Osketch is intended for designing vector graphics. In this respect, it can be used to create practically all types of graphics, including icons, logos and app interfaces. Likewise, the app supports a wide range of picture formats. Unluckily, its help documentation is quite poor.

The application may look familiar to those who have already used painting and drawing tools before. Of course, there is the big canvas area in which you can draw the different elements that compose your graphic. Good news is that this canvas is virtually infinite. It is shame, however, that it does not support tabs, which would allow working on various projects simultaneously.

There is a toolbar on top, where you can find basic shapes, polygons, text and path tools. Besides, there are side panels that may appear according to what you are doing at the moment. For instance, they allow you to browse an extensive library of shapes. Likewise, they can be used to change the properties of the selected object, including its color, borders, shadows and stroke type. By the way, you can use a preset style to save some time and effort. Fortunately, you can create a new style, give it a name and then reuse it with other shapes.

There are other convenient features of Osketch you would probably like. Regarding this, it is possible to use any graphic as a mask. Similarly, you can create new shapes by grouping or combining existing ones.

All in all, Osketch helps you create all sorts of attractive graphics, which, of course, depends on your artistic and computer skills. The finished work can be exported to a wide range of bitmap formats, like JPG and PNG. This product can be purchased from the Mac Store at a reasonable price. However, it is a shame that it will not be all as what the vendor calls “premium features pack” should be acquired separately as an in-app purchase.
