I think I have a problem.
On my Paint Tool Sai, it seems that I can't look at all the options that I have on the side bar thing. You know where the colour pallet is? Well, When I look down all the way on that side bar, it will only let me see " Keep Opacity" and will not let me go to see the other options below it. Can someone help me please??? <:I

I just got SAI! When I zoom in it gets extremely pixalated. Is that normal? Or did I just do something wrong?

Neko-CosmicKitty Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
it depends how far you zoom in... if you zoom in a lot its normal.

Im having the same problem as well. It seems whenever a popular artist does a tutorial when they zoom in, it is not pixelated (of course if you zoom in alot then it will become pixelated), can you help me? i cant post anything until i fix this

Nina-Lupus Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2012
Ok, mine kinda fixed itself, and I don't know how. But I think what you do when you open a new canvas make the resolution high. Like 300 or 400. That usually works. Sorry if it wasn't helpful.

Paint Tool Sai is not a free program. you have to buy it for $40.

I've got a question, do you know if there's any option for pressure sensitivity? ^^

Neko-CosmicKitty Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
[link] <---- This journal from another deviant tells you about the option for pressure sensitivity. I don't think there's an option for this in paint tool sai (i may be wrong) but you can change pressure sensitivity in your tablet options. :) hope this helps
