In here it says… mac 10.18. I assume is Mac 10.8
linux-rules Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2017  Hobbyist Artist
hey! I need your help. do you know the official icon of the app? I mean, I know the logo, but I don't know if it is the same icon when you launch the program. So, the part that is not the wordmark here:… is the icon of the app when it is launched in the dock/task bar?

Thank you!

Hello everyone! I recently bought ArtRage and I'm looking forward to learning how to use it! It seems really daunting and I can't figure out how to do some simple things, like blend colors... but I'm slowly learning ^-^ Can't wait to see what you all draw!

What are you having troubles with?

I have a question, I'm thinking about using ArtRage, but I am stuck on a Chromebook, is the software comparable with Chromebook?

A question: How can I get/ export an image without a background in ArtRage 4?
Bertrood Featured By Owner May 12, 2016
Hi. To the best of my knowledge you could turn the opacity slider to 0% in the Canvas Settings box or you can use the 'cel' setting for the canvas: (canvas settings > special > cel). You can then export a file that supports transparency/alpha such as PSD or PNG. Hope that helps.
TheStarlightPrincess Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
A question: Does ArtRage 4 has something like stabilizer to make smooth lines? I have a problem it's very hard to get smooth lines in it and it's really time taking to just change the settings all the time.
aevrynn Featured By Owner May 4, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Sit jos laittaa lyikkärin "precise" moodiin ni siinäki on smoothing.
TheStarlightPrincess Featured By Owner May 4, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Aa kiva tietää. ^^ En oo pahasti käyttäny lyijärii, lähinnä sitä vaan värikynänä. Tuppaan tekemään noi hahmottelutkin aina tussilla. ^^;
Bertrood Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2016
The Ink Pen tool has a smoothing slider option in its setting window which can help smooth lines to varying degrees depending on its setting. Other than that, none of the other tools have such an option :(
TheStarlightPrincess Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
I see. That's pity. :/ Maybe ArtRage could someday have an update to which would fix that thing or something...Pray
Thank you for telling anyway. :)
aevrynn Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Hey, what happened to the monthly contest? Can't find the journals anywhere, at least. Are you going to continue them at some point?

And the actual reason I came here is that I noticed there are files named filename_GenA.ptgback, can I delete them or are they somehow important?
Bertrood Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2016
The file you referred to is a backup file. If the 'Store Backup Files' option is turned in your ArtRage settings/preferences, a backup file will be saved when you save your document again. When it saves, the previous save becomes the backup and a new save is created. If you have the number of back up set to a higher value than 1 it will save that many incremental back ups as you start to save the file more often. Hope that makes sense :)
aevrynn Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh, okay. I just hadn't noticed any earlier so was confused. :P Thanks for the info. Is this group completely dead?

:baffled: A quick question: Is it possible to achieve the blend mode Darken with the Sticker Spray tool playing with the Spray Variation settings like hue, luminosity, saturation or any other available within the tool?

I wanted to bring some of the Real Blending mode abilities to the Sticker Spray tool and, the Darken mode works quite well for most cases for blending the colors and, avoiding that gray when you’re trying to blend two opposite colors of the color wheel.

I was playing with the Spray Variation settings with not much success and, before I give up for good, I thought I would better ask the ‘source’. So, is it possible to achieve blending modes with the setting and, if yes, what would be the settings for the Darken mode or some of the most common blending modes like Multiply, Overlay etc. A tutorial with these settings would be much appreciated.

:netlove v.3 I’m enjoying using Artrage and, I believe the Real Blending mode is one of the strongest features of Artrage. I thank you in advance and, thank you the lovely program.

You may get a faster reply at the official forums or even by emailing them at I actually haven't used the blending layer modes yet otherwise I would totally chip in. Are you having trouble where you don't have something as dark as you'd like? 
digit-Ds Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2016
Da Vinci Fella (Artists) It’s unfortunate that Artrage’s Sticker Spray tool don’t support brush blending modes. The desktop Artrage’s Color Option Real Blending mode is one of its strongest features but, alas the Sticker Spray don’t support that feature. It’s when you’re trying to blend two colors opposite on the color wheel like yellow and, it’s opposite blue with the normal brush blending mode you’ll get something like a dirt gray or one color stronger than the other but, with the Darken mode you’ll get something much closer to the natural media blend results, a green. Some other blending modes produce also good results. It’s not only of just to make it darker.

I’m not sure if it is possible to simulate blending modes with the Sticker Spray Variation settings. The more I’m playing with the setting, the more doubtful I become. But, thank you for the helpful suggestions and, for noticing my question note.
