Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Corel Painter may be best known by fine artists whose Painter work hangs in galleries worldwide. But increasingly, photographers are recognizing the software's amazing potential. Now there's a book on Painter specifically for photographers: professionals, serious amateurs, and anyone who wants to bring painterly effects to their digital images.

If you want step-by-step procedures, you'll find them here: Martin Addison walks you through everything from changing paper texture to creating pastel portraits. If you want a handy reference to Painter's key features for photographers, you'll find that, too: concise guidance (and full-color examples) for everything from felt pens to distortion to Sumi-e. If you're just starting out, a quick Painter primer will get you going; if you're upgrading, Addison covers powerful new features like RealBristle brushes and the new Photo Painting palettes. Simple, practical, and gorgeous, this book will help you realize images you've never even imagined. Bill Camarda, from the October 2007 Read Only
