Corel Rolls Out New Can of Painter
This brings us to the announcement that Corel has released a new version of Painter, Corel Painter X. I've not yet had a chance to use the newest version, but I can tell you that anyone who has ever held a brush in their hands should be using Painter on their computer. If you want to get the most out of Painter, you should be using a Wacom Tablet. This can make it feel like you really have a brush in hand, with your strokes appear on your monitor instead of a canvas. This has been enhanced with support for even more of the tablets in Wacom's product line and the RealBristle Painting System introduced in this release.
If you are working on one of the newer operating systems, you'll also find that the new Painter X works on both Windows Vista and Mac OS X. There is also improved support for Adobe's Photoshop PSD file format.
Best of all, the can is back! Painter was unique in that it shipped in a real paint can. For a short time users in North America can get Painter in a can again. This is still the best packaging I've ever seen for a software product.
