Vector drawing and image editing (discontinued).

DrawIt is an easy-to-use, powerful image editing and drawing application designed for the Mac. It features entirely non-destructive editing, live filters, powerful vector tools, a standard collection of basic shapes and also a clear and intuitive interface

Out of the box, DrawIt includes a large number of ready-to-use and easily customizable special shapes; circles, stars, rounded rectangles and polygons, as well as support for an unlimited number of nested groups, masks and custom overlays

I want to add a comment about tech support. I do not own this program, but I asked the author for some technical assistance. I was given far more support than I would have imagined, and for free. I don't think it was just to make a sale; I honestly got a sense that the author is simply helpful. I think that speaks very highly of both the author and the program.

DrawIt is a great software. It also works well with Mac. The image editing feature has improved a lot. As Mac book comes with Retina display so the image quality looks greater. More information visit https://www.applemacsupportnumbers.com/apple-customer-support/

Apparently, DrawIt has been completely phased out for Sketch3. All prior web pages referencing DrawIt on the developer's current web site now redirect to Skecth3.

that was bound to happen. even if the dev has always been honest about his inability to fix drawit's bugs (as seen on the forums) and his desire to migrate drawit's bitmap features into sketch, from the comments on macupdate, it seems that sketch is not much more bug-free than drawit, specially the undo feature. another thing that i don't fully get is why these *mac* vector drawing apps can't export to the *apple icon image* format, ".icns". strangely enough, drawit, which is not a specific vector app, is the only which exports to this format.

yep, this software actually made me write a review. unfortunatelly this isn`t a good one. first and allmost. i bought the software approx 2,5 years ago while looking for a more lightweight illustrator alternative. though i could quickly draw some icons or background images for web development. this software is messing with me for years. i allways come back to it once in a while because i hope that it will be stable at some point, have a proper undo function and get some reasonable documentation. unfortunatelly that`s not the case ... for most functions you actually have to work with trial and error. but mostly error. hard to get masking to work if at all. undos are messy, ... uaaahhh. besides a toy (for quite some bucks) stick to illustrator or inkscape, or other alternatives ... pros: - UI - efect layers - interaction design cons - stability - undos / redos are messed up - poorly documented - seems to be abandoned in favor of sketch (app from same company)

Seems like a possible Fireworks alternative for my needs.. I just need to mix bitmap and vector and export small-sized quality jpg's most of the time. Sad thing is that the preview does not seem to work.. Cannot see the effect of changing jpg settings in it at least... Preview remains unchanged. But the exported jpg size rivals that of Fireworks which is in itself a good thing...Most jpg's exported by other software for similar settings/results are much bigger... GraphicConverter included.

This application is beatuful to look at. It looks stunning. It's lightweight, but i had a few performance problems when working with high resolutions. I love how intuitive it is to work with, and the stacked layers in the sidepane makes a lot of sense. The toolbar provides fast access to some useful features. expose and positioning is excellent addition to this application! I would love to buy it, but unfortunately it has got a few unfortunate problems/bugs, that render it unusable IMHO: *The undo buffer is almost useless. *Rotation is buggy. *Grouping is buggy. *Focus is buggy. I really, really hope this gets fixed in the near future. I tried his other pure vector editor called "sketch" wich is in beta now, and you can totally tell it shares much of the same code base since it shows signs of pretty much the same bugs as drawit has. That said, it has got a *lot* of potential, and i already like it better than any of the other vector drawing applications available for OS X. The developer is very responsive to requests and bug reports, and thus the rather high rating of 4 stars.

I chose not to rate it. Maybe I mis-understood something. But I find it horrible. It allow me to use it for about two minutes. and I get this annoying message to register. Plain Useless.

Just test drove version 3.7.8 and loved it! This program has great support, the developer adds user suggested features every version and the price is very reasonable. And this is an excellent program for kids to get a feel for DTP too without being overwhelmed with a million and one options they have no clue how to use.
