Features and Highlights
Draw without distraction
A truly elegant design knows when to get out of your way. The UI stays incognito until you’re ready to snag a pencil, pen, marker, or paintbrush. Lose yourself in creativity instead of losing yourself in the menus.
Feels like drawing
Go big with a drawing engine that can handle a 100 mpx canvas while maintaining the zoomed-in feeling of traditional drawing. Professionals rely on its precision and speed, but mostly because it feels right.
Paper to digital in a snap
Your device’s camera just became a scanner. Scan Sketch imports your line art with a transparent background, ready for inking and coloring.
Available on all your devices
You carry your phone with you everywhere. Let your ideas and art ride shotgun with a SketchBook subscription.
Familiar tools in a digital space
Pencils, inks, markers, and over 190 customizable brushes that can incorporate both textures and shapes. Bonus: The exclusive Copic® Color Library beloved by illustrators.
Serious innovation (when you want it)
Use traditional rulers and ellipse guides for precise lines. Or embrace assistive wizardry with 16-sector Radial Symmetry and Predictive Stroke that smooths lines and corrects shapes. (Your secret’s safe with us.)
PSD compatible on all devices
Export your work as JPG, PNG, BMP, TIFF, and — of course — PSD. Layered PSDs are fully preserved (import and export), including layer names, groups, and blending modes.
A designer’s best friend
SketchBook for macOS is used by product designers, architects, automobiles, and industrial designers to iterate quickly and communicate their ideas.
