  • Nothing of note

SmoothDraw is a natural painting and image editing software that can produce the same quality as Painter. Support many kinds of brushes (pen, pencil, dry media, airbrush, bristle brush, image hose, etc.

"Great changes with version 4, except for two incessant bugs."

I really like the program smoothdraw. I have been using it to make math and physics videos for my classes on youtube.

I updated from version 3 to version 4 several months ago.

In the updated version there were a few things that might be nicer, a new modifiable menu at the top of the screen is the biggest, nicest change; allowing you to define commonly used pens, and switch between them easily.

But a bug was introduced... I had been using CTRL-Z for undo, quite a bit with the old version... This worked great, but now, when you use CTRL-Z to delete the last thing you've drawn in a particular color, it resets the color to white. Also, there's another issue that was introduced with the new version. If you move your pen past the region where the pen-tip-resize zone is, it will resize your pen. It used to be you had to press down on the resize region, so you wouldn't accidentally resize your pen.

Since those two issues happen every 30 seconds to five minutes, for me, it makes it much more time consuming to use. But the other features added with the new edition are quite nice.

Pros
  • Customizable Menu palette of pens, erasers, tools
  • Layers allow combination of images
  • Pressure sensitivity
  • Customizable Color Palette
  • Huge Palette to work on
  • Great for making screen-capture talks and demonstrations
Cons
  • Undo Function should not reset color to white
  • Pen size should not change on rollover.
  • Would be nice to have a straight-line tool (only free-hand is available)
  • Would be nice to be able to rotate and skew selections.
