I am so excited. Download your free trial copy of Painter 2016.
Yes it is that time again; Corel released a new version of Painter. I think you will want Painter 2016; it is the best version I have seen to date. I have outlined some of the new features for you:
- A completely new Welcome Window. Corel added tutorials plus a few other surprises.
- New color schemes for your workspace.
- A new shift start that protects custom content, like brushes, custom palettes, etc.
- Enhanced layer blending, which allows blending to transparency without the white or black issues in earlier versions.
- ABR import…you can import Photoshop ABR dabs into Painter. Wow!
- New custom palette toolbox, which allows you to send a custom palette as a toolbox to your friends. The box includes brushes, papers, and flow maps, which will be automatically installed on your friend’s computer.
- New full-screen mode allows an immersive painting experience.
- Rotate papers.
- Rotate flow maps
- Particle technology added to liquid inks. Love it!
- Particle technology added to watercolor. Love it!
- Impasto can be added to particle brushes. Amazing!
- New Dynamic Speckle particles…think tamed particle technology that can be used with any other brush method.
- New Dynamic Speckle bristles…think particles can work like bristles. One of my favorite new features.
- Audio Expression…what? Watch your brushes explode to the beat of your favorite music…what?
- Painter is more stable than ever.
- Painter is faster than ever.
I am sure I have forgotten something, but those are the major features. BTW, I can’t test it myself, but others have and Painter 2016 works well with Windows 10.
As with earlier versions, I am offering a class exploring all new features in Corel Painter 2016. Registration for Registration Corel Painter 2016, starts today, Aug 10, 2015, at the Digital Art Academy. Class begins, Aug 15, 2015. I cover each new feature in-depth, but I did something different with this class. Because there is the new shift start and it is easier than ever to import workspaces from earlier versions, I started with a complete clean Painter 2016 and show you how to build or customize your Painter to use your work flow. Join the class and develop your Painter workspace and learn all about the new features in the process. It will be fun, I promise.
Here is a teaser video showing a little bit about Dynamic Speckle Bristle brush technology.
