Corel Painter 12

by Marco Tabini

Corel has released version 12 of Corel Painter [1], one of the longest-running graphics applications for the Mac. The new release comes with a number of enhancements, including much-improved performance and a user interface that can be fully customized to fit each user’s needs. The main new feature, however, is Painter’s support for new realistic brushes, which, according to the company [2], reproduce the “movement and feeling of traditional art on canvas” when used with a graphics tablet. A free 30-day trial version is available. ($429 new, $229 upgrade, 297 MB)
