Procreate is a multi-award winning painting app designed for creative professionals. Made exclusively for iPad, Procreate allows you to create beautiful sketches, inspiring paintings, and stunning illustrations wherever you are.
You've never drawn like this before. As soon as your Apple Pencil meets the iPad Pro screen, you'll forget that you're painting on a computer. Each and every brush stroke you make is rendered with a speed and accuracy that is unmatched in the creative industry. With the gorgeous interface and game-changing painting engine, its easy to see why Procreate is the leading choice for illustrators everywhere.
When you open the Procreate brush library, you'll see over a hundred handcrafted tools, from pencils and paint brushes to spray paints and pastels. However, Procreate’s brushes aren't just limited to traditional tools. Thanks to the groundbreaking dual-texture Procreate brush system, you'll find completely new and wonderful pure digital brushes: like the Light Brush, which paints with an incredible radiant glow; or the wickedly fun Triangulum brush, with twisted shading that adds another dimension to your canvas.
When you modify or create a custom brush in Procreate, you're using the same development tools used to make all of Procreate's brushes. With one tap, you can pop the hood on a brush and change any setting you like; or start fresh, and make your very own Procreate brush. You can organize your brushes into sets or even share your custom brushes with other artists. Thousands of people already have.
Procreate has everything you need to create breathtaking artworks. No, it really does. We’ve packed it full of essential tools, including 64-bit color, fully customizable brushes, massive canvas resolutions, an advanced layer system, and beautiful cinema quality effects. We made Procreate so you can paint anything you want, anywhere you are.
How do you get the speed and efficiency of keyboard shortcuts without a keyboard? With something even better – multi-touch gestures. Powerful and intuitive gestures like pinch to zoom and two finger tap to Undo speed up your creative workflow immeasurably. Combined with other advanced Procreate gestures like QuickLine, ColorDrop, and QuickMenu, you'll see why Procreate has become the gold standard for creative interaction on iPad.
Thanks to the graphically accelerated Silica M painting engine, Procreate always paints in gorgeous 64-bit color (that's equivalent to 16-bit for desktop artists). The best part is that Procreate also paints incredibly fast, even when in you're in the P3 Wide Colour gamut. Up to 120 frames per second fast. With amazing performance and rich color depth, you can finally have your cake and eat it.
With Procreate you can create astonishingly rich and detailed artworks on iPad. Procreate can create canvases up to an incredible 16K in one direction. With this kind of resolution you can create massive prints of your artwork, integrate Procreate into a professional workflow, and have the security of knowing you can work on any project without being stuck at your desk.
iOS11 is huge. This is probably the biggest thing to happen to iPad, and it's going to change how you work with Procreate forever. If you need to grab a custom brush from the web, just drag it into Procreate. Need to quickly email a layer? No sweat, just drag the layer straight off your canvas and into Mail. Need to back up your work? Grab all your artworks from the Gallery and drop them into your favorite cloud service.
This is how you'll first meet Procreate. Your Gallery shows you all of your artworks, and it’s where you’ll start every new piece. This brand new Gallery allows you to manage thousands of artworks with ease thanks to exceptional performance and the flexibility of Stacks. Group up your artwork into Stacks to stay organized, and use bulk actions to Share, Duplicate, or Delete multiple artworks all at once. Of course, this new gallery also works hand in hand with the iOS 11 Files app, so you can Drag and Drop artworks for an even faster workflow.
Procreate paints fast. Really fast. For years, Procreate has set the bar for performance in creative applications with Silica, Procreate’s exceptionally fluid drawing and painting engine. So how do you improve on already industry-leading performance? Meet Silica M, the next-generation painting engine built with technologies like Metal 2, Swift 4, and Accelerate. Silica M has been designed to extract the full power of iPad to provide creative professionals with incredible color depth, fluid and accurate painting, and more performance than ever before.
With Procreate, you really get the most out of your Apple Pencil. No other product uses the sensors inside Apple Pencil to the same depth and complexity, or offers as much customization and control. You have the power to fully adjust every Apple Pencil technology on every single Procreate brush. You can modify exactly when tilt shading should kick in, or exactly how much expression you want from pressure. And if you're not into customizing brushes, don't worry: all 136 included brushes are fully optimized to take advantage of your Apple Pencil, straight out of the box.
We designed Procreate’s perspective tools for environmental artists, but they make anyone feel like a pro. Once you've set up your guide in one, two, or three-point perspective, you can immediately start by following your guide freehand; but that's not the best part. The power really kicks in when you turn on Perspective Assist. Now your strokes automatically snap to your guides for perfect perspective, almost like magic. Except it’s not. It's an exclusive software feature that'll save you a bunch of time and have you creating perfect perspective environments. Which is nearly as cool as magic.
Every time you create an artwork, Procreate will make a beautiful Time-lapse video showing your progress from concept to completion. You don't need to enable anything, or set up complex preferences: it all just works out of the box. Simply paint, and at any time you can watch a time-lapse Replay of your entire painting coming to life from a sketch to finished piece. You can even export and share your Time-lapse video to places like YouTube and Instagram right from Procreate. And now with options for 4K quality or HEVC, you can create production-quality videos just by doing what you do.
Procreate is the winner of a prestigious Apple Design Award, recognizing the technical, aesthetic, and creative excellence of the product. Winning an amazing design award like this is a reflection of the heart, thought, and dedication that continues to go into every aspect of Procreate.
