I don't know if this is the right forum for this, or whether this is an old question, but many moons ago there was something called Fauve Matisse that I thought was a good mimic for actual bristle and canvas. It's apparently no longer made, and I can't seem to find any good replacement for it. Does anyone know whether it's still available, or whether there are any good replacements for it?

Fauve Matisse was a 3rd Party filter application add on for graphics programs.
It was purchased in '96 by Macromedia, who then integrated it into their program, xRes.
Last year, Macromedia was purchased by Adobe, so your best bet at this time, would be a combination of Photohsop Elements, and Corel's KPT package, which would get you close to most of the effects.

3rd party filter app? I could swear I used it as a stand alone program.

An old article on Fauve Matisse that I found:

I owned and used Fauve's Mattise program along with KPT Power tools. It was one of the best programs available at the time for natural media. I even have some old .MAT files which are unreadable for XP as Matisse was never upgraded to XP at all. Here is an image I did in Matisse and KPT.

It was an enjoyable program to work with and when Painter came along I saw it as the only alternative for Matisse. So happy Painter exists!!

:D

I loved it too. I've always found shortcomings with the programs I've tried since. I suspected it was gone (since I couldn't find any hint of it) but I was hoping... I'll check out Painter.

My first visit to this site. There is a good program called Paint.NET which does a simple job of painting, correcting, managing photos and it is FREE. You all may want to try it if you haven't already.

Best wishes. Like all your work.

I tried to go there, but the url changes and apparently the site has moved. However, a search revealed the new location:

Looks like a good program, I'm going to try it. Thanks.

I have a free little program called ArtRage, which sort of mimics what Fauve Matisse did, but not as well.
