Adobe Photoshop

Adobe Photoshop is an imaging and graphic design software developed and published by Adobe Inc. for Windows and macOS.

It offers multiple features for editing and manipulating images, or creating and enhancing drawings.

Repaper is detected automatically as graphics tablet in Photoshop: you can use the Repaper Stylus to select drawing functions and draw & create right from the start.

๐Ÿ–Œ๏ธ For an optimal pressure rendering result, please make sure to activate the pressure option on the top right in Photoshop. You may also wanna check the pen pressure in the brush settings > Shape Dynamics:

Adobe Illustrator

Adobe Illustrator is a professional vector-based design and drawing software for PC and Mac. Illustrator allows for the creation of everything from single design elements to entire compositions. Designers use Illustrator to create posters, symbols, logos, patterns, icons, etc.

Illustrator works off vectors, which is why the quality of artwork is independent of the resolution at which it is displayed. This means that an image created in Illustrator can be enlarged or reduced without sacrificing image quality.

Repaper is detected automatically as graphics tablet in Illustrator.

  • You can create new drawings or finalize your Repaper drawings in Illustrator.

  • For finalizing your Repaper drawing in Illustrator, export your drawing in SVG from Repaper Studio and open it in Illustrator.

  • In case of complex artwork, we recommend to use the Simplify path feature in Illustrator in order to remove unnecessary anchor points.

This video shows you how to do so:


Krita is a professional free and open source painting program, designed primarily for digital painting and 2D animation. You can use Krita along with Repaper on your PC Windows or Mac.

๐Ÿ–Œ๏ธ When drawing with Repaper & Krita, there may be some issues regarding pressure rendering and drawing accuracy. These issues can be solved easily by changing the tablet settings in the Krita settings > Configure Krita:

๐Ÿ› No pressure rendering on PC Windows

If you use a PC Windows, and the pressure exerted on your drawing tool is not detected, you may wanna change the tablet input in the Krita tablet settings. When using a PC Windows 10 & Windows Ink enabled, you should use the tablet input "Windows 8+ Pointer input".

๐Ÿ› Inaccurate strokes

If your drawing result is similar to the one above, you will need to adjust the pressure curve in Krita. In general, you will obtain better results by lowering high pressure:

๐Ÿ› Drawing's transparency

If your drawing is transparent, your pressure curve may not be constant. Please restore the default pressure settings in the tablet settings, so that your curve looks as displayed below:
