Corel Introduces Corel Painter X
. New! Windows Vista support - Corel Painter X is designed to run on Windows Vista.
. Enhanced! Mac OS X support - Corel Painter X supports the latest operating system from Apple.
. Enhanced! Adobe Photoshop support - Layer behavior is very similar to Adobe Photoshop, making it simple to move files between the applications. Files saved to the Photoshop (PSD) file format open in Corel Painter, with layer masks, alpha channels and layer sets (groups) maintained. Enhancements include easier layer grouping and combining, and improved support for layer merge modes. Corel Painter X also supports many Photoshop plug-ins for Mac OS X.
. Enhanced! Wacom support - With Corel Painter X, artists can use the entire Wacom product line, including the Cintiq 21 UX interactive pen display and the Intuos 3 pen tablet. In addition, the new RealBristle Painting System and the Wacom 6D Art Pen work together to take digital painting to an unprecedented level of realism.
. New! Printed User Guide - Including a Corel Painter artists' gallery, the Corel Painter X User Guide is a beautiful, color-printed manual that provides helpful information and fast solutions for new and long-time users.
. New! Jeremy Sutton training videos - For guidance and inspiration, customers can access a new collection of downloadable step-by-step training videos created by well-known Corel Painter Master Jeremy Sutton. Additional training videos by Jeremy Sutton are available for purchase.
. New! “Painter on the 'Net” tab in the Welcome book - New “Painter on the 'Net” tab provides links to Painter community resources online and monthly Tips & Tricks. In addition, the Welcome book provides quick access to recently used files, brush tracking and color management settings, while showcasing artwork from renowned Corel Painter artists.
