Layers come standard

Add up to five layers to your drawing, and open up a whole new creative space. You can drop in a picture layer and use the eraser tool to selectively reveal the layer beneath, or create several transparent layers and draw in seprate elements of your image. You can duplicate layers, merge down, and more.

Add photos with ease...

Layers for iPad introduces a brand new photo import panel that makes it easy to add photos to your paintings. Select a photo from your iPad's photo gallery and you'll see exactly how it will appear on your canvas. You can pinch and drag the photo to adjust position and size. Get what you want, every time.

Paint, erase, smudge - It's all here.

In addition to a paint brush and eraser, Layers includes a smudge tool with adjustable texture, size, and pressure. Use any of the fifteen brushes with the smudge tool and let out your unique painting style!

Best brushes in the business..

The standard version of Layers comes with five brush styles - with the pro version, you get fifteen! We'll be adding more in future updates, too!

Offset brush tip

Layers for iPad 2.2 finally adds the much requested brush offset feature: Position the brush above your finger so it's easier to see what you're painting! [Pro Edition Only]

Full color. Full transparency.

The Layers color picker gives you easy access to a full range of colors. You can paint semi-transparent strokes and the eraser tool can be semi-transparent, too. An intuitive color picker allows you to grab any color in your existing drawing.

Eyedropper at your fingertip

A large, easy to use eyedropper allows you to select colors from your canvas. Click the eyedropper icon in the toolbar or touch and hold to activate the eyedropper at any time!

Rapidly access history.

A new history panel in Layers for iPad shows your entire undo history in one place. Select an item in the distant past and Layers jumps back through all your actions quickly!

Desktop-class undo.

Layers takes undo seriously. It's generous 30-level undo history is saved when you stop working, and you can undo (and redo) every change you make.
