The Easy-to-Use Home Art Studio
Corel Painter Essentials 4 is the simple-to-use home art studio that makes it easy for you to sketch, paint and 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 sketching and painting on a blank canvas. Based on the world's most powerful painting and illustration software, Corel Painter, it's the ideal way to get started with digital art!

You can create a painting from a photo in just three steps:
– 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
– Choose one of the preset painting styles from the menus on the Auto-Painting Palette to get the look you want
– Let new Smart Stroke technology create stunning paintings—with brush strokes that follow the form of your photo!

The Drawing and Painting workspace is designed to put the tools you need at your finger tips.
– Identify and choose brushes easily with the New Brush Drawer
– Go back to recently used brushes quickly with Brush History
– Organize your favorite brushes in one spot for easy access
– Select paint colors with a single click on the New Colors palette
– Create new colors easily with the convenient New Mixer palette
