Get started quickly
Whether you’re an experienced designer or drawing novice, DrawPlus makes it easy to create outstanding designs in less time. There are lots of pre-set document types including posters, greetings cards and banners, to kick start your designs. Alternatively, you can create custom projects from scratch.
DrawPlus X5’s interface is intuitive. Personalized workspace profiles and sliding tabs can be arranged to suit the way you work and customizable keyboard shortcuts make it quick to select your favorite tools. And if you need help, the ‘How To’ guides provide instant on-screen assistance, plus there’s a wealth of video and online tutorials available.
Powerful tools for drawing & painting
Use a graphics tablet or your mouse to sketch and trace designs then edit lines and apply smoothing to avoid shaky lines. If you like digital painting, there are lots of natural-looking media brushes like pencil, charcoal and pastels, as well as photo-quality paint splats, glitter, stitching, grass, fire, clouds and more. The pressure settings on your graphics tablet can be calibrated in the built-in Pressure Studio to enhance your natural drawing style.
Instantly draw common shapes then change their color, transparency, and edges or morph any shape to create amazing custom designs. Choose whether lines appear inside, outside, or behind a nominated object, making it much easier to add detail in and around any element of your design.
Design web graphics and animations
Create graphics that are optimized for the web as well as professional-quality buttons and banners with hover and click states. Assign links to different regions of an image – great for large web banners – then preview your graphic in a web browser.
With DrawPlus, you can make animations, cartoons, screensavers and more using key frame or stop frame techniques. Create animations in record time with easy-to-use key frames that automatically generate frames between key points in your animations. When you’re done, export your animation for the web as Flash®, or share as a QuickTime™ MOV, WMV or AVI video.
Transform any photo
Use dedicated tools designed to help you transform your photos – no need to switch to a standalone photo editor. DrawPlus X5 supports common file formats like JPEG, PNG and GIF as well as Adobe® Photoshop files and Microsoft HD Photo files.
The built-in PhotoLab can improve portraits with tools for red eye removal and spot repair and non-destructive adjustments, like curves and sharpen, to make your images look better than ever. The Cutout Studio makes it easy to extract people and objects from photos, ready for placing them on different backgrounds. Turn pictures into instant art using effects that recreate popular styles such as watercolor, expressionism and comic book.
The AutoTrace Studio is great for turning photos into high-quality vectors – it’s also great if you need to convert logos digitally from paper.
