Adobe Photoshop Sketch Review

Adobe Photoshop Sketch is a compact drawing environment by Adobe. In this app with a minimalistic design, you can create multi-layer sketches on the go and export them into Photoshop or Illustrator via the Creative Cloud account. You can download Adobe Photoshop Sketch on the App Store for iOS and Google Play for Android. 

Functionality – 5/5

Adobe Photoshop Sketch app provides you with a wide range of artistic tools to implement your creative ideas on the go. Adobe integrated the excellent brush-modulating engine of Photoshop into Sketch. Along with the supports of 8K-resolution canvases, you can even make complete arts within your smartphone or tablet, send them directly to printing, and receive beautiful results. 

Design – 5/5

Adobe Photoshop Sketch latest version has a minimalistic design that seems plain at first sight. After a few minutes on the app, you will understand that it was designed to let you focus on the art more than on buttons and commands. It supports multitouch gestures, swipes, and, of course, Apple pencil for ultimate drawing and painting experience. 

Usability – 5/5

Adobe Photoshop Sketch is a full-fledged mobile digital-art studio on-the-go. The brushes feel so realistic that they can fully replace watercolors, pencils, acrylic, and oil paints. No matter what genre you like, this app will help you to implement it at its best. However, if you feel more comfortable creating on a large PC screen, feel free to share your sketches via the Creative Cloud and continue multi-layer editing on your Mac or PC. Exporting became easier than ever so that you can forget about compatibility problems. The only disadvantage of the integrated brush-library is the absence of loading extra items. It means that you can’t load custom brushes from the internet to use in Adobe Photoshop Sketch iOS and Android apps. It’s a sketching app anyway, so there’s nothing to complain about. With an immense Adobe image stock, you can modernize your arts with photo-elements and other graphic parts.

Cross-platform use – 5/5

To install Adobe Photoshop Sketch and run it smoothly, you need a tablet or smartphone with iOS 11.0, Android 6.0, or any later OS build onboard. It’s also rather RAM-demanding, so the more you have, the better. For this Adobe Photoshop Sketch review, we compared performance on 1, 2, 4, and 8GB devices and figured out that 1GB and 2GD are almost useless for convenient work if you want to use many objects at the same time.

In-app Purchases

It’s a rare case for such a company as Adobe, but free Adobe Photoshop Sketch provides you with access to the full list of features without any extra fees or subscription. You can only buy an extra 20GB CC space for $1.99/month. 

The Bottom Line

Adobe has hit the market once again. Their new sketching experience is flawless. It doesn’t require you to learn complicated software instructions and hold hundreds of commands in mind. With the 8K output, you can start projects of any size and difficulty to finish them in Photoshop or Illustrator later on.
