Exciting new update for Painter 12!

Today the Corel Corporation released the second major update for Corel® Painter™ 12. This update fixes some previous bugs, but the most exciting feature is the introduction of Flow Maps for Water Color enthusiasts. There is a descriptive post over at the Painter Factory which explains this new feature and why if you love Water Color and the new Real Wet Oils, you're going to love it.

You can go directly to the download page which contains all updates and patches for Painter 12 here. Additional information is available at the Corel site, and the detailed "Read Me" may be accessed here.

Skip Allen has created two excellent videos on the subject of Flow Maps. There is an overview video available here, and a more detailed video available here. Download this valuable update now, and start having fun with Flow Maps!

Don't forget! Before downloading and installing any update for Painter 12, export all your workspaces to a folder which resides outside of the program to ensure you do not lose any of your custom items.

After you've backed up your custom items by exporting the workspace, install the update, then reboot your computer. After rebooting, hold down the Shift key while launching the updated Painter 12 for the first time. In the dialog which appears, choose "All Workspaces", then click "OK". After Painter launches, Import your workspaces, and you'll be good to go. :)
