1 Ad­just­ing the set­tings

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Workshops -

One of the most im­por­tant things you should do be­fore paint­ing is ad­just­ing some of Painter’s set­tings: click Edit> Pref­er­ences> Gen­eral. On the Gen­eral tab I check Cre­ate Backup on Save. This will cre­ate an ad­di­tional backup file in case you ex­pe­ri­ence a crash or de­cide to re­vert to an older ver­sion of your work. On the In­ter­face tab you can con­fig­ure the Cur­sor Type; I set it to En­hanced brush ghost. I es­tab­lish a darker in­ter­face via the Color Theme op­tion, and ad­just De­fault View Mode to Sin­gle Doc­u­ment View, which re­moves the ad­di­tional scroll bar at the bot­tom. On the Per­for­mance tab, I set the num­ber of pro­ces­sor cores used by Painter. I’d ad­vise leav­ing the Undo lev­els at their de­fault set­ting, though.
