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.
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.
