87. Switching devices / transferring data (with Dropbox)

There are several ways to transfer data between devices in ibisPaint.
Using Dropbox: data transferring on Dropbox is easy to understand. It can be done using a telephone line, but we recommend using WiFi especially if you have many files to transfer. The transfer is only for the artwork files.
Using SD card on Android: Copy artwork files over using an SD card. Both devices (i.e., device that contains the data and the device to be copied to) must run on Android.
Using PC on iOS: Copy artwork files using iTunes. Both devices (i.e., device that contains the data and the device to be copied to) must run on iOS.

Here, we explain how you can transfer data using Dropbox. Since using Dropbox requires network access, we recommend using WiFi instead of telephone line especially if you have many artwork files to transfer. Unlike other methods, this method is capable of transferring files between devices with different operating systems (e.g., Android to iOS, and vice versa). It is also the easiest method that we recommend. First, go to an applications store such as the Google Play Store (for Android) or the App Store (for iOS) to download the Dropbox application. Afterwards, access https://www.dropbox.com/ to create your account. Log into the Dropbox application once you are done.

Tap ① the artwork file that gets backed up from My Gallery, and tap on ② the share button.

In the file format, select ① Artwork(IPV).

In the share destination selection, tap on① Save to Dropbox.

Select the folder in the save destination and tap on ① Save. Do this the number of times you want to back up your artwork file.

Next, install the same Dropbox application on the target device, and log in. Afterwards, tap on ① the artwork file (IPV) you want to restore.

It will show, "No Preview Available". Tap on ① …

Tap on ① Export. For Android, tap on "Open This App...".

Tap on ① Open In....

Tap on ① Open in ibisPaint X.

The restored artwork file will now be shown in My Gallery in ibisPaint. When restoring multiple artwork files, repeat exporting to Dropbox and copying them to ibisPaint X.
The method explained here is for switching between devices, however, this method can also be used to transfer artwork files from your tablet to your smartphone to keep on working.

After exporting, you can tap on ① Copy Link to share the link on social media to send your artwork file (IPV) to your friends. It is great fun to collaborate with your friends to create a unique work.
