Corel ESDPE5MLPCM overview

  • 1Description

This download version of Corel Painter Essentials 5 is the latest version of this advanced digital painting and drawing program that features a wealth of tools and modes that are streamlined for art enthusiasts and emerging photo artists. Together, these tools are designed to accurately simulate the look and feel of physical drawing and painting with the convenience and control of a computer. Painter Essentials 5 integrates a host of modes, tools, and features to enhance the overall working process and to provide efficiency and seamlessness in how you operate within the interface.

A selection of customizable options are available for fine-tuning personal use in the program, as well as Wacom Tablet support, so that working within Painter Essentials 5 becomes as intuitive as possible. This application utilizes Natural Media Tools in order to emulate the most realistic appearances of materials with respect to bushes and pens to help render your vision as accurately as possible.

New to Painter Essentials 5 are Particle Brushes, Jitter Brushes, Mirror Painting, Kaleidoscope Painting, as well as a customizable interface. Updates include real-time effects previews, enhanced brushstroke previews, a brush tracking utility, and a navigator panel for even more efficiency while working within the program. Plus, native support is now given for 64-bit Mac and 64-bit Windows operating systems.

New and Enhanced Features

Particle Brushes
New Particle Brushes offer a quick way to produce interesting and organic shapes. The brushes create chaotic or controlled strokes by originating particles from a central point and making lines and patterns as they move across the canvas. The behavior of the particles can be adjusted based on pressure, tilt, velocity, and other control factors.
Jitter Brushes
Jitter brushes are available to help mimic randomness or "happy accidents" that can occur when working with physical materials. These brushes can be used to create an even more organic and natural looking appearance depending on preference.
Mirror Painting
In the Mirror Painting mode, a plane appears that allows one half of an object to be painted while Painter Essentials 5 automatically replicates a mirror image of the opposing side of the object by reproducing the brushstrokes. For example, to create a symmetrical face, simply paint one half of the face and Painter Essentials 5 automatically completes the other half.
Kaleidoscope Painting
Kaleidoscope Painting allows brushstrokes to be transformed into a colorful and symmetrical kaleidoscope image. When a brushstroke is painted in one kaleidoscope segment, multiple reflections of the brushstroke appear in the other segments.
Customizable User Interface
Customizable user interface options allow you to easily switch between tools and optimize your painting environment.
Real-Time Preview of Effects
Add effects to your work and see them displayed on your canvas in real-time as they're applied. Now your entire canvas offers a world of effects experimentation--all completely in real-time.
Brush Tracking Utility
Now you can control pressure sensitivity to virtually any brush.
Native 64-Bit Application for Mac and PC
Performance improvements for your computer mean faster speeds when it comes to intensive operations. Zoom, rotate, transform, and more--all without slowing down. Plus, experience improvements to brush accuracy and performance.

Other Features

Corel ESDPE5MLPCM reviews

Painter Essentials 5 (Download) is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A less expensive alternative Does most of what I need for photo painting and digital painting (natural media emulation) at a fraction of the cost of Painter. I'm glad it's an option.
Date published: 2015-02-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good painting program for photographers I only just started using it on my photos which I use to blend with the photographic layer. It really adds some zip to the photos.
Date published: 2015-02-12
Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT I purchased Corel Painter Essentials 5 and when it arrived it would not load. I contacted Corel's product support on six occasions about this. Each time they said that they would get back to me. They never have. If support is no good then you cannot rely on the product. Save your money and go elsewhere for any Corel products.
