ArtMaster Replacement?

Getting back into Photoart after recovering from accident, illness and computer problems.
I used ArtMaster Gold and really found that letting me use the brush instead of an automated rendering was better for my style.
They are out of business now so no way to buy and I am looking for a quality program that will allow me to use brushes and paint it myself.
Can't seem to find a good replacement...anyone recommend any current programs?
How could I put ArtMaster onto a new computer when I upgrade computers?

Have you looked in the Corel applications?

I used to use an older Gertrudis product to paint on effects. They are not the same effects as ArtMaster, but they probably have a test drive for you to look at.

After playing wth a lot of different programs the one that comes the closest is GMX PhotoPainter.
I like it but finding that it takes a couple of programs to do everything I want.

Plow through the relevant results here, especially in the "Natural media/paint" section.

Re: ArtMaster Replacement?

Hi rogerc,

Your post intrigued me because I really loved using this program, but I have moved onto using TwistedBrush for most of my work now. I wonder if I could resurrect PhotoArtMaster Gold and combine it with TwistedBrush for some more art effects?

I used Fo2PIX PhotoArtMaster Gold 1.5 a while ago now and I still have the CD, so I thought I would just try to install it on Windows 7. Well, it installed just fine with no problems at all. I am using a new, high spec PC and I am amazed it went on.

So, in answer to your question as to whether it will install on new hardware, the answer is a resounding yes.

Best regards, taloch

Re: ArtMaster Replacement?

taloch, did you need to activate PhotoArtMaster? That seems to be the brick wall for most people trying to get the abandoned Fo2PIX apps going again.

I used my original serial I had written on the CD.

Best regards, taloch

Taloch,
Wow.That is great news..... I have the CD and the serial number also.
Will be upgrading my computer soon and it wounds like it will work.

I am also checking out Painter 11 and Twisted Brush.

Oops, now everybody knows the number... ;-) Glad it's working for you without the usual drama.

BTW, PostworkShop Pro has entered the version 2 public beta phase.
