The second giveaway of the day is for Painter Essentials 4 which is again a Corel Product. Painter Essentials 4 is based on the world’s most powerful painting and illustration software, Corel Painter.

Other Giveaway of the day: Corel Digital Studio 2010

Corel Painter Essentials 4 is the simple-to-use home art studio that makes it easy for you to draw, paint or turn your photos into paintings. Two new workspaces put the tools you need at your fingertips, whether you’re turning a photo into a painting, or drawing and painting on a blank canvas. Plus, Corel Painter Essentials 4 includes an incredible selection of brushes, paints, pens and paper textures for adding unique touches to photos or creating cards, scrapbooks and other fun projects. With handy tools, brushes, paints and effects, you’ll find new ways to work with photographs and express your vision.

The bright yet nondistracting interface is divided into two tabbed workspaces: Drawing & Painting and Photo Painting. Tool icons and slider controls are larger, therefore much easier to control with a pen tablet. Painter Essentials also comes with Painter X’s Image Hose and Pattern Pen brushes, which spew out patterns and streams of little photographic images of objects like flowers and butterflies.


Create a painting from a photo in just 3 steps

  1. Open the photo you want to paint in the Source Image palette. Your photo will be saved with the Painter Essentials file format, so it’s easy to return to a project later.
  2. Choose one of the preset painting styles from the menus on the Auto-Painting palette to get the look you want.
  3. Let new Smart Stroke technology help you create stunning paintings with brush strokes that follow the natural lines and contours in your photo.


Corel Painter Essentials 4 – Features

  • The simple-to-use home art studio that makes it easy for you to draw, paint or turn your photos into paintings–the ideal way to get started with digital art
  • Enhanced Photo Painting System reduces the complexity of turning a photo into a painting
  • Incredible selection of brushes, paints, pens and paper textures for adding unique touches to photos or creating cards, scrapbooks and other fun projects
  • Compatible with Intel and PowerPC Macs, Windows Vista, the entire Wacom product line, and major photo-editing applications
  • Tutorial-based guidebook and accompanying video tutorials/sample files teach you the application while you complete fun, instructional projects

Have a look at the set of brushes provided with Painter Essentials 4



At $100 (discounted price : $50), Painter Essentials is a very reasonably priced and powerful painting package that can produce some truly impressive results with a minimal amount of effort. It’s designed to help beginners or non-artists create digital art and turn photos into art work. Although it’s more limited than Painter, Essentials provides a satisfying set of tools and effects for exploring digital art without overwhelming the user with too many options.

  • Andrew Johnson

    My wife recently bought me a graphic tablet and pen so that I could learn to draw on my PC as she loves the little cartoons I doodle for her. Being disabled and trapped at home all day, my PC is my connection to the world outside my door. This software would be a great tool, with all its excellent features. I’ve only really used windows Paint and MS photo editor with the tablet so far. I tried it with a freebie/demo of Adobe Photoshop Essentials, but the tablet did not want to work properly with it. I’m not sure if it was a driver issue, or just some calibration issue. It would be a wonderful addition to my stocking, hanging by the fireplace.

  • Ryan

    Nice program from a respected software maker would love to win this program because I use programs like this but this one provides better options.

  • Carrie

    I followed up , hoping to be the lucky winner of corel-digital-studio-2010: A managing software to organize and view all the videos, photos and music in one place? I was always confused by clicking open folders in folders and search for photos or music audios. If there is one such great managing program with editing function, why not have a try? I hope I am lucky enough to be the winner to get this box. If not, I am still lucky to know such an digital studio.

    However, if I wasn’t so lucky to get corel-digital-studio-2010, corel-painter-essentials-4 would be also great for me.
