Why choose Pro­cre­ate over other paint­ing pro­grams?

I was look­ing for other ways to dig­i­tally paint with­out be­ing tied down to a desk­top com­puter. I fell in love with Pro­cre­ate be­cause it’s an app that of­fers ev­ery­thing I need with an artist-friendly in­ter­face, and I can take my iPad any­where, so it’s like draw­ing in a sketch­book. Com­ing from a back­ground mostly work­ing in Pho­to­shop, Pro­cre­ate was an easy tran­si­tion, and it’s now my first choice for colour­ing my work.

What makes Pro­cre­ate unique or dif­fer­ent?

One of my favourite fea­tures is the time-lapse re­play. This en­ables you to watch a play­back of your process so far, and it even gives you the op­tion of ex­port­ing a video so you can share the record­ing with friends. An­other fea­ture that’s uniquely note­wor­thy is the Ap­ple Pen­cil’s sen­si­tiv­ity; I feel like it’s the most re­al­is­tic draw­ing sty­lus yet.

Would you rec­om­mend this prod­uct to a beginner?

Yes. Pro­cre­ate’s in­ter­face is clear and clean and not over­whelm­ing, and in­vites for ex­plo­ration of the pro­gram with­out a lengthy newuser tu­to­rial up-front.

What’s the one thing you’d change about Pro­cre­ate?

I still want a CMYK mode or maybe a Gamut warn­ing, be­cause I find my­self mov­ing files into an­other pro­gram to make sure the colours are ready for print. Hav­ing this op­tion would eas­ily make Pro­cre­ate a one-stop for all my il­lus­tra­tion needs. Other than this, I can’t rec­om­mend this prod­uct enough.
