This new app is too complicated. The brushes are not the same. Many people have been relying on the old app for business/ university purposes - also half way through project which countless hours of effort has been put in to with no way of continuing because the brushes aren't the same.
Not giving a warning as you open the app, and not transferring everything that was there over the new app has ruined any chance of users of the old app enjoying and embracing your new product.
Just revive the old app. Please.
I agree Fresco is way more complicated, part of the reason for that is many users keep asking for all the features of other apps to be added to Fresco. It used to be a much better app and had a totally different audience it was originally targeted towards.
There has been plenty of warning that Sketch/Draw were to be discontinued, and each time you opened the apps they had a link into Fresco. My thoughts are that people saw how different it was to the app of their choice so did not switch in a timely manner. If your images have not all transferred across I would suggest you contact the Development team directly through the app under App Settings > Help > Report a Bug.
The majority of people helping out on this forum are users ourselves, we don't work for Adobe and have no control over what they do with the apps they bring out or if they keep them running.
With regards to the brushes head on over to the Fresco UserVoice pages (also available through the Help section under Suggest a Feature) and add comments to the many others who want Fresco to replicate their Sketch/Draw experience with identical brushes.
Sorry to hear about your experience.
If your files didn't migrate to Fresco, you may try to locate your files on this website https://adobe.ly/3eoSI3p. If you can locate them, I would suggest you check out this video (https://bit.ly/3qfAz0Q). In this video, there are four methods to save your artwork, the first method will not work now, but you may try the rest three methods. I hope it helps!
If you are still unable to locate/ recover your files and Sketch & Draw is installed on your device, then send me a DM. To send a DM, click my picture and use the message button.
I agree! Bring back Adobe Sketch and Adobe Draw. These programs were both simple but powerful and great useful tools and creativity jump starters for my students. I have been teaching art since 2004. I loved usinf and teaching Adobe Draw and Sketch. They amasre also simplified and a alternative to Photoshop and Illustrator for some of my students in special Ed and who needed simplified programs. My son who is six was also very excited to come home and spend time using Adobe Draw instead of doing other less creative activities. I thought it was great to see Adobe creating a future of artist using their products and I don't see that anymore without these programs. Both of them were very useful in there different ways and it was a shame to see both of those programs gone now. Bring them back! Students loved them!
Specially for android users!! Why the hell would you drop support for a useful app without any substitute??
Yeahh!! Put back Adobe Draw in the store
Yes this totally sucks, I loved the old version, Fresco is too complicated and yes the brushes are not the same. Why not just have a older level etc. this has destroyed my creativity!
I don't think it is as simple as just turning the switch back to on with those apps. You have to bring manpower to those apps, so they can keep them compliant with whatever needs the OS has with those apps. I was never a fan of Sketch or Draw, and prefer Fresco, but it's not a simple solution.
I agree, I have been using Adobe Sketch since 2018 and have three brushes that I use, the thick acrylic brush (which Fresco doesn't have), the soft pastel brush and the ink brush (which look wildly different on Fresco). Please bring back the app-- I have been on Fresco for weeks trying my best to find and customize my brushes so that they may look remotely like the brushes I have built my work around, but I just don't see a possibility. Keeping the app would be the best option but if not, at least bring all the Sketch brushes to Fresco as they are.
