Introduction & Corel Painter News

Hi All:

My name is John Derry and, as one of Painter's original authors (along with Mark Zimmer and Tom Hedges), I have been involved with Painter since about day one. I've been a longtime lurker in many of the online Painter forums, newsgroups, etc. That's about to change.

I'm happy to report that Corel has engaged me as Painter's Ambassador-at-Large. In this capacity I will be making occasional Painter-related announcements in newsgroups and web forums so users can stay on top of all things Painter. So you can expect to see me hanging around these parts...and don't be shy to drop me a line.

I thought you may also be interested to know about some new Painter news that was announced today (7/12/05):

1. Painter IX 9.1 Update is now available! Here are a few of the highlights of this update:

Dual monitor support in Windows versions has been significantly improved. You no longer have to stretch the application window across both monitors. Palettes, toolbars and the toolbox can now be moved outside the application window. Dialog boxes will appear on the same monitor as the active canvas.

The Digital Airbrush has been significantly improved over Painter IX, resulting in much smoother appearance.

In some isolated instances, corruption appeared in RIFF files after saving. This has been fixed and no longer happens in Painter 9.1. Extra special thanks to those of you who sent in your files to help us pinpoint this issue!

Find out more and download it at:

http://www.corel.com/servlet/Satelli...rel+Painter+IX

2. For a limited time Corel is offering the Painter IX at the Upgrade price if you have *any* previous version Painter (including Classic/Essentials), or any product from Corel, or any other graphics apps including Photoshop, Freehand, etc.

Find out more at:

http://store.corel.com/webapp/wcs/st...atalogId=10103

That's all from me for now.

Cheers,

John Derry

Welcome, John:

It's a privilege having you join us.

The "Painter IX" for the "upgrade price" is a terrific deal. I hope many folks take advantage of that.

I look forward to seeing your future contributions.

~Danny~

I apologize for falsely raising your expectations. Corel is divided up into marketing regions, each with their own autonomy over pricing policies. As you noted, the unit controlling the Pacific region is not participating in the Painter special. It is limited to the U.S., Canada, and the U.K.

In any announcements of future Painter deals, I'll make sure that I include the participating regions by name.

Thanks for your feedback!

Thanks for the quick response John. No problem, you're safe, I don't tote a gun I'd seen a similar 'special' advertised on another Forum in recent times and was hoping it just may include OZ this time around.
