Powerful retouching. At a touch.

Sketch in action.

Sketch gives you drawing tools that interact naturally with the canvas, including a graphite pencil, ink pen and blending markers. Built-in brushes open up even more creative possibilities. Use Split View to keep your drawings and toolbox side by side on the same screen. Then send your sketches directly to desktop Photoshop to take them to the next level.

Drawing

Sketch with tools that behave like the real thing — pencils, pens, markers, erasers and customised brushes. Use blend modes to draw on top of existing brush strokes and create natural colour changes. Try out the watercolour brush on your iPad Air, mini or Pro.

Edit and adjust

Behance integration

Work with large files

Send to Illustrator and Photoshop

Send sketches to Adobe Illustrator to scale your work up to 4x for high-resolution printing. Or send them to Photoshop as layered PSD files with the drawing, the paper background and the images all on separate layers so you can easily isolate your artwork.

Customised brushes

Create without limits using brushes made in Adobe Capture. You can turn any photo into a brush for Sketch. You can also launch Capture from within the app, create a new brush and have it immediately appear in your Sketch toolbar.
