5.0 out of 5 stars great product made even better May 3, 2009
Corel Painter is in a category all its own. While photo manipulation software comes in all sorts and layout programs abound for every skill set, Painter is a unique program that allows real art to be made directly in a digital format.

This could easily be quite a cheesy goal and a sub-par result meant more for play than serious work. Could be, but Painter does the task so well it is really astounding.

I could have said the exact same words, and have, about Painter IX, a program I have owned since it was released.

I've found that program unsurpassed in all kinds of creative goals for both web and print use, for both serious work and for creative exploration.

I was familiar with Painter IX, and yet I'm still a bit blown away by Painter 11.

It's an easy transition. Everything looks the same and so there's no major transition from the older to the newer. The main difference is in feel. Painter 11 just feels more natural. It has better response, better control, better overall simulation of the various media. Even on the Intuos3, I could always feel a strong bit of distance, and artificiality, on Painter IX. In Painter 11 I just feel so much more connected to the canvas on the screen.

Some have noted some issues with their graphics pad. I've not seen any problems at all. Perfect and easy use, even better than Painter IX in every respect.

Often, new programs try to add so much they become slower, or more complicated, or otherwise a step down in performance for the steps up in function. Painter 11 adds a whole list of new brushes and capabilities, all functioning perfect as I try them out. It does this while speeding up all the various interactions. Everything just seem so smooth.

3.0 out of 5 stars Buggy But Usable March 18, 2010
I upgraded to Corel Painter 11 from Corel Painter X.

Here are a few quick specs on my system: I'm running Painter 11 on Windows XP (2.5 GHz processor with 2.5 Gigs of memory). The tablet I use is a Wacom Graphire "Steel-Blue" Tablet.

There are a couple of major improvements in Painter 11 over its predecessors.

- Tilt Recognition
If you have a tablet with pen-tilt detection, Painter 11 makes use of the tilt feature to broaden or narrow brush strokes with the tilt of the pen - narrower strokes with the pen perpendicular to the tablet and broader strokes with the pen at an angle to the tablet. (Alas, my Graphire series tablet is not tilt-aware and thus I'm unable to take advantage this feature.)

- Velocity Recognition
Painter 11 recognizes the velocity of a brush stroke and renders the stroke accordingly.

For a complete comparison of Painter 11 with previous versions, G00g1e for "Painter_11_Family_Product_Matrix" and follow the first link to view the PDF file.

I found Painter 11 very buggy and quirky. For example, I would get the following problems sporadically:

- Brush size lever refuses to budge
After I change the brush size beyond a certain threshold, I have a problem reducing it back down in size.

- Pasted layer shows up blank
After I copy and paste a layer, the pasted layer shows up blank.

- Custom Paper Library does not save
I'm unable to save a paper library that I've created and for the life of me, I can't figure out a way to make it save.

- Bush strokes don't show up
Periodically, brush strokes fail to show up.

5.0 out of 5 stars good June 8, 2009
Verified Purchase
Works good. Very stable so far (no crashes), and no software restrictions on the educational version. A lot of the fancier brushes lag my computer, as do large brush sizes. I would recommend Ryan Church's intro to Painter for a jump-start setting up and using Painter (though the final illustration isn't great).

Favorite things about Painter: The tools are much more responsive than Photoshop's. The brush ghosting gives feedback on the mark you are about to make, and the pressure and tilt seem much more sensitive and accurate. The brush engine is of course more sophisticated than Photoshop's, though I miss Painter's control of pressure and tilt effects more than it's natural media simulation when I go back to Photoshop.

The Painter educational edition is a good value, and a good chance to get a grip on Painter before deciding whether or not to buy a full license. One oversight though is that there is no upgrade path provided with the educational edition. You would still have to pay full price to buy a full license - leaving you out a hundred dollars. I'm sure there are illegal options available and, although it is close, this educational version doesn't offer much competition to the 'free' alternative.
