Is Leonardo the best drawing app for Windows?
That's our aspiration. Leonardo is probably the best drawing app for the Microsoft Surface and all other PC-tablets and we hope that within two years we can be the best Windows drawing app, period.
What are Leonardo's biggest strengths?
The speed, the user interface, the line tools and the infinite canvas.
What are Leonardo's most requested features?
Custom brushes, custom shortcuts, distort tool and layer folders. We are currently working on a big rewrite of the underlaying technology that will make these and much more possible.
What is the difference between the desktop version (from this website) and the Windows Store version?
None. It's the exact same version of Leonardo.
Is Leonardo a good alternative to Photoshop?
Both yes and no. Drawing on a Windows tablet is definitely nicer with Leonardo than Photoshop. Leonardo is also much faster and easier to learn. However, Photoshop is a beast when it comes to features. A lot of our users start their illustrations in Leonardo and then do the final touches in Photoshop. Leonardo can export to the Photoshop file format (PSD) which makes the transition easy.
Is Leonardo a good alternative to Sketchable?
Yes. Sketchable is also built for Windows tablets like Leonardo. But Leonardo is much faster, more stable, easier to learn and have more features then Sketchable.
Is Leonardo a good alternative to Sketchbook Pro?
Yes. Sketchbook was never designed for touch interfaces.
Is Leonardo a good alternative to Paint Tool SAI?
Yes, but we genuinely admire SAI for its drawing capabilities! Its user interface might feel a bit outdated and might be slightly challenging for newcomers. Additionally, it seems there hasn't been recent development on it.
Is Leonardo a good alternative to Mischief?
Yes, Mischief is among the handful of drawing apps that feature an infinite canvas, similar to Leonardo. However, the underlying mechanics of Leonardo and Mischief are distinct: Leonardo uses a raster-based system, while Mischief is vector-based. In our view, raster technology is better suited for drawing/painting apps since crucial tools, such as Smudge and Lasso, are tailored for raster applications. Additionally, it appears that Mischief's development has been halted.
Is Leonardo the Windows equivalent of ProCreate?
If you're asking whether Leonardo is the premier drawing app for Windows tablets, akin to ProCreate's status on iPad, then the answer is likely yes! However, it's worth noting that Leonardo and ProCreate have distinct features. Unique elements like Leonardo's infinite canvas and line tools set it apart from other apps.
Does Leonardo work on my computer?
Leonardo is compatible with most Windows systems. However, for the optimal drawing experience, we highly recommend using a pen. To ensure compatibility with your device, please download the trial version of Leonardo from our download page.
Does Leonardo work with Microsoft Surface tablets?
Does Leonardo work with Wacom tablets?
How long will Leonardo be in Beta?
Likely until 2024. In 2022, we encountered a challenge that hindered incremental improvements to Leonardo. Since then, we've dedicated significant time to overhaul the underlying technology. Once this overhaul is complete, we'll remove the Beta label.
What is the roadmap for Leonardo?

How do I update Leonardo to the latest version?
For those using the desktop version of Leonardo (obtained from our website), navigate to Help > Software Update within the application. If you're using the Windows Store version, please visit the Leonardo listing there.
How often will I receive updates for Leonardo?
We typically release a significant update every six months. In between, we might roll out minor updates to address bugs. We don't update Leonardo more frequently because extensive testing is required for each major release, which takes time.
Will future updates be free if I have already purchased Leonardo?
Yes, if you've already purchased Leonardo, all beta and version 1.x releases will be available to you at no additional cost
Is there any forum for Leonardo users?
No, we definitely need to address this.
Does Leonardo have custom (saveable) brushes?
No, not at the moment. However, due to its high demand, we're actively working on implementing it.
Does Leonardo have a text tool?
No, currently we don't offer that feature. But given its popularity, we hope to incorporate it soon.
Can Leonardo AI import PDF files?
No, but we've noted this as a frequent request. We hope to incorporate it in upcoming updates.
Does Leonardo AI handle Photoshop (PSD) files?
Leonardo has the capability to export PSD files, but it cannot import or directly save in that format.
Does Leonardo have screen recording?
No. We recommend using an external software like Camtasia for that purpose.
How do I save to JPEG or PNG?
Please go to File > Export.
When I zoom-in my canvas gets pixelated!
Leonardo operates on a raster-based system, meaning if you zoom in beyond 100%, pixels will become visible. By "infinite canvas", we refer to the ability to scroll endlessly in any direction, not limitless zooming. For a higher resolution, initiate your drawing at a zoom level of 50% or 25% and use it as your starting point
I can't zoom out more than 50%!
Navigate to the zoom panel by clicking on the magnifying glass icon. From there, select 'Options'. Within 'Options', you'll be able to define the maximum and minimum zoom levels.
How do I give Leonardo AI as a gift?
Go to the Leonardo page on the Windows Store and find the three dots near the 'Buy' button. Click on them, and you'll have an option to purchase it as a gift.
Can I pay for Leonardo with PayPal?
Yes. Underneath the 'Buy' button on the purchase page, there's a link for that option. Additionally, if you'd like the Windows Store version of Leonardo, they also accept PayPal.
Do I need an account to try Leonardo?
Yes, you'll need a Leonardo account created within the app post-installation or a Microsoft account for the Store version.
Does Leonardo require a Internet connection to run?
No. An internet connection is only required the first time you launch Leonardo and for purchase verification.
