Corel Painter IX.5 software |
Photographers choose Corel Painter IX 5 because it is the ideal tool to help them generate additional revenue by creating hand-crafted paintings from their photographs. The new Photo Painting Palettes that are now offered in Corel Painter IX.5 further simplify this creative process. "Corel Painter IX is sparking an exciting trend among professional photographers who are offering their customers artistic renderings and beautiful painted portraits in addition to photographs. We want to make it simple for a photographer, who might not have artistic training, to start working in this exciting medium," said Sean Young, Product Manager for Corel Painter. "First introduced in Corel Painter Essentials 3, the Photo Painting Palettes in Corel Painter IX.5 add a new dimension of ease of use. Now photographers have new tools to help them get started with the photo-painting process, while still enjoying all the professional capabilities that can be found only in this painting software."
