Your creative journey starts here

1 Draw

Draw on any page in the notebook using any tool of your choice, although black ink and markers tend to work best. Sketch your idea using broad strokes as opposed to shading.

2 Capture

Use the Moleskine, a Creative Cloud connected app to take a picture of your drawing. If you are satisfied with the image, after choosing the setting, tap on use image button.

3 Choose the settings

The preprocessing settings are specifically developed to detect the orientation of the page, correct perspective and alignment distortions. The app uses the special page markings to help process and optimize the image. The filters settings should be used to correct the images according to the lighting condition during the capturing or the technique or tool used for drawing. If you are not satisfied with the result as a JPG file before converting it to an SVG file change the settings.

4 Sync

Sync with Creative Cloud to store both files formats (JPG and SVG) in your Creative Cloud Assets folder.

5 Refine

After you've synced your files, you can open and edit them in Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop—or refine and utilize the JPG files in other Creative Cloud desktop and mobile applications.

Latest updates

In response to user feedback, we've improved the integration with the Adobe Creative Cloud in the latest update to the Moleskine Creative Cloud connected app by simplifying the user experience and introducing new in-app editing features. Now, you can capture your work in our Moleskine Creative Cloud connected app, edit it with one of several Adobe mobile apps, like Photoshop Fix or Photoshop Express, and return to the Moleskine app with the edited image. The new editing functionality in the Moleskine Creative Cloud connected app was made possible by integrating a beta component of Adobe's Creative SDK that enables mobile app to app workflows.

What's New:

  • Capture images easily with automatic corner selection

  • Edit with brand new, intuitive editing button

  • Cut and combine elements from different images, blend layers and apply looks in Photoshop Mix

  • Color, lighten, liquify, heal and adjust your images in Photoshop Fix

  • Add effects and stickers in Photo Editor by Aviary

  • Make one touch adjustments for color, brightness, and contrast in Photoshop Express

Tips for making it picture perfect

  • Preparing the notebook
    Lay the notebook flat and straighten the pages, making sure the notebook is completely open. Moleskine notebooks are specially designed to lay flat at 180°.

  • Lighting the page
    Lighting greatly affects the quality of the resulting image. Best results can be achieved with bright and evenly distributed light, preferably daylight.

    If you're using artificial lighting, use two carefully positioned sources to avoid shadows or glare. Turning off the camera flash can also prevent sharp highlights and shadows on the page. If you have to use the flash, take photos from a distance of approximately 50 cm (20 in).

  • Lighting the page
    It's best to capture only one page at a time. Hold your iPhone parallel so that the page edge is aligned with the edge of the viewfinder. The entire page (including page markers) should be visible within the viewfinder. Before taking the photo, ensure your work is in focus by tapping the screen.
