TOKYO, September 28, 2022
— With ever-growing demand for support from online content creators, Celsys and WEBTOON have partnered on a new feature that allows artists to post their webcomics directly from the English version of the Clip Studio Paint drawing app to the WEBTOON CANVAS self-publishing platform. The new feature debuts today in the fall update to Clip Studio Paint (Version 1.12.7).
With the new update to Clip Studio Paint, users can select their project in the Clip Studio launcher app and publish directly to WEBTOON CANVAS. Selecting the Export to WEBTOON option automatically resizes the images for upload and takes users to the WEBTOON CANVAS publishing page for a seamless experience.
WEBTOON CANVAS is WEBTOON’s self-publishing UGC platform, where webcomic creators can upload their series episode-by-episode, with full control over all aspects of their story, building a unique audience from the thousands of readers that visit the platform daily. WEBTOON is the world’s largest webcomic platform with more than 89 million monthly readers worldwide. Meanwhile, the illustration app Clip Studio Paint offers dedicated features for comic creators, and with more than 20 million creators using Clip Studio Paint worldwide, this collaboration is expected to make the publishing process easier for many artists.
