How to drag and drop files into SketchBook for Mobile (iPad)

For iOS 11 iPad users only

With the introduction of iOS 11, we’ve leveraged Apple’s drag and drop feature. Using the Apple dock and Files app, you can drag and drop PNG, JPEG, PSD, and SketchBook TIFF files from available locations, such as iCloud Drive.

If you would like to use an image from Photos and drag and drop it into the canvas, with Photos and the Files app open, navigate to iCloud Drive, then drag and drop the image from Photos onto iCloud Drive.

Dragging an image into the canvas on Mobile

Creates another layer in the Layer Editor, containing the dragged image.

  1. With SketchBook open, access the Apple dock and select the Files app. This opens the Browser along the side.
  2. Select the image you want from the supported image formats (PNG, JPEG, PSD, or SketchBook TIFF).
  3. When you find an image, drag and drop it into the canvas.

    If the image is a SketchBook TIFF and has multiple layers, it will be flattened onto one layer.
