Conjure up eye-catching images and illustrations

OpenCanvas is one of the best crossover programs you will find when moving on from real paint brushes to digital design. The installation process takes only a few minutes, after which you can begin drawing right away. OpenCanvas features a simple friendly interface, even for first-time users. Also, note that if you're used to Photoshop, you'll find OpenCanvas extremely familiar, as it follows the same basic guidelines: a large working area with floating windows displaying tools, settings, color palette and so on.

In this latest release of Open Canvas, there are a ton of new features including a new Tool Palette, Color Sampler, Preset Manager, Grabber Control, Menu and Shortcut Key. The Tool Palette is probably the most interesting and welcome innovation. OpenCanvas 4.5 features a new elegant look with a standardized size of Tool Palette and it now supports docking, window shading and adsorbing when moving the palette. In addition, much more workspace can be used efficiently than before.

In summary, OpenCanvas lets you experiment with traditional painting while enjoying the advantages of computer design.

OpenCanvas is a graphics app that enhances the drawing and painting experience. It has extensive features great for the experienced artist, and is simple enough for artist at any level to use. OpenCanvas helps its users reproduce a range of effects on their image from its extensive tools of Pen and Brush, Layer, Filter, Selection and more.

The program newly corresponds to customizing more advanced pen types such as importing the pen nib. Moreover, the group function to merge two or more layers together was added. Additionally, there is a layer merging function that maintains transparency and a material editor for adding function for the collections such as tone. The application now also includes tools such as Find Edge, Color Halftone, and Diffuse.
