  • It’s great!

    Great integration with other adobe apps through the cloud. A really nice way to quickly add a touch of more organic design to any adobe project.
  • No comparison

    .... I say this because I started with their prior program. I would tell you don't need tolook anywhere else. This program is where it's at. *** I do have a suggestion and I didn't know where else to suggest. Perhaps the layer we are working on or want to work on it could show color highlight maybe. Just a way to see what layer your working on. *** Thanks for such a great program. I'm always very excited when I find out the next thing you add.
  • Not disappointing

    Okay so I absolutely loved adobe draw and sketch, so I was a little skeptical about moving to fresco. Adobe’s advertising for this app is admittedly a little bit weird, but actually using the app is amazing. It combines the best of adobe draw with the best of adobe sketch as well as some new features that make both of those amazing. It’s not really a “painting” app, so fresco is a little bit of a weird name for it. But it’s fantastic, 10/10.
  • Best yet I love this

    By La neige
    I hated that adobe draw didn’t blend. But with these live brushes the effect is fantastic. I always wanted a Corel paint experience on my iPad. I use this with the Apple Pencil and a textured screen protector like elecom. The effect is life improving. I use it to do no mess sketching to practice drawing and sighting. I have tailored the sensitivity to feel like my favorite pencils You can use this to paint photos or to draw or trace. It has actual layered vector export (pdf) and raster (psd) so you can go between hand touches to things that are more easily done on a computer.
  • Pixel brushes are not very good

    By Marty.w.c
    I would love to rate it 5 star, because it is an amazing app, but the pixel brushes should be more like adobe sketch. It’s too pixly and it’s hard to draw precisely without the vector brushes, which is not my thing, and you can’t import drawings without them being so pixly you can barely see them so, please fix the pixel brushes

    Where are they??? This app has been out for ages and you’ve deprecated Draw, so where are the gridlines? This is such a basic feature request, I can’t believe I’m still making it through the App Store and Adobe feedback. I can’t use Fresco for my work until you add gridlines, so I’m getting pretty sick of opening the app to see if you’ve updated it and being continually disappointed. I’m not giving up Draw until you deal with this. CC subscriber
  • Amazing app

    By Lilogala
    I absolutely love this app I also love how many brushes there are and how many tutorials there are also. This is an amazing app and it feels like you are actually painting/drawing.
  • Freezes On ID authentication

    By MonkeyPencil
    For a company that squeezes every last penny from artists, you’d think they wouldnt have prpblems like this; I cant even access the software, because its stuck trying to log on with adone ID.
  • Please add a text application!!!

    By 🔪peach girl🍑
    I love this app a lot and it has a really good quality to the art I make. I am a comic artist and I would really love there to be some kind of “add text” application thing to help speed up my upload process and just to generally add text without ruining my art. I have to us a whole different app to add text but it isn’t the same. Please add it! 😭
  • Amazing

    I am a professional artist, and usually use adobe on the computer. This takes the best parts of adobe and iPad drawing apps to make this. Love!
