SmoothDraw in Action

For our example, we decided to do some modifications to the anime picture shown below.

Working on typing some text after adding three large stars to the skyline in our picture. The text is easy to move to the location that you need it to be in for your images. The Input Text Box makes it very convenient to work with text while you are typing (nice!).


Here you can see where we decided to go back and add some very small stars to help fill out the skyline. Notice the brush size and ink flow adjustments in the left side of the window…this makes it very easy to adjust the pencils, pens, brushes, and effects to the exact size and style that you need (terrific!).

Once you have finished drawing or modifying your images, SmoothDraw can save them in the following formats.


Whether you are looking to draw free-hand or modify images, SmoothDraw can be a lot of fun for you and your family. This wonderful little program can be especially nice to have around for your children.
