We already mentioned here briefly Adobe's Gemini project, which promised to lead to expertise from the software giant to a painting and drawing app for iPads. For today your day, my dear digital artists: the company revealed the definitive name of the app, Fresh, and shared more details about it.
The name of the app already says more or less how it will work: Adobe is relying on fresco technique, which consists of applying diluted paint on a fresh layer of plaster or mortar, favoring the fixation of pigments. We often see frescoes on the walls, ceilings and murals of large historical buildings. Just think of Renaissance painters such as Michelangelo and his Adoption Creation.
To make its digital inks behave in much the same way as it does in real life, Adobe is clear using good doses of Sensei, its artificial intelligence robot. With this, the company created the Live brusheswhere the pigments will behave much more naturally and realistically; By painting a section of red and an adjacent section of yellow, for example, you can see the edges of the sections interacting and forming an orange tint.
Fresco will be available for iPads, focusing on users with Apple Pencils (or Logitech Crayons). In addition to the app's default brushes, users will be able to download different options from a repository and even import the ones they already use in Photoshop; The app will of course have all the common tools for drawing and painting such as layers, masks, selection, shape editing and more.
Adobe has not yet revealed what the app's marketing scheme will be; all of its tools are expected to be made available to Creative Cloud subscribers, but the company said that “everyone with the right hardware will be able to draw and paint with Fresco for free” which may signal that the app is free and can be an indication that the company only releases some resources for free.
For now, let's wait.
