Natural media painting on the iPhone

by Fred Showker's latest iPhone app opens up a whole new creative space with a rich set of painting tools and the ability to create up to five layers in each drawing! Add a layer from a photo to trace your subject, or add multiple layers to separate different parts of your work. Each layer is fully transparent, and a unique 3D interface allows you to create and rearrange layers with ease. When you're finished, you can export your work to a Photoshop file with layers intact, or sync with the desktop viewer to generate a high-resolution copy or replay your brush strokes to show off your talent!

Layers offers a balanced set of painting tools that will appeal to seasoned artists and doodlers alike. With eight high-quality brushes, an eyedropper, and an eraser - Layers provides the tools you need to create great art.

Some specialists claim that the iPhone helps people to live their own way, just because they can feel free to do necessary stuff. Moreover, various cell phones present a challenge for all people.

But I can do almost as good of graphics on the iPhone as I can in Photoshop -- this program (app) is awesome ... next they need an app that does photo characters ... I know there must be an app for that!

I love the archives for Photoshop ... mainly because I'm still running a very old version of Photoshop and Illustrator. Thanks for ALL your help! Many sites let their content go dead ... or the disappear completely -- like one site that had lots of great tutorials, now is one of those spam sites... they parked the domain rather than keep the old content ... goes to show the difference between the pros like you, and the bush-league looking for a quick buck like most of the others! I love Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator!

Very strange things occur in a modern society. Modern students do not want to create research papers themselves. They prefer to use quick software solutions ... this one does a great job!
