Corel Painter 12.2 review

Digital Arts
9 November 2012
  • Excerpt: The world of digital painting tends to be split between those in the Photoshop camp and those who prefer real natural media effects and use Painter.
  • Pros: New watercolour flowmaps; brush types miles ahead of Photoshop’s
  • Cons: Steep learning curve; unintuitive interface

  • Summary: One reason I like Corel products is that they are intuitive another is they give you printed documentation. To be fair it’s a Getting Started Guide but as that is a 124 page hard back book you start to see this is not a trivial package.

  • Conclusion: Improved interface, brush handling and a few new creative effects; it’s still the best, but Painter is largely trading on existing strengths

Corel Painter 12 review

Digital Arts
13 June 2011
  • Excerpt: Long-favoured by digital artists with a penchant for realistic painterly (and other natural media) techniques, the burning question is does this latest iteration represent a good enough reason for existing users to upgrade, and will the improved features encourage new users to incorporate Painter into their creative workflow?
  • Pros: Improved Photoshop-style interface; enhanced workflow and shortcuts to key tools; brushes can be adjusted more efficiently
  • Cons: Performance has been improved but some functions still feel on the slow side; still a lot for new users to take in
