Do we need photoshop or sketch in order to install/ use craft?

Hey everybody,

I hope you are all doing fine.

We would like to build an app and then I found Invision, which helps us to set up an prototype. Invision then recommends to download the plugin Craft.
Now we would have the following questions:

1. Do we need photoshop or sketch in order to install/ use craft?
2. If yes, what would you recommend us, if we don't have (and won't have) photoshop or sketch? Is there any good alternative software which we can use for setting up a prototype?

Thank you very much in advance for any comments.

Best regards,
Leo

Hi Leo,

Thanks for reaching out today!

Craft is a plugin for Sketch and Photoshop, and requires that one of those programs be already installed. 

You can find out more about Craft's requirements here: Craft Requirements

If you're looking for an alternative design program option, please be sure to also check out our new and powerful screen design tool, InVision Studio, which is FREE and a powerful way to make highly interactive prototypes more easily, and of course can be published to the InVision Cloud website.

Please let us know if you have any further questions about getting started with InVision, and we'd be glad to assist!

Best,

Camille

Hi Camille,

thank you very much for your response and the information.

Just one more question:
Is InVision Studio a good option, if we want to design a wireframe/ prototype of an App?

Thank you again in advance and best regards,

Hi Camille,

I also got the following question:
I would like to work together with my colleagues on this project.
Can I use InVision Studio with my colleagues in a Cloud? 
Or is the option not available?

Thank you very much for your help!

Best regards,

Leo

Hi Leonard,

Thanks for your interest in Studio! Of course we would recommend Studio as a great design tool if you're wanting to create app prototypes.

We also have a great course to kick start your Studio knowledge so you can jump right into designing.

The ability to collaborate live in a prototype in Studio is a potential feature that our Product team is monitoring the interest for and taking that into account when planning for future updates. To that end, I've gone ahead and added your vote to this feature request. 

Please don't hesitate to get back in touch if you ever have any other queries or suggestions. We're always happy to help. 

Regards,

Camille
