The Power of Selections in Corel Painter 12 And a Precursor to My Next Cloning Video

Hello Everyone,

I am still planning another video on cloning that will be a bit more complex than the cloning techniques with the Cardinal in an earlier post.  I will use selections, channels, and layer masks in the technique.  I thought it is best to cover those topics before we get to the cloning to make sure we are all on the same page.  I am not covering selections  in the cloning process; I will do that in the cloning video.  I designed these video tutorials to give you an understanding of selections in general.

The first video is about basic selections, which most of you will already know.  You can skip it if you like, unless of course, you are new to Painter, then I would suggest you watch it.

The next video covers a topic that is new for a lot of you.  Auto Select is a very powerful selection tool and allows you to select things like Paper Texture or Image Luminance.  It is a very cool feature; I am sure you will want to check it out.

Third video may also be new for you.  It is about Color Select, which allows you to select a range of colors.  Again, this is very cool stuff.

I wasn’t sure I wanted to add the last video using Auto Select with Off Set Sampling, but decided to include it.  Using Off Set Sampling is the only way I know to use certain parts of Auto Select.  Combining the two features is amazing.  It seems complex at first, but once you get used to setting it up, the features are very useful.

OK…that’s it for this post.  As always, please feel free to post a comment and I will try to answer any questions you may have.  Don’t forget, if you want notification via email when I make a post, be sure to become a subscriber.
