Corel Painter 2016 - part 2 of 1 2

by Mike McNamee Published 01/10/2015


As always when reviewing such content-rich software the reviewer is frustrated by lack of time to really try things out but the internet is awash with tutorials and videos showing how to use Painter and its new features. You can access the tutorials directly from the program GUI.

  • Particle Shop is also new and this is a plug-in for Photoshop and Lightroom which brings Corel Painter brushes and their functionality directly in to Photoshop. It provides brushes for the creation of hair, fabric, fire, smoke, fur, dust and lightening. Judging from the examples on the web, the effects created can be quite spectacular.

 As we have said, the best way to get up to speed is via the on-line tutorials; we lost count at 100 when searching and they cover the basics through to the newest features.

Painter 2016 thankfully retains the unique charm of the program although the newer features give plenty of food for the inventive. You can download a trial version, but for many who are new to the program the asking price (£310 on the street) will provide endless hours of fun even if you never make a bean from it.
