REALISTIC SKYWRITING on your Mac! Write your name in the sky and watch it waft away like real skywriting! Sketch a picture or write message in the sky, then save a picture of your work before it floats away! Write over cityscapes, watch your skywriting as it floats BEHIND buildings and palm trees, just like it's actually in the sky!

SkyWriting, the popular iPad app has been rebuilt from the ground up for the Mac App Store! Additional backgrounds and features:

  • Background images a-plenty: Sky write over a cloudy sky, over a beach, a desert, or any of several famous cities such as New York, Chicago, Boston, Syndey, Paris, London and more! (And check it out: when you right on the palm tree, london, paris or new york images, your writing stays behind the foreground stuff, like it's really in the sky!)

  • Set your OWN image as a background; write in the sky over you own pictures, then save the result to send to a friend! Just drop your image onto the box below the background image selector to use your own images as a skyline.

  • Unlimited smoke! Draw to you heart's content and fill the sky.

  • Updated smoke algorithm (you did know this was made by a feature film visual effects artist, right?) Smoke looks more realistic than ever.

  • Adjustable smoke size-- make GIANT puffs if you like.

  • Adjustable "Wafting Away" speed! Set it slow to write a lot, then speed it up to watch it waft. Space bar toggles the movement, so you can start and stop the action: write on a frozen sky, then let it waft a little to get that realistic look, then save the image.

  • Adjustable smoke color -- do what the planes can't; sky write in different colors! Now your skywriting can be any color of the rainbow.

  • One-Touch copy to clipboard.

  • Pause & Save an image of the current sky-- share your art
    with others!

    MAC ONLY FEATURE (Not found in the iPad version!):
  • TYPE TO WRITE -- not sure of your handwriting? Simply click where you want the words and start hitting keys on the keyboard! They'll be written instantly in the sky and start wafting just like you drew them! Upper and lower case letters, numbers, symbols, anything! Change the smoke size slider for larger or smaller letters. Now you can write volumes in the sky if you want!!

    Created by Jeff Wolverton, a feature film visual effects artist working in Hollywood.
