Do I need a drawing program?
Yes--since Astropad acts like a graphics tablet, it only works as such with a drawing program. To utilize its features, you will need to open a drawing program on your Mac.
There are many options to choose from! Here are some programs to consider:
- Sketchbook: free!
- Mischief: free and pro versions, and is vector-based
- Pixelmator: has photo editing and drawing
- Affinity Designer: has both drawing and vector capabilities
- Clip Studio: standard and full-feature versions
- Adobe Photoshop: paid, monthly subscription
