OOOH! That's why the "Save" & "Save As" was disabled. (I didn't read or understand enough.)

Applause! Applause! :D

Is Paint Sai 2 not a subscription thing? I always figured it was a subscription for the legal ones like photoshop. (and tbh, i hate subscriptions. I just want the dang thing once and never pay for it again)

No subscription for Paint Tool Sai 2. Most art software does not have subscription.

Photo Shop CS versions i think are not subscription . its only their new CC last i checked. Adobe likes enslaving people on payment plans . only people making steady income can afford it. I cant.

all my suggestions are low price or one time price, or free.

Oh, I didn't know that about Photo Shop! Do you know where to get it? :) I see links to it on certain websites but they uh look unofficial and sketchy. And all I see on Adobe's site is a free trial.

Affinity Photo or designer is a good alternative to PS . Although not as fully featured. also the old PS CS can be found on DA but unsure if safe or not . try Gimp 2 which is not as good but its free .

I'm thinking of getting it, as the program I use (kleki, it's free) is decent but not great. For everyone who has it, is paint tool sai worth it? If so, does it work on a Microsoft Surface Pro 6?

AdvanceRun's avatar

besides Krita there is also Autodesk :Sketch Book Pro; which is free too.

AdvanceRun's avatar

there is also Krita which is free. On my blog there i link to above, where i have the how to buy Sai 2. Look for software i recommend . that page.

AdvanceRun's avatar

hi. i think Sai 2 is good. But if you need a more capable drawing software, i recommend Clip Studio Paint Pro.

Lunaclaw999's avatar

Hi ! Thank you for the tutorial ! But I have a problem, i can't change the "simple circle", I don't know if you know what i mean but I can't create brush :(

AdvanceRun's avatar

hi . sorry late reply. unsure.

I bought SAI2 today thanks for the tutorial! Really love this painting app, its one of the best optimized draw and paint software you can get.

I’m still a little confused on how to download sai v2. I bought sai v1 a few days ago and would like to upgrade. I don’t fully understand what I’m supposed to do with the zip file.

AdvanceRun's avatar

open the file, place the activation sai-00000000.slc into that folder .

should then save images. just press the exe to start. to upgrade , download the development version again. copy past files over old . make sense ? if not please give details .

I tried to open the sai2 exe though my computer wont allow me to. The application I’m supposed to open is ’sai2.exe’ right?

AdvanceRun's avatar

Yes, where did you download it from ? its supposed to run with or without a activation file.

I downloaded the 64bit 2020-08-28 zip file on the website.

AdvanceRun's avatar

did you unzip the folder ? i wonder if you need the right environment to run it. its a windows only application. it won't ; work on MAC.


Install Microsoft Visual C++ studio : 2008 , 2010, 2012, 2013, 2015 . Redistributable . maybe it needs this to work. and .NET .

ive unzipped the folder and i am downloading this on windows. Every time i try to open it windows wont allow me to? i think I have Microsoft visual c++ installed unless you need to manually download it.

AdvanceRun's avatar

maybe dependency are missing. unsure. try reinstalling c plus etc, or trouble shoot along that line.

AdvanceRun's avatar

do you get a error message ? anything ?or nothing happens ?

Do you know how to properly import SAI 1 brushes into SAI 2? Alot of people I've seen have pirated it and it worked, but is there a way to make this work for the purchased sai 2?

I've moved the folders into their respective places, but it still doesn't seem to work. I have also tried changing it to a 63x63 size but that does not work as well. Any help is greatly appreciated!
