Im not able to photoshop or insert images like I used to I no longer enjoy the app

I love this app, but have a few problems

B@d_Luck on

This app is great, and I love the amount of features that it offers! Its very intuitive and fun. And the best part is the amount of helpful features! But although procreate pocket has tons of cool features, the ipad version has some essential features that the pocket version needs. I understand not every feature can be brought over, but one of the big ones for me is the brush size saver. It is so incredibly hard to experiment with brush sizes when I’m not able to come back to the one I’ve been using. It makes my drawings come out messy if I dont stick to the same brush size.

It’s fine

AwesomenessFayeFaye on

It’s fine. Not great though and there’s free apps that are better imo. There’s no way to stabilize your lines which to me is a big issue. Even most free apps have some kind of stabilizer. When I switched from an LG to an iPhone I was excited to get to use Procreate, and now I wish that I still had access to ArtFlow instead.
