  1. I've been working with the ipad version for a while and now I want to spend some time with the Mac version. One of the first things I notice is that the pad on my Macbook is imprecise. Would a mouse work better or are there better options? Thanks.

    Layer Question

    Layer Question

    Let’s say you have 16 layers and each layer is divided into a pattern of 16 squares. Each layer has a red square in one of the 16 locations. Each location is represented only once. The remaining 15 locations on each layer are empty. With all layers visible, would you see a solid red field? Would it appear the same as if you had only one layer with all 16 positions filled with red? Thanks.

    Image Clarity

    In general, will an image look brighter and sharper when viewed on the ipad as opposed to looking at the printed matte image? If printed on glossy paper, will it look closer to the ipad image? Thanks.

    Printing Issue

    I just completed a couple of composite photo projects. They look great on the ipad. But when I printed, they came out quite dark and lacked detail. Has anyone else had this issue? Thanks.

    Lost Files

    UPDATE: Apparently, when you use “Save”, AP saves it to a created folder it names “Photo”. When you use “Save A Copy” DO NOT save to that folder.

    Lost Files

    Ok, thanks. I ran a test. I created a new document with 2 layers. I saved it twice using “Save” and “Save a Copy”. Curiously, both were saved in the same location. I deleted and reloaded the app. Both saves were gone. What should I try next?

    When you use “Save A Copy” are the layers preserved?

    Lost Files

    I have an ipad air 2. The new upgrade of AP has been running somewhat slowly so I decided to delete and reload the app. After the reload, my files were gone (only 2). I didn’t expect to see them in the app but they had been saved to my ipad. Why or how could they disappear from my ipad? Thanks.
  10. In the image below, the tower is tilted backwards a bit. I would like to get it to standup more straight. I’ve been playing with Perspective but to no avail. Do I need to keep playing with Perspective or should I try something else? Thanks. Hmmm, no image. I keep getting a -200 error.
  11. I have an ipad air 2 and, in general, 1.7 AP is noticeably slower. It will be fixed soon, I hope.

    Can you import png photos into AP? Is there any special method to use them? Thanks.
  14. I’ve been playing with the grow/shrink and outline tools in an attempt to cleanup the edges of a selection. They seem to have similar capabilities. For what purposes is each best at. Thanks.
  15. With regard to using the smooth selection tool, what is actually happening as you change the radius? Thanks.
