Cons of Installing PaintTool SAI:

  • Plain Navigational Layout: This paint tool does not have a lot of snazzy features immediately visible on its interface. Although this increases the usability of the layout in the immediate sense for new users, some users will prefer a flashier interface that offers more features. This plainness of the navigational layout also makes the program feel older, which contributes to an overall feeling of antiquity. Despite this, the program is actually very functional.
  • Advanced Features Take an Extended Period of Time to Learn: Some of the more advanced features take a longer period of time to learn. This is very common with most paint tools, since each paint tool has its own learning curve. However, the learning curve for PaintTool SAI is particularly steep, since the basic functions of the program are so easy to learn, thanks to its very basic framework.
  • No Mobile Platform Use: Many people enjoy being able to use their mobile devices to edit pictures. Unfortunately, this program can only work on full computers.
