Symmetry, Transform Tool: Use the transform tool or activate symmetry to mirror what you draw on one side of the canvas to the other side.
Double Puck: This tool, which controls the brush size, type, opacity, and color, is one of the best in SketchBook's arsenal. Drag left or right from the center to ad- just the size of your brush; drag up or down to adjust the opacity of the brush. Select the bottom puck to adjust color; drag left or right for saturation, drag up or down for brightness.
Brush Editor: Select, tweak , and store your favorite brushes. Press the brush icon to access all brushes, swipe up and down to scroll through different sets: Basic (Favorites), Synthetic Paint, Smudge, Fine Art, Texture, Shape, Splatter, and Halftone. You can also control Hardness, Radius, Opacity, Spacing and Rotation. If you have a pressure-sensitive stylus, you may tinker with it here to make it to your liking. (Be sure to turn on your pressure-sensitive stylus in preferences first.) Color Editor: Press the color icon to access the color wheel or to use the Copic marker color palette. Use the color wheel to find the right hue; use the center diamond to adjust saturation and brightness.
Layer Icon: Add photos, use the camera, or add a built-in template with the layer editor. You can reorder layers, control opacity, and change blend modes. Lock layer transparency gives you the option of recoloring only the active pixels on a layer.
