Corel Painter IX adds a range of tools and features that increase performance, fuel creativity and further extend compatibility with other industry-standard tools and applications. With improved Help features, tutorials by world-class digital artists and free access to selected lynda.com training videos, getting started with Corel Painter IX is easier than ever.

Performance and Productivity
Increasing the overall speed, performance and stability of Corel Painter IX was Corel's top priority. Working closely with Apple, Intel and AMD, Corel engineers created improvements and efficiencies wherever possible. Corel Painter has never been a more efficient and powerful application.

Corel Painter IX significantly narrows the gap between digital and natural media. An impressive array of new features provides unprecedented power to replicate natural media, and dazzling new effects offer more options than ever.

The ability to use Corel Painter in conjunction with other industry-standard software and hardware is greater than ever. New color-management enhancements enable printer colors to be reproduced more accurately on screen and in print. Extended support for Adobe Photoshop and Wacom pen tablets streamlines a professional workflow.

With improved Help features, a revitalized User Guide, tutorials from leading graphics professionals, free access to selected training videos from lynda.com, and courseware specifically designed for educators, getting started with Corel Painter IX has never been easier!

Favorite Features
If you're a long-time Corel Painter user, you can continue to enjoy the favorite features that have been the cornerstones of the application for years. Whether you're a commercial designer, artist or photographer, the following features let you leverage your natural talents and techniques to create original works of art, and they distinguish Corel Painter from other applications.

Brushes are the heart and soul of Corel Painter IX. There are more than 30 brush categories, ranging from crayons, chalk and charcoal to acrylics, watercolor, artists' oils and liquid ink. While most brush categories mirror the look and feel of traditional brushes, others offer a one-of-a-kind creative tool.

Brush Control palettes provide quick, easy access to the settings for every brush control. Brushes are organized into distinct categories, each featuring a multitude of variants.

Oil brushes produce the effects expected from oil paints. All brush variants in this category cover underlying brush strokes, many are capable of multicolored strokes, and others interact with underlying pixels to create realistic effects.

Watercolor brush variants produce natural-looking watercolor effects. Almost all brush variants in the Watercolor category interact with the canvas texture. For most of these variants, stylus pressure affects the width of the brush stroke. As with traditional-media watercolor brushes, increased pressure widens a brush stroke and reduced pressure narrows a stroke.

Painting with a cloner brush is similar to painting with any Corel Painter brush, except that cloner brush variants take their color information from a clone source, such as a pattern or another image, instead of from the Colors palette. Some cloner brush variants reproduce a source image directly. Other cloner brush variants reproduce a source image with low opacity and soft edges, or they use paper grain and specialized dabs for particular media effects.

Brush Creator
Corel Painter IX offers a large and varied brush collection. In addition, you can customize your brushes. Brush Creator allows you to create custom brushes by providing three flexible options for designing a brush: a) randomly modify an existing brush, b) combine the characteristics of two brushes, or c) create a custom brush from scratch.

In the real world, an artist's brush or drawing tool produces different results when applied to surfaces with different textures. Corel Painter allows you to control the texture of the canvas to achieve the results you'd expect from natural media on a given surface. Brushes interact with paper grain, just as natural tools react with the texture of the surfaces beneath them.
