Why Upgrade? What’s New in ArtRage 5?

ArtRage has come a long way since it was a free oil paint program back in 2007, and the release of ArtRage 5 in January 2017 completes its evolution into seriously awesome painting software.

ArtRage 5 preserves the rich traditional media effects and intuitive interface that makes ArtRage unique, but brings a whole new professional level to the design and feature set. Along with improved pencil and pastel, ArtRage 5 introduces an entirely new optional interface, perspective and layout guides, custom brush creation, warp mode, layer effects, and the ability to handle multiple documents. It’s also faster and more stable than ever!

New Tools

ArtRage 5 comes with several major new editing and painting tools, including a custom brush designer, Perspective, Guides, and a much more realistic Pencil tool.

ArtRage 5 includes additional image editing effects allowing you to add highlights, dropshadows, emboss, and liquefy effects to a layer. This edition also offers improved speed and processing power, so ArtRage now performs even better at larger sizes and has more stable crash recovery.

  • Custom Brush Tool
  • Custom Brush Designer
  • More Realistic Pencil and Pastel
  • Layer Effects
  • Warp
  • Perspective
  • Guides
  • Improved Fill Tool
  • Improved Color Sampler
  • Remove Color Matte Filter
  • Snap Distance for Grids/Guides/Perspective

Improved Interface

The entire interface has been redesigned to create a cleaner and more intuitive workspace. Along with a complete reworking of every icon and menu, ArtRage 5 includes the option of a sleek ‘Docking’ mode that allows you to fully customize your workspace with floating and docking panels. You can toggle the entire interface into ‘Lights Out’ which gives you dark menus and borders.

We’ve also added in workflow improvements like the ability to rotate your entire painting from the Edit menu, work with multiple documents at once, redesigned the way Transform works and better layer navigation.

  • UI Redesign
  • Docking Mode
  • Lights Out mode
  • Multiple Documents
  • Transform mode

If you have already registered and already clicked on the upgrade button to claim a coupon, even if you did not use it, you will see ‘Upgrade Already Claimed’. This is because we had to replace the upgrade coupons for ArtRage 5, and the old ones will not work with the store. You will still be eligible for a discount.

If you are affected by this, email us the affected serial number via the support form and we will manually update it for you (but please check your email history in case you did already use the discount to purchase an upgrade to ArtRage 4 previously. If you did, you can just register the ArtRage 4 serial instead).
