Product Highlights and New Features

Corel Painter X offers a broad range of tools and features that inspire creativity, increase performance, and further extend compatibility with other industry-standard tools and applications. It delivers an impressive array of new features that provide unprecedented power to replicate traditional art media—right down to the individual bristles on the brush.

Increased Performance: Corel Painter X has been optimized to provide artists with the fastest version of Painter—ever! Depending on system hardware, brushes perform up to 35% faster—and file opening and saving is up to two times faster!

New RealBristle™ Painting System: The new RealBristle Painting System heightens the responsiveness of the brush and represents a major milestone for digital painting. Artists can now faithfully replicate the sensation of the interaction between the paint, the canvas, and the brush. See it in action.

New Composition Tools: New composition tools help artists and photographers visually arrange a blank canvas prior to sketching or painting, or create an aesthetically pleasing composition from a photo using the Divine Proportion tool and the Rule of Thirds. Used throughout history by artists, designers, and architects alike, the Divine Proportion will help you compose your paintings like the masters! Similarly, professional photographers often use the Rule of Thirds to compose their photographs. See it in action.

New Workspace Manager: Corel Painter X allows you to easily customize and back up your workspaces as well as export and share them with your friends and colleagues. See it in action.

Enhanced Photo-Painting System: It's now easier than ever for photographers to create stunning paintings from photographs! Major improvements offer greater control when Underpainting, and the new Smart Strokes technology adds more intelligence during Auto-painting. See it in action.
