painter still in use?

By ted on Tuesday, May 01, 2001 - 02:06 pm:

an illustrator is looking for some software to start with. he's specialised in illustrations for biologybooks for schools.

i know illustrator and photoshop. but i thought may be painter could be something for him. i think that no-one uses it, not in holland though. but i'm not sure about the rest of the world. and how it will connect with the graphic enviroment i work in.

any ideas?

Painter is currently at version 6; it is now a Corel product. They have simplified & improved the user interface and changed it to use Photoshop-compatible layers rather than the original "floaters" concept.

Also please know that you get Painter "classic" (i.e. a "light" version) free in the box (as well as Photoshop LE) when you buy the Wacom Graphire tablet & stylus -- which costs less than $100 USD.

Cool painter 7

painter is the best illustration and art creation software around. in my opinion. the support for wacom drivers is superior to photoshop. the airbrush is very good, something i use almost exclusively in painter. the new painter 7 is out now but it has it's problems. currently P6 is more stable. but i'm sure a patch for 7 will be coming soon.

well doug i'm replying to your post you placed on the painter newsgroup
great forum you have here. you might want to post a similar message at-

http://www.talkgraphics.com

So you did, so you did

But where's those examples of photo restoration using Painter you mentioned?

Are you going to try any of our Challenges using Painter?

Hi G,

Thanks for the link. I bookmarked it for future reference. I have Painter 6 and I got it because I got the Intous pen and it works so well with it. Wish Photoshop offered more support to the slant features of the Wacom pens. I doubt I will upgrade too soon because if I upgrade to anything it will be PS 6 from 5.5. Glad there's another Painter user I can talk with.
DJ

WOW!!! Beautiful work in both pictures. My favorite is the second one with the frame and skulls. I think your use of color and contrast is very good. It seems to draw your eyes right to it.

Do you use Painter alot? I started to use it alot but got side tracked and haven't done much with it recently. If you find anymore good painter sites you can recommend let me know.
