Star Drawing
The simple to use Android app that allows you to create images from stars.
Why stars?
Stars are  frequently used in images, icons and as a reward in schools and in games. Stars and shapes are used extensively in patterns and design so a drawing tool which uses shapes, circles, ellipses and stars as its' toolbox is useful and, by keeping to a small palette, it is easy to use.
The app is now at version 2 and has been extensively reworked.
Each star can have a number of points from 3 (a triangle) to 199. Circles and ellipses can be created by setting the number of points to one or two respectively.
You can create either shapes or many types of star by changing which points are joined or how many points are skipped. If “Skip” is set to 0 you get shapes, as adjacent points are joined, higher values give a variety of stars. Adjusting “Skip” for an ellipse adjusts the flatness of the ellipse.
By adjusting the “Fill” you can select wire drawing, fully filled or Harlequin fill (often referred to an on-off fill or binary fill).
Points can be rounded to make the stars look like something created with Spirograph. Please note that rounding does not yet work with Harlequin fill or either SVG file format.
The colour of the stars can be changed with our elegant hand crafted colour picker. This gives you full control of the RGB colour stream and the Alpha channel (Transparency). The latter means that your pictures can have quite extraordinary overlap effects.
Once finished your picture can be saved as one of four file formats (JPEG, PNG, SVG and SVG Tiny). You can also set your image as the wall paper on your device or share the image with your friends through any compatible Android app (for example Text or email).

The new preview mode allows you to change the size of and move the whole image.

If you like this please give me a favorable review and click on any ads that you find interesting to give me a small return. Thank you.
