    Hi Jeanie

    That would be great!
    They do seem to offer a variety of classes for Painter. I rather like the new format of the Application. It has changed a lot since Version 2 and 4.

    In Version 4, I mostly used it to make Backgrounds for my Photoshop art work.

    Now I'm off to Digital Illustration class using Illustrator 10 and refresh my drawing skills.

    Thanks,
    Marj

    FWIW, I signed up for the class yesterday. I figured it was the only way I'd ever actually take Painter 8 out of it's box and install it - much less use it! It starts Sunday, so we'll see how it goes. I'll do my best to report back here.

    Hi!

    If you happen to take that class, be sure to let us know what you think?

    Sometimes I think that you only get out of a class what you are willing to put into it, work wise.

    I hope that you like it, because I am thinking about giving it a try after the first of next year.

    Thanks,
    Marj

    I have not taken any of these classes, I read about it here:

    http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/re...essage=5793122

    You might read what she says about it.

    All of the classes that I have taken have been at my local Community Junior College. However I have now taken most of them over the past several years and thought this might be one to try.

    They do not teach a Painter class where I go to school

    Marem,

    Have you tried any of the classes at that site. Even for as low as $20, is it worth it?

    Hi and Thank You!

    Here's one more that you might want to check out!

    I am thinking about doing this after my next class which starts next week.

    I would like to apologize for not getting back sooner. That was very nice of you to take the time to give me all those sites.
    Just wanted to catch up and say thank you.

    I find very little about using Painter for photo-art, probably because it is more of a Painting tool than bitmap editor. But here some links that might help you get started.

    The first tutorial at the following site is a "from scratch" method, but instead of sketching you could use Painter 8's sketch tool. Or if that is too much to start with, drop down to the Painter Tracing Paper tutorial

    http://www.artmixer.com/tutorials.htm

    Here is a link to what I consider "must have" brushes for Painter

    http://www.pixelalley.com/Painter7/p...7_brushes.html

    Here is the main page for the same site:

    http://www.pixelalley.com/pixelalley...ons-pages.html

    Here are a few more tutorials for specific effects

    http://www.rapartz.com/tutorials/tutorials.htm

    And a list of links

    http://graphicssoft.about.com/cs/paintercommunity/

    BTW, I didn't upgrade to Painter 8, so I can't tell you if those brush-loading instructions are still good for version 8. You would have to check this in the manual or some other source.

    Hey, Bob:

    Good questions...

    RE: Now that you have CP8, do you know where there are some forums or tutorial sites (besides Artistry) for using CP8 on Photo Images.
    Not specifically at the moment, but if/when I find them, I'll share my discoveries.

    RE: most things I find on the internet are for from scratch artist and not image enchancement artist
    That's been my observation as well. Maybe this means we need to develop scratch artist skills! (Not in my lifetime!)

    RE: I believe P8 is more imposing then PS7
    In its own way I'd agree. Rather than trying to learn Painter via the hodgepodge/willy-nilly method like I've learned (and continue to learn PS), my hope is that an organized, scripted and instructor led class will help me bypass a lot of the trial and (mostly) error pain.

    RE: Maybe among your other hats you will start a forumn here or at DPReview to cater to this group of individuals.
    Not likely at DPR, since it doesn't even have a photo-art forum (in general). As far as RetouchPRO, time will tell. Never say never. There's no doubt that I'll gladly share methods/techniques as I learn them.

    CP8 I believe is more imposing then PS7? Well I just thought I would ask.
    Thanks

    PS: Gladyou found a local class I asked here and its like class for PS7 a big DUH sound.

    Any chance of you painting me up a large-ish image of randomly oriented brush strokes, in a medium to lighter hue/value?

    The larger the better, dpi is not too important, resample may add artifacts, but they won't affect the final image. Larger means I can move it about to get the best overlay effect.
