What features does ArtRage Touch offer?

ArtRage Touch includes the standard range of realistic painting tools, reference and tracing image support, metallic paint, layer blend modes, and the ability to save colour samples. ArtRage Touch also offers a range of tool settings and canvas options, as well a canvas resolution up to 2048 x 2048 pixels.

It includes support for touch and stylus based devices, and works with the native Windows Modern navigation, menus and file storage options, which should be familiar and intuitive to existing users.

ArtRage Touch can open PTG files from other editions of ArtRage, and saves in the same format, so you can transfer paintings between desktop and tablets and work on the same paintings across different platforms.

Will ArtRage Touch work with Windows 8.1 desktop computers?

ArtRage Touch can be accessed as an app from the Windows Store on the metro side of Windows 8 (the Start Screen), but it is designed for a tablet environment. It works well as an inexpensive introduction to ArtRage, but does not offer the full range of features found in our desktop edition. If you are looking for a desktop program, you are also welcome to try our free demo of ArtRage 4.


ArtRage Touch can be downloaded here from the Windows App Store

The demo is free for 7 days.
