Corel Painter 12
6 October 2011
Excerpt: In my time at MyMac.com I have had the pleasure of being given the opportunity to test several of the past versions of Corel Painter and Painter Essentials. I have said the following in past reviews, and it is worth saying again. Instead of releasing a new Painter every year, Corel waits at least two years between releases and when they release a new version they pack it with new features. Painter 12 follows this pattern. It is packed with new features.
Conclusion: At more than $400, Corel Painter 12 isn't for lightweights. But serious creative professionals, concept artists, and semi-professional hobbyists won't find a better program for showing off their creative talent.
Pros: Best program at mimicking real-world properties of paint and canvases on screen. New kaleidoscope tool lets neophytes make stunning art before they're fully proficient with the software.
Cons: Remains sluggish at times, despite performance improvements. Steep learning curve for new adopters.
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.
Summary: Painter gilt seit Jahren als Referenz für natürliche Malergebnisse am PC und Mac. Im Gegensatz zu vielen Filtern und den Bordwerkzeugen von Programmen wie Photoshop liefert Painter eine deutlich größere Auswahl an Werkzeugen mit. Die Werkzeuge lassen sich sehr genau steuern und miteinander kombinieren. Unterschiedliche Untergründe oder Papierstrukturen simuliert der Painter verblüffend genau.
