Adobe Fresco beta version released

Adobe's drawing application for creative artists offers a real user experience.



Adobe has promised more intuitive and efficient creative experiences for creators of moving content over the past year or two. The Premiere Rush released earlier offers video creators mobile options for creating captivating videos. Lightroom CC is ideal for photographers who want to edit image files.

But wait. There are more details of Adobe with the next Photoshop for iPad, as well as the recently released beta version of Adobe Cool for iPad.

What is Adobe Cool?

conference, but since then it has changed the name to the Fresh product. Fresco is a digital application for drawing, drawing and painting, which mimics the authentic feeling of drawing or painting on a digital device such as an iPad. The application focuses on providing artists with all the tools they would normally have at their disposal in a studio, such as different types of brush or pencil, different inks and paint, as well as digital tools such as layers and blending modes.

I was able to test the beta version of the application. I was curious to see if this application and UX was really as natural as promised. And for Adobe credit, the experience is quite good for a beta product.

Fresco Features

The application features a design very similar to the "lite" version of Photoshop or Illustrator on an iPad. The interface is intuitive and full of information about tools to guide users along the way. Different brushes and pencils are available, or you can even import any custom brush that you created or downloaded online in the application ( Figure A ).

Brushes emulate the same movements of a brush on a real canvas. Combine this with the pressure sensitivity of the Apple Pencil on your iPad, and you will not lose pace to get used to the digital workflow.

Adobe's attention to detail is remarkable with regard to flow, paint and ink type. When water color paint is used, the digital display acquires the physical characteristics of a canvas that absorbs the water-based pigment. Users will notice how the paint separates from a brush with just one touch or with a lot of pressure. It is quite magical to see it. Oil painting reacts in a more viscous way, since a rigid brush leaves thick marks on the canvas creating a texture that is only found in oil paints. Mixing paint colors in works of art is incredibly close to the experience of canvas or physical paper ( Figure B ).

Using layers

I enjoyed using layers in Fresco just as I would in Photoshop. When I am in Photoshop, I tend to create certain adjustments or manipulations so as not to destructively process an image. This also allows me to use layer masks to cover or reveal parts of my images in underlying layers. Fresco offers this functionality and works great. While on a long flight across the country, I spent some time scribbling in Fresco and used the layer capabilities to create a representation of my view of the plane's wing over the Midwest countryside ( Figure C ) .

Adobe Fresco is currently in beta, but you can request access to the beta program through Adobe . The full launch will arrive later in 2019 according to Adobe. I predict that we can see it as soon as November 4 during Adobe Max 2019.

Cool will only be available on iPads with iOS version 12.4 or higher. Specifically, the iPad Pro, third generation iPad Air, fifth and sixth generation iPad and fifth generation iPad Mini. Apple Pencil is not required, but I recommend it for an optimal user experience. Stay tuned for more information on the launch of Adobe Fresco in the coming weeks.
