Sketch App vs Photoshop
# March 12, 2013 at 11:51 am
I have been using Photoshop since forever on my designs. But I recently was introduced to [Sketch App](http://www.bohemiancoding.com/sketch/ “”) by Bohemiancoding. So far i’m loving it. It’s super fast and intuitive to learn. It’s all vector based which is perfect for creating svg’s. I’m currently running the beta version and there are a few bugs here and there especially when scaling complex shapes or groups but nothing that Photoshop doesn’t struggle with anyway.
To be honest I feel at the moment that i’d quite happily swap Sketch app for Photoshop. There are a few things I would love to have in Sketch App to make it a complete replacement, things like layer and group styles, but I heard these are in development – speaking of development the app is updated every other day with bug fixes and new features, it’s for sure well supported. It’s £34.99 which is nothing in comparison to Photoshop…
I created some vector based social icons using Sketch feel free to download them there are .png .pdf .svg .esp ever the orginal .sketch file for those who have it! [http://www.neilorangepeel.com/free-social-icons/](http://www.neilorangepeel.com/free-social-icons/ “”)
Anyone else tried Sketch App? Do you think it could compete with PS# March 12, 2013 at 12:24 pm
We tend to use Photoshop as a ‘genera;’ website “design” / mock-up tool but that isn’t what Adobe actually designed it for.
Adobe will tell you that’s why they have Illustrator/Fireworks/PS…hence, the Creative Suite.
General vector image are the forte (including export to SVG) of, obviously, Illustrator.# March 13, 2013 at 2:10 am
@Paulie_D yeah funny how we’ve all hacked PS for mockups I still have PS CS6 and can always do the odd job in there, especially for photo editing. But all my design bits I have been using Sketch and i’m enjoying more everyday.
@TheDoc Let me know what you think when you get your hands on it
