G'day all,

I have just recently purchased Painter 9.
Until now I have been a 'Photoshop CS2' person annd love everything Photoshop does however doing a bit of research their definetly seems to be a place for Painter as well.

Can anyone steer me to some basic tutorials please?

I have purchased the Painter 9 Wow book which is great.

Many thanks,

Maria

Here is a great intro to the program:

Download the videos and you should be set for the basics.

And if you ever have a desire to explore more tutorials, both for PS and Painter.

Hi flaggies,

Welcome to Painter IX. You're going to love it!

There are some basic tutorials on the Painter IX Website accessible by going to the Painter IX Help menu and clicking Tutorials, or go to the same page using this link:

Also read the Corel Painter newsletter, "The Painter Canvas". In each issue there are tips and tutorials. On the page linked below, you can subscribe and receive the newsletter via e-mail each month. Click the "Sign up" link near the bottom of the page:

Some free video demo for Painter 8 at this site:

http://www.computer-training-software.com/painter-8.htm

The blue links down the lefthand side will provide your with those most basic knowledge on using Painter 8, most of which should be applicable to Painter 9 to get you started.

Thanks for the links, Smokin. I checked Swoops page and there's loads of good stuff, some outdated, some links not working, but still some good things for both Painter and Photoshop artists.


For anyone interested in downloading brushes on Swoop's page, under Brushes:

The link named "Goros brushes for Photoshop" is for a .rar file and when trying to download it, I get the following error message:


Not Found
The requested URL /temp/goro_brushes.rar was not found on this server.


The link named "Ryan Church Painter 6 brushes" is not a Painter brush download. It's a Custom Palette created for Painter 6 that will not work in following Painter versions.

The link named "Brushes from Ballistic @ cgtalk" is not a Painter brush download. It's a 2,304 kb ZIP file containing (based on his demo image) 11 individual images that can be used as Paper textures in Painter or other programs.

The link named "Brushes from Creativemac" is a link to a page on the Creative Mac site where there are only Photoshop brushes to download. However, there are a few Painter brush downloads and more Photoshop brush downloads available on the Creative Mac site on this page:

Corel Painter Brushes and Adobe Photoshop Brushes (http://www.creativemac.com/articles/listarticle.jsp?type=downloads)

The link named "Linda Bergkvists Brushes" is an .abr file so it appears to be Photoshop brushes.
