Import PSB files

You can now import large Photoshop files with .PSB format into Fresco. 

Undo/Redo improved (on iOS only)

To avoid any inadvertent changes to your artwork, you can now disable the undo and redo gestures in Fresco. By default, this option is enabled in Fresco. To disable, choose Settings > App Settings > Input and tap on Disable Undo/Redo.

Clear layer

Clear the content from a layer by choosing Clear layer from Layer Actions.  Clear layer sets all pixels to transparent for raster layers and erases all paths on a vector layer.

This action is disabled for layer groups. Clear layer is enabled in all cases where the layer is editable, otherwise it is hidden. For example, it is hidden when a layer is locked or not visible.

For more information, see Layers in Fresco

Recolor with the Fill tool

Recolor using the fill tool while preserving the targeted color pattern of the original artwork. The recolor fill uses the existing fill behavior with color tolerance value and enables lock transparency for the fill operation.

For more information, see Colors

Added erasers

Double-tap on the eraser icon in tool panel to access a set of pixel erasers. Pixel erasers and options appear when a pixel layer is selected.
