    Looking for a simple sketch program...

    I'm looking for a sketch program, similar to Alias Sketchbook Pro. Basically I'm looking for a simple, quick app that will let me make notes, sketch over designs, even sketch on the desktop (or on a screen capture of the desktop) fairly quickly and easily. It would be used for crits and brainstorming sessions, where people can have some images on their tablets/screens and just do a quick "How 'bout this" sketch on top of a design. And I'm not looking for something as in-depth as Painter or Photoshop. This is work-related, and I will be using it, as well as a few people with tablet PCs who have little drawing ability, so simplicity is a major consideration.

    Anyone know of any good programs for this? Sketchbook Pro is definitely in the running, but I need to check out a few other apps before we make a decision.

    Thanks

    Cool

    I wonder, can OpenCanvas be used in this way?

    Also, not that it will solve your problem, but you might find this thread about Pixar's sketch tool interesting: click

    Call them up... maybe they'll send you a copy?

    go to download.com and look up artrage
    its interface is similar to sketchbook pro in some ways.
    it's freeware; to save in formats other than teh artrage format you pick export and you can make it a jpeg, gif, etc

    maybe that can help

    I saw that thread about Pixar's product. I'm hoping that they either start to sell it or it leaks out onto the internet somehow.

    ArtRage looks cool, but I need something that comes in Windows and Mac versions.
