It’s not particularly tough to begin using this program to its full capacity: everything is nicely laid out in the interface, with respective sections for each of the overarching functions. To begin, users can start drawing right away on the provided canvas, or they can add their own image and start annotating.

There is no shortage of drawing tools here: brushes of all sorts are freely available. Whether it is a pixel brush, pencil, marker, pen, crayon, or a custom one, there are many ways to put one’s drawing ability to use. If wielding those brushes wasn’t enough, users can utilize the shapes, as well as Bezier Curve functions for more precision in their sketches.

What’s more, making use of the Layers function will allow you to create some intricate works, allowing for multiple drawings to be meshed into one.
