What's New

Remember how we've been saying there's a massive update coming? It's finally here. This is it. There's a huge selection of your most requested features and we've made phenomenal speed and stability improvements. Hit that update button, kick back, and dive into stuff that will melt your face off.

- Layer Groups
This is too exciting to joke about. You can now group layers. Groups give you new ways to organize your layers in tidy, satisfying ways. If you really like groups, why not add a group to your group of groups? Groups.

- PSD Import
Yep, you read that right. Import. Directly import your PSD files with layers and everything. The paintings you painstakingly made in Adobe® Photoshop® are no longer dead to you.

- Live Broadcast
Have you ever had to awkwardly hold a camera so you can show everyone how you Procreate? No more! With the touch of a button, you can broadcast your creative process live through your favourite streaming service.

- Screen Capture
Record your entire Procreate screen and export it for later or share it straight away. Include your iPad's camera and microphone to add face and face noises.

- Layer Locking
Keep your artwork safe by locking layers or Groups to prevent them being modified or deleted.

- Multiple Layer Select
Swipe layers or Groups to select as many as you like, then delete or move all selected layers at once.

- Multiple Layer Transform
Why transform alone when you can move, scale, shear, and distort multiple layers at once? Too many single operations and you'll go blind.

- Keyboard Shortcuts
Connect your keyboard and use many of the industry standard shortcuts you're used to. Now you can access Procreate's advanced features faster than ever before.

- Massive Brushes
You can now increase your max brush size to a gargantuan 1600%. Perfect for those of you that want to paint your entire canvas in single brush stroke.

- Color Wheel
We used to give you equal amounts of all colors, but it turns out that's bad for painting. Now there's lots more yellow and orange in your hue ring.

- Rapid Undo & Redo
Now you can fix your mistakes quicker than you make them. Just hold your fingers on the canvas to continuously Undo or Redo until you lift off again.

We'd like to take a moment to thank all of you for sharing your gorgeous artwork with us. Seeing your work inspires us to create software that's just as beautiful. If you have a moment please share your experience by leaving a short review on the App Store. Import some PSDs, make some layer groups, and have a fantastic holiday season.
