DrawPad Graphic Editor is intended to create different types of graphics, such as charts, logos, icons, banners and billboards. Like most other drawing apps, there are multiple templates available, which is probably the best choice if you do not feel comfortable with starting a project from scratch.

Its interface is not too different from those of other similar applications. It has a large canvas in the centre while the drawing tools are accessible from the toolbar. Luckily, there are tabs that let you work on various projects in a single session. Besides, there is a side panel where you can customize the currently selected tool.

DrawPad Graphic Editor comes with a varied set of tools, such as Crayon, Pencil, Pen, Brush and Spray. It is good that it also has some Bezier tools, which let you draw lines and curves with accuracy. It is likely that most users will also appreciate the Curved Text tool as well. In addition, you can add effects, like gradients, shadows, embosses or bevels, to those objects that support them. Besides, the app lets you work on separate layers, which is a great advantage if you are designing a complex graphic.

The tool can import and export a wide array of picture formats. In this respect, it is great that vector graphics are supported, which allow scaling the image without causing distortion or altering resolution.

In general, DrawPad Graphic Editor can help you create high-quality drawings for a wide range of purposes. Although it is certainly not as sophisticated as the leading products of the industry, some people may still prefer it because of its simplicity. Another factor to consider is price, as this app is also quite inexpensive and there is even a free version available for non-commercial purposes.
