The designer's touch
Co-founder of internationally recognized Marcolina Design, Dan created the unique five-finger touch interface for Adobe Eazel. He thinks users will enjoy the way the clean, clutter-free UI puts creative power beneath each fingertip.
"It's a very pure painting experience with the whole expanse of the screen as your canvas—there are no extraneous palettes or menus in your way."
"You can paint with your fingers or any stylus—the Nomad Brush is quite magical. The paint spreads out as you go and 'dries' over a couple of seconds, and what's really cool is that—as you draw over the top of an existing stroke—Adobe Eazel knows how to bleed paint into that color."
Five-finger touch UI
"We wanted a unique multitouch solution for navigating the Adobe Eazel tools and functions—something zen-like in its simplicity. The five-finger touch was a breakthrough moment for usability. It takes a bit of learning, but ultimately it's very natural."
"We put the most commonly used tools on your most usable fingers. So you control color with your index finger, brush size with your middle finger, and opacity with your ring finger. You access settings with your pinky finger. Your thumb flicks to undo or redo, and it slides to erase."
Sending to Photoshop
"It's so freeing to send an Adobe Eazel painting into Photoshop instantaneously. You get a higher-res version to work with, and it retains the alpha channel that gives it that transparent quality."
