• Tablet tilt will let you control the width of your brush strokes by adjusting the angle of your pen. A vertical pen angle will create a thin brush stroke, while a slanted one will create a wider stroke giving you the perfect feel for accomplishing something like shading an image.
So what has been enhanced with this version of Corel Painter 11?
• Velocity control has been enhanced to give you more control over media deposits when using your tablet and pen. As you speed up your pen, thinner brush strokes with less media are applied. As you slow down your speed, more will be applied to a thicker stroke.
• Color management interface has been redesigned and simplified to give you more control over your color profiles when creating new files, opening existing Painter files, or opening files of other types. This will give you more accurate color representation when switching between applications, or exchanging files with others.
• Selection tools have been improved giving you more control and better results. The Marquee tool allows for more precise selections, and the Magic Wand tool more accurately selects designated areas.
• Copy and paste functionality has been enhanced to give you more precision and faster performance. In addition, you can now copy content from multiple layers, all visible layers, and even the canvas if it is visible.
• Color recognition gives you the ability to import an image created in Photoshop, or a scanned image or photo, and Corel Painter 11 will recognize the individual color profile that is associated with it. This way the color properties are preserved when exchanging artwork and will give you the ability to maintain color consistency.
• Photoshop support has been improved to better allow you to open Adobe Photoshop PSD files in Corel Painter 11 with layer masks, alpha channels, layer merge modes, and layer sets (groups) maintained.
• File format support now provides support for Portable Network Graphics (PNG) files to go along with the support for PSD, PSP, TIFF, BMP, PCX, TGA, GIF, JPEG, PICT, MOV, AVI, and EPS.
