Editors' review

Real-Draw Pro will look familiar to people who have used similar programs in the past. With suitable tools for creating digital drawings, Real-Draw Pro attempts to set itself apart from the pack with a few added options, but may be over the heads of novices.

This download looks more complex than Paintbrush, but less confusing than more professional programs like CorelDRAW. People familiar with either of those programs will instantly feel at home with Real-Draw, thanks to its traditional interface. The center of the screen is dominated by the drawing space, while the left side holds all the drawing tools, the right features the more complex controls professionals desire, and the middle offers fun options for creating textures and even 3D lighting. Drawing with Real-Draw Pro is both intuitive and slightly confusing. People will be pleased with the single, smooth step for selecting a tool from the left side menu and using a mouse to create the design. The menu along the right side will be a slight snag for novice users, since options like Bevel, Layer, and the program's confusing color chart seem intended for those with professional training.

Even though some of the options are confusing, creating art with Real-Draw was very simple and people should have no problem finding an immediate comfort zone. This 30-day trial offers a little something for everyone and makes a fine download.

    "An interesting piece of software"

    July 17, 2014   |   By 5bombsnostars

    Version: Real-Draw Pro 5.2.4

    Pros

    It has some nice features that aren't too hard to figure out yourself. It has other more difficult features for a novice, which I may always be. Kids would probably have a lot of fun playing around.

    Cons

    I got my copy years ago and just played around with it until I found something better. The primary reason is that it has a max resolution of 1800X1600 px. It doesn't tell you that until you try to increase it. This is why it doesn't get at least 4 stars from me. I need a larger canvas.

    Summary

    I'd say under $20 for a product which has remained unchanged since 2009 and can't generate larger canvases.. It wouldn't be difficult to update and give it higher density screens. I had fun with it for a while and I may again, just to play.

    "Not bad but a bit buggy"

    September 08, 2013   |   By ReadyPRO

    Version: Real-Draw Pro 5.2.4

    Pros

    1) Basic Photo Editing - 3 of 5 stars
    2) Graphics and text generation - 4 of 5 stars
    3) graphics and text together with photos - 5 of 5 stars

    Cons

    1) Basic photo editing can make photos quite pix-elated
    2) The software needs a lot of memory to edit large photos
    3) Even with the best hardware the software is buggy. I usually crashes every 30 days or so.

    Summary

    I like the software mostly because I have been using it for at least 4 years. I hope they keep improving it.

    "Didn't get a chance to try this program"

    April 29, 2013   |   By jbeaumont_us

    Version: Real-Draw Pro 5.2.4

    Pros

    No Pros!!!

    Cons

    I tried to download this program and had several issues. First when I clicked "install program" it just shut down the installer, then Windows Security Essentials started popping up in my desktop warning me about a potentially dangerous program on my computer, then when I started my browser again, I found my homepage changed to a cheap looking search engine which was loaded with pop-up adverts. I would definitely NOT reccomend downloading this program!!
