User guide

Note the zoom is made mainly for pixel art, therefore custom brushes will give a bit of an inaccurate preview since the preview is not resized with the canvas.

In settings.cfg, you can edit the save/load directory. Read the PDF manual for more info.

According to the developer there is an Easter Egg in this version of yPaint (Hint: settings.cfg).


Analog - Move the cursor

D-Pad - Change selected option (in menu)

R - Change menu

Triangle - Move image

Cross - Use instrument

Known issues

The zoom may cause a slight lag in the program.
