ArtRage has come a long way since it was a free oil paint program back in 2007, and the release of ArtRage 5 in January 2017 completes its evolution into seriously awesome painting software.

ArtRage 5 preserves the rich traditional media effects and intuitive interface that makes ArtRage unique, but brings a whole new professional level to the design and feature set. Along with improved pencil and pastel, ArtRage 5 introduces an entirely new optional interface, perspective and layout guides, custom brush creation, warp mode, layer effects, and the ability to handle multiple documents. It’s also faster and more stable than ever!


ArtRage Lite and ArtRage 4 are 50% off until the release of ArtRage 5, and all owners of older desktop versions are eligible for an upgrade discount. This allows people to secure a discount on the final price of ArtRage 5 if they own a licence before the release of ArtRage 5. More information about upgrades.

New Tools

ArtRage 5 comes with several major new editing and painting tools, including a custom brush designer, Perspective, Guides, and a much more realistic Pencil tool.

ArtRage 5 includes additional image editing effects allowing you to add highlights, dropshadows, emboss, and liquefy effects to a layer. This edition also offers improved speed and processing power, so ArtRage now performs even better at larger sizes and has more stable crash recovery.

See this page for the full list of new ArtRage 5 features.

Improved Interface

The entire interface has been redesigned to create a cleaner and more intuitive workspace. Along with a complete reworking of every icon and menu, ArtRage 5 includes the option of a sleek ‘Docking’ mode that allows you to fully customize your workspace with floating and docking panels. You can toggle the entire interface into ‘Lights Out’ which gives you dark menus and borders.

We’ve also added in workflow improvements like the ability to rotate your entire painting from the Edit menu, work with multiple documents at once, redesigned the way Transform works and better layer navigation.

Richly Realistic Traditional Media

ArtRage has always been well known for traditional media, and that hasn’t changed in ArtRage 5. The Watercolor tool still allows you perfect control over your art, and the Oils let you blend and mix as realistically as ever, but now it comes with a very natural pencil, flexible custom brush editing, and better speed!
