I can open both Fresco and a reference photo together on my ipad screen like I do with other painting programs, but with Fresco, I cannot see any of the palettes.
There are no tools or color wheel or anything in the Fresco UI when open with a reference photo.
What do I need to do to see the palettes?
I'm having a bit of trouble understanding what's going on... Please post a screenshot of what you're seeing so I can better understand your device/app setup and why you're not seeing Fresco's drawing tools.
I noticed the preview mode at the top. If that needs to be changed please tell me how. Home just takes me to the gallery.
Thanks for the screenshot; it was super helpful.
When you're in split screen mode and the other app is taking up too much of your screen space, Adobe Fresco automatically defaults to Preview Mode (which makes canvas tools inaccessible). So the way to "fix this" is to adjust the Fresco portion of the screen until your drawing tools reappear.
Let me know how things are going.
Thanks for the tip. Fresco was as large as I could make it when held vertically, so I turned the iPad horizontally and presto. Duh.
It would help to have a bigger iPad, but this will have to suffice.
Since I can't use Rebelle 3 on my iPad, I'm going to try to get the most out of Fresco's watercolor brush. I'ts pretty nice.
Clip Studio Paint is my go-to, but the watercolor brushes are pretty ho-hum.
Having the ability to pin a photo within the Fresco UI outside of the canvas area seems like it would be a great feature!
It is. If we're talking iPad or even Surface devices, we can open Fresco (or any graphics program) and a reference image together in split screen. Very nice.
