Suggestions, Ideas, Bugs / Wet paint + layers (iOS)
« Last post by estux on July 15, 2018, 04:11:53 PM »

in Photoshop the mixer brush (wet paint) has a “sample all layers” option so the wet brush can pick color from the layers behind the current layer. I can not find this option in Artstudio Pro, does the app support this feature? At least it should work like the smudge tool in a transparent layer.

I have moved today from Procreate because the limit on the number of layers, having unlimited layers is really great, but I need this feature to keep using my workflow.
I read this idea mentioned in an old thread and wanted to see if it was still on your radar. I think this would be a fantastic improvement to the color toolbar for quick color selection and hope to see it in the program!

I imagine it as three vertical sliders for hue, saturation, and value, stacked vertically in the toolbar. I created a mock-up image with the HSB Color Toolbar to make sure the idea is clear.

Thanks for considering this feature!
Hi, I often use Apple notes to sketch in and then like to take the drawings further in Art Studio Pro. However, it is tricky to import them. I’m on an iPad Pro, and open the two apps in split screen. I then tried dragging the image from notes into art studio Pro’s main window, with no documents currently open. It looked like it was about to work, because it popped up a message that says “opening “item”,” but then nothing happens. I also tried dragging it into the documents screen, which does nothing, and tried dragging it onto an open document (which I would expect to import it as a layer) which also did nothing.
I’ve also tried using the copy command in Apple notes to put the image in the clipboard and then tried pasting it in art studio pro via edit- paste. But paste is grayed out. I also tried making a new document thinking that it would have the option to use the clipboard dimensions, but clipboard was grayed out there too.
If you first drag the image from notes into the files app, you can then drag it into art studio, but not into the documents screen. It would be great if more of these methods just worked. I hope you can look into this, and thank you so much for making a great app!
Suggestions, Ideas, Bugs / Close the top pop-up window

It'd be very useful if upon selecting an option (in a single select settings) the top window close, and one wouldn't have to click outside to close it.

Really good to hear.

I hope you don’t get bored with people saying how much they like your App, and how much they appreciate your frequent adjustments and improvements - as well as your genuine response to what users think.
Very refreshing I think.
Suggestions, Ideas, Bugs / How to create a brush?
« Last post by TinyDogWorks on July 14, 2018, 06:32:08 AM »

I learned to make brushes in Adobe and also the old version of ArtStudio, but can’t seem to master it in the Pro version.  For example, I want to make brushes that will create parallel lines that curve, as if I were dragging a rake through the sand.  I make several stacked circles and export as a brush, but when I go to use the brush, it simply draws a square shape: no separate lines or even circle shapes.

Can anyone talk me through this step by step?  Or post a good tutorial about how to use brushes?

Suggestions, Ideas, Bugs / Brush stroke stuttering
« Last post by Verehin on July 13, 2018, 02:41:37 PM »
Hello, LOVE this app so much, but the thing that destroys experience for me is that I m not able to put a lot of fast strokes to not lose some of them. So, like 70 percent of strokes would be fine, others would be shorter, some be just dots. Happens when u pain fast.
I dont have this in other apps. iPad Pro

Suggestions, Ideas, Bugs / Brush size and other observations (desktop app)
« Last post by boxy on July 13, 2018, 01:28:26 AM »
I just bought Artstudio Pro desktop after being blown away by ASP for iPad. I was a big fan of ArtStudio anyway, but with pro finally comes an app which makes me genuinely prefer working on the iPad than a computer, amazing work.

And from there, the performance of large brush sizes in ASP desktop is phenomenal when compared to most other apps. Painting big washes in real time and print size canvases is a pleasure now. I also love the seamless integration with the iPad version as well as seamless Photoshop brush import. Again, an amazing painting app.

I emailed you about my main topic and you graciously said you'd consider adding the feature, but having used the commercial desktop version for a few days, I realise why the feature is quite important for me. In many apps (but not photoshop) you can set up a wacom pen button to drag left/right to increase/decrease brush size on the fly. I change brush size a lot as in many cases it is preferred to making a single brush's minimum size = 0 and trying to control size with pressure. Being able to do this ensures that your workflow is not broken at all and for me is the best way to resize a brush while keeping the flow. The 3 options we currently have in Artstudio Pro require that you do break your workflow:

1. Keyboard [] are situated far right of the kb. It is more productive for right handed users to have the left hand poised around the modifier/undo/select all/copy/cut area of the keyboard, so in order to change brush size by keys, I need to break workflow and look down. This also leads to a secondary request for custom keyboard shortcuts as there seems no way to change the arrangement currently.

2. UI brush size slider - is positioned above far left of the canvas which is great to have but also requires a break in the workflow. In the absence of a button click drag option, bringing up a modifier button/click resize slider at the cursor's current position would be less distracting.

3. Using the Wacom tablet's touch ring also requires either ditching the keyboard in order to hover over the ring which is counter productive, or breaking workflow to locate the ring with either hand.

I know it seems like I've thought way too much about such a tiny feature in such an otherwise massively impressive app, but once you've had that click drag resize, anything else feels like a step backwards.

Another minor point is the floating colour panel. I'd love to see a cut down version without swatches which will persistently dock to the right hand side of the UI along with layers etc so it is saved with launch prefs. I think the number fields could be made smaller or rearranged to accommodate a narrower panel which would therefore fit. In addition a contextual popup colour picker at cursor position is often useful.

Sorry for the long post about pretty minor things, but for me at least, they'd make a difference to the workflow, though I openly admit this app is not solely designed for me. :D

Cudos to Lucky Clan for creating such a stand out painting app in a crowded market. I absolutely love it!
