Digital art has become the norm, with a wide range of software programs available to allow drawing and painting on a virtual canvas. Often these programs will focus on a particular aspect, such as design, illustration, or photo-manipulation.

Design programs can be use for CAD, such as 3D structure for architecture, or else focus on graphic design such as shapes, banners, and logos. General design software will focus on one or the other. Illustration programs can often include elements of graphic design in their interface, but will also feature a number of additional options for working with color and shading.

Photo-manipulation software was originally for just manipulating images for digital photography, but often these also now incorporate elements key to illustration options. There are also dedicated programs that aim to emulate the experience of painting.

Different design, drawing, and paint programs have their different strengths and focus, and although all can be operated with a mouse, often it’s better to work with a digital pen/design tablet such as a Wacom, in order to get fine details as accurate as possible.

Whatever you’re looking for in design, illustration, or photo-manipulation software, here we’ll look at the best to help you make your choice.
