Procreate or Fresco?

Updated: Jun 12

I have been comparing Procreate with Adobe Fresco and I must say, there are great things about both. However, after much exploration, I've chosen Adobe Fresco for my main painting program and here's why...

Why I Love Adobe Fresco:

  1. I am not limited to only using the iPad and a 12.9" screen. I can use it on a variety of computers and pressure-sensitive screen sizes - including my PC which is hooked up to a Wacom Cintiq. Thus I have the option to work on a large 24" screen or an inexpensive tablet.

  2. The Brushes! Not only are there 1000's of free brushes, but I've found that Adobe Brushes are just a little more refined for creating fine works of art. Their Mixer Brushes blend colors remarkably well. Their Live Watercolor Brushes and Oil Brushes blow me a way! And then you have their Vector Brushes, which provide the option to create vector graphics with scalability for logos and illustrations.

  3. Fresco comes with an Adobe Cloud Subscription.... and sorry as a professional and multimedia teacher, Adobe is what the professionals use. Not trying to be a snob - it's just a fact of life.

  4. The APP is Free. If you don't have an Adobe Subscription, you can still get the Fresco APP for Free. There are only a few limitations -- but not many. And if you do like the program, it's only $9.99 a month.

So there you go! That's my professional opinion....thus far.
