If you're a Corel Painter user who's as likely to grab a virtual pencil or pen as a virtual paintbrush, you need this upgrade.

  • Summary: Corel Painter 11 is a worthwhile upgrade overall — and a must if you have a Wacom Intuous or Cintiq tablet and use its virtual pencils, chalk, pastels and other nonpaint tools to do sketching.
  • Pros: Super-realistic new hard media tools, better Photoshop support
  • Cons: Interface remains cluttered, priced for professionals (not amateurs)

Corel Painter 11 review

Digital Arts
5 October 2008
  • Excerpt: For natural media artwork, Painter is second to none. Instead to trying to take on the 800-pound gorilla of the imaging world that is Photoshop, Corel has stuck rigidly to Painter's core functionality. This may confine it permanently to a niche, but what a niche it is.
  • Pros: Faster and produces more realistic work than previous editions.
  • Cons: Steep learning curve for new users.
