Sketchpad has been used in applications from scientific machine learning, to kids drawing, but we haven’t had much chance to focus on any commercial aspects. This is why we’re excited to be changing that. We’re gearing up to provide the technology that makes your users product customization experience quick and easy by tapping into our experience + codebase in building Sketchpad.
One of the many features we’re creating to push the envelope is instant previews of customized products—there is no more need to upload the artwork, process the preview on the server, and then download once again, this can all be done in milliseconds in the browser.
We’re looking for partners who own print companies, with websites that are in the need of automation and HTML5 goodness. Connect with us—https://sketch.io/contact.html
Take photos with your webcam: mix and match combinations of filters to come up with your own unique effects. FilterStack includes a large collection of filter combinations to help get you started.
Once you’re happy with your image, you can save to your computer, or upload to Sketch.IO to share with your friends. Similarly, you can share your custom filters as well—this way your friends can use the same filter you made for their own pictures.
To enable editing, hover over the right side of the app—this will display thesidebar. Here you can: add filters, modify the values of each filter in the stack, reorganize which filter is processed first, enable/disable filters, or remove filters. Each of these controls can create vastly different effects.
Play around, share the results, and let us know what you think!
Where Sketchpad 2.0 introduced non-destructive vector + bitmap editing on the web, Sketchpad 2 webpage.1 (SP2.1) takes that bland package of vector tools and borrows features from Sketch Mobile, an app that exhibited my furthest exploration in creating colorful enviroments. SP2.1 is great at creating background wallpapers quickly now that most of the tools work with gradients, and are all editable in place—this can be especially fun on tools like Mr. Doob’s generative brushes, and the improved stamp tool.
