3 Most Recommended Graphic Design Softwares and Tools


Are you into graphic design? In this technology-driven era, there are a lot of innovations to make the process of designing easier. There are more tools than ever now to cater to your designing needs. If you have been thinking of exploring your choices, try one of our recommendations compiled in this article.


1. Procreate

Who has not heard about Procreate? Aside from Adobe products, Procreate is most likely one of the most popular designing tool/software today. This popularity of course explains how good the features of this software are. Unfortunately, this tool is only available for the iPad. It can help in illustrating anything, even all the way to animation as well. You can even save the projects that you make in the format of .psd and .pdf, making it integrated with Adobe software for further designing process. To best use this tool, you need an Apple Pencil that is sold separately from the iPad itself. For some people, this is a costly alternative since you need to pay about $9.99. However, it is a one-time payment for lifetime access.


2. Clip Studio Paint

Clip Studio Paint is another alternative that you can choose if you do not have access to Apple products like the iPad. This is an option that is more affordable, however, does not sacrifice the quality it offers. Clip Studio Paint can use both bitmap and pixel, so you can adjust the settings to your needs. This software is available for Mac and PC. You can even have its free trial on iPad for 6 months before deciding to make a purchase or no.


3. Adobe Photoshop

When it comes to graphic design tools, of course, we cannot leave out Adobe Photoshop. For a long time, Adobe Photoshop has been many people's choice for designing. Even among new competitions, Adobe Photoshop's features are still leading with its 2D and 3D image manipulation, video editing, and more. It is still very much a good option that you can get today, and it is still quite affordable as well.


When talking about software or tool, we also cannot leave out the options for hardware that you can use for graphic designing. Depending on your preferences, a PC or tablet can be your choice.


Many people use the iPad nowadays because it is a very handy option. Not only that it is easy to use, but you can also bring an iPad anywhere and work from any places you want.


Of course, as mentioned before, the iPad is not always within the budget of everyone. So, choosing a cheaper tablet like Wacom can be a good choice. Wacom can be connected to your PC or laptop, and you can still bring it to places if you want.


For Windows, there are more software options compared to iOS or MacOS. This is also worth pondering.


So, what you need to do is know which tool meets your requirement and save up to get the hardware that can give you access to the desired software for your work.
