  • Painter 8...

    I am sorry if i have added this in the wrong place, I have now got Corel Painter 8, not the 9 or 10 i got the 8, now playing with the program i see it uses scripts, does anyone know any sites that have scripts for Painter.

    Any sites for tutorials also would be welcomed for Painter 8 or Painter 9, i think will be the same.

    Thank you in advance for any help.

    (*Tell* Thank you hun for the tutorial on *Masks* I have been doing them totally different, your way is easier! for sure).

    ***Ps...I am still using the mouse as i do not have the tablet and pen as yet***

          Don't worry about Painter 10: it's not out yet. Ver 9.0 is the most recent.

          Scroll down near the bottom of this thread for some Painter tutorials:

          re: Scripts in Painter
          These are completely different than scripts in PSP and Photoshop. In Painter the scripts record brush strokes, not menu commands.

          So if you have the scripting function on it allows you to recreate a painting. This comes in handy if you create the prototype at 8"x12". You can then increase the canvas to 30"x40" and play the script. Supposedly it will scale the strokes accordingly. A 30"x40" piece would take a LONG time to recreate manually. With a script, you just launch it and come back in a couple hours (or however long it takes to complete.)

          I suppose you could download scripts others have created, but I'm not aware of anyone doing that.

          A Yahoo group that might be of intest to you:

          It's not real active in terms of message traffic, but there seem to be some real sharp people who participate and answer questions.

          = = = = = =


          Some real serious Painter users frequent that forum.

          Jinny Brown: One of the best.

          Now, if this doesn't keep you awake, NOTHING will! (LOL)

            I wasn't aware either but couldn't answer Legacy as well as you've done Danny. You've just turned on a light bulb for moi and it's much appreciated.

              Jinny Brown is one of the premier users / teachers of Painter. She's a regular contributor to numerous Painter venues, including the Corel Painter newsgroup and very deservedly is held in very high regard by the Painter community. ~Danny~

              Painter: Oil Painting Cloner Technique
              by Axleuk
              I have written a tutorial for Painter that concentrates on creating a Painterly effect using a photgraph and the Cloner brush.

              I recommended a thread to aid those people just starting out with Painter (myself including), to be able to follow this technique and get to grips with a couple...

              WTB-Older copy of Painter
              by raven4ns
              Has anyone seen older copies of Painter for sale? I was thinking about Painter X or IX, for example, as a way to inexpensively acquire Painter. Corel offers a trial of Painter XI and I have PE4 but wondered if anyone has seen or knows of someone who wants to sell an older version of Painter. Thank ...
