Layers – Pro Edition for iPad review

Layers attempts to offer a large range of tools and options while remaining easy to use, to attract more casual designers. It’s a very attractive application with animations that replay, in adjustable speed, how a painting was created. You can also access its plentiful online gallery where you can check out the works of other artists as well as posting your own.

As for designing, it’s very easy. You can choose from two canvas sizes: 1,024 x 768 or 1,024 x 1,024. All your main tools are at the bottom of the screen, where you can work with up to five layers. There is a history menu, which helps you perform multiple undos quickly and effortlessly. You can also easily alter one of 15 available brushes.

OUR VERDICT

Best of all, just like SketchBook Pro, you can export your work as a fully editable, layered PSD file so you can work on it further on your main computer.
