Re: How do I learn to use Corel Painter 2017?
Welcome to the forum, you've come to the right place to get some help.
Is there a particular reason you need to use Painter? IMHO, Corel Painter is one of the more complicated of the digital painting programs. There are many tutorials online, a videos on Youtube, and folks here who use the program that will be happy to answer questions.
Personally, I found it really overwhelming a few years ago and switched. I'm not trying to discourage you, it's a great program, but if you find the learning curve steep, be assured that there are other options.
A while back we had a survey thread on what programs people are using and why. I can't find it, so I guess it's time for a new one.
