If so I wish you would pleae tell me how to get a decent image from that software. I have been trying to use auto paint. Have tried every combination of brush and setting I can think of and have yet to come up with anything I would consider good photo art.

Care to tell us why you like it...and pass along a few pointers?

Hi Patricia.

I have tried that, and I mostly get half photo and half photo art. I am not an artist and need all the computer help I can get. This works as a touch up method but I can't get it to work for bringing out photo art detail with this program.

I suspect that one problem is that you cannot change the brush size in auto paint and to get the better detail and less paint smears this would be what I need. In PS you start with a large brush and reduce size as you paint, giving you the amount of detail you desire. Can't do this in PE4 in auto paint.

I would like for someone to do an auto painting in this program, one that they think has good detail and a nice painterly look and tell me the steps used. If I find one path to a good result, then I may be able to go from there.

Thanks for your help. I envy the artists among you folks out there. I can see where this would be an excellent program for painting from scratch.

Steve C.

Re: Corel Painter Essentials 4 announced

Sorry i didnt explain myself too well Steve...

When you have done the auto painting...click it away and if you want great detail use the cloner brushes on the main page...to bring the outlines out...i dont think all can be done in the auto painting mode!!! When i have a mo i will see if i can find a tutorial for you...dont give up just yet...you will enjoy it once you know what is what and really you are getting there!!!

Thanks.
