[prMac.com] San Diego, California - Produce digital masterpieces of modernist design on iOS and Android devices with the latest update to the photo effects and drawing app, Deco Sketch. Pulling inspiration from modern design and fine art techniques, Deco Sketch 1.8 delivers a unique collection of patterned brushes that allow users to enhance their personal photos or create completely original, geometric art. The app is also unparalleled in its ability to instantly sample colors from images being sketched over and then applying the chosen color to the geometric design being drawn. Whether a professional creative or talented hobbyist, Deco Sketch leads the way in a revolution that's redefining the artistic limitations of iPhoneography.
Featuring a variety of preset and customizable brushes, Deco Sketch allows artists to easily edit their own photographs or design new, beautiful images through the manipulation of geometric patterns. Deco Sketch is simple to use in that the flow, opacity, size, angle, and position of the drawn strokes are determined by simple finger swipes and taps. Features such as zoom and pan, undo and redo help achieve exact precision with detailed placements. Furthermore, individuals can even print their creations quickly and precisely due to the app's high-resolution output capabilities up to 8 megapixels.
"Deco Sketch is mobile artistry for the geometrically obsessed," said Ben Guerrette, creator of Deco Sketch. "With a market oversaturated with filer apps, users yearn for something fresh and unique. Deco Sketch fill that void in a fashion that offers almost unlimited creative opportunities. Deco Sketch is a professional grade tool that is easily accessible to both skilled and casual artists.
