during a sample operation if you dragged quickly enough up and over it.

Please Note:

If you experience a problem with ArtRage, let us know using our support link, or the ArtRage Online link in the product itself. We're happy to work through problems with you and in most cases we can quickly resolve the issue.
