View Full Version : Full Version User Manual

10-07-2018, 04:57 AM
Greetings. I just purchased Artrage and while the tutorials are informative, I was wondering if there is a full length user manual I can obtain. I'm a freelance outdoor magazine cartoonist and have been using Photoshop for coloring my cartoons. I'm interested in creating artwork with Artrage because it has features that Photoshop does not include... like a multitude of brushes.

It took me decades to figure out how to use Photoshop and that was with the help of paper manuals. If there is a full version I can obtain of a user manual for Artrage, that's what I'm looking for.

It's an amazing program and I'm looking forward to using it. And during the process, I'll probably end up here quite often.

Hello GAT and welcome to the ArtRage forums :)
I don’t think AR ships with an extensive PDF now but the good news is that at the other end of my link bellow you will find extensive documentation on all available versions of AR.

We all knew nothing about this amazing app once, so do ask as many questions as you want here in the forums, people will be only too glad to help:cool:

Edit: There is still a full PDF manual for v4.5 much of which is still relevant to v5. You can find that here: https://wwwartragecom-akuj6lcbutr8ndmkzcy.stackpathdns.com/wp-content/uploads/ArtRage-4-Manual.pdf
And a v5 Quick Start Guide focusing on new v5 features here: https://www.artrage.com/manuals/getting-started-artrage/artrage-5-quick-start-guide/

Thanks, Mark! That is exactly the info I need! I'm a bit overwhelmed with all the painting options in Artrage 5. Fortunately, some of the Photoshop shortcut keys have the same function in Artrage.
