What would it be like to dip your paintbrush into a photograph? What would it be like to paint with leaves and clouds? What would it be like to never run out of canvas or oil paint? All of these things are possible in Painter. Corel Painter 12 represents the gold standard of digital, natural media emulation software. It's like having an entire art store inside your computer. You don't have to wait for paint to dry, nor do you ever have to run out of it. If you paint a stroke you don't like, you can undo it and try again, and you never have to clean up the mess when you're finished.
If you come from a traditional art background, you can transfer your skills to Painter and create artwork from scratch. If you are an absolute beginner, you can even hand the brushes over to Painter and let it transform your favorite photos into a painted result. Then there is the through the looking glass side of Painter. Paint with bits of photographs to create highly-textured imagery, paint and draw into a kaleidoscope, or paint on layers that you can change at any time. Painter takes significant advantage of pen tablet input.
Using a pen stylus with six axes of motion input, Painter's mark making tools faithfully react to your expressive gestures. So what does all this mean? Tools like Painter enable mixing different expressive media in ways never before possible. Formerly exclusive media, like photography and painting, can now coexist in the same space. Forms of mark making impossible in the past are now child's play. In the digital age, it seems like nothing is impossible and Painter is doing its part to make this a reality.
