A+ from a Photoshop User
This review is from: SmithMicro Manga Studio EX 4 - (PC & Mac)
Pros: I did plenty of research--I played with the trial version of Sketch Pro and found Manga Studio to be a better prospect. I wanted a program that could give me more options to my digital sketching. The software works great with my Cintiq. 4.0 is very similar to Photoshop in many ways--making it easier to pick-up.
Cons: I'm still learning the software at this point. My only con would be the installation phase was irritating. I had to go into the documentation to figure out how to install the screens, etc. This portion of the process should be less cumbersome.
