PSP9/painter9

I am a registered user of psp 9 but I see that corel have also got software called painter 9. Can any member with use of both programs tell me if corel painter 9 has far superior tools, or for an amateur user/hobbist would I gain much further benefit?

Re: PSP9/painter9

It would depend on what you need the program for. Painter is a program that is the best painting progam on the market at the moment the recreates natural media. I have used Painter since version 6 and have 7 and 8 but can't afford verison 9, I love the program.

I also use PSP and have since version 5, and have all versions since, until version 9 haven't used it for painting and though version 9's media brushes have great potetial they are limited compared with Painter, however where PSP shines for me in in Photo work I use it for photo restoration and correction. The other thing PSP has going for it is it is a porwer house tool with a great affordable price, and for many people a great all round graphic tool. My first PSP 9 painting is in another thread here http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=229081

Also Fugitive uses PSP for many of his paintings and there are a number of others who started their painting with PSP before getting Painter.

Both are fine programs !

Re: PSP9/painter9

Ditto what Edie said. If I could just have one, then it would probably be PSP since it is so versatile. Painter is without a doubt the best program for digital painting but psp9 can do almost anything on the painting end that painter can. It's just not as easy. On the other hand, psp excels at most everything else.

Re: PSP9/painter9

I have PSP7 and 8 and Painter 8, (I'm like Edie I have to save up for 9
My favorite by far for painting is PSP7, very seldom use PSP8 and am just getting into Painter 8. You can do almost all that the others do with PSP7 just takes longer LOL

Re: PSP9/painter9

I,m finding when I use the paint shop pro9 art media tools the paint application is delayed (slow to appear)
Is this intentional or do I have a bug or need more application. ?
I've got 256mb video card & 1028 mb ram memory, 2600amd processor.
Would this still happen with the painter software?

I have 2.09gig Atholon, 512 DDR RAM and ATI Raedon 9550 with 256 DDR Ram and I don't have that problem with media brushes, so I haven't a clue why they would act that way for you.

Re: PSP9/painter9

Thanks for info Elvira,
Perhaps if I put a lesser pixel count canvas up on screen things might be better. What size pixel count canvas do you and other members use on these art pictures?

PSP 9 is slow, slug slow, I have Painter 7 and it's much faster. Since 8 the psp's have a mem usage problem, that may not get fixed. I have a 733/256 and can paint fine with 9, just loads slow, and crashes too much. PSP is still the best for the money, hands down.

Re: PSP9/painter9

Thanks for your personal info. At least I now know it's not my computer that suffers this problem.
