37. Creating manga with Frame Divider tool

Frame Divider tool lets you divide frames, an essential function for making manga.

Prepare a rough manga drawing.

Open ①the Tool Selection window, and select ②Frame Divider tool.

Tap on the screen. Tap on ①Add Frame once it appears.

You can adjust the margins on both the left and right with ①Horizontal Space.
Use ②Vertical Space to adjust the top and bottom margins.
③Frame Thickness lets you adjust the thickness of the frame.
④Border Color lets you change the color of the frame.
Once you are done making adjustments, tap on ⑤✓ to finish.

Adjust the frame interval before dividing the frame. Tap on ①the Edit button.

①Horizontal Interval lets you adjust the left and right margins by dragging the slider left and right.
②Vertical Interval lets you adjust the top and bottom margins by dragging the slider left and right.
※Since manga is read horizontally first, and vertically second, it’s better to make the horizontal margins small and vertical margins large.

Continue dividing the frame along the rough frame.

Once the frame is divided, Tap on ①Select and drag ②diagonally outside the canvas to select multiple frames.

You can also change the shape of the frame as shown.
Drag ①the handle to change the shape of the frame to your liking.

Tap on ①Edit button.

You can change ①the Border Color.
②Border Thickness lets you change the thickness of the frame by dragging the slider left and right.

Tap on ①Fill Color. First, start filling by increasing ②the opacity level from 0% by dragging the slider to the right. Select the color from ③the palette to change the color inside the frame.

Once you are done adjusting, tap on ①✓ to finish.

Once you are done adjusting, you can simply add it to the illustration and you’re done. Let’s draw real manga on your smartphone!
