TOKYO, July 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- NHN Japan Corporation announced on July 27 the release of 'LINE Brush' for its free calling and free messaging app 'LINE' (http://line.naver.jp/en/). This free, LINE-integrated drawing app has been released for the iOS first, and allows users to create and process their own illustrations on their smartphones using a variety of different brushes and tools. Of course the app includes a function for users to send their finished masterpieces directly to LINE friends.
It comes fully loaded with 27 types of pencils and felt-tip pens, a color palette, a white canvas and a feature which allows users to draw directly on top of photos saved on their smartphones. Users can also enjoy 15 types of special Photo Brushes (water colors, crayons etc.) which can be waved on top of photos to create a painting-like effect of the actual photo. Aside from this, users can adjust the smallest of details such as the scale of photos, brush size and brightness using fine-tuning adjustment bars.
LINE Brush will become part of the expanding LINE Channel service and provides a new form of communication through hand-drawn illustrations in addition to the existing features of sending text, stickers and photos.
NHN Japan said that the Android version will be ready in the near future.
The company also declared that it will proceed to push forth its platform integration of LINE and will continue to be committed to promoting active communication as well improving the other affiliated services it offers.
