Corel Painter 2018
Artists of every stripe – fine art, comic art, photo art – rely on Corel Painter to create original works, as its natural media methodology uses tech to mimic paint on canvas.
As with many mature products, it’s hard to fathom improvements in historical software that’s already so deep and complete. But each year Corel tries, and with Painter 2018, it has managed to add significant enhancements and new features to the roster – Thick Paint, enhanced Cloning, and 2.5D texture brushes.
Improved drip and liquid brush technologies let you paint on an empty layer and then blend with underlying brushstrokes.
From its better photo art and composite capabilities, new clone-source options, updated interface, and distinctive texture synthesis, Painter 2018 expands and intensifies artistic potential for almost all users.
