PaintTool SAI is a paint tool for PC that allows artists to get a hold of their artistic and creative sides again through digital artwork or even photo editing.

This is an excellent program for creating or touching up digital artwork as well as adding a personal touch to photos. It features a very simple interface which makes it easy for users to navigate the program and do whatever task they need to do. It is compatible with most drawing tablets and uses up very little power. This means that users can research a project, listen to music, and more while using the program without anything crashing or even coming close to crashing.

In terms of tools, PaintTool SAI is equipped with everything from watercolors and airbrushes to pencils and erasers. Each brush and texture is completely customizable so that users can create their own tools and textures and then have them at hand whenever they want to use them again. There are also some more advanced features that one would find in more popular, and more expensive, paint programs, like layers. Layers are excellent for adding depth and cool effects to a design and really make a statement.

This program also boasts excellent line tools that are easy to use and streamlined. All you have to do is specify which layer of the file you want to work in, and then click on your pen tool of choice to begin making lines. The pen tool system features pressure-sensitive lines, so you can control the thickness of the line and change it up as you go. This is perfect for drawing hair and other strange lines.

One last feature of PaintTool SAI is its extreme portability. Users can use any kind of cloud storage service, such as Dropbox, with no problem in order to save and share files.
