Hi Marleen,Originally Posted by Noλthe [ to decrease size and the ] to increase size of the brush doesn't work here..
It does work in photoshop
I understand that there is a problem with these keys when using French and German keyboards. Here is the relevant thread which may be of use.
Is there a way where you can switch back from Photoshop CS2 and Painter IX with out losing hue and saturation in the paintings? I basically need to know what file do I have to save out as in Painter IX to bring it in Photoshop CS2? Or have they not made this compatible yet for both programs?
You need to set your color management policies in both Photoshop and Painter to the same settings in order to view images with the same onscreen color. Once this is established, save your images in the PSD format. PAinter embeds profiles in ONLY the PSD format.
In the chart below, I've set up my working space as AdobeRGB. If you prefer another working space, be sure to set it to be the same in both apps.
Monitor calibration is a key ingredient in establishing consistent color, as well.
PixelsIt's all in how you arrange them!
What does it mean to create a separate logon? And does it work for Painter 9.5 as well? I fight with Painter slowing down over a large image at the moment.When you are working in high resolution (like tegehel has to work for professional pieces) you are going to get lag...it's inevitable. One thing I have found that helps (this is a side note) if you are using win xp...create a seperate logon for just when you are painting. Over time if that's the only thing you ever do with that logon name xp will start to allocate all ram to it, etc...)
There good books up the market,about painter and I have there three buyed by amezon.I have painter the full version and it work great. You must see up the web for filters and that work great for photo's. And with desaturate's it is difficult to explain but corel give you a good help.
Have a nice day with painter
In Painter 8, I can't figure out how to simply desaturate using a (photo?) tool. (what I want to desaturate's on a layer).
Basically, I want to be able to desaturate like in Photoshop, using a brush that (de)saturates.
I've tried Photo/Saturation Add with all possible numbers and combinations, and it only adds saturation. In 7, if you tweaked some parameters you could turn anything in color into its grayscale version.
I've try Photo/Colorizing using black or white and it doesn't work.
I've looked for other tools but can't find anything other than selecting the shape and using a menu (pain in the ass).
I'm pretty sure there's a way, but I haven't found it and the help doesn't point out to anything (obvious). I don't have the manual for 8. Seven worked slightly differently, so its manual's not useful in this case.
? clues ?
Talos: I have Plenty of HD space and 1 Gig of ram. When my brush are beyond a certain size, they slow down to a crawl too. I don't know but 1 Gig should be enough, huh? My processor's "only" an AMD 2.0 but still...
I understand that holding down *Shift* is supposed to cause your brush tool to draw in angle increments, (vertically, horizontally, etc.)
However for some odd reason, that shortcut seems to have no effect for me! All the other shortcuts work fine, I can navigate, etc. Even according to the help-topics it should be so, but when I hold shift while using the brush tool, it is still free hand!
Anyone else with this problem?
BTW: This is an excellent thread, and has been very helpful in all other regards!
Q. How do you achieve your dreams and hopes?
A. Lower your expectations.
Using the Shift key to paint straight lines is pretty limited anyway since it only allows us to paint horizontal, vertical, and 45 degree angle lines.
Instead, click the V key to paint Straight Line Strokes:
1. Click at the beginning point of the line, then click and hold approximately where you want the line to end.
2. Before letting go, drag the ending point to the exact spot where you want the line to end. (While you're dragging the ending point, you'll see a thin "wire" indicating the line so you can tell where it will be when you let go.)
3. Let go to end that line.
4. Click and hold again at a new ending point to continue the line at another angle, drag to place that new ending point exactly where you want it, then let go to complete the second connected straight line.
5. Repeat Step 4 to continue drawing connected straight lines.
6. Click the V key again to begin a new straight line in a different location.
7. Click the B key to return to Freehand Strokes.
I have the "[ and ]" set as the buttons on my pen tool so i can quickly change brush size. This works very well on my crap toshiba laptop where I only need to press and hold the pent tool button and the sizes zoom along. Does anyone know how to set the buttons to continually increment with a press and hold? On my desktop it moves one size per press.....which is very slow. Any ideas?
I'll be taking these Huggies and uh..whatever cash you got!
I have a question regarding notifications from this topic - I get some from time to time (just got one now), but see no real posts added. What's going on?
Idea - it would be good to change the topic name from "Painter 8" into "Painter" alone, since we've got Painter 12 ATM. Or pass here a link to a newer Painter topic if there is one. But a general Painter topic would be the best, as for example I am still using Painter 9.5, while trial of Painter 12 with a really nice looking layout worked strangely on my computer and got kick out quickly.
