To achieve this, the desktop app provides easy access to a large built-in brush collection that hosts various categories of tools, including pixel, live, and vector brushes.

While Adobe Fresco for Windows PC has a bit of a learning curve, it is intended for both novices and seasoned artists who can all access traditional drawing and painting techniques. This excellent drawing program also offers numerous tools that are closely tied to the streamlined Creative Cloud platform, enabling users to easily sync their projects online, access files from any supported device they own, collaborate, share, and much more.

Finally, in addition to enabling traditional painting, sketching, and illustration projects, this app also features a wide selection of motion tools that can bring animation and movements into any static image, making it a highly effective tool for creators of all types.

While system requirements for this design app are not that high, the app is optimized only for Windows 10 (1903 or later) or Windows 11. In addition to Windows OS, it can also be downloaded from the App Store for use on iPad and iPhone devices. Android and web versions are not offered.

The first version of this app was released quite recently in late 2019, which quickly received over 40 notable updates making it into a highly usable app that is available on the market today.

How to Use

After authenticating Adobe ID credentials, Adobe Fresco for PC welcomes users to a stylish home window that displays recent work, a project-sharing panel, an inspirational gallery section, and even a section for learning and discovery. New projects can be created with ease either from a blank canvas or by using professionally made templates.

The app features heavy integration with other Creative Cloud products, including Photoshop and Illustrator, and features an easy way to import assets from Adobe’s extensive library of stock items.

User Interface

The user interface of Adobe Fresco is simple enough for beginners, but it may take some time to get used to. Due to its focus on use on mobile devices, all its tools are fully optimized for touch access, making the overall layout of its on-screen elements a bit less cluttered than in many other similar image editing apps from Adobe Inc. The main user interface consists of the central painting canvas, the main column of tools on the left, and layer/object properties on the right.
