Join Justin Seeley for an in-depth discussion in this video Explore the Adobe Draw interface, part of Adobe Mobile Apps For Designers.
- [Voiceover] This next chapter is all about Adobe Draw. Adobe Draw is an application that is pretty much the successor to one of the most popular Adobe mobile apps that was ever created, which was called Adobe Ideas, which was a vector drawing app that was available for the iPad a few years back. Adobe Draw incorporates a lot of the same features that the Adobe Ideas application did, but it also adds some new features as well. Let's go ahead and tap on Adobe Draw to launch it up. And when you first launch up Adobe Draw, if you have any projects in here, like for instance, I have these sketches I've been doing of old action figures that I collect, and you'll see all of the projects that you have available to you right here inside of the application.
You can also swipe over here and you can see some of the community drawings that are available for you to look at, so you can get some inspiration and check out some of the things that other people are creating using this exact same application. Just scroll back over using your finger and you'll be right back to where you started. On the far left hand side, you will be able to add a new project by tapping on the big plus sign. It's the big bar in the middle. When you do that it creates a brand new document for you and automatically jumps you into the document. Inside of the document window you have several things going on. On the far left side are all of your tools. These are pre set up before you get in here, so you don't have to do anything with them, necessarily, you can just start using them right away. There are; however, some controls to these things on the left, and we'll get into those a little bit later.
Across the top you'll see other tools that are available to you, like an undo button, the shapes button. You can also add layers to your composition. Then we have the share button which allows you to publish your work to Behance copy the image to the My Files section of Creative Cloud, or you can send this piece of artwork to Photoshop CC or Illustrator CC. You can also copy this image to the Clipboard and then paste the image over into another application like Photoshop Sketch, for instance. Any time you want to get out of these little dialogue boxes just tap away from them.
You can also click the settings icon up here at the top, so you can turn on shape snapping, you can set the degrees to which they snap. You can add grids and rotate the canvas at well. You can close that by tapping away. On the far right hand side is full screen mode, which basically gets rid of all of the tools and the interface and allows you to just simply start drawing. If you want to get out of this mode tap in the top right hand corner again, takes you right back out. If you want to close a project tap close in the top left hand corner. That's going to take you back out to the main screen. Over here on the left hand side at the very bottom you see those four little squares? This is where you can go to change the look of all of the projects and how they're laid out in the initial view of Adobe Draw.
I like this version better because it gives me a bird's eye view of everything and allows me to see all of them in one place, as opposed to just thumbing through all of the projects to get to the one that I want. In the top left hand corner you have the settings section, where you can go in and adjust the account you're signed in as, view your current storage, look up different ideas and tutorials and you can also download more apps or give Adobe feedback as well. Tapping away from that will close it and takes you right back into Draw. As you can see, the interface here, not all that complicated, so now that we have a good understanding of what everything is and where it is, we're ready to start actually drawing.
