I'm using the desktop version of ASP, so I don't know if there's the same thing in the iOS version, but under the Layer drop down and Layer palette, there's an option for Reference. I've selected it, but not sure what it does? It doesn't seem to do anything?

I was hoping that it would make it possible to open a reference image into a separate window (which would be something to hopefully add i the future)

Any insight would be appreciated!


Suggestions, Ideas, Bugs / ASP For Mac Separate Section?
on: January 17, 2023, 04:28:40 PM
I was wondering if it's worth having a separate section for the desktop version of ASP.

I have the desktop version and many times the IOS and Mac versions are very different. For instance, the manual is for the IOS and I have questions that aren't answered there.


Suggestions, Ideas, Bugs / ArtStudioPro Mac version

Are you still developing the Mac desktop version? Is there a v5 for desktop?

I've been playing with ArtRage and Krita (Photoshop is my main painting app) and the brushes in ArtStudioPro are much better, in my opinion, than either of those apps. I'd hate to put time in the desktop version of ASP if it's not going to be developed any longer.


Help / Pan Doesn't Stay Panned
on: May 24, 2022, 10:59:20 AM
Weird title, I know! Basically, since a document in ASP takes up the entire main window and can't really be moved, I tried panning the document area to one side so I can possible have a reference image over the area next to the panned document, but if I click anywhere after that, the panned document moves back to it's original position. Hope this makes sense.

I bought this app (desktop version) mainly for the brush engine. I mainly use Photoshop, and this looked like a good purely paint option. I think it needs some "fixes" before any new features are added. It's almost "there", but seems to fall short on some basic functionality.

That's just my two cents.


Help / Brushes disapear after I click on them
on: May 08, 2022, 08:08:46 PM

Using the Mac desktop version of ASP, when I click on a brush and start painting, the brush in the brush palette disappears. I imported some Photoshop brushes and it did it on those. Then It also happened with the brushes that come with ASP.

Any idea why that would happen?


Help / How to record painting.
on: May 08, 2022, 08:06:23 PM
I'm on the desktop version of ASP.

I've tried several times to record myself painting and the results are not what I expected. I would scroll to Canvas Recording>Recording, start painting, select Recording again. Sometimes nothing happens, sometimes I just get the stroke on the canvas but not the process of me painting it. Not sure what the finished recording is supposed to look like,. either.



Is there anyway to implement real color mixing? I came across this site and apparently, they've figured out a way to digitally mix paint as it's done with real pigments.

Here's the link to the site.



I'm sure this has been mentioned before, but it would be nice to show two open documents side by side as well as being able to open a reference image to view within the interface, rather than doing that split view which really isn't the same thing.
